Murphy: Speed, Capacity of Semi-Automatic Weapons 'Unbelievable' [Video]

Sen. Chris Murphy watches a state police demonstration of the power of military-style assault rifles in Simsbury.

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D—Conn.) paid a visit to the Conn. State Police Gun Range in Simsbury Friday for a demonstration on military-style assault rifles.

State police Sergeant Shawn Corey demonstrated the differences between two military-style assault rifles for Murphy as he asked questions specifically about two versions of a similar weapon—one that is banned in the state of Conn. and one that is currently legal.

Another uneducated elected official. Can't wait until politicians devote this much time to fixing our debt. I wonder if the gun laws currently on the books would lower crime. We will never know until they start to enforce them. Murphy can add 100 more laws it will do nothing.

Of course he couldn't just go there without informing the media. Just another photo-op for political gain.

Maybe he should talk to Sen. Cruz of TX for some info. See this video for clarification on the proposed assault gun ban. http://youtu.be/Wi6gZU01yF8
