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 Connecticut 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 and one that is currently legal.

Oh yeah the people can't have them but the government can. Hmmm I wonder why that is. Could someone explain?

It boggles my mind how out of touch he is. For one every time they fired the gun in the video there was no more than 18 rounds fired so how can he talk about 30 round magazines. Also the full auto version, the actual "assault rifle" can fire about 8 times as many rounds a minute. Also he must not understand that there is an assault weapons ban in CT already and lanza broke 20+ laws before he got to sandy hook so how are more laws going to help. they need to work on keeping the firearms out of the wrong hands, not the law abiding citizens.
