Chris Murphy: Trump Made America Less Safe By Signing Bill Allowing Mentally Ill To Get Guns
MURPHY: "Again, it is to the point of the president saying one thing that is a repetition of his campaign speeches and either doing nothing or doing the opposite, right? How can you come before the United States Congress and talk about your concern for the murders that are happening in our cities, for the incident that happened in Kansas City, and then sign an act into law that allows for people with serious mental illness to get dangerous assault weapons, right? At some point your concern for the rise in gun violence that’s been happening across the country has to equate into action. He is doing the exact opposite, right? He made the country less safe today by signing an NRA endorsed piece of legislation into law that will allow for potentially thousands of people with serious mental illness to be able to buy weapons. He did it why? Because the NRA expected something from him because they supported him in the election, and it is going to make the country less safe. It just speaks to this discontinuity between everything he is saying and then what is actually happening inside the white House."
