In 1996, a man went into a gym class in Scotland, [and] killed sixteen 5-and 6-year-olds and the teacher. A few years ago in Norway, a young, deranged, young man killed, what, 69 people on an island, mostly teenagers. Connecticut has among the toughest gun laws in this country. Didn’t help. Scotland and Norway have very tough gun laws. Didn’t help.

...Remember, we did have a ban on assault weapons. When we put the ban in place, these incidents did not really decline in a measurable way, and when we took it off, they did not increase in a measurable way.
