Gov. Malloy And Lt. Gov. Wyman Statements On The School Shooting In Parkland, Florida

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman released the following statements regarding the school shooting today in Parkland, Florida:

Governor Malloy said, “Our hearts break for the lives cut short and for the families who have been robbed of a loved one. The injured remain in our thoughts, as do the heroic first responders. While we don’t know all the details of this horrific event, this is act of carnage is all too familiar. This is the 18th school shooting in the 45 days of 2018. That’s not acceptable. Surely we can all agree that our classrooms should be places of learning where kids don’t have to worry about the threat of unspeakable violence. I once again implore Congress to do something to reduce the epidemic of gun violence in this country. Enough is enough.”

Lt. Governor Wyman said, “We are horrified by yet another incident of gun violence in our schools. Our prayers are with the victims of this terrible event, and their families. We are thinking about the many students, staff, and faculty who have had to go through this tragedy in Florida and throughout the nation. In Connecticut, we know what that means first-hand, and our hearts are with the people of Florida as they move forward.”
