Connecticut: Second Amendment-Related Bills <br/>to be Considered in Committee Next Week!

Friday, February 25, 2011

On Thursday, March 3 at 10:00 a.m. in Room 1E of the Legislative Office Building (LOB), the Public Safety and Security Committee will hold a public hearing on a number of bills of interest to Connecticut’s law-abiding gun owners.

Sign-up for the hearing will begin at 9:00 a.m. in LOB Room 1B. The first hour of the hearing is reserved for Legislators, Constitutional Officers, State Agency Heads and Chief Elected Municipal Officials. Speakers will be limited to three minutes of testimony.

If you are unable to attend, please contact the
members of this committee by e-mail and respectfully request them to support Senate Bill 966, Senate Bill 967, House Bill 6376 and House Bill 6377.  Also, please urge them to oppose House Bill 6416.

The following bills were all introduced by the Public Safety and Security Committee as Raised Bills.

Support:

Senate Bill 966 would seek to extend the permit to sell pistols or revolvers to allow sales of pistols or revolvers at meetings or exhibitions of an organized collectors' group or at gun shows

Senate Bill 967 would seek to create uniform criteria for the issuance of a temporary state permit to carry a pistol or revolver.

House Bill 6376 would eliminate a requirement that vendors of pistols and revolvers keep a record of each sale of a pistol or revolver

House Bill 6377 would eliminate municipal regulation of firearms and help create uniform laws throughout Connecticut.

Oppose:

House Bill 6416, introduced by the Public Safety and Security Committee as a Raised bill. HB 6416 will create a redundant requirement on firearm show promoters by forcing them to the Commissioner of Public Safety as to the date, time, duration and location of a gun show. Currently, Connecticut law requires the promoter to provide this information to the Chief of Police of the town in which the gun show will take place.
