A commission reviewing the deadly Newtown school shooting for Connecticut's governor is recommending universal background checks for all gun sales and transfers, the registration of all firearms, and bans on high-capacity magazines and possession or sale of guns capable of firing more than 10 rounds of ammunition without reloading.

The panel also believes Connecticut officials should consider requiring all K-12 classrooms to be equipped with doors that can be locked from the inside and hardware that's capable of implementing a full perimeter lockdown.
