The Republican Party has now made it even easier to restrict Second Amendment rights.
Democrats are itching for a political victory amid two years of constant legislative failures and an inability to pass Joe Biden’s entire political agenda. A recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas was the perfect tragedy for Democrats to exploit as it provided a renewed push for gun control.
Negotiations began and more Senators signaled a willingness to work on a bipartisan level to produce an anti-gun bill. Who even needs the Democrat Party after all!
Needless to say, this sudden agreeance between both political parties on an issue so monumental just goes to show the growing divide between establishment RINOs like Mitch McConnell, and the America First sect who would never consider a gun control bill.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell offered his support Tuesday to a bipartisan agreement on legislation to combat gun violence, saying he is “comfortable” with the announced framework.
“If the legislation ends up reflecting what the framework indicates, I’ll be supporting it,” McConnell said.
NEW: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says he supports a bipartisan framework on gun safety and will likely vote for legislation that reflects it.
This would make 11 Republicans in favor of the bill which would likely pass the Senate.

On Sunday, Senate negotiators including Sens. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and John Cornyn (R-TX) announced they had reached a framework for the yet-to-be-written legislation, which they said will include funding to help states create and implement red flag laws, additional mental health and school safety resources, and closing the so-called boyfriend loophole, a gap in federal law barring spouses, but not dating partners, convicted of domestic abuse from gun ownership.
McConnell had previously indicated that he supported Cornyn’s involvement in the negotiations, but in remarks to reporters Tuesday, he backed the deal Cornyn helped reach.
This would make him the eleventh Republican to support Democrats’ gun restrictions.
The other ten RINO Senators willing to destroy Second Amendment rights for law-abiding citizens include:
Sens. Thom Tillis, Roy Blunt, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham, Rob Portman, Mitt Romney, Pat Toomey, and Cornyn.
Their support would allow matching legislation to clear the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi indicated her willingness to pass the bill in the House, although it is much more narrow than gun violence legislation recently passed in that chamber. Joe Biden also announced his support of the deal but noted it didn’t restrict the Second Amendment enough.
Support from McConnell, the Senate’s top Republican, may lead to additional GOP support for the legislation in the Senate once it is written.
Once again, Republicans threw in the towel.
