Sen. Murphy introduces bill prohibiting guns at polling sites
There is a push in Congress to keep polling locations safe on Election Day.
Sen. Chris Murphy introduced the Vote Without Fear Act.
If approved, firearms would not be allowed within 100 yards of any federal election site.
"Free and fair elections cannot happen occur in the face of armed intimidation at the polls, but that's become a disturbing reality for some Americans. This legislation will ensure voters and election workers continue to feel safe participating in the democratic process," said Murphy.
Currently only six states ban guns at polling locations.
