WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Thursday released the following statement after President Biden’s address to the nation:

“President Biden is right – doing nothing is not an option. Over the last week, I have been in almost constant communication with my colleagues to find common ground on a meaningful, bipartisan package that will save lives. Momentum is building, and we’re going to keep at it to make sure we meet this moment and deliver for the overwhelming majority of Americans demanding change.” said Murphy.

Murphy on Thursday authored an op-ed on FoxNews.com to lay out the state of bipartisan negotiations on gun reform.
