The state Senate is sending a bill that bans bump stocks and other devices that increase the firing rate of guns to Governor Malloy's desk.
The Senate voted 26 to ten to approve the bill last night, and Governor Dan Malloy is pledging to sign it in the coming days.
Malloy says there is no legitimate reason for anyone to own a device that can fire 90 bullets in ten seconds.
He says the vote shows that state government is listening to the overwhelming, collective voice of the people on this issue.
