Actor Paul Rudd is endorsing a national version of Ethan’s Law, a proposal by a Guilford family for stronger gun storage laws.
Ethan Song died in 2018 at age 15 when he was handling the unsecured gun of a friend’s father. The gun was stored in the friend’s house in a Tupperware container alongside bullets and the keys to the gun’s trigger lock.
In a video posted to the Ethan Song Acts of Kindness Facebook page, Rudd endorsed the measure.
“Regardless of where you stand on the gun issue I think we can all agree that guns should be stored safety and out of the reach of kids," Rudd said in the video.
Kristin and Michael Song, Ethan’s parents, have been working with the Connecticut Against Gun Violence along with the Newtown Action Alliance to gather support for a national version of the law.
The Connecticut version of the legislation passed the state House of Representatives in early May with bipartisan support.
