Steps are finally being taken to protect our children from gun violence!
It's been nearly four months since Adam Lanza murdered 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School — today Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy signed a bill aimed at preventing similar tragedies.
The law bans the sale of over 100 different guns and also magazines, such as the ones Adam used, that hold more than ten rounds.
Connecticut House majority leader Joe Aresimowicz is proud of the new legislation. He said:
“I pray today’s bill — the most far-reaching gun safety legislation in the country — will prevent other families from ever experiencing the dreadful loss that the 26 Sandy Hook families have felt.”
We certainly hope he's right!
This is surely a great first step in the right direction, but there is work left to be done!!
Hopefully this CT victory becomes the catalyst for the nationwide gun reform our country anxiously awaits!
