Two hundred and fifty Republican donors placed an ad in the Dallas Morning News on Sunday declaring their support for the gun control efforts of Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).

Breitbart News reported on May 27 that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called on Sen. Cornyn to work with Democrats to achieve “bipartisan” gun control.

More than a year earlier, on April 20, 2021, Breitbart News highlighted a Politico story that indicated Cornyn was speaking to Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) in hopes of finding “common ground” on control. firearms.

The Hill reported that the 250 GOP donors used a Sunday ad in the Dallas Morning News to support McConnell’s selection of Cornyn to lead the gun control push.

The donors said, “He is the right man to lead this bipartisan effort, as he has demonstrated throughout his career.”

On June 3, Politico explained that Cornyn had indicated “it will be embarrassing” if the Senate can’t do something about Uvalde’s attack.
