Sen. Chris Murphy’s latest gun control tweet was inspired by an NBC News report on gun homicides, but followers didn’t take from the piece the same thing that he did — that more guns are making us less safe.

NBC News reports that “the CDC found a 31 percent increase in homicides involving firearms from 2014 to 2016” — so maybe look up Barack Obama and ask him about those numbers.

Just one thing …

What was it Mayor Rahm Emmanuel said about the more than 60 shootings in Chicago over the weekend? “You can talk about the weather, but the weather didn’t pull the trigger. You can talk about jobs, and they count, but in parts of the city where there aren’t jobs, people did not pull the trigger.” People did not pull the trigger? Wha?
