    Believe me we are trying. The State Police here tries like crazy to legislate by creating bogus policy for one thing, but keep in mind as another poster pointed out, Probably every State has some means to confiscate firearms at least temporarily .

    Our big fight at the moment mainly seems to be permits being yanked for either open carrying or blowing concealment here.

    Which is complete BS because there is NOTHING in the laws prohibiting open carry. I should be perfectly legal by default, but the SFLU and the corrupt staties are always making their own rules. :rolleyes:

    Seems like we were once again propelled just a bit closer to "1984" and "A Clockwork Orange".

    John B. Larson doesn't want to talk to you if you don't live in CT, but you can try, using the zip of 06106.

    By the way, the law is in Chapter 529, sec. 29-38c.

    That's an awful lot of "what if's?" considering people's civil rights could be getting violated.

    That first article appears dated. However, the second one doing the follow up, nearly a decade later, just shows how active the antis are when it comes to beating a dead horse. It looks like, after Heller, they really got their panties in a wad up there and are grasping at straws, if they're going to dig crap legislation like that up.:rolleyes:

    I do wonder on what basis that the people whose guns were not returned were denied on. If the technical wording is the same as the editorial, then I'm banking this is wholly unconstitutional. I would only hope that those who had their property wrongfully seized - even if returned - could and would sue for civil damages.

    I live in a non-registry state.

    I just wonder, if there is some way for private citizens contemplating exchanging guns for money to assure each other that neither of them is a dangerous criminal lunatic, without the .gov finding out about the transaction.
