600 GOP Donors Back John Cornyn’s Gun Control Campaign

Breitbart News reported on June 6 that 250 Republican donors signed a letter supporting Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) work with Democrats to secure bipartisan gun control.

On June 22, the Dallas Morning News noted that the number of signatories had increased to 600.

The letter says, in part, “We vote for Republican senators. We believe in the second amendment. Like many, we struggle to find good answers to our current problem of gun violence in America. »

Signatories voice support for red flag laws, expanding background checks and raising the legal age to purchase guns to 21.

“Most law enforcement experts believe these measures would make a difference,” the letter said. “And recent polls of fellow Tories suggest there is strong support for such gun safety measures.”

The language of Cornyn’s gun control agreement was revealed on Tuesday, and Breitbart News pointed out that the bill expands background checks on some gun buyers, uses taxpayer dollars to pushing states to enact red flag laws and expanding the nation’s Instant Criminal Background Check (NICS) system banned list buyers using domestic violence laws to cover up romantic relationships.
