    Conn. Gov. Calls for Stricter Gun Control

    Three days after a shooting rampage at an elementary school left 26 dead, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy called for stricter gun control laws at a federal level. “Is there a law, policy, or procedure we could have had on the books that could have prevented this tragedy?” he asked. “I do.” He continued, “Do I think that Washington, D.C. needs to get its act together and enact stricter gun control laws at the federal level? You bet I do.” Molloy also announced that on Friday, Dec. 21 at 9:30 a.m. he will enact a moment of silence across the state, asking that places of worship ring 26 bells at that time, one for each victim. He asked other governors to join in the observance.
