With Sharp Elbows, Malloy Jumps Into Gun Debate

UPDATE With a veiled swipe at Republican leaders, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is ready to pronounce the legislature’s bipartisan task force on gun violence a failure and propose his own comprehensive package of gun-control measures.

Malloy’s proposal is expected to be released Thursday at 10 a.m., before he shares a national stage with Vice President Joe Biden at a symposium on gun violence at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury.

The governor’s entrance into the legislative gun debate came without the careful stagecraft of previous proposals. Instead, the Democratic governor first mentioned his intention Tuesday in a meeting with reporters and editors at the Journal Inquirer, which published his remarks today.

His comments, especially a personal swipe at the legislature’s Republican minority leaders, generated immediate criticism from House Speaker J. Brendan Sharkey, D-Hamden, and the GOP leaders, Rep. Lawrence F. Cafero Jr. of Norwalk and Sen. John McKinney of Fairfield.
