The New York Times went to every Republican Senator and asked them what it was they thought about gun control in the wake of the recent mass shooting in Texas, some said they were open to the idea, others said they were completely opposed, and some declined to respond. 

Here are all the Republican Senators who are open to the idea of gun control as well as those who are putting their foot down when it comes to gun control:

Each and every one of these Senators and House of Representatives needs to read the Constitution (including the first 10 Amendments called the BILL OF RIGHTS!) They all seem to have forgotten this document since they went to Washington DC.

Every elected? Senator and Representative should be required to take a mandatory educational/safety handgun, rifle and shotgun class before they can attempt to create and pass laws on gun control. Our existing tenant in our White House and his vice president and all news reporters and writers should also do the same. Then they can be knowledgeable and educated with first hand experience when they attempt to discuss and create gun control laws. They will finally realize how stupid they have been sounding and I will nolonger roll my eyes and feel embarrassed for them.

Manchin-Toomey was a worthless piece of Legislation. You already have to have a background check at Gun Shows and Internet Sales only ship to an FFL, who does the Background Check.

Nothing Democrats are proposing will lessen the chance of another shooting. From the Arvada Theater to Uvalde, the Shooter passed a Background Check. If some Authority doesn’t enter the person into the NICS system, they don’t get flagged.

From Cleveland Elementary in 1979 to Uvalde, the problem has always been a Mental Health Issue, in the case of every Shooting. Until Mental Health is addressed, Senators and Representatives might as well masturbate for all the good it will do.

It’s Not A Gun Problem, It’s A Psycho Problem.
