The National Shooting Sports Foundation says Gov. Malloy\’s gun proposals, released Thursday after the governor criticized the progress of the state legislature bipartisan task force, indicate he\’s abandoning his previous commitment to bipartisanship.
\”We are…troubled by the Governor\’s apparent change in attitude and seeming impatience with the approach of the General Assembly\’s bipartisan Gun Violence Task force and even his own commission,\” said the Newtown-based organization in a statement released Thursday criticizing \”a rush to quick-fix legislation.\”
The NSSF praised the General Assembly task force Malloy criticized earlier in the week, and said their organization would review the proposals in hopes of engaging in \”meaningful dialogue\” with the governor.
They ended their statement with a zinger, echoing other Malloy critics: \”We believe [effective policy] is more important than achieving headlines in connection with Vice President Biden\’s visit to Danbury today.\”
