In the wake of the mass shooting in Uvalde, Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) announced that he would be working with Senate Democrats on actions to curb the continuing gun violence crisis. On Wednesday, he admitted on Twitter that he won’t do a damn thing.

Cornyn was personally tapped by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to work with Senate Democrats on bipartisan gun reform legislation that would take meaningful action to prevent future mass shootings. The move is in response to a mass shooting that took the lives of 19 kids and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Texas, the state Cornyn represents.

The shooter was able to purchase an AR-15 assault rifle at the age of 18 just prior to the shooting.

If Americans had hope that Republicans were finally rethinking their stance on gun reform, Cornyn made it clear otherwise when he responded via Twitter to a right-wing radio host’s complaint about potential legislation.

Clearly, Cornyn had no intention of actually working with Senate Democrats to craft bipartisan gun reform legislation. This is all about making it appear that way and then pulling the rug out.

Americans responded to Cornyn by expressing their disgust and shaming him.

Republicans are never going to act to protect our kids from gun violence. The only way to actually do it will be to ban assault weapons and ban Republicans from ever holding elected office again.
