WASHINGTON (WTNH) — Governor Malloy spoke in Washington D.C. today, calling for other states to follow Connecticut’s lead when it comes to gun control.
Malloy was one of the speakers at a three day national summit held by the Brady Campaign and the American Public Health Association. The focus was to talk about the risks of guns in homes, keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people, and gun laws.
Malloy says we have a long way to go to prevent shootings at schools and other public places.
“These things are going to continue to happen. Every state, every community is going to eventually, be impacted by one of these shootings, on mass destruction,” said Malloy.
The Brady Campaign is pushing for stronger background checks at the state and federal levels.
