The Hill reported:
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) was booed while delivering remarks during a Texas GOP convention in Houston, Texas, on Friday.
Boos from a crowd of people listening to his remarks could be heard from several videos posted on Twitter.
Cornyn has an A-plus rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and is the top Republican negotiator in a group of bipartisan lawmakers working on a deal on gun legislation.
News outlet KHOU noted that he received boos at different points in his remarks. In particular, the boos came when he spoke about measures that could be included in the group’s final bill.
“More mental health resources more support for our schools and making sure that violent criminals and the mentally ill cannot buy a firearm,” Cornyn said about what could included in the bill, according to CNN.
Red flag laws do NOT prevent crime.
They take away guns from legal gun owners.
