HARTFORD, Conn. – Determined not only to maintain Connecticut’s status as home to some of the toughest gun laws in the nation but also to continue to promote gun safety, a new political action committee made its endorsements Thursday on the steps of the state Capitol.

CT Voters for Gun Safety endorsed all six constitutional officers, including Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman.

Ron Pinciaro, chairman of CT Voters for Gun Safety, said Malloy earned their endorsement for his “leadership and courage” and his calls for action –and willingness to act—after the Sandy Hook shootings that left 20 children and six educators dead.

    I wish the complete article included a link to where voters can see the list of 62 candidates endorsed. Great slogan: “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a vote”!

    What are the numbers for gun related crimes ore Malloy gun control and post Malloy gun control. I don’t know if it’s been a long enough sample but I’m curious to know. I believe he has simply hurt law abiding citizens and nothing else. A world where there is no need for guns is a wonderful dream but just a dream. The world is a dangerous place. And lets not forget that people speak about the second amendment it’s not the right to guns that’s important it’s the right to militia. Government by the people. It’s an important tool to our system of government and what it means to be an American.

    Former Wal Mart spokesperson Rep. Gail Lavielle was passed up. I wonder why?

    Why? Is Walmart now responsible for gun crime and violence?

    @EveT: I tweeted pictures of the full endorsement list right after Ron’s press conference. They should also be on my Facebook page, which I believe is available even if we’re not FB friends. Nancy could probably just pull the pictures from my Twitter feed and post them here. There were 5 Republicans endorsed overall; even some who had voted for the stronger gun law did not get endorsed. These endorsements were for those who went above and beyond.
