He alluded to the massacre that happened in the school in Newtown and the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, but was not specific. Also the NRA was not included in the school safety discussion. According to the governor “Today we wanted to kind of visit with those who are in education and law enforcement. Those are the public servants that sometimes their voices aren’t always heard.”
