HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he wants to immediately ban high-capacity ammunition magazines, require background checks for the transfer of any firearm and expand the state's assault weapons ban.
The Democrat released a package of what he calls "common sense gun safety reforms" on Thursday, a day after he questioned whether a legislative task force that's reviewing guns and other issues following the Newtown school shooting can reach a bipartisan deal on law changes.
Malloy was expected to discuss his plan at a gun violence conference in Danbury. Vice President Joe Biden was scheduled to speak at the event.
Malloy's proposal includes law changes, executive actions, and recommendations to the own commission that's still reviewing the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that claimed 26 lives.

Stop wasting our time and Money and start to do the job You were elected to do. You are wasting time on these reforms that the Criminal is not going to listen to.Do you honestly think people are going to run down to reg. these weapons? Would you? Even if people comply with high Capacity. They can carry multiple guns or clips. Dan your telling me that the 10 max for a mag change gives 911 a little more time to respond ?
I want a Real cop At the locked front door. He can call 911 for the clean up.
Get your head out of Obama's @$$ and fix the budget
