Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  The last major round of provisions in Senate Bill 1160 (now Public Act 13-3), passed in the Connecticut General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Dan Malloy (D) last year, take effect on Tuesday, April 1.

EFFECTIVE ON APRIL 1, 2014:

  • Individuals must apply for a “long gun eligibility certificate” through the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (“DESPP”) to purchase any rifle or shotgun.  You are exempt from this requirement if you have a Connecticut permit to carry a pistol or revolver; a pistol or revolver retail sales permit; or a pistol or revolver eligibility certificate.
    • The fee (tax) for this certificate is $35 and must be renewed every five years.
    • You must complete a DESPP-approved firearms training course.
    • You must submit fingerprints with your application and a fee of $50 for state fingerprints and $16.50 for federal fingerprints.
    • The DESPP commissioner will have 60 days after the receipt of your application to issue the “long gun eligibility certificate,” which can then be presented to a licensed firearms dealer to purchase a long gun.

Your NRA is working to reverse this dangerous law which has no effect on criminal access or misuse of firearms, but we need your help!  To get involved and volunteer your efforts against these misguided efforts, please click here.

    1. These laws are contrary to ALL of the constitution as a “permitted” right is NO right at all but a privilege that CAN be taken.

    2. the federal court judges are worthless as tits on a bore hog – they do not have the balls to charge these legislators with treason to the Constitution they swore a oath to uphold
