More courage needed on gun controls

Kudos to Sen. Chris Murphy for strongly advocating gun legislation. It takes courage to uphold one's convictions. Unfortunately, he had to put up with some bad behavior at the New London meeting. Thanks to state Rep. Diana Urban for showing up. I didn't see state Sen. Andrew Maynard listed as being at the meeting. He has remained strangely silent on the gun issue. It would be good to know how he stands. It's a shame that he has not taken a public stand for our children and our cities' gun-violence problem.

Some of our legislators have A ratings by the NRA but an F rating in courage. We the electorate hopefully won't be silent at the next election. As a former teacher at Newtown, it is painful to try to understand why anyone does not support comprehensive gun legislation.
