NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Mayor Michael Bloomberg met Gov. Dannel P. Malloy at City Hall to discuss Connecticut’s new gun control law.
Malloy and Bloomberg met in the second-floor bullpen.
“There is a certain reality that America’s got to get used to that guns aren’t making you safer in your house. They’re increasing precipitously the opportunity for your child to kill themselves or someone else,” Malloy said following his half-hour conversation with Bloomberg. “There’s a reality that 19,000 people are going to commit suicide because there’s a gun in their house. And if there wasn’t a gun in that house and they didn’t commit suicide at that time, their chances of committing suicide at any time decreases by 90 percent.”
