Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Rabid gun banner Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) described as “mythology” the claim that good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns.

“This mythology that you end up killing bad guys by arming good guys just doesn’t work,” Murphy said on CNN. “Reality is that if you have a gun at home, you are more likely to be killed by it than to kill an attacker or someone that’s going after your neighbor.”

Murphy then suggested the Sydney hostage incident reminds us that we have to a “conversation here in this country” about the legality of “assault weapons,” which he claims are “more likely than not” to be used “in…mass slaughters rather than used by some citizen to stop someone in one of those situations.” [even though statistics prove the opposite]

Then he falsely claimed we’re having “one school shooting a week in the United States” and that that should be enough to persuade us to discuss more gun control directed toward “assault weapons.”  

On December 9 Everytown for Gun Safety released a study claming “100 school shootings” in the US since Newtown. On December 13 I reported that list included non-school, non-existent, and accidental shootings.

If this guy had half a brain he would know that he is so wrong. If he was right there would be blood in the streets of every town in USA and bodies piled so high, given the number of lawfully owned firearms in households. Perhaps he should read Armed Citizen each week. “This mythology that you end up killing bad guys by arming good guys just doesn’t work,” Murphy said on CNN. “Reality is that if you have a gun at home, you are more likely to be killed by it than to kill an attacker or someone that’s… Read more »

The senator is a moron. His “facts” are ALL demonstrably FALSE.
As Ronald Reagan said, “It’s not what liberals don’t know, it’s whay they ‘know’ that ain’t so.”

No doubt that Murphy is surrounded by good guys with guns while in Washington. The first thing that went through my mind, while these innocent folks were still being held at gunpoint, was that they were all left defenseless by the great australian gun grab. So what can they do??!!!!! Why, wait for good guys with guns to show up and attempt a rescue. That didn’t work out too well for two of them. This reminds me of the story of Andrea Rebello, a beautiful young coed who was living with friends, and her twin sister, on Long Island. Their… Read more »

Sen Murphy of Ct. he should ask himself. The news stated after the shooting in the Conn school. The news reported that all the schools in Conn have armed guards in schools from middle schools and up. Where was the armed guard in this school?

In response to Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) claiming it’s a myth Good guys with guns stop bad guys . I have stopped a peeping tom I confronted him with an Uzi , Stopped a car theft with an AR15 , just by loading it , he ran. Confronted a trespasser with my handgun. Chris Murphy needs to STFU , quit being a senator since he believes in treason trimming the Constitutional rights of Americans. Since he represents CT we should BAN all government sales(EVERYTHING) to CT including Police departments , since they are taking part in the Unconstitutional movement of… Read more »

The real myth is that more gun control laws will prevent violent crimes like this.

Mossberg should complete its move out of this State as should any Company involved in the manufacture of anything to do with hunting or shooting. When you are not wanted and talked about like you are trash then you need to use common sense and move.
