Murphy: Do you think guns have any place in or around schools?
DeVos: That is best left to locales and states to decide. If the underlying question is —
Murphy: You can’t say definitively today that guns shouldn’t be in schools?
DeVos: I will refer back to (Wyoming) Senator (Mike) Enzi and the school he was talking about in Wyoming. I think probably there, I would imagine that there is probably a gun in the schools to protect from potential grizzlies.
Murphy: If President Trump moves forward with his plan to ban gun free school zones, will you support that?
DeVos: I will support what the president-elect does. If the question is around gun violence and the results of that, please know that my heart bleeds and is broken for those families that have lost any individual due to gun violence.
Murphy: I look forward to working with you, but I also look forward to you coming to Connecticut to talk about the role of guns in schools.
