It took four months following the Newtown school shooting, but this afternoon Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy signed sweeping gun restrictions into law.

This new law restricts sales of high-capacity ammunition clips that a crazed gunman used to massacre 26 people in a few minutes during a December attack on that school.

The law requires background checks for all gun purchases, it expands the number of guns covered by the states' assault-weapons ban and it also establishes a $15 million fund to help schools improve security infrastructure.
