. Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘We’re Closer Than Ever Before’ On Bipartisan Gun Legislation « JO LEE MAGAZINE

Huff Post- “We are talking about a meaningful change in our gun laws, a major investment in mental health, perhaps some money for school security that would make a difference. On the table is red flag laws, changes to our background check system to improve the existing system, a handful of other items that will make a difference,” he said.

Murphy on Friday told CNN that there are a lot of “outstanding” issues that still needed to be hammered out, including whether to raise the minimum age to purchase a semi-automatic rifle to 21.

“I don’t know yet whether there’s enough support to get to 60 votes on that,” Murphy said of raising the purchasing age. “There’s a lot of outstanding questions that we’ll have to answer next week.”
