In the wake of the horrible Orlando shooting, the left has decided to once again push for their failed gun control agenda. The President is refusing to even talk about the threat of radical Islam and instead is advocating for ineffective policies that do nothing more than violate the 2nd amendment.
Luckily, we have a GOP-controlled Congress who won’t go for any sort of measure to take guns from law-abiding citizens.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says he be may be “open” to placing new gun controls on law-abiding citizens following the terror attack on Pulse Orlando.
According to CBS News’s Steven Portnoy, McConnell has a meeting with FBI director James Comey and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on Wednesday. Portnoy Tweeted that McConnell has signaled he may be willing to consider new gun controls after that meeting.
The suspected gunman in the Orlando attack passed background checks for his guns, submitted to a waiting period before picking up his handgun, and held a Florida Security Officer license and a Statewide Firearms License. There is no word on what additional gun controls McConnell might be “open” to discussing.
McConnell is probably just posturing. He knows he won’t get any gun control measure passed by the Senate, much less the GOP-led House. Perhaps he’s signaling to the President that he should go ahead with executive orders on gun control?
