Via AAN:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is now reportedly encouraging conversations between Democrats and Republicans on the subject of new gun control legislation.

As The Daily Caller reports:

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is encouraging bipartisan conversations about gun control legislation in the aftermath of a Texas elementary school shooting that killed 21 people, including 19 children.

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. I am hopeful that we could come up with a bipartisan solution that’s directly related to the facts of this awful massacre,” McConnell told CNN of Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn’s interest in red-flag legislation. Cornyn, a long-time McConnell ally, served as GOP Whip from 2015-2019 and could likely convince enough Republicans to support a bill to overcome a filibuster.

Red-flag laws, or extreme risk protection orders, allow law enforcement officials to seek court orders for the purpose of temporarily seizing firearms owned by individuals who appear to be at risk of committing violence. The shooter in Uvalde, Texas repeatedly posted pictures of guns on social media, and cut his face with knives. Police were dispatched to his house on several occasions.

Several Republican senators have previously expressed interest in red-flag laws, which have been passed in 19 states and Washington, D.C., according to the left-wing Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott introduced a bipartisan red-flag law with Democratic Rhode Island Sen. Jack Reed and Independent Maine Sen. Angus King in 2021, although it has not passed out of committee. Scott signed similar legislation as Governor of Florida in 2018 in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting.

Is McConnell preparing to betray conservatives on gun control? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

“Shall not be infringed” is pretty darned absolute, in terms Biden and the other communists on both sides of the aisle should be able to understand. In this case, there appears to have been plenty of opportunity for due process to occur.

It doesn’t matter what the Government tries to do about the 2nd Amendment. It is the foundation of our freedom. It will not be Infringed upon by this administration. And you can take that to the bank! Nuff’said.

I’ve been letting his crap slide for several years but this is the last straw. I’ll support any halfway decent conservative to replace this “settle at any cost” compromiser. Democrats never compromise. Time to say no regardless of the cost.

True, but then admitting that will leave the Denorats nothing to talk about. How bout talking about getting us energy independent again. Begging Saudi and the rest of the. oil producers to supply us. We get everything now from Chania. November is coming.

When will it come out, that this guy is a Democrat yes man? You who vote for him should think about it. He never got over McCain’s loss. Republicans should not think of him as a true Republican. Has he ever had a job outside of congress?

Looks like the WEF and the NWO has gotten to (Threatened) Mr. McConnell. It probably did not take much since he is a demoncrat posing as a conservative anyway. If the NWO is going to succeed, they have to disarm America like they have the other countries that are already living under their boot. Their freedom has been taken away, and that is what they plan to do to us. What do you think this school shooting was all about? And all of the liberal idiots take to the street to do their dirty work for them. Liberals are the most dangerous people on the planet because their brains are wired weird.

Please explain to me just how any new gun legislation is going to keep people that do not follow any laws will stop these criminals from committing mass shootings? These politicians have been in Congress way too long and need to be replaced with common sense congressman and congresswoman in November.

Moscow Mitch, Turtle Boy or what ever you want to call him, is still the same backstabbing POS that he’s always been and should have been removed from the Senate a long time ago. He likes his biscuits buttered on both sides.

There are no discussions regarding the 2nd Amendment. It’s the cornerstone of our freedom. It can’t be overturned. It will divide our country and may start a Civil war.
