Sen. John Cornyn, who’s in the bipartisan group hammering out a gun deal, faced a tough crowd in his home state.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) was hit with a barrage of boos on Friday during an appearance at the Texas GOP Convention in Houston, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Cornyn, who has caught snags while negotiating a bipartisan gun deal in the wake of mass shootings, is helping lead the talks in Washington.
A number of the issues being debated include closing the “boyfriend loophole,” aimed at keeping guns from domestic abusers, and giving states incentives for passing “red flag” laws that would prevent anyone deemed a danger to themselves or others from owning weapons.
