It’s not the guns, says Mitch McConnell
Sen. Mitch McConnell shattered leftist expectations that the GOP would join with Democrats on gun reform in the aftermath of the Uvalde, Texas school tragedy on Tuesday.
“In discussing how we might come together to target the problem of mental illness and school safety, we’ll get back at it next week and hope to have results,” McConnell said of a legislative approach to minimize mass shootings.
Trump weighs in
At a rally over the weekend, former President Donald Trump weighed in. “Whatever our differences may be on other issues, what on earth is stopping Democrats from immediately passing measures to ramp up school security,” he said.
Democrats have been clear that they do not want more police presence in schools, focusing only on gun control as a way to prevent mass shootings.
