    2 Connecticut lawmakers offer firearms legislation

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Two Democratic state lawmakers are offering the first of package of proposed legislation in the wake of the deadly mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

    State Sen. Beth Bye of West Hartford and Rep. Robert Godfrey of Danbury released a series of proposals on Thursday that attempt to limit access in Connecticut to high-capacity magazines, assault weapons and ammunition.

    The ideas will be packaged in one bill and offered in January when the General Assembly convenes.

    The list includes prohibiting the sale and possession of any rifle, shotgun or pistol magazine that has a capacity of more than 10 rounds of ammunition, instituting a 50 percent sales tax on the sale of ammunition and firearms magazines, requiring a permit to purchase ammunition, and banning online ammo purchases.

    And the stupid begins. I knew the Chicago and Crook county politicians were setting a dangerous precedent with their 5 cent/bullet tax proposal even though it didn't go through. The idea had been planted. Not to mention this has NOTHING to do with last week's shooting! Did I miss the part where he bought his own ammo? I figured he STOLE it when he killed his mother and stole her guns. How would permits and taxes have prevented that??

    I know there is a certain inertia to moving, but there is nothing that says anybody has to stay in CT. If the government gets onerous, let them govern a wasteland.

    "And a bill to create the first-in-the-nation statewide gun registry also failed in 2011. That proposal would have created a database of gun owners modeled after the sex-offender registry."

    This is what would scare me the most and I hope that it fails again and again.

    What they fail to realize is that the problem with "Stopping" a shooting like the Newtown shooting is that statistically it didn't happen. Given the numbers involved, population, number and rarity of incidents etc. Its already been 99.999% prevented. You won't EVER achieve 100% and if you could stop 99.999% of other serious crimes it would be an amazing accomplishment. It's nothing more than the anti gun establishment using the tragedy to push their agenda.
