GOA Organization: ‘Senator John Cornyn’s Support for Gun Control Makes Him Unfit for GOP Leadership’

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, declared his candidacy for Senate Leader. Gun Owners of America promptly launched an attack against him, highlighting his backing of several gun control measures throughout his years in office.

During the summer of 2022, President Biden singled out Senator Cornyn for gratitude regarding the approval of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, a gun control package that Cornyn worked with Democrats to develop.

On Friday, June 17, 2022, Cornyn was booed at a Republican Party convention for collaborating with Democrats to impose additional gun control measures on law-abiding citizens.


Aidan Johnston, the director of federal affairs at GOA, reacted to Cornyn’s current bid for leadership through a post on X, stating in part:

“Americans deserve someone who will refuse to compromise with their God-given Second Amendment rights. And unfortunately, John Cornyn is always, always, always cutting deals with our Second Amendment.”
