Connecticut Democratic Senator Chris Murphy gave an impassioned response after another deadly mass shooting took place Sunday. At least 26 parishioners died and 20 more continue to fight to survive injuries sustained when a gunman opened fire during services at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
The senator, who represents the community where the deadly Sandy Hook school shooting occurred, is a vocal advocate for gun control. Murphy reacted to the feelings of helplessness that Americans experience after news of these mass shootings.
“The paralysis you feel right now ― the impotent helplessness that washes over you as news of another mass slaughter scrolls across the television screen ― isn’t real,” Murphy stated. “It’s a fiction created and methodically cultivated by the gun lobby.”
None of this is inevitable … It is uniquely and tragically American.”
