Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has expressed his desire for a solution that is acceptable to both parties.
Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, was encouraged by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Democrat from Kentucky, to initiate conversations with Democratic senators about gun laws to determine whether or not the two political parties have any points of agreement.
McConnell pushed Cornyn to speak with Senators Chris Murphy of Connecticut and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona to see if he can find common ground with them on gun control after a school shooting on Tuesday in which 19 children and two teachers were killed inside an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. The shooting took place on Tuesday.
A representative for Senator Cornyn has verified that he had a conversation with Senator McConnell.
In an interview that took place on Thursday with authorities, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed his optimism by saying, “I’m hopeful.”
