On February 1st at 1:00PM, the Connecticut state Joint Committee on Judiciary will be holding a meeting where they will draft anti-gun legislation. Please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE Proposed Senate Bill 60 and any gun control topics raised. Click the “Take Action” button below to contact committee members.
The agenda includes topics calling for legislation that would end the centuries-old practice of home manufacturing firearms for personal use as well as imposing one-size-fits-all requirements on firearm storage that would ignore personal circumstances and make firearms unavailable for self-defense.
Proposed Senate Bill 60, introduced by Senator Martin Looney (D-11), would allow law enforcement officers to demand that Connecticut handgun permit holders present their permit if the officer had reason to believe they were carrying a handgun. It would violate a citizen’s freedom from unreasonable search and seizure guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Current law already allows police officers to request proof of a permit, but only when they have a “reasonable suspicion” that a crime is being committed, supported by articulable facts that criminal activity is occurring.
Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact committee members urge them to OPPOSE Proposed Senate Bill 60 and any other gun control topics raised.
