Connecticut lawmakers agree on strict gun laws

| No Comments

Connecticut lawmakers announced a deal on some of the country's toughest gun laws Monday from proposals after the mass shooting in the state Monday, The Associated Press reported.
The ban would included new registration requirements for existing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets, The Associated Press reported.
It would also include new state-issued eligibility certificates for the purchase of any rife, shotgun or ammunition and a mandates that offenders convicted of 40 or more weapons offenses register with the state, the New York Times reported.
The deal did not include a complete ban on high-capacity magazine ownership, something anti-gun forces asked for, the New York Times reported.
"When you take all the elements and compare it, I think you could judiciously say this is the strongest bill in the nation," Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence told the New York Times.
The proposal was revealed Monday after weeks of bipartisan negotiation, The Associated Press reported.
