John Cornyn, Chris Murphy, Dianne Feinstein Announce Gun Control Bill

On Thursday Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX), Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced a new gun control bill which centers on background checks for gun purchases.

The bill was also signed by Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Dean Heller (R-NV).

Fox News Congressional reporter Chad Pergram tweeted that the bill is designed to “strengthen the background check system” in the wake of the Texas church attack.

The Texas church attacker passed a background check for his gun, although he had a conviction that should have prevented gun possession. He received his conviction via a court-martial while in the Air Force but NPR reported that the Air Force “mishandled” the matter by failing to report it to the National Instant Background Check System (NICS), which is the system through which background checks are conducted.

The Air Force investigation into where and how the breakdown on information reporting occurred is still underway. In the meantime, Sens. Cornyn, Murphy, Feinstein, Blumenthal, Shaheen, Hatch, and Heller are pushing for a new law.

Murphy is ecstatic. He tweeted that the legislation is the most significant gun law promoted since Sen. Joe Manchin (D-NW) pushed universal background checks as a response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack:

Because more background check laws would Not have prevented these shootings. 

Feinstein:  32 years in office (1992), 84 years old;   It's time she retires and gives up on trying to get everyone to turn in their guns.
