Some of you may find this stuff interesting. Gives decent insight into the thinking that goes on in Hartford and often answers some questions many of us may have about legal issues and policy making on on firearms related topics.

I've compiled a list going back five years and I'm still working on more. Lot of relevant information in there (kept me busy for quite some time!). Hope some of y'all can find it useful.
