Mitch McConnell has tasked one of his top deputies, John Cornyn, to lead Bipartisan talks on gun control.
The reports that have surfaced so far have claimed that the assault weapons ban is off the table but it is unclear what gun control measures are being discussed.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has kept the upper chamber’s negotiations on gun reform narrowly focused by tasking one of his top deputies, conservative Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), to take the Republican lead in the talks.
Cornyn’s participation in the negotiations opened the door for another reliable Trump ally, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), to play a greater role in the negotiations. This has balanced the influence of Republican negotiators who are seen as more moderate and more likely to endorse reforms that could wind up roiling the pro-gun rights GOP base.
There is plenty of skepticism that McConnell and Cornyn, who have received high grades from gun rights groups, will sign off on a bipartisan agreement. The two GOP senators have been outspoken in opposition to gun control after other mass shootings.
This is McConnell @ work to sell-out MAGA/UltraMAGA—-there is zero need to meet with Democrats on anything related to guns—until we have law and order in our cities and hometowns there is NOTHING to discuss—Cornyn is a McConnell running dog and Tom Tillis hates Trump and is not an ally
