Connecticut: Gun Surrender Bill Moving through the General Assembly

Connecticut: Gun Surrender Bill Moving through the General Assembly

Yesterday, April 27, House Bill 5054 passed the House of Representatives with a 104-42 vote.  HB 5054 is a large omnibus bill which threatens your Right to Keep and Bear Arms as well as your Fifth Amendment right to due process.  Please click the “Take Action” button to contact your state Senator with your opposition to this legislation! 


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 strips the accused of their Second Amendment rights and would be issued by a judge based solely on a brief statement of an accuser before the accused can appear in court to defend themselves against the allegations.  Often these orders come with no allegations of criminal behavior.  These bills clearly go against an individual’s right to due process and presents a real threat to gun owners across Connecticut.
