If you need any additional proof that Mitch McConnell is is a blood-sucking RINO willing to sell his supposedly conservative principles down the river for political clout, well here it is.
The Senate Minority Leader “encouraged” his Republican colleagues to take bipartisan action on gun control, bypassing the Second Amendment and alienating the conservative voter base — the exact opposite tactic that should be taken before the midterms.
McConnell specifically requested Sen. Cornyn to work with Sens. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) to “find a consensus on some legislation to respond to the shooting in Texas,” CNN reported.
“I’ve encouraged him to talk to Sen. Sinema, Sen. Murphy and others who are interested in trying to get an outcome that’s directly related to the problem,” McConnell said of Tuesday’s mass school shooting. “I am hopeful that we could come up with a bipartisan solution that’s directly related to the facts of this awful massacre.”
Sen. Chuck Schumer told his Democrat colleagues on Wednesday he will push off a gun control vote until he believes there are enough votes to overcome the Senate’s 60 vote threshold.
“One nation under guns. That is simply heartbreaking — heartbreaking to think that this is the legacy that older generations are leaving behind for young Americans, one nation under guns,” Schumer said from the Senate floor.
McConnell’s demand comes after 19 children and two adults were killed in a mass shooting at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school on Tuesday. The shooter was 18 years of age and old enough to legally purchase a firearm but broke several gun laws in the act.
Can any McConnell supporters state the clear differences between his version of conservatism and the current liberalism of today’s Democrats?
The Republican Party is in such disarray they’re willing to acquiesce and adopt far-left talking about years later when it’s now socially acceptable to do so. Five years ago it would’ve been unimaginable for a GOP leader to advocate for limiting the Second Amendment — but alas!
McConnell’s demand for bipartisan gun control is merely another example of precisely why American voters desperately need to elect America First candidates before they take all our civil liberties from us.
