Governor Deval Patrick signs a bill intended to reduce gun violence.

Governor Deval Patrick on Wednesday signed into law an overhaul of Massachusetts state gun laws, adding the state to a national database for background checks and allowing police chiefs to go to court to keep rifles and shotguns out of the hands of people they deem dangerous.

The measure was one of the most hotly debated of the recently concluded state legislative session, as lawmakers went back and forth over how much power to give law enforcement officials in denying access to such weapons. http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2014/08...story.html
