Lawmakers’ failure on gun reform legislation

ICYMI: Watch this Morning Joe conversation with Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle about why lawmakers will not take action on gun reform legislation even after the latest U.S. school mass shooting during which an 18-year-old gunman wielding an AR-15 fatally shot 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. “We have an issue involving a specific weapon, an assault rifle. It's killing children. It's killing grandmothers. It’s extraordinarily easy to use. It's even easier to purchase. It’s a danger to democracy. It’s a danger to your family, to your children, and your grandchildren. But, we have a way to stop it. We have a way to slow down the murders of children, and here's how we do it: We establish, again, a ban on the sale of assault weapons. We establish, again, universal pre-checks, so they can't purchase weapons, and your elected officials, knowing this, seeing the evidence, seeing their own futures politically perhaps at stake, they rise up in a majority and they say, ‘no, no, we won't do it.’ That's where we are. You can feel the nuts and bolts of our democracy popping loose when they vote to continue insanity,” says Barnicle about the inaction from lawmakers on gun control. Join the conversation here.
