Mayor Segarra Statement on the Passage of Connecticut's New Gun Laws

(April 4, 2013) – Mayor Segarra released the following statement today regarding the passage of new gun laws by Connecticut’s legislature:

“Today is an historic day for the State of Connecticut. Our legislature has shown extraordinary leadership by passing a bill that includes a ban on high capacity magazines, increased access to mental health services, strengthens school safety and imposes universal background checks.

By demonstrating willingness to compromise the legislature achieved comprehensive bi-partisan legislation that pays tribute to the innocent lives that were lost in Newtown and the victims of gun violence in all cities and towns across the country. I also applaud Governor Malloy and the people in our State for demanding action and playing a critical role in getting this done. We have proven today that you can achieve consensus and move beyond the partisan bickering to effect real change."
