As Friday represents the precise six month mark since the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, on Thursday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invites Chris Murphy to offer his thoughts on the nation's progress to this point.
A Democratic senator from Connecticut, Murphy tells Piers Morgan that citing America's Founding Fathers, and the country's most respected documents, does not allow for carte blanche use of weaponry and ammunition:
"I'm committed to the Second Amendment too, but there is no constitutional scholar who tells you that the Second Amendment protects 100 round drums of ammunition, or dangerous assault weapons," suggested the man who succeeded four-term incumbent Joe Lieberman. "The Second Amendment has limitations just like the First Amendment does."
On the heels of recent revelations surrounding government data-mining programs, Morgan asked his guest about the hypocritical nature of those that support the NSA's various information gathering methods, while vocally objecting to gun control and background checks:
"There's hypocrisy all over this place, and so long as the NRA essentially strikes the fear into the hearts of lots of senators, it's going to continue."
Tune in this evening at 9 for more of Morgan's primetime interview with the Senator who represents that state that will forever be linked with one of the worst mass shootings in American history.
