Dan Malloy on Gun Control

 

 


NRA has developed into a terrorist organization

Governor Malloy said the NRA has developed into a "terrorist organization."

"They act quite frankly in some cases as a terrorist organization," said Malloy. "You want to make safer guns? We will boycott your company. That's who they are. That's what they do."

Malloy said the NRA is a different organization than what it used to be. "The NRA today is a far cry from the NRA that in 1999 said that teachers shouldn't carry weapons in schools," said Malloy. "Or in the 90's said we should have universal background checks. They have in essence become a terrorist organization."

The NRA released the following statement in regards to Gov. Malloy's terrorist remarks: "The NRA is comprised of over five million law-abiding citizens. So let's be clear Governor Malloy just called tens of thousands of his constituents terrorists. NRA members love our children and want them to be safe just as much as anyone else; we just disagree that punishing law-abiding citizens is the way to achieve that goal."

Close loopholes; ban bump stocks

Surely, regardless of where each of us stands on the second amendment, we can all agree that no innocent person should know the terror of gunfire raining down on them at a rate of 90 bullets every ten seconds. Together, let us do what Congress could not do. Let's close dangerous loopholes and ban bump stocks in the State of Connecticut.

Allow early voting, explore vote by mail

Together this session, we can pass a constitutional amendment that would allow all Connecticut residents to vote early for any reason. And on this topic, let us not waste a moment in our effort to make voting easier and more accessible. I will issue an executive order directing my administration to explore and report on the feasibility and benefits of creating a 'vote by mail' system in Connecticut.

More guns are not the answer to gun violence

More guns are not the answer to gun violence When it comes to preventing future acts of violence in our schools, let me say this: more guns are not the answer. Freedom is not a handgun on the hip of every teacher, and security should not mean a guard posted outside every classroom.

More guns are not the answer to gun violence As long as weapons continue to travel up and down I-95, what is available for sale in Florida or Virginia can have devastating consequences here in Connecticut.

Reduce illegal gun activity by removing illegal guns

Removing Illegal Guns: Too often news reports lead with a story reminding us of threat of gun violence. As I did in Stamford, I will work collaboratively with local leaders and police forces to develop creative solutions for reducing illegal gun activity and the threat it poses. I will also seek to enhance the state's gun trafficking task force and partner with the federal government to trace guns seized in a crime.
