Both sides of gun issue pressuring Conn. Lawmakers

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Both sides of the gun control issue are increasing pressure on Connecticut lawmakers as they near votes on changes to state law stemming from the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

The National Rifle Association and other gun rights groups are holding a ``lobby day'' at the Capitol today.

The NRA urged gun rights advocates to discuss with lawmakers their opposition to gun control recommendations made by Gov. Dannel Malloy and Democratic members of a legislative subcommittee that reviewed laws and policies affecting gun violence.

Meanwhile, the Newtown Action Alliance is staging its own ``lobby day'' on Wednesday to demand changes to gun laws.

Both events come as legislative leaders meet privately and try to craft a bipartisan bill addressing the Newtown shooting.
