CT Law Requiring ‘Ammunition Certificate’ to Purchase Ammunition & Magazines Now in Effect

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  One important provision of Senate Bill 1160, passed in the Connecticut General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Dan Malloy (D), takes effect on Tuesday, October 1.

This new misguided law requires individuals over the age of 18 to obtain an “ammunition certificate” to purchase ammunition and magazines.  The fee (tax) for this certificate is $35.  Each applicant will undergo a criminal background investigation in order to be issued this certificate.  Your “ammunition certificate” must be renewed every five years.

However, if you already hold a valid state Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers or a newly created “long gun eligibility certificate,” you are exempt from this additional requirement to obtain a separate “ammunition and magazine certificate.

Click here to view the application for an “ammunition certificate.”

This requirement is one of many onerous provisions of this law that penalizes responsible gun owners and sportsmen in Connecticut.  Your NRA is doing everything in its power to reverse this dangerous law which has no effect on criminals and only impacts law-abiding citizens.

    1. Citizens of Connecticut,

      Fortunately, you don’t live all that far from a few FREE states. I would suggest you take a day trip to Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine to make your purchases. After all fall is a beautiful time for a nice drive in the Northeast.

      I agree with TSgt B on this one. It’s peak season now, and we’re enjoying our freedoms. I’m off to the range this weekend to sight-in in anticipation of hunting season. I’ll stop by the LGS to pick up some ammmo.

    3. CONSTITUION ANYONE?

      ** THIS IS CLEARLY A ‘TAX’ TO REGULATE & CONTROL.

      PLZ PILE THE SUITS ON – and ‘KEEP’ ‘EM COMING!

    4. The certificate will not stop anyone from using ammo to hurt other citizens.

      The recent mass shooting are proof of that.

    5. Another state, Perverted by the liberal INFECTION.

    6. Heard that pistol-grip shotguns are illegal as well——what can one expect from a democrat-controlled legislature. Thank GOD I moved to Arizona—land of the free and home of the brave.

    7. We can be sure the criminals will follow this law.

    8. Just sent half a case of .45ACP to a friend in CT. He had to scan and email his carry permit and DL to the shipper. He received it this morning — so far no SWAT Teams menacing…still, a PITA and another law-abiding citizen ‘hoop’ to jump through. Sigh.

    9. Those of us who have been shooting and hunting for 50 or 60 years, find it disconcerting that our government has put regulation and control on what we need to hunt or shoot, thereby taking away the sport we enjoy. I guess it’s just too hard to tackle the real problem. Time will tell that this sneaky move does more to alienate many folks and hurt the local economy than it does to stop the mentally disturbed from becoming violent.
