Groton, CT – -( Two weeks ago Connecticut’s Anti-Gun Governor Dan Malloy’s Sandy Hook Advisory Commission met to discuss their recommendations to be published soon in their final report. You can read about that here.

Today they met again, to go over some final details. Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL) Executive Board member Ray Bevis sat through the whole thing and took notes, so the rest of us wouldn’t have to. If you would like to watch a recording of the 1 hour 20 minute meeting, you can do so here.

Keep in mind, while some of their recommendations are already in place here in CT, the commission hopes to see these freedom shredding recommendations spread nationwide.

Here are Ray’s notes:

• The commission final report will be around 100 pages.

• There will be a dedication to the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting, and to victims of gun violence statewide. Nancy Lanza is specifically not included.

• A section of the report is going to be a summary of events. This section will be a very graphic description of the SHES shooting. Members of the commission feel it’s necessary to rehash the trauma of the day, to make sure the reader feels upset and angry. They said this is necessarily powerful and needed for their gun recommendations.

• They have scheduled the final action meeting for February 13 2015 Friday at 9:30am. This will most likely be their last meeting before they present the report to Malloy.

As far as I could tell this will be their gun related recommendations:

• Gun seizures with ex parte temporary restraining orders.

• Gun seizures with gun violence restraining orders.

• Their verbiage is a combination from the California Bill 1014, CT proposed bill SB56, and recommendations from Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

• Mandatory background checks on the sale for transfers and firearms, including long guns, private sales and sales at gun shows.

• Requiring registration, including a certificate of registration, for any firearm. This certificate of registration should be issued subsequent to the completion of a background check and separate and distinct from a permit to carry.

• Require the renewal of firearms permits on a regular basis. This renewal process should include a test of Firearms handling capacity as well as understanding of applicable laws and regulations.

• Ban the sale, possession or use of any magazine or ammunition feeding device in excess of 10 rounds except for military and police use.

• Ban the possession or sale of all armor-piercing bullets regardless of caliber. A first-time offense should be classified as a class D felony.

• Allow the purchase of ammunition for registered Firearms only.

• Evaluate the best practices for the regulation or prohibition of the sale and purchase of ammunition via the Internet.

• Evaluate the effectiveness of federal law in limiting the purchase of firearms via the Internet for those who have passed the appropriate background screening.

• Limit the amount of ammunition that may be purchased at any given time.

• Prohibit the possession, sale or transfer of any firearm capable of firing more than 10 rounds without reloading. This would extend to military style Firearms as well as handguns. Law-enforcement and military would be exempt.

• Require that trigger locks be provided at time of sale or transfer of any firearm.

• Require that the state develop an update a best practices manual and require that all firearms in the home be stored in a locked container and adhere to these best practices; with current minimum standards featuring a temper resistant mechanical lock or other safety including biometrics device when they are not under the owners direct control or supervision. The owner should always be directly responsible for securing any key used to gain access to the lock container.

• Require non-residents seeking to purchase a firearm or ammunition in the State of Connecticut to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility and conform to all other regulations applicable to Connecticut residents.

• Require gun clubs to report any negligent or reckless behavior with a firearm, or illegal possession of any firearm or magazine, to the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, Commissioner of Public Safety, and local law enforcement.

• Require promoters of gun shows to receive a permit from the Chief of Police or Chief Elected Official as well as provide notice to the Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.

About the CCDL: The Connecticut Citizens Defense League was formed in February 2009 by a small group of concerned citizens as a non-partisan organization to advocate for second amendment rights in the state of Connecticut. Since their founding, the group has grown to more than 14,000 members. Thanks to this large supportive base across the state the CCDL has become a fixture of the capitol, and well recognized by committees that oversee firearms related bills.

CCDL is also actively involved at the state Board of Firearms Permit Examiners. As the go-to organization in the state they are consulted with regularly by lawmakers who have questions and concerns about pending legislation or existing laws. For more information regarding CCDL, please visit

The best response to this level of tyranny is to follow in the footsteps of our patriotic brethren from Washington State. They rose up in defiance of the legislation (I-594) that violated their Constitutional rights – showed up armed and engaged in firearms commerce on the grounds of the State Legislature in Olympia. The Local and State law enforcement communities refused to intervene. The Connecticut State Police have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution, from all threats foreign and domestic, and will not take action against our otherwise law-abiding citizenry. It’s up to us to protect the future rights… Read more »


I once saw a black person on a corner selling crack to children. I think he was in a gang.

*puts on anti -gun group mentality helmet*

Solution: something must be done to protect the children.
all black people need to have their rights and freedoms seriously reduced in an effort to protect children from crack.

(replace “black people” with “legal gun owners”)


This is what happens when you keep putting demoncrats in office, The only thing they want to do is disarm the people, Benjamin Franklin had something to say about that, ” Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.” We are seeing this happen all over the place at this time, People are giving up their liberty for a very small amount of security and they are going to lose everything. The current administration that we have is working on taking all of our liberties and will show… Read more »


If there are actually any lawabidding firearms owners left that want to stay in that fu*ked up,little pissant state called CT,enjoy yourself. Just dont try and enjoy your firearms at the same time. This is the type of tyranny that our founding fathers were talking about when the 2A was realized. Its very close to the point that the only way to handle this is through an armed revolt. Thats the only thing these son of a bitches will understand,and the only thing that will restore your 2A freedoms.
