HB 6657 been referred to the Public Safety Committee and could be considered as early as next week. This legislation seeks to make criminals out of crime victims by imposing a misdemeanor charge for the failure to report a stolen firearm. The measure would also further diminish the ability of licensed firearm dealers to hold gun shows, creates new restrictions on who may sell firearms, and allows cities to shut down legal gun stores.
After years of working to erode the rights of Connecticut’s law-abiding gun owners, "Connecticut Against Gun Violence" is surprised to find themselves in the position of actually having to fight to get what they want, so they are pulling out all the stops. Your phone calls to lawmakers have been making a difference, so keep it up! Please contact your State Representatives today and urge them to oppose HB 6657.
