Van Hollen Blasts McConnell Over Senate Inaction On Gun Bill

September 5th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Maryland, lambasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Wednesday for inaction on gun control legislation, saying it would be “grossly irresponsible” for the Kentucky Republican to not bring up legislation for a Senate vote. “It’s irresponsible for (McConnell) to hand authority over to the executive branch,” Van Hollen said in an interview with Capital News Service. “We’re a co-equal branch of government, and should not be contracting out our responsibilities.” Van Hollen’s remarks came one day after McConnell said he would not bring gun safety measures to the floor of the Senate without the support of President Donald Trump.
