UPDATE: (WTNH) -- The Connecticut general assembly's Task Force on Gun Violence released several recommendations to combat gun violence Tuesday, nearly three months after the Newtown school shooting.
 
News 8's Jamie Muro reports the recommendations from Democrats include:
 •Expand the definition of assault weapon
 •Ban large magazines
 •Require permit for shotguns
 •Universal background check
 •Establish a deadly weapon offender registry
 •Strengthen laws on gun tracking
 •Prohibit individuals buying more than 1 pistol within 30 days
 •Require permits for gun shows
 •Increase fee to carry pistol or revolver
 •Ban armor piercing bullets
 •No guns in daycare facilities
 •No guns in houses of worship
 
Republicans differ Democrats on the magazines and assault style guns.
 
The recommendations go to the leadership in the general assembly, which will then make proposals and bring items to floor for more debate and votes.
 
Jamie will have more details on the proposals later in the day, and on News 8 starting at 5 p.m.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A bipartisan, legislative working group is planning to finalize its recommendations for law changes addressing gun violence.
 
Lawmakers were scheduled to meet Tuesday at the Legislative Office Building to discuss which proposals to forward to legislative leaders, who are crafting a final package of changes in response to the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
 
Last week, Senate President Donald Williams Jr. called on members of the Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children's Safety to wrap up their work. Besides gun violence, working groups are offering recommendations on mental health care and school security.
 
Williams wants legislative leaders to begin their negotiations Tuesday afternoon. He has also called for the full General Assembly to vote on a final package by March 13.
