The number of U.S. students killed in school shootings so far this year is greater than the number of U.S. military personnel who have been killed in combat operations.We must take the fight for sensible gun control that protects our children and our community to the state level. If Republicans stand in the way of protecting us as a nation, we must act here in Connecticut. I say that we must go further by banning assault weapons and ghost guns (sold in parts without serial numbers). We should also raise the minimum age to own a gun, and require stricter universal background checks.Our children need leaders who will fight to end gun violence.
To ensure that the sale of firearms be in adherence with requirements that firearms be marked with serial numbers and to close loopholes contributing to the illegal possession of firearms.
