Sen. Chris Murphy — without fail, one of the first and loudest voices calling for gun control whenever there’s a shooting — has another hot take on the Las Vegas shooting Sunday, following up on his claim Monday that “one of government’s core functions is to regulate evil.”

Got it. So the madman out there planning the next Las Vegas-style mass shooting is closely monitoring C-SPAN to see if Congress is working on “common sense” gun control provisions to see if he’ll carry out his plan or not. If legislators would just hurry up and pass a bunch of gun control laws, murderous psychopaths would realize the error of their ways, thanks to the model set by Chris Murphy and his colleagues.
