Members Of Connecticut State Legislature Set To Discuss Gun Control Today

A gun violence task force made up of members of the Connecticut State legislature is set to hold its first meeting today at 1:30.

The task force is calling itself a bipartisan group. The members were selected by the Republican and Democratic leaders in both houses, and they span the full spectrum of positions on gun control.

The participation of NRA favorites like Craig Miner could give some gun-control advocates pause -- but then again, as one advocate put it to me, "The world's changed in Connecticut."

The group is due to put its proposals to an early vote in February. If the pro-gun-control members have their way, Connecticut's new gun laws could end up looking a lot like the tough new bill that just passed in New York.
