Connecticut U.S. Representative John Larson says he doesn't believe the United States should go it alone in Syria following reports of a chemical weapons attack against its citizens.
The Democrat held a town hall meeting Monday in West Hartford to hear from constituents who voiced a range of opinions.
Larson himself says there should be a response to the regime of President Bashar Assad but the United States shouldn't act unilaterally. WFSB-TV reports Larson told the crowd he's not in favor of putting troops on the ground.
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.
