Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today outlined a broad approach to the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown that claimed 26 lives, convening an expert panel that will explore relevant issues of gun control, school security and mental health.

The governor named Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson to lead the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, whose 15 members will be asked to make a first round of recommendations by March 15, nearly three months before the General Assembly’s adjournment deadline of midnight June 9.

On the same day that Sandy Hook Elementary students returned to classes in a hastily outfitted surplus school in neighboring Monroe, Malloy said he wants to begin devising policy changes in response to the mass shooting.

“We don’t know yet the underlying cause behind this tragedy, and we probably never will,” Malloy said. “But that can’t be an excuse for inaction. I want the commission to have the ability to study every detail, so they can help craft meaningful legislative and policy changes.”
