Senate President Looney & Majority Leader Duff Praise President Obama’s Executive Action to Reduce Gun Violence

Senate President Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) today released a joint statement praising President Barack Obama’s announcement of his intention to use executive action to reduce gun violence.

“It is imperative that we have a national strategy for closing dangerous loopholes in our gun laws. In the absence of Congressional action, we welcome President Obama’s executive action. In Connecticut, unlike Congress, we passed the strongest, most comprehensive laws in the nation, proving that Democrats and Republicans can come together in a bipartisan manner to protect our families. President Obama came to Connecticut to praise our laws as a national model, and today we applaud the president’s leadership on this issue.”
