Cornyn Defends Gun Rights Record

By Bill O'Neil

The Number Two Republican in the U.S. Senate is under fire from at least one GOP Primary opponent--who questions his commitment to gun rights. 

The issue has been raised by Congressman Steve Stockman--centering around a bill the Senator is working on when it comes to the mentally ill being able to access firearms.  

"I think common sense should tell all of us that guns in the hands of the mentally ill is not a good thing" the Senator said, pointing to a common thread of mental illness among the shooters in many recent high profile mass shooting incidents.  

Stockman calls the plan--which Cornyn is working on with fellow Republican SAenator Lindsay Graham--"Cornyn's Bloomberg Bill." However, the Senator said no threshshold decisions have been made.  

"We haven't resolved that yet--and that's why we haven;'t filed the bill yet" Cornyn said.
