WNPR On NPR: Malloy Says More Guns Are Not The Answer

Here’s a short newscast spot that will air later today.  Listen to WNPR today during All Things Considered, and then from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., for comprehensive coverage of the governor’s state of the state address and the first day of the legislative session.

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy gave his state of the state address today. As Jeff Cohen from member station WNPR reports, lawmakers are considering gun control measures following the Newtown shootings last month.

Malloy fought tears as he spoke of school staffers who died, and of public safety workers who responded.

“Our brave Connecticut state troopers, Newtown’s local law enforcement and firemen, and others that responded courageously when called upon. Sorry.”

The governor said more guns won’t stop school gun violence.

“Freedom is not a handgun on the hip of every teacher. And security should not mean a guard posted outside every classroom.”

One proposed state law would ban magazine cartridges with more than 10 bullets.
