Connecticut –-(Ammoland.com)- In response to the tragic events that took place in Sandy Hook last December, Connecticut legislative leaders from both parties came together to form the Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety.

The 50 member super-committee was split into three separate working groups, each tasked with developing recommendations aimed at reducing gun violence, enhancing school safety and increasing access to mental health care in Connecticut.

After a number of public forums, informative discussions with professionals and hearing from numerous advocacy groups, the task force has come forth with the following draconian gun control proposals  guaranteeing that Connecticut will soon join New York in gutting the Second Amendment for state citizens.

Recommended Law Changes include:

  • Universal Background Checks.
  • Significantly Expanding The Connecticut Assault Weapons Ban.
  • Immediately bans the sale or purchase of large capacity magazines, and imposes extremely stringent restrictions on the use of those currently possessed.
    • Immediate ban on sale, purchase or importation of large capacity magazines.
    • Large Capacity Magazines that are currently possessed must be registered with DESPP by January 1, 2014 to remain legal,and even when registered will be subject to extremely strict usage limitations.
    • Requires new state issued eligibility certificates for the purchase of any rifle, shotgun or ammunition.
  • Expands the scope of Connecticut’s firearms safe storage law.
  • The bill establishes the offense of illegal possession of ammunition, so that an individual who is ineligible to possess a firearm will also now be ineligible to possess any ammunition.
  • The bill requires applicants for a temporary permit to carry a pistol or revolver to apply only in their town of residence (as opposed to also where they work), and further limits such applications to only one per twelvemonths.
  • The bill establishes a new age limit for the purchase of centerfire semi-automatic rifles (other than bannedassault weapons). Under the bill an individual will have to be at least 21 to purchase such a rifle, as opposedto the current federal age limit of 18.
  • The bill bans the sale of armor piercing ammunition, and makes it a class D felony to carry a firearm loadedwith any such ammunition.
  • The bill amends the Earned Risk Reduction Program to ensure that violent felons, including those whocommitted crimes with firearms, serve at least eighty-five percent of their original sentences.

I always wonder when states or cities or counties decide to “crack down” on what I consider to be relatively minor indiscretions, do they have the money or space in jail/prison for all the convicts under this law? I doubt it. I also noticed that I didn’t find anyplace to see the new list of banned guns. Did anybody else try to get the list? I do NOT live in CT (never will go there either) so maybe the list won’t affect me. However these things are contagious, and could spread any and everywhere. What I fear is that I… Read more »

CT’s newest nickname, “The Constipation State” because our politicians are full of it. I hope all the firearms manuf’s AND defense industry types beging moving out as soon as this draconian legislation is passed.


TO D.MURPHY. You forgot, COMMIE, just like the white house.

D. Murphy

The mask is off, you finally see democrats for what they truly are…intolorant, controlling, conformist/statists.


I am certain that the majority of the citizens of Connecticut do not approve of this legislation. I do not give “implied consent” to any politician.
That is how they get legislation passed that do not follow the approval of the majority. Through “implied consent” because they were elected it is assumed that they have your implied consent to whatever they do.

Apparently the legislatures in Connecticut don’t understand these words…SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Maybe someone needs to take a 2×4 to their faces out behind a woodshed somewhere. And see if they outlaw 2×4’s!

D. Murphy

If you like being broke, taxed to death, legistalted into being a criminal and having your rights taken away and then having to go to government with your hat in hand to ask “by your leave sir,” for permission to exercise what used to be a right, just keep voting democratic!


Conn.,NY,CA,CO, etc. You always get what you vote for. Vote for gun grabbers and you get you guns yanked.


I didn’t see in the Bill where Murder is illegal? Oh that’s right, it already is, but bad people keep right on murdering good people. Silly me.
