President Trump is inviting Connecticut Democrat Senator Chris Murphy to a meeting on gun legislation at the White House.
The Trump administration reached out to Murphy, who is a prominent gun safety advocate.
The president has also tapped other lawmakers to join the discussion this week.
While Murphy has pushed for tougher regulation, the senator said he is ready to hear what the White House has to say.
“Once you’re in the position of hoping a school security officer or a gym teacher decides to take pistol to somebody with a military style assault weapon, public policy has failed,” said Murphy. You should be passing laws to stop that kind of horrific incident from happening in the first place.”
Senator Murphy was elected to the Senate a month before the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting in his home state of Connecticut.
