Sunday Hunting Legislation Needs Your Help in Connecticut!

Friday, February 24, 2006

 

Sunday hunting legislation, supported by the “Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen,” the “National Shooting Sports Foundation” and NRA, was “raised” by the Connecticut General Assembly’s Environment Committee this week in Hartford.  This means the committee has agreed to hold hearings on the concept, which would allow the Department of Environmental Conservation to designate areas where hunting on Sunday on private property may be permitted in order to control overpopulation of species.  The hearing could be held as early as next week, so it is critical that you contact your lawmakers and urge them to make this legislation a priority. 

 

Also since session began a few weeks ago, the Public Safety and Security Committee and the Judiciary Committee have been “raising” various firearm-related proposals, including last year’s lost or stolen firearm reporting requirement, which now contains a long gun registration scheme.  New this year is a bill to ban guns by color.  The “colored handgun” ban bill would prohibit the sale, transfer, and possession of any handgun that is “coated with a color other than chrome, military camel, black, gray or nickel.”  Not satisfied by caliber or capacity restrictions, the anti-gun crowd now wants to outlaw guns by color.  Please contact your legislators and ask them to oppose this senseless restriction! 

 

In addition, please plan on attending what promises to be one of the largest and most successful “Friends of NRA” events in the country on March 24, 2006, in Southington.  Limited edition firearms, knives, art prints, and other collectibles will be offered for sale, at auction, or given away in special drawings.  50% of the net proceeds from the event will go to qualified projects in Connecticut, with the remaining 50% benefiting national programs.  The event will take place at the beautiful Aqua Turf Restaurant on Mulberry St., in Southington.  It will start at 6:00 p.m. and will feature a delicious meal prepared by the Aqua Turf.  For tickets, directions, or more information, please call Chairman Ray Hanley at (203) 264-4899.
