Senate Preps For Second Amendment Showdowns

Senators Release Gun Bill Framework

Senators are currently working on a bipartisan gun bill.

Fox News reported earlier that the framework of the bill contains the following provisions:

“The proposal includes initiatives to support state crisis intervention orders; a national expansion of mental health services for children and families; expanding mental health programs in schools; enhanced review process for gun buyers under the age of 21; penalties for straw purchases; and additional funding for school resource officers.”

This bill is rumored to be much less radical than the one passed by the House last week, based on that framework.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) shared the following thread on Twitter over the weekend, stating that the group does not take a position on “frameworks” and will make their thoughts on the bill known when one is available.

Texas Senator John Cornyn is the lead Republican voice in the Senate deliberations, and he reportedly will nix anything in the bill that would not play well with his conservative Republican base back home in the Lone Star State.

As our team reported last week, 20 Senators have signed on to the framework. That group of 20 is split evenly between Democrats and Republicans, and contains the following members:

Chris Murphy (D-CT), John Cornyn (R-TX), (R-NC), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Cory Booker (D- NJ), Richard Burr (R-NC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), (R-ME), (D-DE), (R-SC), (D-NM), Mark Kelly (D-AZ), Angus King (I-ME), Joe Manchin (D-WV), (R-OH), Mitt Romney (R-UT), (D-MI), and (R-PA).

ATF Nominee Dettelbach Still Faces Final Senate Vote

Also pending is a Senate vote to confirm Steven Dettelbach to be the next director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF).

The confirmation of his nomination now seems to be imminent as Joe Manchin told CNN last week that he would vote to confirm Dettelbach to the role.

Even if no Republicans voted for Dettelbach, he could still be confirmed to the post by a tie-breaking vote cast by Vice President Kamala Harris.

A Dupe on Dobbs
Rumors were swirling around Twitter yesterday that the Supreme Court would issue a ruling on the Dobbs v Jackson WHO decision – which would overturn the 50-year precedent set by Roe v Wade in 1972. The timeline for the release of that ruling has since been pushed back to some time next month.

Since a leak of the alleged Dobbs decision earlier this year, conservative justices have faced threats from radical left-wing groups at their homes and places of worship. A man was arrested earlier this month after threatening to murder . All the while, has also had her church targeted.
