Connecticut: Gun Control Bills Pass Committee

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- The Connecticut state Joint Judiciary Committee has voted to pass a number of gun control bills.  They will now go to their respective chambers for further consideration.  Please contact your state Senator and Representative and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 60 and House Bills 5345, 5725, and 7223.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator and Representative.

Senate Bill 60 would allow law enforcement officers to demand that Connecticut handgun permit holders present their permit if the officer had reason to believe they were carrying a handgun.  Current law already allows police officers to request proof of a permit, but only when they have a “reasonable suspicion” that a crime is being committed, supported by articulable facts that criminal activity is occurring.

House Bill 5345 would require any adult with a minor present in their residence to make their firearms unavailable for self-defense.  Gun safety and storage is a matter of personal responsibility and every person’s situation is different.  It is unreasonable to impose a one-size-fits-all government solution.  Such poorly thought out schemes are without any consideration for personal circumstances.

House Bill 5725 would essentially end the centuries old practice of manufacturing firearms for personal use by imposing requirements that far exceed those in federal law.  Criminals acquire the vast majority of their firearms by illegal means such as theft, straw purchase, or on the black market.  Such a law would only affect hobbyists who like to design, assemble, or manufacture their own firearms.

House Bill 7223 would require handguns to be stored in a locked safe whenever in an unattended vehicle.  Such an unreasonable requirement would require gun owners to fit their vehicles with a locking safe separate from any carrying cases they already use to transport handguns.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and Representative and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 60 and House Bills 5345, 5725, and 7223.

    I live in Connecticut and those politicians have gone off the deep end and they can’t swim. The problem is they want to take me with them. Every law they’re introducing or have been made into law already does nothing but hinder the law abiding citizens. A criminal is going to commit a crime no matter what the laws are. But it infringes on my rights. Not one of those laws that have been passed would have stopped any one of the terrible crimes committed in Connecticut, not one! 1) Connecticut has very strict gun laws. They don’t allow gun… Read more »

    You’ve gotta vote with your feet. We left last year and I lived in CT for over 40 years. Down here in MS? The 2A IS your gun permit. Such a breath of fresh air over Corrupticut. I’ll never go back and they’ve gotten their last dime out of me. I urge all Nutmeggers to do the same. Let the Communists, illegals and criminals have it.

    This one is a real doozy:

    House Bill 7223 would require handguns to be stored in a locked safe whenever in an unattended vehicle. Such an unreasonable requirement would require gun owners to fit their vehicles with a locking safe separate from any carrying cases they already use to transport handguns.

    Most jurisdictions do not allow vehicles to have hidden, locked compartments, they claim they are illegal because drugs. So, if this new proposal passes, you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t

    THE SAFE WILL BE MARKED “FOR FIREARMS ONLY” SO AS NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE…

    If a firearm was stored in a locked glove compartment, the legal challenge in court, if ever necessary, is that a locked glovebox provides virtually identical protection and security.
    Furthermore, the firearm is hidden from view. Thus not drawing attention of potential thieves. A gunsafe or lockbox, on the otherhand is easily identifiable as containing a firearm, stands out attracting thieves, and can easily be carried away.
