Connecticut lawmakers have approved what advocacy groups call the strongest and most comprehensive gun legislation in the nation. Gov. Dannel Malloy is expected to sign the bill, which bans some weapons as well as the sale or purchase of high-capacity magazines like those used in the Newtown shooting. The bill also requires background checks for all gun purchases.
