Bipartisan Bill

Senator John Cornyn, the number two Republican in his chamber, has teamed up with one of the most outspoken Democrats on gun control for a bipartisan bill that seeks to improve the federal background check system after a breakdown allowed the Sutherland Springs church shooter to purchase firearms despite a criminal conviction, according to the Dallas Morning News. Cornyn and Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut introduced the Fix NICS Act, which will “penalize federal agencies that fail to report records and incentivize states to send criminal history records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System,” according to the Morning News.

Traffic Target

The woman with a “F–k Trump” sticker on the back window of her truck has been arrested after a post from Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls went viral. Karen Fonseca was arrested on Thursday on unrelated fraud charges and is out on bond, according to the Houston Chronicle. Nehls, meanwhile, has taken down his Facebook post. His office released this statement Thursdayafternoon: “The Sheriff made the post on his Personal page. The objective of the post was to find the owner/driver of the truck and have a conversation with them in order to prevent a potential altercation between the truck driver and those offended by the message. Since the owner of the truck has been identified, the Sheriff took down the post. Due to the hate messages he has been receiving towards his wife and children, the Sheriff will not be commenting on the matter further.”
