Looney’s Leadership on Gun Control to Take Center Stage

As the nation continues to mourn the victims of the Newtown massacre, the state legislature will likely take up bills introduced by the General Assembly’s leader on gun control issues, state Senate Majority Leader Marty Looney of New Haven.

It was Looney who co-sponsored Connecticut’s assault weapons ban that passed in 1993. He also introduced a measure two years ago that would have banned the sale of ammunition to people who are not legally permitted to own a gun. That effort failed. He will likely introduce that bill again.

The problem is the guns used in the mass shooting were legal in Connecticut and owned by the killer’s mother. Looney plans to look at expanding the current state law to ban other types of weapons.
