The Second Amendment, labeling of genetically modified food, and two tech stories drew the most readers this year, according’s Google Analytics report.

The gun legislation passed by the General Assembly following the Dec. 14, 2012, shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School received the most attention this year on the site. Followed by two CTTechJunkie stories about Apple’s iPhone 5 and a story about Roku, a new way in which people are choosing to watch television. Stories about how the legislature became the first in the nation to pass a law requiring the labeling of genetically modified foods helped round out the list. Also, two editorials about how the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s money is being used in Hartford schools, and how a small town in northwestern Connecticut went broke, made the top 12.

Below is the list of 12 news stories and editorials that drew the most readers in 2013:

Hi Jim in Mfg,
I don’t know the answer, but will try and get you one. The story ran back in March so presumably who ever took it is gone from state service already. It was less than 100 it was available to. I’ll ask, but can’t promise anything.
