Alan Chartock: Here we are in the Congressional Corner with our friend Joe Courtney. He's the congressman from the beautiful second district of Connecticut, and it is beautiful, Long Island Sound not that long a swim to Fire Island. So my question to you, Joe is COVID. You know, we have these two things going on right now, we have the concept of the police and police reform, and we have COVID. And COVID, a lot of people thought was going away and then we could start to reopen things. You got any thoughts on that?

Members of Connecticut's congressional delegation are commemorating the upcoming six-month anniversary of the school shooting in Newtown with speeches on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Reps. Elizabeth Esty, Rosa DeLauro, John Larson, Joe Courtney and Jim Himes, all Democrats, are scheduled to address their colleagues this morning.

They are expected to renew their call for federal action on enhanced background checks for gun purchases, a proposal that failed to receive enough support in the Senate back in April despite public support.
