Why McConnell Backed a Gun Bill This Time


For the first time publicly, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) explained why he backed the bipartisan gun bill, Politico reports.

Said McConnell: “We’ve lost ground in suburban areas. We pretty much own rural and small-town America. And I think this is a sensible solution to the problem before us, which is school safety and mental health. I hope it will be viewed favorably by voters in the suburbs that we need to regain in order to hopefully be in the majority next year.”

It’s the same rationale I gave earlier this month. It’s just politics.
