Connecticut Moves Forward With Magazine Ban and Other Legislation


This past Friday, members of the Connecticut Judiciary Committee decided to move forward with drafting legislation to ban what they call “high capacity” magazines. NSSF will continue to monitor the situation and inform everyone about the bill once it is drafted.

Also, the Public Safety Committee will be holding a hearing this Thursday, Feb. 10, at 10 a.m. in Room 2A of the Legislative Office Building. Two of the more onerous bills scheduled are HB 5800, requiring the registration of all firearms every five years, and also SB 42 (language yet to published), which seeks to establish safety standards for all ranges throughout the state. NSSF is encouraging all sportsmen and gun owners to express their opposition to HB 5800 and SB 42 by contacting members of the committee.
