    What?

    This is insane. That pretty much makes it impossible to ship any ammunition into the state. I don't see how stores will be able to stock anything.

    The rest of their ideas are idiotic as well.

    If only they could put half as much effort into thinking up feasible solutions to this nation's very real fiscal problems and other issues as they do devising ways to screw law-abiding gun owners.

    Of course CT should institute extremely strict gun laws.

    They have been working well in Chicago for the last four decades...:rolleyes:

    CT has had an "assault weapong ban for many years. The Bushmaster that Adam Lanza used to murder those kids and adults is banned by name.

    This is a fine example of the fallacy of knee jerk gun control.

    Welp, it's finally here....or at least one of them.

    http://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/TOB/s/pdf/2013SB-00161-R00-SB.pdf

    Cliff notes -

    1) mags capped at 10 rds.
    2) designate all semi autos assault weapons
    3) permit for any rifle with a pistol grip
    4) permit to buy ammo
    5) no more online ammo sales
    6) register all firearms, to be renewed biannually

    Without internet ammunition, i simply cannot afford shooting as a hobby. All the stores in southern CT are ripoffs. That's why i got my C+R FFL. This is an Unconstitutional Government Taking.

    The bill as proposed is ridiculous.

    Only law abiding gun owners follow the new draconian laws that get passed. New laws, or even existing laws, never stop the criminal from committing heinous crimes. Problem is, politicians seem to think that new or even old laws will make a difference.
    I don't get it though. When will the politicians realize that laws only work when people have respect for them.
    A crook has no respect for the law, either new or old so it makes no difference what laws get passed to them.
    Humans in general tend to be stupid. Mostly politicians but a good amount of "regular folk" as well.

    One round. ONE ROUND. Any more and it's a class C felony.

    I have no words.

    We're actually allowed to have VZ-58s in CT :neener:

    Seems like it won't be that way for long, though. :mad:

    I'd love to go to AZ, though. It's near the top of my want-to-live-in list.

    I have two words for you: Road Trip!

    Buy your ammo in another state.

    Some foreign countries in Europe are looking better gun wise than the way these northeastern states are going.

    The more ridiculous the bill, the less chance of it passing :)

    With NY in one direction, where it'd be illegal? Or Massachussetts two hours away? My last tank of gas was $4.20 a gallon. That's still going to exclude me from the shooting sports....and probably be illegal to transport over state lines...the way this is going.

    Oh, and out of my +/-60 guns, none of them are single shot....

    Between CT taxes, the current CT AWB, and now this new poo, I'm definitely a second class U.S. citizen.

    If you choose to live in places that have tyranical politicians, you either don't complain and change it, or you move away.
    How any group of people who have an ounce of common sense, don't see this as being over reaching the athority given to these people, is beyond me.
    Get the hell out of there, if you cannot change things, then you must make some serious decisions in your life.
    If you say that you can't leave, "for whatever reason", then you choose to stay.

    This is politics. These are proposed pieces of legislation that have to be passed. Some are so embarrassingly stupid to even the Antis they won't get any effective support and some are very very dangerous and will have to be vigorously opposed politically.

    Tough talkers rarely want to do the real, and real boring, work of beating back Anti legislation. This struggle is a political one and a cultural one. The Antis are using the political process and we must WORK to beat them on that front. They are using the process of demonizing gun owners and 2A advocates in society and we must WORK to beat them on that front. Chest thumping and posturing won't get the work done and it will hurt our cause with the vast number of undecided voters who are being propagandized by the Antis. We MUST beat them on this field before we start clamoring for field of battle.
