Patrick renewing push for tougher Mass. gun laws

Governor Deval Patrick and other gun control advocates are renewing their push for tougher gun laws in Massachusetts in the aftermath of the massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.

Patrick said Monday that he urged House and Senate leaders to act on legislation that he previously introduced, which would, among other changes, forbid buyers from purchasing more than one gun a month. The bill has languished in the Legislature for at least two years.
