By "vigorously oppose," Republican elites mean "put up a stink and then sign everyone's rights away to the government."
The Senate on Tuesday broke through nearly 30 years of stalemate on gun control legislation by voting 64 to 34 to advance an 80-page gun safety bill to respond to the mass shootings in Buffalo, N.Y., and Uvalde, Texas, that left 31 people dead, including 19 school children.
The Senate voted to proceed to the bill just more than an hour after negotiators unveiled its text, giving lawmakers little time to digest its details.
The Daily Wire lists exactly what the bill would do, including provisions to grant the federal government the ability to deny you weapons based on "red flags" it defines.
(Hint: Believing in the Constitution is a "red flag")
Notably, the 80-page legislation includes language on highly controversial so-called red flag laws.
According to Fox News, the bill "provides grants for states that implement their own red flag laws and offers additional funding for both school safety measures and mental health services."
Cornyn, though, claimed on the Senate floor Tuesday that the bill "would not create a national red flag law, adding that states could receive the funding regardless of whether they enact such a program," The Hill reported.
"The measure also creates penalties for straw purchases of firearms, requires more gun sellers to register as Federally Licensed Firearm Dealers and closes the so-called boyfriend loophole by prohibiting gun access for people convicted of domestic abuse against an intimate partner," Fox News noted of the gun control legislation.
