ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley says his administration will introduce bills aimed at preventing catastrophic mass shootings like the one that happened last week at an elementary school in Connecticut.
O'Malley told reporters Tuesday that the details of the legislation have yet to be worked out, but that he believes everyone has been changed by Friday's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
The Democratic governor says the shooting presents three main areas of focus: laws relating to assault weapons, mental health treatment and school safety.
O'Malley made the remarks during a broad discussion of the state's progress in areas including education, transportation and the environment.
