HARTFORD, Conn. — The Connecticut chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, applauded the Connecticut Senate for passing three gun safety bills. At an advocacy day hosted by Connecticut Moms Demand Action last month, Governor Lamont indicated he would sign these life-saving bills into law. The three bills are:
“We’re thrilled to see these common-sense bills head to the governor,” said Kate Martin, a volunteer with the Connecticut chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “People across the state have been urging our lawmakers to advance these bills because we know they will make Connecticut a safer place. We look forward to this legislation being signed into law.”
In addition to a successful advocacy day last month, volunteers collected more than 1,800 signatures on a petition supporting Ethan’s law. They also made 200 hundred calls to lawmakers, urging them to advance HB 7223.
