HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Some big decisions on guns coming up this week and Connecticut is right at the center of them.
First stop, a court in Bridgeport will be hearing the case of the Newtown families versus Bushmaster. That court is to decide whether or not they can sue the gun maker for what happened in Sandy Hook.
Later in the day on Capitol Hill, a vote on a bill led by Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal on whether to deny guns to people on the terrorist watch list.
Also, the United States Supreme Court is likely to either except reject or table the appeal from the Connecticut Civilian Defense League challenging Connecticut’s gun laws, saying after Sandy Hook lawmakers overstepped their bounds.
Senator Murphy says no matter what happens he will keep pushing forward.
“If Monday doesn’t work out, then we will sit down and plan out the next fight, but I can’t come back to Connecticut and look into the eyes of the families from Sandy Hook if I’m not doing everything I can in my soul to try and fight for this issue,” said Murphy.
Murphy also let a 15 hour filibuster on Capitol Hill earlier this week to draw attention to the bill on the terrorist watch list.
