From Sandy Hook Promise
24 Sandy Hook family members who lost loved ones on December 14th set aside their grief and summoned their courage on Monday to exercise one of their most basic rights as citizens. They called on the Legislature to strengthen the large capacity magazine provision to help prevent others from experiencing their fate; and the Legislature responded. Adding the requirement to register existing magazines, combined with the limit on sales of magazines over 10 bullets, makes this provision stronger than the original bipartisan legislative task force proposal and gives law enforcement more tools with which to ensure that large capacity magazines ultimately disappear from the state of Connecticut.
We thank the Governor, Senator John McKinney and Senator Beth Bye for their support and we thank the legislature for passing the strongest gun responsibility legislation in the nation.
