Connecticut: Bill that Violates Due Process Scheduled for Hearing

On Monday, March 14, House Bill 5054 is scheduled for a public hearing in the Joint Committee on Judiciary.  HB 5054 threatens both your Right to Keep and Bear Arms as well as your Fifth Amendment right to due process.  It is critical that you contact the members of the Joint Committee on Judiciary and politely urge him them to oppose HB 5054.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact the members of the joint committee!

Additionally, if you are available, please consider attending the public hearing on March 14 at 10:30am in Room 2C of the Legislative Office Building.  To attend the hearing, you must sign-up between 8:30am-10:00am in Room 2500.  Your participation is absolutely necessary to defeat this bill and protect your rights.  Written testimony can also be submitted by emailing the committee at: judtestimony@cga.ct.gov.  Please be respectful, but clear, you OPPOSE HB 5054.

As previously reported, HB 5054 would require the recipient of an ex parte temporary restraining order to surrender their firearms to the police or a licensed dealer within 24 hours of being served with an order.  This ex parte order, which strips the accused of their Second Amendment rights, would be issued by a judge based solely on a brief statement of an accuser and before the accused can appear in court to defend themselves against the allegations.  Often these orders come with no allegations of criminal behavior.  HB 5054 clearly goes against an individual’s right to due process and presents a real threat to gun owners across Connecticut. 

Once again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact the Joint Committee on Judiciary with your opposition to HB 5054!  Also, please consider attending the hearing on Monday, March 14, to show your strong opposition to this legislation.
