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.
The demonstration came following gun control hearings the state recently took on. The hearings were in response to the Newtown shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
