HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- After all the talk, all the emotional demonstrations and pleas, today could be day lawmakers get a look at gun control legislation crafted in direct response to Sandy Hook school shooting.
The Hartford Courant reports Democratic and Republican leaders have apparently hammered out agreement and will present it to their caucuses today.
The focus has been on expanding background checks, an expanded ban on assault weapons and a ban on high capacity ammunition magazines.
Last week newly released documents revealed investigators discovered hundreds of rounds of ammunition purchased legally at home of the Sandy Hook shooter. At Sandy Hook Elementary school, investigators found 153 spent shell casings.
The proposal will be pitched behind closed doors today. There will be an effort to bring it up for debate and a possible vote on Wednesday.
There has been no comment yet from the Malloy Administration, which has been drafting its own gun legislation.
