Sen. Chris Murphy: Gun Control Discussions with the GOP ‘that Might Bear Fruit’

‘And the fact is none of that would’ve happening if we didn’t stand up and conduct that filibuster’

EXCERPT:

MURPHY: "Well, first of all, does the FBI have the resources? I mean that’s a question, to take those notifications, especially if the individual walks out of the store with the gun, and stop the killing before it happens? It would be much more effective to make sure that the individual doesn’t get the gun rather than to make the FBI go find him after he gets it. I think there is consensus here. And so, as we speak, there are discussions happening, in addition to these votes that we’re having —"
KARL: "Really, with the Republicans?"
MURPHY: "— yes, that might bear fruit. And the fact is none of that would’ve happening if we didn’t stand up and conduct that filibuster. We were just going to go on, like business as usual. And so we’re going to try to get the votes on Monday night. If we don’t, there are compromise negotiations happening. I don’t think any of that would’ve occurred if we hadn’t taken a stand."
