In an afternoon appearance on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Sen. Chris Murphy said that Congress is “complicit” in mass murders for its inability and unwillingness to pass gun control measures.

“You know, as the father of a little kindergartner, I think about what those drills do to kids,” Murphy said. “Even if they never experience a shooting first hand, the fact that they go to school everyday living in fear of a madman walking through their door and opening fire.”

“That is psychologically harmful in a way that’s hard to calculate, and so this is a problem we have to take on.”

“Everyday the Congress does nothing we are essentially complicit in these murders.” Murphy said, laying the blame at the feet of his colleagues. “We offer a kind of endorsement by our inaction.”

“Hopefully we’ll be able to move the ball forward on this in the next Congress.”
