Connecticut Lawmakers Considering Broad Attack on Your Gun Rights!

Friday, February 2, 2007

 

We Need Your Help!

Lawmakers in Hartford have already started to consider legislation that will have dramatic consequences for Connecticut’s law-abiding gun owners.  The anti-gun crowd has doubled their efforts to pass some of 2006’s failed proposals and new 2007 anti-gun proposals.

 

The Judiciary and Public Safety and Security Committees need to hear from you!

 

The Judiciary Committee can be reached at (860) 240-0530 and the

Public Safety and Security Committee can be reached at (860) 240-0570.

 

These committees have been assigned many anti-gun proposals, to include the recurring and defeated “lost and stolen firearms,” the proven a failure “ballistic fingerprinting” program (also known as Ballistic Registration), one gun-a-month, and permit to purchase ammunition proposals.

 

If you have not contacted your legislators, please do so TODAY!

 

The Public Safety and Security Committee HAS SCHEDULED A PUBLIC HEARING on all the proposals listed below for Tuesday, February 6 at 11 am in the Legislative Office Building, Room 2E.  Please keep checking your email for updates and changes on this crucial hearing!

 

In the meantime, start calling members of the Public Safety and Security Committee today!  Members of the Public Safety and Security Committee can be reached at (860) 240-0570 or at the following link:  http://www.cga.ct.gov/asp/menu/MemberList.asp?comm_code=PS&doc_type=, and urge them to “oppose” any anti-gun proposals!
