    CT: Bipartisan Task Force testimony

    This may be your only chance to voice your opinion about the upcoming legislation in CT. The hearing is next Monday. If you can make it in person, fantastic. If not, please take a minute and submit an email testimonial to asaferconnecticut@cga.ct.gov

    Just some of the nonsense we're up against...
    Connecticut Legislators Eye Long List of Gun-Control Measures; Public Hearing Set for Monday, Jan. 28

    • To require firearm owners to maintain liability insurance
    • Establish a sales tax on the sale of ammunition at a rate of 50 percent and require all ammunition to be purchased in person.
    • An outright ban on ALL modern sporting rifles classifying them as "Assault Weapons."
    • Restricting your ability to defend yourself and family by arbitrarily restricting the magazine size to 10 rounds.
    • Confiscating ALL magazines holding more than 10 rounds, pistols included.
    • Statewide gun registration for ALL firearms; knowing full well criminals won't ever register their guns.
    • Re-registration every 2 years with ever increasing fees.
    • Requires permit for any rifle with a pistol grip.
    • Limiting how much ammunition you can purchase AND possess.
    • Registration of all ammunition purchases.
    • Bans internet sales of ammo in Connecticut.
    • Mandatory gun storage laws, like the one the U.S. Supreme Court struck down in the Heller decision.

    Holy crap!

    Much stupid there. The permit for rifles with a pistol grip stands out as particularly inane to me.

    Fancy name that..."Gun Violence Prevention Working Group" but the people who have firearms for sport and defense are not violent...people who are won't be affected. We know this, they probably do too but don't care. They want to be famous and have their name published. With the headline "Senator signs bill to reduce gun violence".

    Sounds great doesn't it?

    Laws are restrictive but sometimes necessary to maintain a civil society. Rights are nonrestrictive but are always necessary to maintain a free society.

    I emailed them a copy of the report from Unv of Chicago. Maybe they will read it and be sheep.
