Gun-Control Advocates to Back CT Allies with Super PAC

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

A coalition of 28 gun-control groups in Connecticut marked the anniversary of a legislative victory – bipartisan passage of a sweeping gun law in response to the Newtown massacre – by promising today to protect their allies from political defeat this fall.

On the spot where Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed the bill into law at the State Capitol, the groups announced they will form a super PAC to defend the 26 senators and 105 representatives who passed the legislation and governor who signed it in response to one of the nation’s worst mass shootings.

“This will be the greatest ever collaboration of these Connecticut groups,” said Ron Pinciaro, the executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence. “We are united in our commitment.”

Whether the coalition can develop the strategy, resources and capabilities to turn out voters in Connecticut is untested. Nationally, gun owners have outmuscled gun-control advocates at the polls, most notably in Colorado, where two Democratic senators who played critical roles in passing state gun laws were ousted in special elections last year.
