McKinley Statement on House Democrats' "Sit-In"


Date: June 23, 2016

"We all agree that terrorists should not be able to purchase guns but we can't jeopardize people's Constitutional rights or threaten due process. Remember, the four proposals the Democrats want to vote on already failed in the Senate and a similar amendment was defeated in a House committee in a bipartisan manner," said McKinley.

"Therefore the actions taken by the liberal, Pelosi-led Democrats look more suspiciously like a publicity stunt and an effort to raise campaign funds and not an attempt to solve any problem. Rather than focusing on common sense reforms to address surrounding issues -- including terrorism and mental health -- they are instead exploiting a tragedy to score cheap political points. It's time to end the political charades and get back to developing real solutions," McKinley said.
