MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is planning to unveil his plans to toughen Connecticut gun control laws, frustrated by the pace of the General Assembly's efforts to address the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Malloy spokesman Andrew Doba said the Democrat will announce his "commonsense" gun-related legislation Thursday during a conference on gun violence at Western Connecticut State University. Vice President Joe Biden and parents of a student killed in Newtown are also scheduled to speak.
Doba said Malloy's proposals will address high-capacity ammunition magazines, the state's assault weapons ban and gun storage.
Malloy said in an interview published Wednesday that he doesn't believe the General Assembly will reach a bipartisan agreement on gun control. House Republican leader Lawrence Cafero accused Malloy of trying to usurp a legislative task force.
