In a Senate Judiciary Committee markup, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, today voted against legislation introduced by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, that would ban assault weapons:

"This is a flawed piece of legislation that jeopardizes the self-defense and constitutional rights of law-abiding Texans, while doing nothing to address the tragic problem of gun violence. It is unacceptable to me, and it is unacceptable to Texans.

"To truly address gun violence, and do so with broad bipartisan support, we should be addressing the serious deficiencies in our mental health system, improving our background check database, and rigorously enforcing existing laws."
