McConnell Greenlights Discussion on Gun Control Legislation

The Senate Minority Leader revealed he tapped Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), one of his close advisers, to work with Democrats on a bill.

According to The Hill:

McConnell said he is hopeful of reaching a bipartisan agreement to respond to the recent mass shootings in Buffalo, N.Y., and Uvalde, Texas. But the leader cautioned the negotiations should not veer off onto proposals not directly related to the recent violence in Texas that left 21 people dead, including 19 school children.

“I met with Sen. Cornyn this morning,” he told a reporter for CNN, noting that Cornyn traveled to his home state Wednesday to meet with state officials and law enforcement in Uvalde.

“I’ve encouraged him to talk to Sen. Sinema, Sen. Murphy and others who are interested in trying to get an outcome that’s directly related to the problem,” he said, referring to Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.).

“And so I am hopeful that we could come up with a bipartisan solution that’s directly related to the facts of this awful massacre,” he said.

McConnell emphasized he’s interested in coming up with legislation that directly addresses the circumstances of the school shooting in Texas and does not advance the Democratic agenda.

An evenly split group of legislators, including Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) reportedly met this afternoon to begin the process.

It’s not about what McConnel wants to do it’s about what McConnels CHI-COM masaters want him to do.

This is why I left the democrats during the
Clinton fiasco, the republicans in 2020 and am now Independent. They are all a bunch useless overpaid men and women. Some are evil as sin and dishonest. Never in 83 years did
I expect to see a Communist/MARXIST America.

Why is it that politicians feel they have to pass some meaningless, usually harmful legislation in response to these tragedies before the bodies are even cool? What happened to approaching the causes of these events with rational thought and clear and thorough evaluation?

Better known as “Feel good Legislation” makes em feel good for doing something even though it does nothing to counter the problems.

Because it is easier to pass when the crisis is hot, that is why the dems motto is never waste a good crisis and if one doesn’t exist create one. Not to sure these shooting dont have outside influence creating them

Actually, the frequency & timings suggest something akin to MK Ultra programming at work here; they’re just too “convenient”.

Well, 1st off, leftists don’t THINK, they EMOTE, so that’s already off the table. 2nd, the PTB HAVE to disarm us, to get their NWO fully out in the open, so these are ALWAYS with an end goal of confiscation, regardless what gets said aloud, in public. 3rd, they don’t care about past or future victims, only the agenda; they mouth the words, but like Milli Vanilli, they’re just lip syncing. This is the “party of hate, murder, & crime” of which you speak. They make the Mafia look like nice guys.

It doesn’t hurt to talk. Maybe they can get the schools to use the unspent COVID money they were given to fortify security, or address the mental health issues they may have even contributed to (making people hate each other, financial distress at home, social media bullying).

Stop talking sense like that; it scares leftists. They don’t understand it anyway.

“Chinese State Media Demands US Citizens Be Disarmed …The official Chinese government news agency, Xinhua, has demanded the US immediately adopt stricter gun control measures to reduce the number of firearms the US populace is permitted to possess. The Chinese state-controlled media’s statement, titled “Innocent Blood Demands No Delay for US Gun Control,” is primarily focused on the Newtown tragedy in which 26 Americans were killed by a mad gunman. Twenty of the victims were young children. The Chinese government stated, “Their blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control.” – Breitbart

“Chinese State Media Demands US Citizens Be Disarmed, Xinhua, demands US immediately adopt gun control on US populace possess. CCP media’s statement, “Innocent Blood Demands No Delay, US Gun Control,” CCP McConnell is told to comply; as puppets dance for Bejing’s strings.

McConnell is a slave to the China government and the globalist. He is no patriot and doesn’t give a damn about what jo and ho are doing to destroy our government. Cronyn is no better

McConnel has to do what the liberals tell him to do if he want’s to keep his wife’s Chinese cargo ships afloat. What a disgrace another RINO.

There is absolutely no conservative principle or American institution that Yertle will not sell off a slice at a time.

There’s no “bipartisan” when all the ones involved are “uniparty”! I notice you didn’t tap an ACTUAL conservative/Republican; RINOs don’t count as “bipartisan”. We don’t need more restrictions on our rights; what we need is more accountability from these undisciplined, mentally unstable & entitled little brats running loose in adult bodies, but emotional 3y/o’s!

Anyone that sells out law abiding American citizens rights should be charged with treason. I don’t care what God given, Constitutionally PROTECTED rights it is either. More Americans are killed by drunk drivers than people with semi automatic rifles. Rights are rights and they are NOT privileges.

We don’t have gun problems in America, we have heart issues. If your heart is evil, you will commit evil acts.
