Senator Chris Murphy appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where he discussed the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, leaving 19 children and two adults dead.

Murphy stated on the morning show that “something is dying inside the soul of this nation” when the country collectively permits the massacre of school children to become the norm.

“Something is dying inside the soul of this nation when we accept this as the new normal; when we just decide to become numb because it’s easier,” Murphy said.

“I want people in this country to feel a sense of outrage. That’s the reason I went to the floor yesterday as quickly as I did, because I don’t want people to fall into the sense of complacency.”

Like many parents after Tuesday’s events, Murphy had to talk to their children following the events of the latest school shooting.

“I know that they are sitting in school today talking with their friends about whether their school is next,” Murphy said.

“This is within our power to change. We are human beings with agency. This isn’t inevitable. None of it is. We are dying inside because too many Americans just throw up their hands and say it’s too hard, and the politics are too difficult. Not true.”

Jeanine Pirro Wants a “Hardening Perimeter” for Each School

Pirro voiced support for “hardening the perimeter” of each school in the country and stationing security guards at them.

The latest mass shooting occurred at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, where a gunman killed 18 students and three adults. Much like in the Sandy Hook and Parkland shootings, many are voicing their opinions about how the country can avoid these incidents.

During a segment on “The Five,” co-host Jeanine Pirro voiced support for “hardening the perimeter” of each school in the country and stationing security guards at them.

“I mean, these children are–they’re babies,” Pirro said, per Mediaite. “They really are babies.”

Pirro suggested that many retired law enforcement officers would be willing to contribute their time to supply security at schools across the United States. 

“I think that you’ve got a lot of people now – retired cops, retired sheriffs – who’d be more than happy to protect kids. I think right now – and I don’t want to get into the politics of it – but we’ve got to make sure that people understand, especially the schools and the teachers, that we need this,” Pirro said. 

“It is a crazy world today. It’s very different than it was five years ago. But we need to do something about it I think this is one of the only ways to actually protect the school and the children.”
