Good for Connecticut. Let's hope their example of practical gun control
shows the remaining states how to get it done.
At least one state is finally carrying out the 2nd Amendment mandate 'well
regulated.' Good work, CN.
Not sure what's practical about parts of this bill.1. Magazines
don't have Serial Numbers on them so it will be difficult to register the
existing ones.2. Will the Law Enforcement Officers and State Security
Forces also be banned from having these guns and magazines? 3. How much
additional cost will be involved in background checks that are required to
purchase ammunition or magazines?4. Will all of these background check
records be destroyed after verification or will they become a defacto gun
registry?5. Doesn't really address the problem of preventing guns,
etc. from being purchased or stolen by people who are not on the Do Not Sell
Registry but are mentally unstable.
BRAVO, Connecticut! As techpubs points out, this doesn't solve all the
problems but it is a reasonable step forward.
This law is ridiculous as it will do nothing to stop criminals from getting what
ever weapons they want, it is just another example of the nanny state getting
stronger. If I lived in that state and my represenitive voted for this nonsence
they'd be hearing from me every day. What part of keeping and bearing arms
shall not be ifringed do they not understand. THE ONLY THING THAT STOPS A BAD
GUY WITH A GUN IS A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN!!!
This law is clearly unconstitutional. Further, it will not survive any Court
challenges in United States District Court. It therefore is destined for the
trash heap, which is definitely where it belongs.
I always enjoy comments from people who declare a law "unconstitutional"
because they read part of the Constitution once and think themselves experts.
Our third branch of government - the courts - have the final say. By all means,
read the Constitution, but don't forget to read all the court cases that
I heard on the evening news that people who have been killed by guns probably
would have supported the ban on guns. I sure hope they don't. If I was
killed by a violent incident with a gun. I would go to my grave wishing that I
would've had a gun.
So Obama says the school kids were killed with a fully automatic weapon. Either
he is an idiot that has no clue what he is talking about or the government is
lying about what happened.
@ Irony GuyWas that a joke? Because the well regulated part refers
to the militia, not the guns.@ The Skeptical ChymistQuestion. You call it a reasonable step forward. I'd like to know how
far the steps should go before they become UN-reasonable. In your opinion.
