Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tapped Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) to work with Democrats toward bipartisan gun control, Breitbart News noted May 27.
On June 5, 2022, 250 Republican donors took out an ad in the Dallas Morning News to show their support for Cornyn’s bipartisan gun control efforts.
On Jun 12, 2022, a gun control agreement was announced between Senate Democrats and Republicans.
The agreement deepens background checks for gun buyers under the age of 21, provides incentives for states to adopt red flag laws, and contains numerous mental health provisions.
Another aspect of the agreement would put in place a school safety measure designed to “help institute safety measures in and around primary and secondary schools, support school violence prevention efforts and provide training to school personnel and students.”
