Senator At Assault Rifle Briefing

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy went to the State Police shooting range in Simsbury today, for a demonstration of semi-automatic rifles.

“There is nothing like seeing one of these weapons in use,” Murphy said.  “It is a very scary thing, to think about a .223 with that kind of firepower in the hands of someone like Adam Lanza in an elementary school.”

Murphy is pushing for a new federal ban on assault rifles.
