Ban assault weapons. It's a call that's been trumpeted on the airwaves, in protests and in some TV ads. But now it's coming from a high-profile governor, signaling what could be a major move in the renewed push for tighter gun laws after the Connecticut elementary school shooting last month--a massacre that capped a year marked by other high-profile shootings.
