Oppose The Proposal For Long Gun Registration In CT

ALERT! Long Gun Registration Bill is being considered in CT.

There will be a Public Hearing Thursday in Hartford at the State Legislative Office Building on H5158!

The hearing is on February 18th at 11:00am - Sign Up to speak by 9:00am!

Section 10 of the bill "An Act Concerning the Regulation of Firearms" includes the registration of LONG GUNS just like handguns!

There are other aspects of this bill to be opposed to including pre-approval and notification of BOTH the local chief of police AND the State Police before allowing a GUN SHOW!

CALL the Public Safety Committee at the CT State Legislature; 860-240-0570 to oppose this bill!

There is NO PUBLIC SAFETY VALUE in spending money and time on State Police to create and maintain a Long Gun Registration database that is possibly illegal under federal law!

Why are we not allocating OUR TAX DOLLARS and State Police manpower to arrest ANY of the thousands of criminals on CT streets who have outstanding warrants?
