Dem Sen Murphy: If Gun Controls Not Passed ‘There Aren’t Going to Be as Many Republicans Around Come 2019’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said if President Donald Trump and the Republicans in Congress do not pass gun control after the Parkland, FL shooting, “there aren’t going to be as many Republicans around for him come 2019.”

Murphy said, “I think he knows that the mood of the country has shifted such that he and his party are going to pay a huge price at the polls in 2018 and 2020 if they don’t start supporting things like universal background checks.”

He added, “If he and Republicans don’t start showing some moving in the wake of Parkland, there aren’t going to be as many Republicans around for him come 2019.”
