Governor Ned Lamont signed two gun safety bills into law in honor of National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
One law bans ghost guns, which don’t have a serial number. The other requires guns to be locked in a trunk, glove box or safe when left in a car.
Several state lawmakers, along with many Connecticut residents, have also worn orange to raise awareness of existing efforts to reduce gun violence throughout America.
The movement was started by friends of a 15-year-old Chicago girl, who was fatally shot by gang members in 2013.
Supporters of the movement began wearing orange because that’s the color hunters wear to be more visible out in the woods.
