HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- The Governor's Sandy Hook Advisory Commission heard from law enforcement today about changes they recommend for the state's gun laws.
The commission got the same show and tell presentation about weapons that state lawmakers got last month.
The state police chief's association says they would like the state to expand the criteria they can use to consider when issuing gun permits.
"So as the issuing authority we, on a routine basis, when we are exploring the suitability of an applicant, we can take a look at who their associates are, is there anybody in their household who would be disqualified from owning a weapon, what are their work habits, are there issues of domestic violence," said Chief Matthew Reed, Conn. Police Chief Association.
Legislative leaders are now saying they hope to vote on some of the proposals sometime this month.
