Trenton art show shooting: Gun laws won’t change anything (OPINION)
That didn't take long.
Just hours had gone by after gunfire erupted at a Trenton art show, leaving more than 20 people injured, most of them by the gunfire itself. Little was understood about what had happened — who'd done the shooting, what prompted it, who if anyone was hurt in crossfire with police. Only a little more is known even now.

In a message posted to his Twitter account, Murphy said "these are not inappropriate times to talk about gun policy. These are the most important times to talk about gun policy."
