“It is unbelievable that John McKinney, who voted for the gun control bill “SB 1160,” now says if he were governor and the legislature sent him a bill repealing the legislation, he would sign it,” said Nancy DiNardo, Connecticut Democratic Party Chairwoman. “This is political pandering at its worst.”


Questioner: I have a few questions here from your constituents. Because one of them was, that got sent me, is if Republicans took over the General Assembly [McKinney: Right] and if they put forward a repeal of SB 1160 [McKinney: Yep], if you were elected governor, would you sign that?

McKinney: If the legislature repeals something, I think the governor owes a great deference to what the legislature does, and I would.
