Murphy: Prioritize High Capacity Magazine Ban

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) today released the following statement regarding details of gun safety legislation emerging this week:

I'm thrilled that the leadership in the Senate is committed to moving forward on a package of common sense gun safety legislation when the Congress reconvenes in April--families in Newtown and across the country deserve a robust debate on efforts to reduce gun violence. While the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 is an incredibly important part of this debate, I continue to believe that a more targeted ban on high capacity magazines is an equally effective way to reduce casualties in episodes of mass violence. I believe we need to have a separate floor vote on a high capacity magazine restriction, and I look forward to working with other senators in the coming weeks to develop a reasonable restriction on large volume magazines that can gain bipartisan support.
