    CT: Is It Legal? Who Knows?

    Posted by Stag Arms on ar15.com...

    We were recently informed that the state police and state attorneys will no longer be confirming if a particular firearm configuration is legal under Connecticut's new gun control law.

    Essentially manufacturers can read the law, have our lawyers read the law, manufacture a configuration we believe is legal, and only after we start selling them will the state police and state attorneys review the product. We have no way to determine what they will do if it ends up not being legal under their interpretation of the law, if there will just be a recall or if people will be going to jail for having an "assault weapon".
    - So after passing one of the most restrictive "assault weapon" bans in the country, the State of CT will not try to interpret their newly passed laws. Seems like they are just waiting to arrest someone and confiscate their firearms.

    Slick way to stop manufacturers shipping to dealers in the state...stupid as it opens up a whole new speed lane for the underground railroad.

    So when do all the gun manufacturers in CT pack up the U Hauls and tell CT politicians to stick it?

    When do they (and the ammo makers) tell CT agencies to buy elsewhere? "Sorry, no guns or ammo for you."

    So... Why do you live in a State that has zero understanding of the concept of Freedom? Move!

    - PTR has already announced that they are leaving the state. Stag is in talks with several states right now. No one knows what Mossberg and Colt will do.

    - Unfortunately, I have a very good job in the Finance industry and all of the major corporations have a major presence in Hartford. I'm also a believer in fighting by educating others and being active in pro-2A movements. I donated to the pending lawsuit war chest and plan on doing more. IMO, leaving only solves the issue for me. It doesn't help the pro-2A movement by fleeing to another state. If history is any indication, no state is safe from Progressives. They tend to ruin the state they live in and then go on to the next state. If you want evidence of this, simply look at Colorado and southern New Hampshire.

    In regards to CT, I'd like to see more of this and more names on the list:

    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. South Carolina economic developers know they have a formidable opponent in their quest to lure Connecticut firearms manufacturers to the state.

    The gunfight is shaping up to pit South Carolina against the state of Texas, ranked at least equal with South Carolina on residents' fervor to uphold the Second Amendment and several notches ahead on incentives to recruit new employers. The targets, firearms manufacturers PTR Industries and Stag Arms, are both in the sights of the two states.

    Colt is in an interesting position. Their skilled labor force is mostly UAW, who always lend strong support to the party which rules CT - but that didn't faze Malloy and his back-room buddies. Colt even paid for buses to take workers to Hartford to let the General Assembly know the proposed laws would put a lot of union jobs at risk, but to no avail. I have to wonder how those workers will vote in the next election.

    I was born & raised in a coastal town in Conn. One of the most beautiful (Rockwell-like) places one can live if you can afford it. $$$

    (THAT) is about all I have to say positive about Conn compared to where I live now.
    Even in the 70's and 80's, Conn was already on the fast track to liberalism; esp in the school systems.

    Well you see, it's quite simple really.

    You must pass a law to find out what's in it...

    You must build a firearm to find out if it's illegal... (and believe me, whatever you build will be illegal).

    Our representative bodies need "delousing." From the local level all the way to the POTUS. 2014 cannot come quick enough.

    On a related note, Rick Perry leaves to visit NY and CT next week. Among others, he is scheduled to meet with the CEO of Colt.

    The irony of this part;
    The gunfight is shaping up to pit South Carolina against the state of Texas, ranked at least equal with South Carolina on residents' fervor to uphold the Second Amendment and several notches ahead on incentives to recruit new employers. The targets, firearms manufacturers PTR Industries and Stag Arms, are both in the sights of the two states.
    When neither TX or SC do not have open carry.

    But compared to the territory of CT (it can't be called a state if it ignores the United States Constitution)

    - If you want some real irony, CT allows open carry with a pistol permit.

    XD40SCiinNC, what has open carry got to do with anything? Both states seem to be very pro-gun. An open carry bill is in the Texas legislature right now.

    OC is another aspect of the 2A right. Claiming to be very pro gun, while blocking one aspect is kind of 2 faced IMO. Are TX and SC more pro gun than CT, MA, IL, NY? Yes they are. But the restriction of carry to just 1 method, with the states approval is not really that "pro gun".

    It IS kind of ironic that there seems to be a need for a bill to "legalize" a Constitutionally guaranteed right!
