Connecticut: Public Safety and Security Committee Moves Gun Control Bills

Thursday, March 21, 2013

The final meeting of the Public Safety and Security Committee for this legislative session was held today and no new gun control measures were discussed.  Earlier this week, this committee met to consider several gun control measures.

The measures that passed in the Public Safety and Security Committee on Tuesday are as follows:

Senate Bill 506 – Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm. (Passed by an unrecorded voice vote.)

Senate Bill 710 – Gives the local authority the ability to decide whether or not to grant a permit for a gun show and establishes a permitting process. (Passed by an unrecorded voice vote.)

Senate Bill 897 – Requires the purchaser of a firearm to provide their birthdate and place of birth at the time of delivery and eliminates the temporary eligibility certificate for a pistol or a revolver. (Passed by a 23-0 vote.)

Next week, Governor Dannel Malloy (D) and anti-gun legislators are aggressively trying to push through an Emergency Certification Bill (E-Cert), a procedure by which the House Speaker and Senate President Pro Tempore jointly propose legislation and send it directly to the House or Senate floor for a vote.  An E-Cert would bypass the committee process and public hearings, eliminating your opportunity for input.

As of today, the overwhelming majority of gun-related legislation that has been introduced in Connecticut is an affront to your constitutional rights as a law-abiding citizen.  Some of the most egregious proposals are expected to be rolled into this comprehensive gun control package, including a gun and ammunition rationing scheme, a ban on standard capacity magazines, the registration of all firearms and a ban on nearly all commonly owned semi-automatic firearms used for self-defense, recreational and competitive target shooting, and hunting.

This arbitrary and unconstitutional legislation will only burden and punish law-abiding citizens in Connecticut.  Please contact your state legislators and urge them to stand up for freedom by voting against any bill that would infringe upon your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  Click here to view contact information for your state legislators.
