Connecticut governor orders review of gun laws; Sandy Hook resumes classes

Source: CNN

As Sandy Hook Elementary School students returned to class Thursday for the first time since last month's massacre, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy set a two-month deadline for a commission to address the state's gun laws, mental health policies and public security issues.

"We don't know the underlying cause of this tragedy, and we probably never will," said Malloy, who added that that is "no reason for inaction."

Malloy appointed Hamden, Connecticut, Mayor Scott Jackson to lead a special advisory commission and set a March 15 deadline for an initial report that is expected to be addressed during the next legislative session.

"We can work together to make our state a model for the rest of the nation," said Malloy, who also called on Congress to enact stricter national gun control laws.

1. Great start!

This will be the beginning of the age of sensible gun control for this country, and what a fitting place for it to be kicked off. Congratulations to Gov. Dan Malloy, a solid Democrat.
