Lawmaker: Stricter gun laws haven’t made us safer

Ever since the tragedy at Sandy Hook, I have advocated for constructive and non-partisan solutions to reduce the potential for similar events. Connecticut reacted after that terrible act by passing the strictest gun control laws in the country, including bans on assault rifles, restrictions on magazine capacity, and universal background checks. Irrespective of any other value those policies may have, none of those things have made us even the least bit safer.
