    Lawmakers are holding hearings today on bills that would shape gun control legislation in the state.

    Gun control advocates plan today to deliver letters to the legislative leaders crafting a bipartisan bill that addresses the Newtown school shooting.

    The letters come from Newtown victims, survivors, clergy and other groups who support a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines and other gun control measures, according to a news release from Newtown Action Alliance.

    The letters ask for a vote on a strong and comprehensive gun safety package.

    A news conference is planned for 11 a.m. at the state Capitol.
