Within minutes of a devastating mass shooting in Broward County, Florida that shook the nation, liberal Senator Chris Murphy openly blamed the tragedy on Congressional “inaction,” despite having little to no information on the incident, the shooter, or any details surrounding the event.
“This happens nowhere else other than the United States of America, this epidemic of mass slaughter, the scourge of school shooting after school shooting,” said Murphy on the Senate floor.
“It only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a consequence of our inaction,” he added. “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 that this body doesn’t take seriously the safety of my children.”
Murphy’s blame-game comes mere moments after police took the suspect in custody near the local high school where the shooting took place.
Local authorities have yet to release official details, but confirm there are multiple people dead and many injured.
