Several Republicans change their minds to ban assault rifles
For decades, after mass shootings, the right has been saying nothing needs to be done about gun control and most maintain that position even after last week’s tragedy in Uvalde, Texas. However, there are now a few Republican politicians saying something needs to be done about gun safety regulations. An example is Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who went on CNN and said, “I opposed a ban fairly recently. I think I’m open to a ban now. Kinzinger has become an anti-Trump Republican and is leaving office at the end of his term, but at least someone is speaking up. Another example is Congressman Chris Jacobs, who said his views on gun control changed following the mass shooting in Buffalo, New York. The NRA-endorsed Republican said he would vote for a bill banning assault weapons and raising the age requirement for certain gun purchases to 21. These two reversals don’t necessarily mean the dam of Republican politics is breaking, but at least it’s a start.
