New York legislators had twenty-minutes to read the SAFE Act before they voted on it. What’s the bet they didn’t? Flash forward to today, when Connecticut legislators are due to vote on their very own gun ban bill. The Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety released a summary of the bill yesterday. The 92-page bill dropped this morning. Click here to read the Bill 1160. A few details . . .
All transfers of all guns must go through an FFL ($25) and be registered with the state ($35 eligibility fee every five years).
CT residents need an “ammunition certificate” to buy same ($35 every five years).
Lever action guns are exempt from the 10-round mag limit.
Confiscated firearms will be sold at public auction.
Prohibited “assault rifles” on pages 39 and 40
Armor piercing ammo defined on page 54.
Cops are exempt from everything, obviously.
Anyway, this is bound to be another dark day in the annals of civilian disarmament. Shame on Connecticut legislators for violating their oath of office. Now, who wants Colt, Mossberg, et al.?
