FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman praised the Connecticut General Assembly’s unanimous, final approval Wednesday afternoon of legislation to create a special fund to assist individuals who suffered psychological trauma as a result of their work related to the Sandy Hook school tragedy.

“I want to commend members of the General Assembly, Democrats and Republicans, for coming together to provide relief to those who have been affected by the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School,” Malloy said. “While 82 days have passed, the anguish of that day is still raw for many. In the depth of that anguish, we in government have undertaken a critically important debate, one where complete consensus will be difficult if not impossible. But that should not stop us from doing the good and decent things that honor those who serve our communities, especially those who have done so admirably in our darkest hour.”

Malloy said he looks forward to signing the bill into law.

“This bill is another example of how Connecticut has responded to this tragedy with unity and compassion and a real desire to do whatever we can to help those directly affected on that horrible day," Wyman said. "I congratulate the leaders of both parties and their corporate partners in this effort and hope that this spirit of cooperation continues to guide us as we address the numerous and complex issues that Sandy Hook has presented.”

I find that most of the pro gun types are like myself a complete and total failures. Usually we own guns to make ourself feel important as we have very low self worth and are cowards....real sissies...Most of us also have mental disorders and multiple personalty disorder along with referring to ourselves in the 3rd person.

Pony Tail Steve:

john.real.956:

We need true gun control so this doesn't happen again...We need to ban these weapons of mass destruction and then move to repeal the 2nd amendment.

Ken P Jr:

Typical liberal silliness, just throw money at it. Money cant bring the dead back to life but since nobody wants to address the faulty legislation that mandates helplessness in schools we'll just give them money instead of control over the saftey of our children.
The only complex issue is how to get our lawmakers to act responsibly. How to address the cause of the tragedy is startlingly simple & was addressed by both the federal & state legislatures loooong ago. Allow people to defend themselves by not infringing upon our RKBA. Its a shame so many of our elected officials choose to ignore the reality of just what THEY have created with gun free school zones.

john.real.956:

WOW
These republicans are the ones that have blood on their hands and now they could care less about the first responders to this slaughter....
