Senate Republican Pushing to Expand Gun Control
This latest gun control proposal could result in more law-abiding Americans losing their right to self-defense. Details are still emerging, but this proposal would coerce states to hand over your private medical records to the Federal Government.
Fox news reports:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Backed by the National Rifle Association, the Senate's No. 2 Republican leader is introducing legislation that would reward states for sending more information about residents with serious mental problems to the federal background check system for firearms purchasers.
The bill promoted Wednesday by Sen. John Cornyn, who has an A-plus rating from the NRA for his gun rights record, is far more modest than a Senate measure expanding background check requirements that the organization and Republicans helped defeat two years ago. Cornyn's proposal also is narrower than a measure a top Senate Democrat announced this week.
