Gun Control Law #MoscowMitch still refuses to allow in the Senate

Here are the gun control bills that the Republican-controlled Senate has not taken up under McConnell:

Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 (H.R. 8)

The first major gun control bill that the House passed in over two decades, H.R. 8 would require universal background checks and close the loopholes for buyers at gun shows and private sellers online. It passed in February 240-190 in a mostly party-line vote, with eight Republicans joining almost every Democrat to vote for the bill…

Enhanced Background Checks Act (H.R. 112)

This bill would extend the current background check review period from three days to ten. It’s being sponsored by Rep. Jim Clyburn, a South Carolina Democrat who also serves as the House Majority Whip. The bill also passed 240-190.

Read ’em and weep for the survivors, their families…the victims of Republicans stopping any vote on useful gun regulation.

    How Moscow Mitch Won a New Russian Plant in His Home State https://www.dcreport.org/2019/08/17/how-moscow-mitch-won-a-new-russian-plant-in-his-home-state/
    Critics of a Kremlin-linked industrial giant investing $200 million in a new aluminum plant in Kentucky gives Moscow political influence that could undermine national security. Pointing to Moscow’s use of economic leverage to sway European politics, they warn the deal is a stalking horse for a new kind of Russian meddling in America, one that exploits the U.S. free-market system instead of its elections. What worries national-security experts is not that any of the businessmen who put the deal together broke any laws. It’s that they didn’t.
    A Time magazine investigation found that the Russian aluminum company, Rusal, used a broad array of political and economic tools to fight sanctions the U.S. had placed on Russian businesses, establishing a foothold in U.S. politics in the process. To free itself from sanctions, Rusal fielded a team of high-paid lobbyists for an intense, months-long effort in Washington. One of the targets was Kentucky’s own Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, who helped thwart a bipartisan push to keep the sanctions in place. Ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, one of Rusal’s longtime major shareholders contributed more than $1 million through his companies to a GOP campaign fund tied to McConnell. https://time.com/5651345/rusal-investment-braidy-kentucky/
