Is Connecticut legislature going too far on gun bills?

More than 1,000 people came to the state Capitol on Monday for an emotional hearing on guns. Some called for a ban on assault weapons and magazines that can hold large numbers of  bullets. Others said such restrictions wouldn’t have stopped Adam Lanza from his massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December.  What’s your view? Will some of the bills proposed for Connecticut, such as heavy taxes on ammunition, prevent killings or protect innocent people? Or not?
