Joe Scarborough: Mitch McConnell Tried Everything He Can to Protect Our Children from Gun Violence
SCARBOROUGH: "Willie, the pressure is rising on the President not just from Democrats, of course, and the House, but from 90%, 94% of Americans on background checks, from a majority of Americans and even Republicans on military-style weapons that continue — the AR-15 continue showing up in one mass killing after another and has for over a decade. And breaking this morning, the leaders of 145 companies, 'The New York Times' reports, have all signed a letter and sent it to the Senate demanding action on gun safety legislation. So — so Mitch McConnell, who has done everything he could to block America from protecting itself against foreign enemies, trying to interfere with American democracy from Russia, now he’s being accused, rightly, of doing the same thing and protecting our children in schools, protecting our parishioners in church, protecting people that go to country music concerts. The chorus is getting louder every day."
