The Connecticut State Legislature’s Joint Committee on Judiciary has drafted a bill that would ban the sale of all handguns not equipped with so-called “micro-stamping" technology.
Senate Bill 353, sponsored by State Senator Martin M. Looney (D-11), has gone from a mere concept discussed by the committee, to an official bill that will likely be scheduled for a hearing soon.
Micro-stamping is an unproven technology that would require identifying information (such as the make, model, and serial number) of a firearm to be etched into the firing pin and breech face in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted on the cartridge case upon firing. The technology can easily be defeated with common household tools, has no public safety value, and adds substantially to the cost of the firearm.
This bill must be defeated! Please contact your State Legislators TODAY and respectfully urge them to defend our Second Amendment rights by opposing SB353.
