Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy broke down on Monday as he described being with Sandy Hook parents in the immediate aftermath of last week’s attack at the elementary school.
Calling for stricter gun laws, including an assault weapons ban and a ban on large ammunition magazines, Malloy gave a press briefing after attending the funeral for six-year-old Noah Pozner. The lieutenant governor attended the funeral of Jack Pinto, also six.
Malloy was overcome with emotion and his voice cracked repeatedly as he spoke to reporters.
“There really are no words to describe” the pain of the parents, Malloy said. “You see little coffins and your heart has to ache.”
