Mass., Senate to discuss gun control bill

Posted:
BOSTON, Mass., - Gun control is expected to be the primary target at the Massachusetts State House.

Supporters and opponents of tighter measures will be converging on the steps as house leaders discuss wide-ranging legislation on Tuesday.

The new bill would give local police chiefs the ability to deny a license for rifles or shotguns based on suitability standards, extend federal restrictions for firearm acquisition to the state level, and require background checks for all private gun sales.
