"....opposition to an ANTI-gun control bill....". Huh? Now I'm confused. I would fully support an ANTI guncontrol bill. Not so much an anti-gun control bill. Who hires these writers? Are there no editors anymore? Maybe there's a reason no one is listed in writing/contributing to the piece. If (and I'm pretty sure he is) Stockman is defending us, great. As for cornyn and linda grahm cracker, they long ago gave up any credibility.

From the link you posted...

Cornyn announced the bill in an interview this month with traditionally liberal “Texas Monthly” magazine. According to Cornyn the “Graham-Cornyn Mental Health and Criminal Justice Reform Act” expands the National Instant Criminal Background Check (NICS) system to include Americans who have sought treatment for mental health issues. The bill seems to be nearly identical to an Executive Order issued last Friday by Obama.

“Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill is the Holy Grail of gun control,” said Stockman. “Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill is an aggressive expansion of the anti-gun agenda. Unable to ban guns they are now banning law-abiding gun owners, and Cornyn is leading the charge.”

Does this clear it up?

previously, there was no viable alternative to Cornyn; there are at leaast two now. Cornyn will not receive a majority vote in the primary and will lose in the runoff.

When Cornyn arrived in the Senate, he was an actual Conservative- FOR A WHILE.
