    House Republicans tried to pass Amendment A to Senate Bill 494 which would eliminate three state agencies. The three agencies that were proposed to be eliminated by theamendment were the Dept. on Aging, Dept. of Hearing Impaired and the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners. The amendment was voted down at 11:37PM, today, May 5th, the last day of the session, ending at 12PM. All Republicans voted for the Amendment. All Republican representatives voted to eliminate the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners. Whydo the Republicans want to eliminate the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners? Rep. Cafero, Rep. Miner, Rep. Klarides and other Republicans spoke in favor of the amendment. Remember this November when the elections are held that you write to your local newspapers in the Republican districts to let them know if you agree. You may not need the Board of Firearms and maybe don't believe you will ever need the Board, But remember not to argue with your wife while the nosey neighbor is walking by, don't have your gun stolen while your gun is stored in your car in a safe locked box, don't buy a gun from a friend without the proper paper work with all i's dotted and the t's crossed, don't clean your gunin case it accidentally firesand don't buy food from the take outwindow aChili's restaurant in Glastonbury. Without the Board the police will make the decision if you should have your permit. Remember your right to appeal the decision to revoke your permit almost was eliminated by CT Republican representatives at 11:37PM on the last day of the legislative session.

    Hard to believe that Labriola and Rebimbas voted to kill the board.

    I know the question is why. It would be nice if someone in their district would ask them.

    Better than someone from their district, the CCDL will ask them.

    I just sent an e-mail to Rep Wood. She has been very easy & open with me in the past and I'm a bit surprised she voted for this thing.
