Sen. Cornyn Booed by Republican Delegates for Supporting Gun Control

Jun 17, 2022

Houston, TX — This afternoon, U.S. Senator John Cornyn faced Republican Party of Texas convention delegates for the first time since leading the Republican compromise for gun control “framework” in Washington, D.C.

Chants of “No Red Flags” could be heard throughout the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston as Cornyn took the stage.

National Association for Gun Rights and Texas Gun Rights activists passed out flyers to attendees, demanding the Senior Senator of Texas to “end his support of ‘Red Flag’ gun confiscation laws.”

Earlier this week, Cornyn laid out his desire to pass a national “Red Flag” grant program for states across the country while on the Senate Floor stating, “I believe that we ought to put every state in a position of seeking and receiving funds for crisis intervention programs that they have in place already, even if they don’t have a red flag law.”

Constant booing could be heard throughout the convention as the Senator addressed party delegates. A recording of the video can be found here.

“I think today should be a huge ‘red flag’ for Senator Cornyn that he must stop working with Chuck Schumer and Chris Murphy to pass Biden’s gun control,” said Dudley Brown, President of National Association for Gun Rights.

“Senator Cornyn has hid behind his ‘A’ rating from the NRA for far too long and National Association for Gun Rights members are holding him accountable,” said Chris McNutt of Texas Gun Rights, a state affiliate of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Lobbying from gun rights activists forced him to “walk” away from Senate gun control negotiations on Thursday, but he noted he was open to continued discussions.

The National Association for Gun Rights and Texas Gun Rights are urging their members to call Senator Cornyn and other Republican Senators to end all gun control talks, and instead focus on the repeal of dangerous “gun free” criminal safety zones.

The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
