“It would be stupid for us not to have this conversation,” said Gov. Dannel Malloy in from the State Capitol in Hartford Thursday afternoon.
Malloy announced that he is setting up a Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, which will be led by Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson.
“This issue touches me, I have a son whose in the first grade,” said Jackson. “Right now, it’s the most important thing for me to do.”
The 15-member commission will review school safety, gun control laws and regulations and mental health issues.
“We will work together to make the state model one for the rest of the nation,” Malloy said. “We can’t work on this issue by ourselves here in Connecticut. Still, far too easy to buy guns and in some states and transport to our state. We need Washington to get its act together.”
