Transcript for School shootings a 'consequence of our inaction,' Sen. Chris Murphy says
As we speak there is a horrific scene playing out at a high school in South Florida. Turn on your television right now you're going to see scenes of children. Running for their lives. What looks to be the nineteenth. School shooting in this country and we have not. Even hit march. I'm coming to the floor to talk about something else but let me just note once again for my colleagues. This happens nowhere else other than the United States of America. This epidemic of mass slaughter. This scorch. A school shooting after school shooting. It only happens here not because of quince events. Not because of bad luck. But as a consequence of our inaction. We are responsible. For a level. Of mass atrocity. That happens in this country with zero parallel. Anywhere else. As a parent it scares me to death. His body doesn't take seriously the safety of my children. It seems like a lot of parents in South Florida re asking that same question later today we pray. For the families. For the victims. We hope for the best.
