Nearly two dozen states have sign on in support of an appeal to a federal court decision that ruled Connecticut's new gun control law, adopted after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, is constitutional. Attorneys General from 23 states agree with gun rights advocates that Connecticut's law is unconstitutional because it tramples the 2nd amendment right to bear arms by banning assault weapons and putting in other restrictions.
Speaking in defense of the law, Governor Dannel Malloy says the officials should examine their position.
Malloy says those states have higher crime rates, homicide rates and assaults with a weapon rates that Connecticut. He adds that if they want to defined their way of life, that's up to them.
