Wisconsin's Reaction to CT Gun Control Law

CREATED Apr. 4, 2013

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Both sides of the gun control in Wisconsin are keeping an eye on Connecticut where lawmakers have passed what some consider the strongest law control law in the nation so far. 

Connecticut lawmakers gave final approval early Thursday to a wide-ranging bill that includes sweeping new restrictions on weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines, a response to last year's deadly school shooting in Newtown that one lawmaker called "the nation's worst nightmare."

NBC26's Alex Hagan talks with both sides and will have their reaction to the new law tonight on NBC26 Live at 5:00 & 6:00.
