Biden To Speak On Gun Violence At WCSU

DANBURY, Conn. (AP) _ U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is coming to Connecticut to deliver remarks at a conference on gun violence.

Biden is scheduled to give the keynote address at next Thursday’s discussion at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury.

The conference is being hosted by U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy and U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty. It will focus on federal efforts to reduce gun violence and feature state and local leaders as well as mental health experts and faith leaders.
Danbury is a few miles away from Newtown, where a gunman killed 26 people inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14.
