Mitch McConnell votes ‘yes’ to Senate gun control deal

CBS correspondent Scott MacFarlane reports that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a “yes” on the Senate gun control deal.

On May 26, Breitbart News reported that McConnell had asked Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) to work with Democrats to achieve bipartisan gun control.

On June 12, a bipartisan agreement on gun control in the Senate was announced.

Breitbart News reported that the agreement includes a requirement for an “investigation period” during background checks for gun purchases for people under 21. The agreement does not contain any stipulation on how long this “investigation period” will last or how long the background check will last.

June 14, MacFarlane tweeted“Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Announces He Will Support Bipartisan Framework on New Gun Control and School Safety Legislation.”

MacFarlane further noted McConnell’s position, quoting him partially: “the bipartisan group has done its best” to reach an agreement on gun control.
