Loved visiting Thorncrest Farm & Milk House Chocolates in Goshen with this afternoon! Grateful that our bipartisan budget agreement invests more than $1 billion in America’s dairy farmers.

Proud to stand with members of our CT delegation, and today to call on my colleagues to act on gun violence.

And I certainly understand that, too. It's hard to imagine how anyone would feel in an emergency situation. All the more reason why arming our schools to the hilt isn't the solution.

In this job, it's easy to become cynical about the prospects for progress - but I'm proud that I've been able to get bills signed to help our vets, protect victims of human trafficking, and encourage entrepreneurs since took office.

Finally: if we attempt to arm every teacher, or 20% of teachers, or every seventh teacher, or any number of teachers, what does it say that we're asking America's educators to spend their time in target practice, not educating our kids? This proposal is beyond flawed.

What happens if a teacher is sued for actions they take after they've trained? Who pays, the school, the district, the teacher? How will the guns be kept in the classroom? What if a student gains access to a weapon?

And then there are the many (obvious) flaws with training every teacher to handle firearms, as law enforcement officers and gun owners have been pointing out: who pays for guns and training? Who assesses the quality of training? What if teachers are injured during training?

Last fall, I stood alongside as she explained how much teachers pay out-of-pocket for basic schools supplies. Evidently we can't afford to provide the basics, but we can afford to spend billions on Glocks and training.
