MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – The Connecticut House passed tough new gun legislation that the governor is expected to sign. A draft of the measure outlines a plan to add more than 100 types of guns to the state's list of banned assault weapons.

The bill would also limit the capacity of magazines and require background checks even at gun shows.

Connecticut now becomes the third state to pass strict gun legislation after the deadly December shooting rampage at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
