Governor Lamont Applauds House for Approving Gun Safety Bills

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont is applauding the Connecticut House of Representatives for giving approval tonight to two bills that increase gun safety in Connecticut, including bills that ban ghost guns and require gun owners to safely store firearms.

“The overwhelming majority of Connecticut residents want us to close the gaping loopholes that allow guns to get into the wrong hands, and any measure that encourages safe gun storage to help keep children, residents, and families safe is an action I will always support,” Governor Lamont said. “I urge the Senate to join the House in adopting these bills so that I can sign them into law as soon as possible.”

The bills are HB 7219, An Act Concerning Ghost Guns, and HB 7218, An Act Concerning the Safe Storage of Firearms in the Home and Firearm Safety Programs in Public Schools. They next move to the State Senate for consideration before they can be transmitted to the governor for his signature.
