In recent weeks, Congressional members in both the U.S. House and Senate have made public statements and resolutions calling for increased gun control laws. This comes after a year of several hard defeats for such measures in Washington and waning public support for more.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) were in attendance of the joint release of the Moms Demand Action and Mayors Against Illegal Guns study on school shootings since Newtown Wednesday.

At the event, McCarthy told reporters, “We don’t have to choose between protecting the Second Amendment and installing some sensible safety measures that keep guns out of the wrong hands.”

Murphy said in part, “We can do more to prevent these tragedies and it’s time for Congress to wake up and do the right thing.”

This event came just days after Murphy and fellow Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal spoke out against gun violence in their home state.
