In a statement Tuesday night, Gov. Ned Lamont decried the “devastating” news of a mass shooting at an Uvalde, Texas elementary school, while calling for stricter gun control laws both locally and federally.
“One life taken by gun violence is too many, but 15 innocent lives, including 14 children, is an utter tragedy,” Lamont said in a statement. “Nearly ten years after Sandy Hook, Connecticut knows this feeling all too well. Our collective hearts and prayers go out to the families in Uvalde trying to process the unimaginable.
