Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced the formation of the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, a panel that will review current policy and make specific recommendations in the areas of public safety, with particular attention paid to school safety, mental health and gun violence prevention, according to press release from the governor's office.
“Shortly after the initial horror and the immediate grief over what occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, there was one question on the lips of many of our residents: How do we make sure this never happens again? It’s the right question, even as we recognize that despite our best efforts, bad things will happen,” Governor Malloy said. “We don’t yet know the underlying cause behind this tragedy, and we probably never will. But that can’t be an excuse for inaction. I want the commission to have the ability to study every detail, so they can help craft meaningful legislative and policy changes.
