HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is crediting Connecticut residents with pulling together and fighting for common causes “in the aftermath of the unthinkable” in his annual Thanksgiving message.

Malloy said he has seen the state’s resolve “in the faces of the thousands of parents” that came to the state Capitol this year and voiced support for “commonsense gun violence prevention legislation,” referring to the law passed after last year’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Malloy said state residents have also shown strength during the economic downturn as well as dangerous storms that have hit the state, including last year’s

Superstorm Sandy which devastated some coastal communities.

In the traditional address, Malloy said he’s thankful “we have the resolve to see all of our biggest challenges through to the end.”
