Connecticut state police are reporting long lines at their headquarters as state residents attempt to register assault weapons and large capacity magazines before a December 31st deadline. The deadline is part of tough new gun laws passed in Connecticut following last December’s school shooting in Newtown. (A large capacity magazine is defined as any firearm magazine or other device that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition.)

Connecticut's U.S. Senators say they are pushing to have Congress consider another gun violence prevention bill before the end of this legislative session.  Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal held a roundtable in Bridgeport on Monday with about a dozen family members of gun violence victims, community activists and law enforcement.
