John Cornyn Booed at Texas GOP Convention


Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), the lead Republican negotiator on the bipartisan gun safety package, told a home-state crowd at the Texas GOP convention on Friday that he had “fought and kept President Biden’s gun grabbing wish list off the table,” yet still received boos from the crowd, CNN reports.

Said Cornyn: “Democrats pushed for an assault weapons ban, I said no. They tried to get a new three-week mandatory waiting period for all gun purchases, I said no. Universal background checks, magazine bans, licensing requirements, the list goes on and on and on. And I said no, no, 1,000 times no.”

Texas Tribune: Caught between an A+ NRA rating and a nation reeling from shootings, John Cornyn is key to whether gun safety deal advances.
