MAYOR BRONIN APPLAUDS “STATES FOR GUN SAFETY” COALITION, HIGHLIGHTS DANGER OF OUT-OF-STATE FIREARMS 

  

HARTFORD, CONN (February 22, 2018) – Mayor Luke Bronin released the following statement in response to the announcement this morning by the Governors of Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island that they are forming a multi-state coalition to reduce gun violence. 

“Connecticut has some of the strongest gun safety laws in the country, but Hartford police officers often see guns from states with looser gun laws used in crimes in our City,” said Mayor Bronin.  “I’m proud that Governors in our region are stepping up to curb the flow of out-of-state guns and to do long-needed research on gun violence.”
