Sandy Hook Advisory Commission submits interim report

An interim report has been released with 42 recommendations in response to the shooting in Newtown.  Governor Dannel Malloy's Sandy Hook Advisory Commission is recommending universal background checks for all gun sales and transfers, the registration of all firearms, and bans on high-capacity magazines. 


Commission member, Former Newtown State Representative Chris Lyddy says they are also suggesting a ban on the possession or sale of guns capable of firing more than 10 rounds of ammunition without reloading.


The panel also believes Connecticut officials should consider requiring all K-12 classrooms to be equipped with doors that can be locked from the inside and hardware that's capable of implementing a full perimeter lockdown. 


Chairman Scott Jackson says the group plans to continue its work, focusing on mental health services.  They are next meeting on Friday.  Members expect to present a comprehensive final report within the year.
