CT senator on Florida shooting: 'This happens nowhere else other than US'
Sen. Chris Murphy took the floor with a rebuke of fellow members of congress as debates continue over gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Florida that left 17 people dead.
"Let me just note once again for my colleagues: this happens nowhere else other than the United States of America,” says Murphy. “This epidemic of mass slaughter, this scourge of school shooting after school shooting. It only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a consequence of our inaction. We are responsible".
Sen. Murphy has been an outspoken supporter of gun control legislation for years.
