    Connecticut Carry - Legislative wrap up

    Midnight last night marked the end of this legislative session.

    Here is how we fared:

    SB 64

    A bill that would have lowered the allowable BAC while carrying a loaded firearm.

    Position: Opposed.
    Status: Dead.



    SB 196

    A bill that eliminates the redundant bound book requirement for FFLs.

    Position: Supported.
    Status: In Concurrence.



    HB 5245

    An ill-conceived but well-intentioned bill that sought to establish an explicit criteria for a pistol permit application. Unfortunately, it also changed the requirements to mandate fingerprinting which is not a requirement currently.

    Position: Opposed (support withdrawn).
    Status: Dead.



    HB 5220

    A truly terrible piece of potential legislation that sought to ban air guns, toy guns, air soft guns, etc from all private and public property within 1500 ft of school properties. This bill was fought heavily against by Connecticut Carry, and is still being investigated. Stay tuned for some interesting developments on this bill and the shenanigans behind the scenes.

    Position: Opposed.
    Status: Dead.



    HB 5550

    To provide federal probation officers with access to the state firearm database to determine whether persons serving a period of federal probation possess a permit to carry a firearm.

    Position: Opposed.
    Status: On Consent Calendar / In Concurrence.




    Overall, I would say we had pretty good fortune this legislative session. We avoided some landmines that would have impacted our rights and our permitting process. We must stay vigilant. There was a lot that could have gone very wrong this session. Next session could be worse.

    I just wanted to provide this link which outlines the legislative process in CT for those that are just getting into 2A advocacy >> www.cga.ct.gov/html/bill.pdf

    America, where freedom* reigns.

    *Freedom subject to change depending on jurisdiction and availability. Some freedoms may not be available due to local political expedience or prevailing political correctness. Please check Federal, State, County, City, or any other special district for applicable laws governing the extents of freedoms prior to purchase.
