After Cornyn blames jeers at Texas GOP on ‘mob,’ gun rights group demands apology
Texan leads GOP Senate team on response to Uvalde massacre and insists he won’t trample Second Amendment rights.

WASHINGTON — Jeered at the Texas Republican convention for his role in Senate gun talks and drowned out by chants of “No red flags,” Sen. John Cornyn dismissed the booing GOP delegates as a “mob.”

That did not go over well with some gun owners. On Monday, one hard-line gun rights group demanded his apology “for mocking his law-abiding constituents.”

Cornyn had not responded to the demand as of Sunday evening.

“John Cornyn is the definition of a two-faced politician. He claims to support the Second Amendment, but is actually working to eviscerate our gun rights by cutting deals with anti-gun Democrats — and when his constituents publicly held him accountable, he called them a mob,” said Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights.

The group claims 4.5 million members and is demanding that “gun-free” school zones be abolished, insisting that would be a better response to the Uvalde school rampage on May 24, which left 19 children and two teachers dead, than anything under consideration by the bipartisan group Cornyn has been working with.

“I will not under any circumstance support new restrictions for law-abiding gun owners,” Cornyn assured delegates to the state GOP convention Friday in Houston. “That will always be a red line. Despite what some of you may have heard, the framework that we are working on is consistent with that red line.”

That he is holding a communist-designed weapon seems quite appropriate. That it has been the most used weapon in coups around the world makes it even more fitting.

Probably not.

I don't know. 15-20 years ago I would expect them to outnumber the gun nuts, but in recent years?

The sensible gun owners lack the passion of the others. As Cornyn’s example shows, there’s no talking to radicals. What’s far easier is for sensible owners to sit back and let the more caffeinated crowd fight their battles for them.
