Here we go.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday said he will likely vote for the gun control legislation that 10 Republicans agreed to over the weekend.
“For myself, I’m comfortable with the framework and if the legislation ends up reflecting the framework, I’ll be supportive,” McConnell told reporters on Tuesday.
McConnell is the 11th Republican senator to announce support for the gun control measure which means the Democrats easily have enough votes to overcome the filibuster.

RINOs like McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Collins, Toomey and others always fold to Democrat demands.
A group of bipartisan senators on Sunday reached an agreement on principle for gun legislation which includes ‘red flag’ laws.
10 Republicans joined the Democrats and bowed to their demands.
“The group on the release includes Republican Sens. John Cornyn of Texas, Thom Tillis and Richard Burr of North Carolina, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mitt Romney of Utah and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.” – CNN reported.
The actual legislation has not been written yet.
Last week the House of Representatives approved sweeping gun control legislation that bans high-capacity magazines and raises the age to purchase an ‘assault rifle’ to 21.
The House passed the gun legislation 223-204 – 5 Republicans voted “yea” – 2 Democrats voted “nay.”
The Red Flag Laws by Democrats are not meant to stop crime. They are only meant to take guns from legal gun owners.
