CNN Touts CT Gun Control As ‘Model,’ Ignores Recent Murder Increases

<p>Over the past week, strict gun laws in Connecticut have been repeatedly touted on CNN as an example to be enacted nationally, with <em>New Day</em> host Alisyn Camerota pushing the laws the most frequently. The simplistic narrative has been promoted that there has been a “direct correlation” between the passage of new gun control in 2013 and lower numbers of homicides and violent incidents seen in the state the years since. But no mention has been made of the fact that two of the three most populous cities in Connecticut experienced a doubling of homicides in 2017 meaning that, after the numbers for the entire state are tallied, there will likely be a substantial increase in the state’s total number of homicides from the previous year’s levels.</p>
