John Scalise, Pres. and Owner of Ammunition Storage Components, a New Britain company that makes automatic weapon magazines, talks about what the proposed gun legislation would mean to his business. In the background are Jake McGuigan, a lobbyist with the National Shooting Sports Foundation and Mark Malkowski, right, Pres. of STAG Arms in New Britain, the makers of AR-15 rifles. The Connecticut General Assembly is expected to approve a wide-ranging gun control bill Wednesday that will immediately change the way firearms are regulated in the state. Hundreds of NRA members lined the halls of the Capitol as the legislators argued the bill.
