Conn. Senator Blames Video Games for Influencing Sandy Hook Shooter

Sen. Christopher Murphy (D-Conn.) gave a speech (which you can watch for yourself to your left) during Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D- CA) press conference introducing a new bill that would ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines. Murphy said that if Feinstein's bill had been law many of the children that died during the December 14 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut might still be alive. Senator Murphy also blamed video games for their part in influencing the shooter, though proof that video games had anything to do with influencing him has yet to be produced.

"I think there’s a question as to whether he would have driven in his mother’s car in the first place if he didn’t have access to a weapon that he saw in video games that gave him a false sense of courage about what he could do that day."

Murphy is referring to dubious reports that the shooter played Call of Duty. Other reports indicated that he was a big Dynasty Warriors fan too.

Chris Murphy took the oath of office on in early to become Connecticut's newest U.S. senator, replacing the retiring Joe Lieberman (I-Conn).
