    Sen. Chris Murphy Tweets About ‘Assault Rifles’



    Despite rumors to the contrary, an AR-15 was not used in the Texas shooting. The killer used a shotgun and a .38 revolver to commit his crime – neither of which is an "assault rifle."

    There are several possible reasons Sen. Murphy composed this tweet. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt, and begin with sincere ignorance.

    Several recent mass shootings were perpetrated with semi-automatic rifles, and the rumor was going around on Friday that an AR-15 had been used. It’s certainly possible that Sen. Murphy was unaware of the actual weapons the shooter carried. He may have simply assumed that a semi-automatic rifle was used, and sent out the tweet in order to scold those who support the Second Amendment right of Americans to bear such arms.

    This scenario seems unlikely due to the fact that the tweet was sent out at 10:44 a.m. on Saturday, approximately 24 hours after the shooting occurred.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    to be fair, Murphy did not specifically call out The most recent shooting ... but given the timing the implication is there

    If he really does support the Second Amendment and not the imaginary Second Amendment then we're on the same page!

    That will mean he takes the "shall not be infringed" portion seriously and the unconstitutional NFA act and the 1968 GCA should go away along with all federal regulations. Whoooohooo!!!

    Maybe the Comptroller should pay Murphy in Make-Believe greenbacks to see how he likes that nation rather than ours.
    Saying we are a country of "Immigrants" is an insult to our ancestors.

    I don't want to change the conversation and of course Mr. Murphy is wrong there isn't 2 version of the 2nd. Amendment, the one he wishes existed and the one that does exist, but I have a question.
    Have the police yet figured out who sawed the barrel off the shotgun that was used.?
    My guess is the kid did it, to make the gun easier to conceal and enhances the lethality by spreading the shot.
