The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear a challenge to Connecticut’s ban on semi-automatic rifles commonly called assault weapons, acting a little over week after the mass shooting in Orlando was carried with such a firearm.

Gov. Dan Malloy signed the law in April 2013. Four months earlier, a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School killed 20 children and six teachers. The law expanded an existing ban by outlawing dozens of rifle models than can hold high-capacity ammunition magazines or clips.
