Chris Murphy: We Need Gun Control, Even Though It Doesn’t Work

posted on September 4, 2015

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., is hard at work cementing his status as the clown prince of anti-gun politics. Whether he’s trying to get NASCAR to drop its NRA sponsorship or making the ludicrous claim that there has been one school shooting per week since Sandy Hook, Murphy is a reliable source of head-scratchers and outright howlers. His latest trick was to stump for gun control on CNN, but he hedged his bets when it came to the results that he anticipated.

Townhall features a good summary of Murphy’s interview, in which he made a quick run-through of typical anti-gun talking points. But when asked about his solution to stopping mass shootings, he backpedaled: “… I don’t think that we should expect that anything that we’re going to enact in Washington is going to stop shootings …”

For once we agree, Sen. Murphy!
