Connecticut to ban gun sales to 'no fly' listers
Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy said Thursday he will sign an executive order banning people on federal terrorism watch lists from buying guns in the state.
"Like all Americans, I have been horrified by the recent terrorist attacks in San Bernardino and Paris," Malloy said. "They have been and should be a wake-up call to our nation. I am taking this common sense step with this executive order simply because it's the right thing to do. It's the smart thing to do."
Malloy said that if you aren't trusted to fly because of a watch list, you shouldn't be able to buy a gun.
"Why anyone would stand idly by and knowingly allow those on government watch lists to purchase guns is truly unbelievable. Since Congress so far has failed to act, we will," Governor Malloy said.
