The Wheelhouse: In Congress and the Courts, Talk Surrounds Guns

Jun 22, 2016

It's been a busy week in Connecticut's political world. Sen. Chris Murphy rode the wave following his nearly 15-hour-long filibuster to get a vote on gun laws. That wave crashed this week after his colleagues rejected new restrictions on gun sales. But several gun-related issues made news from the judicial branch. This hour, our weekly news roundtable discusses these developments and an update from the state capitol where the legislature overrode some of Gov. Dannel Malloy's vetoes, but not as many as expected. 

Also, campaign finance is back in the news because the Democratic party settled with election regulators over mailers in support of Gov. Malloy. Meanwhile, a court upheld former Gov. John Rowland's conviction related to congressional races in Connecticut's 5th district.
