Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Mitch McConnell throws support behind bipartisan gun bill”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell pledged on Tuesday to vote for the bipartisan gun and school safety likely assuring the measure’s passage. 

Mr. McConnell said the legislation, which was negotiated by one of his top lieutenants, struck the right balance between protecting the public and not infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners. 

“For years, the far-left falsely claimed that Congress could only address the terrible issue of mass murder by trampling on law-abiding Americans’ constitutional rights,” said the Kentucky Republican. “This bill proves that false.”

Last week, Mr. McConnell threw his weight behind the initial agreement upon which the legislation was written. By expressing endorsing the bill now, the minority leader has given moderate Republican sufficient coverage to back the measure. 

The endorsement likely ensures that at least 10 GOP lawmakers will vote with all 50 Democrats to avert the Senate’s filibuster threshold.
