What Can Local Leaders Do About Gun Violence?

On Friday, Murphy and Blumenthal will gather together a range of Connecticut leaders to talk about reducing gun violence in America.


Connecticut's U.S. Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal will hold a roundtable discussion in Hartford’s North End on reducing gun violence in America on Friday afternoon at 1 p.m.

Joining them will be state and local elected officials, local law enforcement representatives and faith and community leaders to help begin what they are calling "a larger conversation on possible federal responses to the tragic gun violence from Newtown to cities and towns across Connecticut and the country."

The session will be at Parker Memorial Community Center, 2621 Main Street, Hartford.

Where do you think this conversation should begin, and what should it entail in order to reduce gun violence in Connecticut and around the nation? Add your thoughts in the comments.

We need a ban on high powered assault weapons. There is no reason why a civilian in this country should be able to obtain one.

Nancy,168 people including 19 children were killed by a fertilizer bomb in the Oklahoma City bombing. Were you calling for a ban on fertilizer after that happened??

As a responsible gun owner I don't want my rights taken away anyone who thinks bans will work is mistaken and will not be voted in for long
