NRA encourages 'real solutions' to 'stop violence' after senators reach bipartisan gun framework agreement

“The NRA is committed to real solutions to help stop violence in our communities.  We encourage our elected officials to provide more resources to secure our schools, fix to our severely broken mental health system and support law enforcement,” the NRA said in a statement to Fox News Digital on Sunday. 

“As is our policy, the NRA does not take positions on ‘frameworks’.  We will make our position known when the full text of the bill is available for review,” the statement continued. 

A group of senators, including Republican Sen. John Cornyn and Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy, announced Sunday that they had come to an agreement on a “commonsense, bipartisan proposal to protect America’s children, keep our schools safe, and reduce the threat of violence across our country.”

“Our plan increases needed mental health resources, improves school safety and support for students, and helps ensure dangerous criminals and those who are adjudicated as mentally ill can’t purchase weapons. Most importantly, our plan saves lives while also protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans. We look forward to earning broad, bipartisan support and passing our commonsense proposal into law,” the senators said in a group statement.
