HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has met with Vice President Joe Biden about the administration’s gun control proposals on a trip to Washington to attend President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.

Malloy met privately with Biden on Friday evening. While he was invited to Obama’s announcement this week, Malloy was unable to attend because of prior commitments in the state.
Malloy’s spokesman, Andrew Doba, said the governor would likely discuss issues state officials plan to pursue following the deadly school shooting in Newtown that left 20 first graders and six educators dead.

The Democratic governor is also scheduled to address the U.S. Conference of Mayors on education reform on Saturday morning. Doba said gun violence prevention will likely be discussed.
Malloy returns home Tuesday.
