In the wake of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, a group of ‘moderate’ Republicans appeared ready to sell out to the left on gun control.  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told a small group of Senators to strike a compromise with Democrats on gun control.

After only three weeks, it appears that enough Republicans have caved to give Democrats a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate to pass a gun control bill.

“A bipartisan group of senators announced an agreement on gun control Sunday, including providing more resources for mental health needs, school safety, and more.

The announcement includes the support of 10 Republican senators, which is needed for the upper congressional chamber to overcome the legislative filibuster in the 50-50 senate. It was praised, notably, by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a longtime proponent of gun control measures.

In the statement, the group said its plan “increases needed mental health resources, improves school safety and support for students, and helps ensure dangerous criminals and those who are adjudicated as mentally ill can’t purchase weapons.”

Republicans who support the measure include Sens. Lindsey Graham, (S.C.), Mitt Romney (Utah), John Cornyn (Texas), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) Bill Cassidy (La.), Susan Collins (Maine), Rob Portman (Ohio), and Pat Toomey (Pa.).”

The bill would make it more difficult for people under 21 to purchase a gun by creating an “enhanced review process” which would delay the purchase by checking juvenile and mental health records, including checks with state databases and local law enforcement.

The bill could also provide support for red flag laws, which currently exist in 19 states and allow people to petition a court to confiscate someone’s weapons.  The law has been described as unconstitutional.
