    Proposed legislation regarding lost and stolen firearms

    The Department of public safety is proposing the elimination of the current protections for Permit Holders who report a firearm lost or stolen in a timely manner.

    This proposed legislation gives increased authority to the Department of Public Safety to revoke, (based on SUITABILITY), Permits to Carry, by eliminating the current exemption language from current law.

    Here is a link to the proposed legislation:

    I'm starting to wonder how much time we will need to spend in Hartford during this session!

    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    "The acts and circumstances behind the loss or theft of a firearm can vary significantly; in some cases those factors may in fact indicate that the owner is not suitable to carry a handgun in public."

    Are there not specific terms for the revocation of a Permit to Carry? Is this to be a new criteria/standard to be determined by "suitability" to determine whether to revoke or not?

    Seems very subjective to me.
