Senate Republican leader McConnell expressed support for bipartisan gun control

Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) Announced his support Tuesday (D-Conn.) For a bipartisan gun control measure made by Senators John Cornin (R-Texas) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.).

“I would be supportive if the law was reflected [gun control] The framework suggests, “McConnell said.” This is a bipartisan move forward, and it further illustrates to the American people that we can work together to make progress for the country, as we have done on issues such as infrastructure and postal reform. “

The framework of the gun control bill includes funding to help states implement the “red flag” law, which allows a court to bar a person who buys a gun from “a significant danger to himself or others”; It closes an empty aisle that allows some domestic abusers to buy guns; It invests in mental health and safety services for schools; It improves background checks for those under 21; And it expands mental health services across the country

Many of the provisions of our Child Protection Act, which were approved by the House of Representatives last week, are not included in the framework. Raising the minimum age for buying a rifle to 21, eliminating the sale of “high-powered magazines” and amending the rules on keeping guns at home are among the provisions not proposed by the Senate.

Among the ten Republican senators who have discussed the framework. If all 50 Democratic senators, as well as structure negotiators, take the final word on the bill, it will gain enough support to end the debate, paving the way for it to pass in the Senate.

John Cornin (Texas), Thom Tillis (North Carolina), Roy Blunt (Md.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Richard Barr (North Carolina), Mitt Romney (Utah), Bill Cassidy (LA), Susanna Collins (I) ), Lindsay Graham (SC), and Pat Tommy (Pennsylvania) are among the ten Republican senators who have reportedly backed the bill (Penn.). In support of McConnell, the Senate now has 11 Republican senators.

The last time Congress passed a gun control law was in 1994, when it passed the “Assault Weapons Prohibition”, which expired in 2004 and has not been renewed despite repeated efforts.

The latest plan comes after two big shootings. In Buffalo, New York, on May 14, a white 18-year-old gunman allegedly shot 13 people, killing 10 people, including 11 blacks and two white victims. According to NPR, the gunman legally bought his rifle from a vintage gun shop in his hometown. Despite state police demanding a psychological assessment for the 18-year-old in June, the suspect passed the store’s background test.

Just ten days later, another 18-year-old suspect opened fire on a Texas elementary school, killing 19 children and two adults. Texas police said the teenager bought his pistol legally. In a gunfight with police and a Border Patrol agent, the gunman died.
