Chris Murphy: U.S. Soul “Is Dying Inside” If School Shootings Are the Norm

Senator Chris Murphy appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where he discussed the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, leaving 19 children and two adults dead.

Murphy stated on the morning show that “something is dying inside the soul of this nation” when the country collectively permits the massacre of school children to become the norm.

“Something is dying inside the soul of this nation when we accept this as the new normal; when we just decide to become numb because it’s easier,” Murphy said.

“I want people in this country to feel a sense of outrage. That’s the reason I went to the floor yesterday as quickly as I did, because I don’t want people to fall into the sense of complacency.”

Like many parents after Tuesday’s events, Murphy had to talk to their children following the events of the latest school shooting.

“I know that they are sitting in school today talking with their friends about whether their school is next,” Murphy said.

“This is within our power to change. We are human beings with agency. This isn’t inevitable. None of it is. We are dying inside because too many Americans just throw up their hands and say it’s too hard, and the politics are too difficult. Not true.”
