    Out and out total state preemption I hope - no grandfathering or exceptions.

    Would be frosting on the cake if municipality were to pass an illegal ordinance, they would have to pay the legal fees and court costs for anyone charged under that illegal ordinance.

    Thanks JUMPMASTER

    Both extremely good ideas - what chance of success do they have do you think?

    Just a suggestion or two if I may.
    Edit your profile to show your state. I helps in responding to posts sometimes & the mods appreciate it. Ex: it would have kept me from scrolling up to the top to see to what state this applied.
    &
    On posts like these, a short descriptive paragraph with a link to the full bill so that all of the detail can be read and considered - there has been bad wording corrected or better suggested by readers occasionally. I know it can by googled - just saying.

    Hopefully these will proceed and be enacted to the betterment of us all. Letter and email campaigns to representatives wouldn't be a bad idea as well as one of thanks to the sponsor(s).

    Awesome, looks like your Rep Hamzy understands what this country was founded upon! I'll be writing to my reps to ask them to support this bill. My reps are pinheads though and probably won't but I'll get them to at least admit their lilly-liveredness on paper.

    This bill as well as other firearms related bills has been sent to the sub-committe on Public Safety and Security.

    There is also a proposed bill to make it illegal to sell long guns privately and to add long guns to CGS 29-28 (you would have to get a pistol permit to purchase a long gun and to take it outside your home just like they do to hand guns right now) if found to be unsuitable (DPS can call you unsuitable at their pleasure and subjectyou to wait out an appeal hearing at 2-3 years currently)you risk losing your right to carry or purchase a long gun. Are you reading this hunters???

    I contacted my State Rep Tom Reynolds of the 42nd district (Ledyard/Montville) concerning the 3bills mentioned here. He responded favorably to our concerns. He was once given an "A" by the NRA for 2nd Ammendment issues.

    He's good on gun-rights, despite being a Dem.

    Cheers,
