Republican Tom Foley, the leading challenger to Gov. Dannel Malloy, continues to dance around a clear answer on the gun control question. On Dennis House’s Face the State, it appeared as if Foley would not have embraced the bill that Republican leaders got behind:
… the debate should have been on this gun control measure on what would have prevented the tragedy from happening. It should have been limited to what would have prevented this same thing from happening again.
Foley does say he would have supported an expansion of mental health programs, a costly solution that legislators have thus far avoided.
