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 of Conn. and one that is currently legal.

easY there rambo! don't go all ballistic on us, we need your zeal to empower the few remaining legislators to reign in ANY legislator that thrives on mass murder hysteria. these legislators are so far removed from the 'street' they 'git skeered' when they hear a loud noise, let alone experience a lead object whizz past their well manicured hairdo. they all (wimmin included) should have arms training, or some military exposure to defending the country, not only with words but with some hands on time somewhere other than the 'battle ground' of the senate floor.

make sure you don't infringe on free speech, even in the comments, totalitarianism smacks of surveillance.

This Senator is by far the dumbest individual around. He uses the term "Madmen" Does he actually think a law will keep anything from a "Madman"? He is also surprised atr the "Lethality" of these semi-auto rifles, Really? All guns are deadly you gigantic moron. Guns are only lethal when a bad person or criminal uses them against law abiding people. The mentally disjointed person in Columbine had 10, 10 shot magazines for 1 pistol and fired it 96 times, Just because this Senator won the election, he still has to represent me and the the people that own these firearms. We are not commiting crimes you jughead.

It appears that he still doesn't know the difference between semi-auto and full-auto or which is legal. Please senator, get it right and don't go crazy against all honest law-abiding gun owners! We vote too and will go crazy next election!

What really bothers me is that the liberal gun haters in congress have no plans to stop here...this is their chance to "control" law abiding conservative minded folks by instilling fear and misinformation in the minds of so many unknowing people. I don't fear people with guns, I fear politicians and their puppet media with agendas!
