Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed a bill into law Thursday afternoon that will bring sweeping changes to gun control.
On Monday, a bipartisan agreement on gun control was unveiled by lawmakers that proposed limiting magazines to no more than 10 rounds. Those who currently have larger magazines would have to register them with state police.
The legislation, which is more than 100 pages long, will create strong penalties for anyone who carries large ammunition magazines away from home or a gun range.
The state would also become the first in the country to create a dangerous weapon offender registry and there would be universal background checks for assault weapons.
The House and the Senate voted in favor of the 139-page bill crafted by leaders from both major parties in the Democratic-controlled General Assembly.
Just after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Connecticut Senate voted 26-10 to pass the gun control legislation and the House passed the bill 105-44 just before 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

They are now guilty of Treason against the people of Connecticut and the People of the United States.

It’s a FELONY.
Arrest the Governor and all of the legislators who voted for this.
Yes. I’m dead serious.
Needs more “Battle of Athens”.
The blood is now on the hands of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and those in the legislature who are disarming law abiding citizens but not criminals.
As well they should be. This is an open declaration of War.
Use it as an excuse to begin confiscating arms from law abiding folks in the interest of "public safety".
“...strong penalties for anyone who carries large ammunition magazines away from home or a gun range.”
How would you get them to the gun range?
Wow I can feel a loud sucking noise from the criminally inclinded steaming up the I95 corridor
Details. Details, besides it's the thought that counts and you will have an opportunity in court to prove your innocence... Mega Sarcasm tag./
If I were a liberal Democrat in Ct, I’d be wiping my ass with the little people too.
They keep getting re-elected.
Put them in the trunk of the car, drive directly away from the state and never come back.
