Never letting a tragedy go to waste ,Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) jumped on CNN following the shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival to tell people that because of their “radical view of the Second Amendment” Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch will allow criminals "to obtain any kind of weapon that they want." 

Murphy gave his reasoning for this scare tactic that aired on CNN’s Newsroom Tuesday.

“One of the reasons that I voted against Brett Kavanaugh. His nomination to the Supreme Court is that he very likely holds an absolutely radical view of the Second Amendment,” Murphy said. “And we can get into a long discussion about what the Second Amendment is really about. But there's no doubt in my mind that even if it does allow for the private right of gun ownership, it allows for Congress to regulate that right.”

“But Kavanaugh and Gorsuch and perhaps others - may interpret the Second Amendment moving forward as to allow zero regulation or restriction from Congress or state legislatures, allowing private citizens, even criminals, to obtain any kind of weapon that they want,” Murphy added.
