Connecticut's governor is vowing to take action to prevent another tragedy like the Newtown school massacre.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said in his State of the State address Wednesday that he will do everything in his power to stop further violence. But he did not offer any specific proposals.
An advisory panel he set up last week is due to issue recommendations in March on gun control and other issues arising from the shooting rampage nearly a month ago that left 27 people dead.
Malloy, a Democrat, is moving cautiously in a relatively liberal Northeastern state that has a strong gun culture and is home to some of the nation's best-known firearm makers.
