    Hey, how is everyone doing today? Figured I would get right down to business…

    I currently hold a CT pistol permit and several firearms but wanted to make sure I was up to date on my laws. Where exactly are you finding these laws, when I google / search I never find just a list of laws to scroll through, I find related pages but not the “meat” im looking for.

    To my knowledge the following places you cannot carry are:



    -Any place posted
    -Schools / Gov’t Buildings
    -Tribal Lands
    -And the new one to me? New Britian? I tried finding the “Sec. 16-80[/quote]” law about this but had no luck! I thought the hierarchy of laws went FEDERAL > STATE > LOCAL. So im curious how that works out…?

    I will be moving to Manchester in spring…but want to make sure I can still have my permit etc… I will not move to an area where I have to give it up…

    Thanks,

    -Bingo

    Start by going to this link and then to Title 29. http://www.cga.ct.gov/2009/pub/titles.htm

    Criminal statutes I believe are in Title 53 and 53a.

    Motor Vehicle Statutes are in Title 14.

    Or go directly to this link: http://www.cga.ct.gov/2009/pub/chap529.htm

    You should read down until about Section 29-28 and start reading.

    Hey...thanks for the links!

    The next question I have...anyone know a good/trusted 2A lawyer in CT? No...I dont need one... I just want to have the info should I ever need one to help defend myself after shooting.

    Some long time CCW friends gave me the tip, they all keep a card or the number with their permits just incase they need it.

    I usually use this link for quick reference to statutes.

    http://www.jud.ct.gov/lawlib/law/firearms.htm

    Very easy to find what you are looking for quickly.


    As far as attorney's Check the CCDL web site here:

    http://www.ccdl.us/

    I believe there to be links to a few attorneys on there.

    BTW, Kudos for educating yourself and seeking the correct information for yourself. Far too many rely on wrong information being passed around by others.

    I used Ralph Sherman of West to square away a few things & highly recommend him.

    Check out http://www.ccdl.us/resources/documen...carry-pamphlet on the CCDL website. It's got a good summarization of the carry laws in CT as well as references to the statutes and related information.
