Republican and Democratic senators negotiating over a legislative proposal to respond to mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, Texas, will hold a Zoom call Tuesday in hopes of reaching a deal on a basic framework by next week.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), who has been tasked by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to negotiate with Democrats, said the talks have been ongoing on the phone and in person.
The group is focused on a proposal to incentivize states to establish red flag laws to prohibit individuals who are deemed dangerous to themselves or others from possessing fire arms.
The senators are also looking at legislation to expand background checks for firearms sales and transfers.
To all those who have been bashing the NRA, assist on its dismantling and swore they could do a better job, here is your chance to prove it.
We expect daily reports of your achievements.
Get to it.
We are taking a rest on this one and expect you to not only stop this onslaught on our Rights but we want to be able to buy full auto weapons and silencers without the hassle of background checks by Christmas.
