CT: #45 On Guns & Ammo Ranking Of States

by Categorized: Gun control Date:

(Arizona is #1)


Guns & Ammo explains why Connecticut scores so poorly in its ranking of best states for gun owners:

While officially a May-Issue CCW state, Connecticut is a Shall-Issue state in practice—with a lot of requirements. An eligibility certificate is required to purchase a pistol. There are a number of restrictions on MSRs based on features—MSRs may be possessed provided they were purchased before Oct. 1, 1993, and the owner received a certificate of possession from the Connecticut State Police before July 1994, according to the NRA-ILA. As far as machine guns are concerned, the NRA writes, \”It is lawful to possess a machine gun in compliance with federal law, provided annual registration takes place with the state police.\” The state has a Castle Doctrine law that applies to residences. Connecticut is one of only a few states that has a law allowing for seizure of your weapons if the police just think you’re a danger to yourself or others, and may keep the gun for up to a year. There are also plenty of laws circulating in local and state legislatures about guns due to the Sandy Hook shooting.

    To listen to Malloy you would think we were #1. Sadly being #50 would not have changed the outcome of our recent tragedy.

    As someone from the midwest, highly trained in gun safety, a concealed handgun license holder, & a multi- -gun owner. I’m amazed that you ranked that high! The liberals in your state have convinced the populace that guns have & can take on a life of their own, and thus are the tools inflicting death & destruction. With that mind set, and with the state’s tunnel visioned quest towards their goals, I feel sorry for the citizens of the State of Connecticut.

    I do not even know the way I stopped up right here, but I believed this submit was once great. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger in the event you are not already. Cheers!
