One of tonight's speakers at the Democratic National Convention will be Erica Smegielski, the daughter of Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung. Hochsprung was a victim of the 2012 massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. Following that horrific rampage, Connecticut managed to pass one of the strongest gun control laws in the nation.

We check-in with the Connecticut governor about the state's gun laws and his reaction to the convention so far.
