Republican senators stood united Wednesday in response to the shooting massacre at a Texas elementary school that left 19 children and two teachers dead, making it clear that they have a plan for what they can ― and must ― do in response to these largely preventable and routine mass shootings happening all over the country, all the time.

See below for specifics on the GOP senators’ strategy, which they unveiled on social media with great fanfare for the American public.
It’s unclear what metrics they plan to use to gauge the success of their proposal. What is clear, though, is that Senate Republicans have already signaled that they won’t even vote for a House-passed bill to strengthen gun background checks, something that has near-universal support among Americans.
