Obama to Visit Connecticut to Encourage Congress to Act Against Gun Violence
“President Obama’s visit is proof yet again that the Connecticut effect is not going away,” U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy said in a statement. “His visit sends a strong message to the state and nation — we must act now to reduce gun violence.
Less than four months have passed since the Newtown tragedy, and already more than 3,000 additional lives have been lost to gun violence — including more than 50 innocent children.”
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy confirmed Tuesday that Obama would make a stop in the state, but declined to offer any details.
