Firearms Resurface As An Election Issue

Feb 21, 2018

Students surviving the Valentine’s Day school shooting in Parkland, Florida insist they will be the ones to finally end the gridlock over gun policy on the national level. Today we look at how the renewed debate may play out in Connecticut and the November election. 

At least one Republican gubernatorial candidate now says he would support repealing state gun control measures enacted after Sandy Hook. That candidate will be among those on stage for Wednesday’s GOP debate in West Haven, which we preview. But not all his potential rivals for the party’s nomination have been invited to participate.

And we’ll discuss why certain candidates for governor may skip over the party convention process and just petition their way on to the primary ballot.
