GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Stefanowski: CT's strong gun laws 'should stay that way'

Following the Texas school shooting that killed 19 children, Republican candidate for governor Bob Stefanowski said Connecticut's "strongest gun laws in the entire nation...should stay that way."
It's a departure from 2018, when a leaked video showed Stefanowski saying the Sandy Hook gun law "is not a good bill. I will veto any legislation that makes it tougher on gun owners."
He issued a video statement Wednesday afternoon.
"Connecticut already has the strongest gun laws in the entire nation and they should stay that way. But I will also use my platform as governor to urge Congress for a comprehensive overhaul of our federal gun laws to promote solutions that protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners, but that also prevents those who pose a risk to themselves and others from getting their hands on a gun in the first place," Stefanowski said.
