Connecticut's state legislature passed the measures on 4 April 2013, which include America's first registry of gun offenders. Approximately, 20 young children were shot dead at school in December 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut. The state assembly approved the legislation by 105 to 44 after a series of debates.Besides, Maryland's House of Delegates also passed a bill requiring fingerprints for gun buyers.

However, in the US Congress, efforts to pass firearms restrictions are in the process. In addition to a gun offender registry, the restrictions introduce background checks on all firearms buyers and a ban on new magazines holding more than 10 rounds.
