Gov. Dannel P. Malloy got a rousing reception today at the U.S, Conference of Mayors meeting in Washington. The governor, who was active in the organization when he was mayor of Stamford, strongly criticized the entertainment industry for helping “de-stigmatize” violence when American society is uncertain how to deal with mental health issues. He also condemned the entertainment industry and gun manufacturers for opposing steps to reduce gun violence.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

I’m not sure how smart it is for the governor of a state whose backbone was built on the firearm industry to slam it.  Previous to the rise of the finance industry CT’s economy was built on guns (Colt & Remington to name a few).

This is like the governor of Michigan ripping on the auto industry.
