Public Hearing On Gun Bills This Thursday In Hartford

Gun registration.. the only purpose to gun registration is to begin to take your guns away from you.
The Nazis did that too.

Remember Katrina?
They went house to house confiscating guns from law abiding citizens putting them at the mercy of criminals.

Criminals won't register their guns.
So what's the point of registration?
Only to let the government know who has them when they want to come take them away - that's all.

Criminals do not abide by the laws.
Why are they making it more difficult to be a law abiding gun owner?
How will that keep the public safe?

Come to the public hearing on Thursday at 10 am at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.
Contact the legislators sitting on the Public Safety Committee and tell them what you think.
Tell them what you think of the lousy anti-second amendment legislation being proposed.
One bill presented does not even have wording to it - its just a "concept".
How do you have a public hearing on a bill that has no proposed language?

Some of these bills are unenforceable at best.
This is yet more dopey knee jerk reactions from anti-gun legislators who know nothing about owning a firearm, but want to make it look like they are doing something about crime in CT.

Come out and oppose these bills:
HB 5800 AN ACT REQUIRING REGISTRATION OF ALL FIREARMS Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened: That section 29-33 of the general statutes be amended to (1) require that (A) any person who purchases a firearm register the firearm within ten days of purchase, (B) any person who purchased a firearm prior to this statute's effective date register that firearm within ten days of the effective date, (C) any person owning a firearm renew registration every five years, and (D) anyone whose registered firearm is sold, stolen or lost report such sale, theft or loss within ten days of such event; and (2) provide that the Department of Public Safety receive the registrations required by subdivision (1) of this section. Statement of Purpose: To require registration of all firearms.

Statement of Purpose: To establish gun safety standards for all firing ranges.
(There is no attached language to this bill at all!)

So it looks like the second amendment has no meaning or respect in CT. Multiple studies have shown that states with tougher gun laws have higher crime rates. Another example of a historically liberal state ignoring the statistics and deeming they know what's right...because they say so. Pathetic.
