    As usual K, very well articulated. I think we all pretty much agree with HG that the law proposed is an abomination. Our only point of disagreement concerns the meaning of the term "ex post facto."

    Someone said the proposal was trashed. Is this correct? Over, gone and bye bye?

    - From what I read on a few other forums, the Joint Committee on Judiciary has until April 15 to take action on these bills. I don't think it's gone yet.

    When it's Silly Season in Hartford, nothing is ever completely dead until the General Assembly adjourns. And even then, if you have a Lord Weicker in office, the GA can be reconvened for special topics.

    No one is safe when any of them are in session. That's true here, its true there, its true where you are, its true with every legislature. Forget term limits. If we want some stability and order in our lives we need to limit them all to one 60 day session every two years. Maybe let Congress meet 90 days once a year. That way they will have to focus on real issues, and quit wandering off into endless games of political gotchyas.

    I think this is the best post I've seen in a long time (in this category). Excellent idea; I completely agree.

    This argument is fact. While the criminals commit the crime, law abiding citizens are targeted to be labeled felons because of the newly proposed so called "large capacity magazine" ban. And as a result, we lose our rights and connecticut worker's lose jobs and bussinesses leave the state.
    John Doe goes to a package store and purchases 4 Quarts of Vodka. He gets drunk and drives his car/missile and kills a large group of people rallying at a political convention. Maybe our politician's should introduce a bill that will limit the amount of liquor one can purchase or better yet BAN certain bottle size’s sold in Connecticut. If you own or have in your possession any bottle of alcohol that is larger than a Pint you will be considered a felon.
    Where is all this going? Is this another step towards losing our second amendment rights? Our governor claims to help businesses but the reality is, he is hurting us and our fragile economy by allowing these frivolous proposals. This is Malloy's opportunity to step up to the plate and focus on the REAL issues that matter's. We need to fix the economy and create jobs to help generate revenue and bring back the American spirit. We cannot afford to drive out any more long standing historical American businesses.

    How timely. Why would a citizen possibly need more than 10 rounds in a magazine? After all, there were only six possible assailants.
