Senate Reaches Agreement on Gun Control Bill… Here is the list of Republican senators who caved.
Published on 13.6.2022
In the wake of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, a group of “moderate” Republicans appeared poised to cave to the left on gun control. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has asked a small group of senators to find a compromise with Democrats on gun control.
After just three weeks, it looks like enough Republicans have caved in to give Democrats enough of a majority in the Senate to push through a gun control bill.
“A bipartisan group of senators on Sunday announced a deal on gun control, including plans to provide more resources for mental health needs and school safety.

The announcement includes the support of 10 Republican senators, which is needed for the upper house of Congress to overcome the legislative filibuster in a 50-50 Senate. She was praised, in particular, by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (DN.Y.), a longtime supporter of gun control measures.
In its statement, the group said its plan “increases needed mental health resources, improves safe schools and supports for students, and helps ensure that dangerous criminals and those deemed mentally ill cannot not buy weapons.
Republicans who support the measure understand the senses. Lindsey Graham, (SC), Mitt Romney (Utah), John Cornyn (Texas), Thom Tillis (NC), Richard Burr (NC), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Bill Cassidy (La.), Susan Collins (Maine ), Rob Portman (Ohio), and Pat Toomey (Pa.)”.
The bill would make it harder for people under 21 to buy a gun by creating an “enhanced review process” that would delay the purchase by checking minors and mental health records, including including checks with state databases and local law enforcement.
The bill could also lend support to red flag laws, which currently exist in 19 states and allow a court to seek the confiscation of a person’s guns. This law has been called unconstitutional.
