“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski confronted Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Monday by asking why he won’t address the growing problem of white men committing gun violence in America if he is so worried about terrorism.

“Why aren’t you working on white men with guns?” Brzezinski asked the former Pennsylvania senator after he chastised American Muslims for not speaking out against their religion’s radical factions.

“I mean, come on, Rick Santorum. You know better, you’re a smart guy,” she continued. “You’re telling Muslim-Americans they all need to come out and talk about the tiny percentage of their community that has quite frankly wreaked havoc but yet you look at the data of white men with guns wreaking havoc on this country. Why aren’t white men all coming froward? Why don’t you call on them to do that? I mean, come on.”

Santorum said he is “doing a lot of things to solve gun violence,” to which Brzezinski replied, “You’re ringing bells.”
