Connecticut: Gun Control Legislation Nearing House Vote

Connecticut:  Gun Control Legislation Nearing House Vote

Gun banners in Hartford have been busy all session cooking up a concoction of more gun control.  In a state where there is already a large buffet of gun laws, it’s time for Connecticut gun owners to say “Enough!”  There is no shortage of gun laws in the state, and this is nothing more than political pandering. Your immediate assistance is needed! It is imperative that you contact your representative NOW and urge them to OPPOSE HB 6667 which severely restricts the second amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen! Additionally, please share this alert with your family and friends, and ask them to do the same.

HB 6667 is likely to come up for a vote today!  For weeks, legislators have sliced and diced a bill that started out including everything under the sun.  The original Omnibus Gun Control bill being pushed by anti-gun Gov. Ned Lamont contained a bit of everything: ghost guns, age restrictions on ammunition purchases, and a gun-banner’s wish list of items.  A separate bill even addressed microstamping, which is nothing more than a back-door handgun ban.  Now, it appears anti-gun politicians are ready to push their version of HB 6667 as the 2023 legislative session inches closer to the final gavel.  This bill also referred to as the 2023 Assault Weapons ban, bans all semi-automatic “assault weapons” as long as they accept a detachable magazine and contain certain “banned” cosmetic features, regardless of manufacture, and the bill bans Connecticut “others.”  The legislation also contains a one-handgun-a-month scheme and mandatory storage, rendering self-defense in the home obsolete.

We have received indications that this bill is likely to come up for a vote today in the House!  Your immediate action is requested.  Please contact your Representative today and respectfully request a “no’ vote on any and all gun control.  Connecticut has trampled on the rights of law-abiding gun owners for far too long.  The state has some of the harshest gun control laws in the country, and prosecutors need to enforce the laws already on the books.  Act Now and contact your Representative!
