On Friday GOP Leader Mitch McConnell announced that RINO Republicans will concede to Democrat demands to tighten gun control legislation. This comes days after the Uvalde, Texas school massacre.
McConnell told CNN Republicans will meet with “moderates” like Senator Chris Murphy to work out new legislation that will do nothing to prevent dangerous psychopaths from killing children in schools.
Murphy is famous for pushing legislation to REMOVE ALL POLICE from schools — a deadly proposal that would have cost more lives.
Once again, McConnell does not represent his voting base and he doesn’t care.
Epoch Times reported:
Some Republicans are considering conceding to Democrats’ demands to tighten federal gun laws in the wake of a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left at least 19 dead.
Democrats have long pushed for stricter gun control at a federal level but Republicans, citing Second Amendment rights, have long pushed back against these efforts. Now, some Republicans seem to be open to softening this stance.
Most prominently, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said during an interview with CNN that he had instructed Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) to negotiate with some centrist Democrats, including Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), to try to hammer out a compromise bill.
“I’ve encouraged him to talk to Senator Sinema, Senator Murphy, and others who are interested in trying to get an outcome that’s directly related to the problem,” McConnell said, adding that he is “hopeful that we could come up with a bipartisan solution that’s directly related to the facts of this awful massacre.”
McConnell was anxious to emphasize that he was not pushing for legislation that would advance a partisan Democrat agenda, but only to find a legislative solution directly related to the circumstances of the Uvalde shooting.
“What I’ve asked Senator Cornyn to do is to meet with the Democrats who are interested in getting a bipartisan solution and come up with a proposal, if possible, that’s crafted to meet this particular problem,” he said.
McConnell’s lukewarm support for a compromise package could be a welcome sign for Democrats, who will need the support of at least 10 Republicans to overcome the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold.
