Tuesday marked the 20th anniversary of the shooting rampage at the state lottery headquarters in Newington. The horrific event prompted the passage of the state’s so-called “risk warrant” law allowing police to temporarily seize weapons from those deemed a threat to themselves or others.
This hour we examine how that law has worked out in practice, and why Florida and other states just now are looking to follow our lead as a response to the Parkland, Florida school shooting three weeks ago.
Also now that a group of private sector business leaders is out with its map for turning around Connecticut’s fiscal ship, we assess the details of the commission's proposals, how well they add up, and their chances of ever being implemented.
And we look at the latest developments in the ever-changing race for governor.
