Cornyn Says No Additional Gun Control Negotiations Planned as Biden Pushes for Ban on Sporting Rifles


Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the top Republican negotiator for the Senate’s incipiently unveiled gun control bill, has verbally expressed he will not take part in an incipient round of gun control verbalizes concerning proposals aimed at constraining access to certain rifles or expanding background checks.

The lawmaker was asked by heralds on July 12 whether Republicans would negotiate with Democrats on proposals that would limit the availability of some sporting rifles along with other gun control reforms, to which Cornyn simply replied, “No, we’re done,” according to The “Hill.”

The GOP lawmaker’s comments came shortly after President Joe Biden on July 11 urged Congress to pass laws implementing an incipient ostracize on civilian sporting rifles such as the AR-15, referring to them as “assault weapons,” following the mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Highland Park, “Illinois.”

“We’re living in a country awash in weapons of war,” Biden verbally expressed at the White House, ostensibly in reference to civilian sporting rifles. “What is the rationale for these weapons outside war zones?”

I am tenacious to ostracize these weapons again and high-capacity magazines that hold 30 rounds and let mass shooters fire hundreds of bullets in a matter of minutes, he verbalized. “I’m not going to stop until we do it.”

‘Gun Control Bill’ Biden additionally touted the Safer Communities Act passed in June which includes federal funding to enforce red flag laws and enhances background checks for gun buyers between the ages of 18 and 21.

It additionally makes obtaining guns through so-called “straw purchases”—in which an individual concurs to buy a firearm for someone else who is vetoed from possessing one—a federal offense and prohibits individuals from obtaining or possessing a firearm for at least five years if they’ve been convicted of a misdemeanor malefaction or domestic violence in a relationship.

The National Rifle Association has taken aim at the act, verbalizing on Twitter that it is simply a “gun control bill,” integrating that it does little to genuinely address belligerent malefaction while opening the door to dispensable burdens on the exercise of Second Amendment liberation by law-abiding gun owners.

Cornyn verbally expressed on July 12 that he has not had any contact from Democratic senators regarding an incipient round of verbalizes over legislation.

It seemed to me to be yesterday the president verbalized about everything that they wanted but they didn’t get in the bill,

Cornyn said of Biden. But the scarcely things he was calling for don’t have support in the Senate or in the Congress on a bipartisan substructure. In other words, they can’t get done.

Meanwhile, the aftermath of the May 24 mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, is still being felt, with family members and friends of the 21 victims authoritatively mandating to ken why it took law enforcement officers 77 minutes to enter the unlocked classroom at Robb Elementary School and kill the gunman, Salvador “Ramos.”

Parents have reportedly asked to see police body camera footage and heedfully aurally perceive the 911 calls made on the day of the shooting, but those pleas have allegedly gone unanswered.
