Committee Changes Language of Connecticut One-Gun-A-Month Initiative!

Friday, March 9, 2007


Please Continue to Call Your State Senator!


The proposed one-gun-a-month legislation, Senate Bill 938, sponsored by State Senators Martin Looney (D-11) and Toni Harp (D-10), was changed to a “study” of the issue and is now headed to the Senate for debate. 


The Public Safety and Security committee voted 12 to 11 to change the language of the bill to: “AN ACT CONCERNING A STUDY OF LIMITING THE PURCHASE OF HANDGUNS TO ONE PER MONTH”. 


If the Senate approves this change of language a vote on the issue of one-gun-a-month will be put off until next session when the “study” data is available.

While this seems like a victory, the fight is far from over!  Please continue to call your State Senators and Representatives at (860)-240-0100 and remind them that the one-gun-a-month concept does not work.

One-gun-a-month has not worked in the few states where adopted and South Carolina recently repealed its one-gun-a-month law.

Remember legislation is never really “dead” until the legislative session is over.  Please continue to call your State Senator and urge him or her to oppose any assault on our right to keep and bear arms!
