Blumenthal Statement on Report Showing Decline in Connecticut Gun Deaths

(Hartford, CT)—U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) released the following statement after a report by the Violence Policy Center found that Connecticut ranked as one of the lowest states in the nation for gun deaths in 2016.

“Strong gun laws save lives - as this powerful report proves. Guns continue to cross state lines seamlessly, and gun violence knows no state boundaries.  Connecticut will remain vulnerable until Congress acts to adopt common sense measures to stop the scourge of gun violence.”
