Legislation Subjects Connecticut Gun Owners to Criminal Investigations!

Friday, April 14, 2006

 

Please Contact Public Safety and Security Committee, Today!

As we have been reporting, the anti-gun crowd has ratcheted up the pressure on lawmakers to pass last year’s doomed proposal to make it a crime to fail to report the loss or theft of a firearm within 72 hours from when you “knew or should have known” of the theft.

This year’s version is extremely dangerous for law abiding gun owners and must be stopped!

 

HB 5818 now includes language that would subject gun owners to criminal investigation and jeopardy of prosecution even if they report the theft because a court will now be given the ability to decide whether the firearm was stored in such a manner that provided “substantial and unjustifiable risk” that it would be stolen.  Even worse, if the police recover the firearm before the gun owner has discovered it missing and made the report, it will be considered automatic evidence of guilt of violation of this proposed law, as well as guilt of an illegal transfer. Conviction of the “illegal transfer,” which is a felony, would permanently end your right to own a firearm! 

 

In response to the large number of phone calls coming in from gun owners, Connecticut Against Gun Violence has put out desperate pleas to the anti-gun crowd asking them to write, e-mail and call lawmakers in an effort to drown out your voice! 

Members of the Public Safety and Security Committee could vote this bill on as early as Tuesday, April 18. 

If you have not contacted your legislators yet, we ask you to do it TODAY! 
Ask them to OPPOSE HB 5818. 
If you have already contacted your legislators,
be sure to encourage fellow gun owners and sportsmen to do the same!

The general phone number for the House of Representatives is (860) 240-0400. 

Also, those whose lawmakers are members of the Public Safety and Security Committee must contact them to remind them that they must attend the Public Safety Committee meeting on Tuesday to vote “NO” on HB 5818!   The Public Safety and Security Committee can be reached at (860) 240-0570.  If you need help identifying your legislators and members of the committee please visit cga.ct.gov/
