The Legislative Gun Task Force, a special bipartisan group, will hold its first meeting on Friday.

The lawmakers will come up with legislation dealing with gun control, school safety and mental health.

Malloy has said this must be done for the families of the 20 first graders and six staff members killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on Dec. 14.

A package of bills will not be ready until the end of February and lawmakers want to take this time to thoughtfully put together a plan.

“Taking quick action is important, but taking smart action is even more important,” Rep. Brendan Sharkey, Speaker of the House, said.

The meeting will take place at 1:30 p.m. at the state Capitol.
