Sen. Murphy blasts NRA from Senate floor

Sen. Chris Murphy was on the Senate floor yesterday to call out the National Rifle Association for its response to gun violence prevention legislation.



Murphy says states like Connecticut that require background checks for permits to carry also have fewer gun-related deaths. 



The senator says the NRA's stance against some background checks is misleading.



Murphy says Democrats continue to push for universal background checks and what he calls common sense measures to prevent gun violence.
