McConnell faces pressure to bring Senate back for gun legislation
By Jordain Carney - 08/07/19 06:00 AM EDT

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is coming under intense pressure to take quick action on gun legislation in the wake of two mass shootings.

Democrats and gun control advocates want the GOP leader to bring the Senate back into session during the August recess to vote on gun-related legislation. The chamber is currently scheduled to be out of Washington until Sept. 9.

Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and GOP Rep. Peter King (N.Y.) on Tuesday cast McConnell as the primary roadblock to a House-passed gun background check bill making it to President Trump’s desk.

Mitch the bitch is comfortably resting at home while reviewing offers.

Meanwhile,Lady Lindsey seems to have recovered it's girlish self.

I am guessing a check bounced. I wouldn't be surprised to see it running as an opponent to Trump in the primaries.

I guess they're supposed to do this without the House in session, as everyone seems OK with Pelosi phoning it in.

She's been doing it for years anyway

If she is serious the House should be called back in session.  She could then pressure the Senate
by saying we are here where are you?

Big mistake to do anything right away, let things simmer down first.

As ever, that is the case.

Some of the all time worst Legislation is passed or considered as an "emergency" measure to "do something!" in the heat of the moment.

It is why the gun control stuff comes out before the shed blood cools in incidents like these, and why the push for Immediate Action!

I think he should continue to hide in his turtle house.  There is no urgency to force gun legislation.  First we should actually get the facts and stop the fake news.
BEIJING — The comment was made behind closed doors, and appeared to be in jest: President Trump told donors on Saturday that China’s president, Xi Jinping, was now “president for life,” and added: “I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll want to give that a shot someday.”

“When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it,” Trump told Playboy in a 1990 interview. “Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength.”
