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 Conn. 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.

Chris said to the sargent " Do I fire the gun with this finger and did I break it in half?"

Start at 56 seconds and listen to what Murphy says about banned guns and legal guns and how the system was manipulated. Yikes.
