The next round of provisions from Senate Bill 1160 (now Public Act 13-3), passed by the Connecticut General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Dan Malloy (D), take effect on Wednesday, January 1, 2014.
EFFECTIVE ON JANUARY 1, 2014:
These requirements are only some of the many onerous and deeply flawed provisions that penalize responsible gun owners and sportsmen in Connecticut with the intention of turning law-abiding citizens into criminals. Unfortunately, it seems as though the misguided Connecticut legislature won’t stop until they have completely obliterated your rights. As we’ve seen in other states, such as in neighboring New York, these controversial registration provisions begin the slide down a slippery slope toward eventual confiscation. These are legitimate worries, and residents of the Constitution State should be wary. History shows that in instances where government officials promise no harm will come through their flawed registration schemes, the end result winds up being quite different. Gun registration enables gun confiscation, and criminals never register their firearms.
Your NRA is working to reverse this dangerous law which has no effect on criminal access or misuse of firearms, but we need your help! To get involved and volunteer your efforts against these misguided efforts, please click here.
