Rally for gun legislation in New Haven

New Haven

(WTNH) — A gun safety rally took place in New Haven Sunday afternoon.

They were calling on Senator Mitch McConnell to take action. They’d like to see him call the Senate back into session to vote on universal background checks for guns and a federal Red Flag Law.

It would allow police or family members to petition a court to remove firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves.

Just this past week, New Haven Police Captain Anthony Duff was shot and injured during a shooting that killed a 46-year-old man.

Mayor Toni Harp and Senator Richard Blumenthal were at the rally.

The Senate is scheduled to return from recess on September 9th.
