Jackass of the day.
Via The Hill:
… Two years after losing their fight to expand background checks following the mass shooting at a school in Newtown, Conn., the group of lawmakers insisted that their fight was not over.
Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D-Conn), who represents Newtown, said the number of co-sponsors for the bill has doubled in the last year.
“The support is growing,” she said. “The momentum has not stopped.”
Esty joined Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) as well as Connecticut’s Democratic Senate duo, Murphy and Sen. Richard Blumenthal, to announce the legislation.
Murphy stressed that he has not met “a single hunter or a single person who hunts for sport” who needs more than 10 rounds.
He said those who wanted high-capacity magazines were more interested in “arming against the government.”
