    WASHINGTON – The National Rifle Association tapped a Newtown parent who lost a son in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings to help it unveil a proposal Tuesday that recommended putting armed personnel in the nation's schools.

    At a press conference Tuesday, Mark Mattioli, whose son James died in the Sandy Hook massacre, supported the NRA's initiative, made public the week before the U.S. Senate begins a gun-control debate.

  • Malloy Lays Back On Guns, For Now

    Gov. Dannel P. Malloy seems to be following the unlikely example of Goldilocks in dealing with the legislature on gun-control after Sandy Hook. He is looking for an approach that is just right after first being too soft, then too hard.

    He wants the legislature to pass a strict ban on the sale and possession of large-capacity magazines, like the ones Adam Lanza used to kill 20 first graders and six educators. But he won't say if its absence would be a deal breaker, an invitation to a veto.
