FAIRFIELD - Gun owners in Connecticut say they're left with many questions following the passage of the state's new gun laws earlier today.

Fairfield police say they've already started getting phone calls, asking what exactly the new laws mean for gun owners, especially when it comes to registering firearms. Deputy Chief Chris Lyddy says it will take some time to read through all 136 pages of the legislation.

"A lot of effort, time and energy went into this legislation," says Lyddy. "Now we will have a part to play."

The laws place a state ban on assault weapons and require background checks for all firearm purchases.
