Gov. Dannel Malloy has weighed in on the ongoing investigation into the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in December.
"Like many others, I was disappointed and angered to learn that certain information about the Newtown shooting had been leaked, specifically with concern for the victim's families who may have been hearing this news for the first time," Malloy said.
Malloy said he contacted the Chief State's Attorney's Office and they agreed to release additional information that is relevant to the investigation and to provide information about where the investigation currently stands.
"As to what information can reasonably be shared at this time, that is a question that must be left to the State's Attorney and other law enforcement," Malloy said. "As a former prosecutor, I'm sensitive to the need for an independent investigation and believe that we must allow their work to continue without any undue interference."
State Republican House Leader Larry Cafero had called on investigators to give lawmakers a detailed report on their findings in order to help them draft legislation.
Malloy, in his statement, lashed out at Cafero.
"To Mr. Cafero and those others I must ask: what more could you possibly need to know? We know for a fact that on Dec. 14, a very disturbed young man took a military-style rifle with high-capacity magazines into a school and murdered 20 innocent children and six innocent adults. We know he had access to that weapon and others, although they were registered to someone else."
Malloy said the vast majority of people here in Connecticut can all agree on one "simple, common-sense thing we can do right now: ban the sale of the weapon he used, to outlaw the high-capacity magazines he used, and to put in place systems that will make it much more difficult for a weapon like that to fall into the wrong hands."
Malloy is a Dictator wannabe.
He really needs to prove his innocence.
“Information” is what lawmakers don’t use when they set out to violate the Second Amendment.
Notice, not one suggestion about what to do about very disturbed young men.
As I pointed out to a far left friend of mine, even if the leftist wet dream came true, that every gun on the planet vanished, as well as any memory that such a thing ever existed, disturbed young men would remain, and would find other means by which to go out in a blaze of glory, taking as many innocents as they could along with them.
Malloy left out two equally "common sense" ideas: Ban the make of car he drove to the school, and ban the wearing of boxers if the shooter wore boxers.
No data, but I suspect that a “vast majority” does not support a ban on weapons which can fire 10 rounds without reloading which Malloy’s stooges on the Sandy hook commission recommended
How do we know he used a rifle? He had one but he had pistols too. If they lose control of the narrative and it turns out that no “Assault Weapon” was used, the wind goes out of their sails for a ban.
Yeah, by killing her and stealing the weapons. Clearly logical rationality is not one of the Governor's qualities.
How innocent were they if they were union teachers?
As far as I can tell all these statements are based of a Quinnipiac poll from March 8th. The “poll” of 1,009 registered (Dem?) voters claims 93% was Universal Background checks.
We as citizens have every right to know about the findings of the investigation, especially in view of the certainty that the callous murder of innocents by a mad man will be used to deprive us of our God given freedoms. To paraphrase a well worn liberal saying, "Information delayed is information denied".
In vulgar language - "F$$k you, Governor". Your political agenda does not trump our rights, under any circumstances, for any reason.
Gun permits are up in Newtown.
High capacity had nothing to do with it. Lanza only used half of the magazine capacity. He changed mags after about 15 rounds.
Not conceding background checks. Background checks can be used to deny permits for frivolous reasons by police chiefs. Not to mention the invasion of privacy.
Stupid election stealer has no right to pass judgement on anyone. If the dems and union thugs were not in charge of Connecticut he would not be governor.
“How do we know he used a rifle?”
Because the police and medical examiners have said he used a rifle.
I have not seen a singke official autopsy released. Have you?
I wonder what the state is trying to hide.
