Danielle Moghadam, with her 2-year-old son Elia, and Stephanie Dominello with Teddy, also 2, listen with emotion as Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz speaks during a news conference at the state Capitol in Hartford on May 25, 2022, a day after the Texas elementary school shooting.

In the wake of Tuesday’s mass shooting in an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, CT Against Gun Violence Executive Director Jeremy Stein joined “All Things Considered” to give his perspective.

He talked about the progress Connecticut has made since the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012, his organization’s mobilization plans for the 2022 election, misinformation from gun enthusiasts that he tries to dispel, and whether ghost guns have been a game-changer in efforts to pass effective gun safety legislation.
