Task force to reduce gun violence

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- A task force recently formed in the hopes of reducing gun violence has announced a new website.

The special bipartisan task force who was recently announced by legislative leaders, is in charge of developing recommendations designed to reduce gun violence, enhance school safety, and increase access to mental health care.

The task force's new website includes information on membership and four scheduled public hearings, as well as a link for submitting online testimony. Testimony can be delivered in person, or e-mailed to asaferconnecticut@cga.ct.gov.

The task force was created in response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook, in which 20 children and six educators were killed during a shooting at the Newtown school on December 14th.

The more they and the Media spew taking people's rights away from them the more shootings we have. Seems to me I have read of one every single day since they started - throughout the US.
