The No. 2 Republican in the Senate, Texas Senator John Cornyn, said on Tuesday that he will introduce a background check bill for gun purchases. This is in response to the mass shooting at the Sutherland Springs
Baptist church in Texas , where Devin Patrick Kelley killed 26 people, half of them children, on Sunday. The proposed legislation will require all federal agencies to upload criminal records to a national database, that must be checked before a person can purchase a gun.
