High Schoolers Interview Rep. Carter for Gun Violence Documentary

Carter spoke on his role in Connecticut's Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children's Safety.


Rep. Dan Carter (R-2: Bethel, Newtown, Danbury and Redding) spoke to documentary filmmakers about his part in the state's Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children's Safety last Thursday, according to the House Republican Office, which made the announcement Wednesday.

According to House Republicans, Carter took question from high school students as part of the documentary, which is sponsored by the Civic Life Project, an organization that "aims to motivate and engage today’s high school students to connect with fundamentals of our democracy and Constitution."

A second-term representative, Carter has played a large role in the legislative response to the 12/14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Most recently, he attended a meeting organized by Newtown Action Alliance at Newtown High School to hear public comments.

The task force has told the public they expect to make recommendations on ways to reduce gun violence and make schools safer by mid-March.

Is anyone considering additional requirements for childcare/daycare centers? I know some conservatives have blocked recommendations to require surveillance and other measures meant to improve/ensure safety and accountability.
