After a bipartisan deal on gun reform legislation was announced on Sunday, Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene took aim at GOP senators.
Ten Senate Republicans and ten Senate Democrats collaborated on bipartisan legislation that would be the first substantial effort by Congress in years to address the national issue of mass shootings and gun violence. President Joe Biden and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, both Democrats from New York, praised the agreement, which is anticipated to pass if all 10 Republicans vote yes.
“Senate Republicans exemplify everything that is wrong with the Republican Party. Too many of them, much more than the Progressive Democrats in the House, have aided Joe Biden in passing his America Last agenda “The Georgia Republican, a fervent supporter of former President Donald Trump, expressed his displeasure.
“For America to survive, the Republican Party must undergo a significant transformation. Alternatively, the GOP will not “Greene went on to say.
‘Sell Your Gun Rights’ is a campaign that encourages people to sell their firearms.
Greene posted a video on Gettr in which she attacks Senate Republicans on the issue of guns, notably GOP Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Graham has long been regarded as a Trump supporter, but he has recently been under fire from the former president and his followers. The Republican senator from South Carolina is one of the co-sponsors of the bipartisan gun reform accord.
Greene captioned the video she published on Gettr Saturday afternoon, “BREAKING NEWS: Lindsey Graham is joining forces with Democrats to sell you your gun rights.”
Greene stated in the video that Graham was “willing to violate due process” by supporting the bipartisan agreement’s “red flag” elements. She stated, “This is everything that is wrong with Republicans in the Republican Party.”
Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado, a Republican, also chastised the Senate’s ten Republicans. “Hey Siri, show me a list of Senate RINOS,” she tweeted, referring to a list of Republican senators who backed the bipartisan agreement.
Another school shooting has occurred.
The talks between Republican and Democratic senators started after a mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24, which killed 19 children and two instructors. Kentucky Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on May 26 that he was “hopeful” that a bipartisan solution could be reached. He said he’d assigned Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn with leading negotiations on his side of the aisle.
Cornyn and Republican Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina, as well as Democratic Senators Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Chris Murphy of Connecticut, led the conversation.
The following senators signed off on the bipartisan deal, in addition to the key negotiators: Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Chris Coons of Delaware, Martin Heinrich of New Mexico, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Mark Kelly of Arizona, and Angus King of Maine.
Criminal Background Checks That Are Tougher
The bipartisan agreement includes financial support for state “red flag” legislation that attempt to keep firearms out of the hands of potentially dangerous individuals, among other features. It also includes stricter criminal background checks for gun buyers under the age of 21, including a review of their youth criminal records.
Crackdowns on so-called “straw purchases” by people buying guns for friends or family members who could not pass a background check were also included in the legislation. A proposal to extend community mental health services is also being considered.
“I’d like to express my gratitude to Senator Chris Murphy and the bipartisan group for their proposal on gun safety. It does not address all of my concerns, but it does represent critical steps in the right way “On Sunday, Biden sent out a tweet. “There are no more excuses for delay with bipartisan support. Let’s get this done, shall we? “He went on to say.
Romney issued a statement stating his support for the agreement. “Our strategy saves lives while also safeguarding law-abiding Americans’ constitutional rights. We are optimistic about gaining wide bipartisan support and enacting our commonsense idea “According to the Utah Republican.
According to Cassidy, the agreement safeguarded Americans’ ability to bear arms as well as due process.
“I participated in these talks to ensure that any agreement addressed unlawful gun violence while preserving due process and protecting law-abiding Americans’ right to bear arms under the 2nd Amendment. That pledge is upheld by this agreement “In a tweet, the Louisiana Republican asserted.
