Connecticut lawmaker seeks constitutional convention on guns

Connecticut lawmaker seeks constitutional convention on guns | 06 Aug 2019 | A top Connecticut state lawmaker on Tuesday raised the idea of states banding together to request a constitutional convention to amend the U.S. Constitution and ban assault-style firearms. Hartford Rep. Matthew Ritter, the Democratic majority leader of the House of Representatives, acknowledged it's a "tall order" to get two-thirds of the state legislatures to call for a convention, given fear it could veer into other issues...Ritter believes the push for a constitutional convention could be a rallying point, especially in a state like Connecticut that already enacted wide-ranging, bipartisan gun control legislation following the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting.
