Not So Fast: GOA Says Sen. John Cornyn's Gun Control Support Makes Him Unfit for GOP Leadership

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) announced a bid for Senate Leader, and Gun Owners of America quickly took the offensive against him, noting his support for various gun controls throughout his years in office.

In the summer of 2022, Breitbart News reported that President Biden specifically named Sen. Cornyn as someone he wanted to thank for the passage of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, a gun control package that Cornyn worked with Democrats to fashion.

On Friday, June 17, 2022, Cornyn was booed at a Republican Party convention for working with the Democrats to place more gun control on the backs of law-abiding citizens:

GOA director of federal affairs Aidan Johnston responded to Cornyn’s current aspirations to leadership via an X post which said in part,  “Americans deserve someone who will refuse to compromise with their God-given Second Amendment rights. And unfortunately, John Cornyn is always, always, always cutting deals with our Second Amendment.”
