Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is expected to sign a wide-ranging bill that includes sweeping new restrictions on weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines, a response to last year's deadly school shooting in Newtown.

And our local paper was full of pictures of Connecticut citizens filling gun shops to get in under the bell. I applaud the law and hiss at the fools arming themselves against non existent enemies. And I wonder when, if ever, will we learn, truly learn, that it is not guns that kill people, it is people with guns that do. All 50 states have well-regulated militias and quite a few self-appointed ones as well armed to the teeth with weapons so lethal that looking upon them is enough to make a grown man cry. It isn't enough to shoot someone once, you must shoot them 20 times, just to be sure. We still make me sick.

This is perhaps the only best way to prevent any more killing of the innocent

Good for him. We don't need another Sandy Hook where a bunch of innocent children die before their time.

Hopefully, this is only a start. The NRA, and its followers will probably re-double their pernicious efforts, now.

Thank God there are still some sane people in this country.

We need to start a call and demand to Congress and the President to "COPY CONNECTICUT" and if the Federal Government can't get it right then states need to follow the lead of the people in CONNECTICUT. The law that has been signed by the Honorable and BRAVE Gov. Malloy should sweep the country if we have any brains and compassion at all.

Noted. Thanks for spreading the good news, Cal! My wish is for this to spread like wildfire to other states as well as Congress. I understand the hostility of gun manufacturers aligned with and supported by the NRA to plaster the media with hateful messages to those in support of gun control. But, we must continue to raise our voices and press others to raise theirs even louder and stronger.....no backing down or shutting up. We outnumber them greatly. Don't forget that.
