Skip to comments.Sen. John Cornyn Counters Democrats: Enough Gun Control Already
Posted on 05/18/2020 12:10:36 PM PDT by rktman
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) countered a Democrat-led push for more regulations on ghost guns by making clear his belief that there is enough gun control already.
On May 15, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats are demanding background checks for ghost guns and kits containing parts that can be used to build guns.
The Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, supports the Democrat push.
Politico quoted Sen. Cornyn in a way that gave readers the impression that he also supported the advocacy. They reported that Cornyn might be open to background checks for gun-kit purchases based on Cornyn saying, I guess you can look at it that youre buying an assembled gun or an unassembled gun. To me, the same standard makes sense.
Breitbart News contacted Sen. Cornyns office to ask about the statement, and his office made clear that Cornyn opposes Democrats pressure for more gun control. He supports the laws as they are, differentiating between kits with 100 percent complete partsincluded receiversand kits containing parts that are only 80 percent complete.

I love re-election time!
It’s like maclame part deux. ‘Cept margabby has a D behind his name. Maclame should have. Maverick my butt!
Yep, election time. Cornyn is like the groundhog. Pops his head up every time he is up for election. Talks tough on the border and all that sort of thing.
We have a Cornyn sighting? Must be an election coming up since he is normally invisible.
A local radio guy nicknamed him “John Wayne McCornyn”.
He can’t be worse the the CT senator Blomeall.
No doubt from those "gagger" radio spots he put out his last reelection bid. They were horrible.
Cornyn = the Capt Obvious of the Senate
Yup. It's the only time Cornyn has to pretend he's "conservative".
Yep, during election years, John dons his cowboy hat and once again becomes for one brief shining moment “Big Bad John”.
“Maclame should have. Maverick my butt!”
Hot Start Johnny.
LOL! Review board——a what start by an admirals son? Nah.
| John Cornyn claims to be the 2nd most conservative member of the Senate.
Yet, as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, he
hand-selected these "Republican" candidates:
Also, when he had a chance to stop ObamaCare by supporting Ted Cruz' filibuster
and hid behind a meaningless vote later.
He pulled the same trick on the Senate amnesty bill
and again on raising the debt limit.
Is there anyone running against this RINO?
