Gun-Control Sen. Chris Murphy Falls Into His Own Trap

posted on June 22, 2016

In an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., attempted to explain why he was pushing gun-control proposals that would have no effect on stopping mass shootings.

Karl was relentless in his questioning: “Your proposal would have done nothing in the case of Orlando, it would have done nothing to stop the killing in San Bernardino. And in fact, it was unrelated to the killing in Newtown. So why are we focusing on things that have nothing to do with the massacres we’re responding to?”

Cornered, Murphy deflected: “We can’t get into that trap. I disagree, I think if this proposal had been into effect it may have stopped the shooting. But we can’t get into the trap in which we are forced to defend our proposal simply because it didn’t stop the last tragedy.”

By promoting gun-control proposals that wouldn’t stop any mass shootings, the only trap Murphy is avoiding is one he laid himself.
