Sen. Dem: After Boston Bombing, 'Get Back To Work' On Gun Bill
Washington Examiner -- Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said that the families of Sandy Hook are grieving from a tragedy just as Bostonians are, as he called for Congress to focus on passing a gun bill.
“We’ve got to get back to work to make sure we can listen to the American people who still want us . . . to pass a background check,” Murphy said on MSNBC, per a rush transcription, after saying that there should be an “appropriate time” for grieving over the victims of the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
“Hopefully, we can get back to work [by the end of the week],” he said.
Blog author's comments - So apparently Murphy believes this is not the time to grieve about the Boston bombing victims...that should happen after a gun bill is passed? Meaning, forget the terrorism for now, let's just get back to seizing guns from Americans. Would he not grieve if one of his family or friends were involved?
So attacking the Second Amendment is more important than dead Americans. It sounds like he is upset and jealous that Massachusetts is usurping the public outpouring of sympathy that belongs to Connecticut. He doesn't want to lose the edge that the Newtown shooting "crisis" provided him and the rest of the gun grabbing liberals.
