Skip to comments.Malloy signs 'historic' gun control legislation into law [CT]
Posted on 04/04/2013 10:01:19 AM PDT by matt04
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed a bill into law Thursday afternoon that will bring sweeping changes to gun control.
On Monday, a bipartisan agreement on gun control was unveiled by lawmakers that proposed limiting magazines to no more than 10 rounds. Those who currently have larger magazines would have to register them with state police.
The legislation, which is more than 100 pages long, will create strong penalties for anyone who carries large ammunition magazines away from home or a gun range.
The state would also become the first in the country to create a dangerous weapon offender registry and there would be universal background checks for assault weapons.
The House and the Senate voted in favor of the 139-page bill crafted by leaders from both major parties in the Democratic-controlled General Assembly.
Just after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Connecticut Senate voted 26-10 to pass the gun control legislation and the House passed the bill 105-44 just before 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

Also, their is a poll to FReep...
Okay, COLT, RUGER....it’s up to you do put your money where your mouth is. Leave the place or suffer the loss in business. I won’t buy either until then.
And what will they do the next time one of their silly-assed gun-free zones is attacked?
same here. I was lookin at a SR9. I like it.
I was just looking at a Ruger single 10 in 22LR or a single 9 in 22WMR this morning, but held off. Will see what happens
As of this posting it stands at 23% for 77% against.
They are now guilty of Treason against the people of Connecticut and the People of the United States.
If an armed rebellion ensues, they will then be guilty of Sedition.

It’s a FELONY.
Arrest the Governor and all of the legislators who voted for this.
Yes. I’m dead serious.
Needs more “Battle of Athens”.
The blood is now on the hands of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and those in the legislature who are disarming law abiding citizens but not criminals.
As well they should be. This is an open declaration of War.
Use it as an excuse to begin confiscating arms from law abiding folks in the interest of "public safety".
“...strong penalties for anyone who carries large ammunition magazines away from home or a gun range.”
How would you get them to the gun range?
Wow I can feel a loud sucking noise from the criminally inclinded steaming up the I95 corridor
Details. Details, besides it's the thought that counts and you will have an opportunity in court to prove your innocence... Mega Sarcasm tag./
If I were a liberal Democrat in Ct, I’d be wiping my ass with the little people too.
They keep getting re-elected.
Put them in the trunk of the car, drive directly away from the state and never come back.

“...The “Constitution” state...”
Whadda joke on that is! Maybe 200 years ago, but certainly not now. They should change their state motto to “Connecticut, a Communist State” or “the Walking Dead State”.
Actually, the low-information, low-intelligence unwashed masses of Connecticut are getting the very government they so richly deserve. What’s so sad is that those still sane and patriotic amongst all the “walking dead” have to suffer because of them. Maybe it’s time for anyone with even a partial bit of intelligence left, to get to heck outta there.
It’s time for Colt,Ruger and any other business even remotely tied to the firearms industry to pack up and leave. Oh, and take the millions in tax dollars with ya. There are still some free states left that will welcome you with open arms, along with some great tax breaks, lower property costs and much better and willing work force that would actually be thankful for the job opportunity.
They’ll pass even stricter laws.
Trouble is brewing.
I look foreward to seeing the first compliance survey.That way we’ll see how many gun owners are telling our esteemed governor to F off.
My husband and I were in South Carolina a couple of weeks ago... met MANY former Connecticut residents there, just randomly... we weren't seeking them out. Most seemed to be conservative, thank God. ALL were ecstatically happy they are no longer stuck in CT.
We're stuck here in The People's Socialist Republik of CT for now, but we're really looking forward to the day we're outta here...
“...Put them in the trunk of the car, drive directly away from the state and never come back....”
Best advice I’ve seen so far.
That is EXACTLY what I did back in 1974 when Taxachusetts first passed their communist, anti-constitutional gun laws. I put everything in the trunk except a for a loaded Colt Combat Commander which I stayed on my lap the whole way out of that god-forsaken place. I was leaving...one way or the other. And I was NOT going to jail for a year because of an empty .22LR shell.
Thank God...gun violence will no longer exist in Connecticutt.
(do I need the /s?)
Sorry to be such a downer, but I think things are only going to go from bad to worse in CT. My husband and I lost hope after the mid-term elections in 2010 - we thought the GOP would take one seat at least. Our side lost everything, even after we were very involved in that election cycle, and with the Tea Party locally and nationally. We're just outnumbered in CT. If you check my post above, you'll see where many former CT residents are going.
Hubby went to the capitol building in Hartford yesterday, hoping to be a part of the pro-2nd Amendment show of force. He said all he found were a bunch of guys wandering around the building aimlessly, without a leader. No one seemed to know where to go to make their stand. Not good...
Such talk is fodder for the next step.
Loose lips sink ships.
exactly - theyve been pretty silent
We have several friends (some are FReepers) who have done just that. My husband and I really hope to follow them "someday", as soon as we can afford it...
The People's Socialist Republik of Connecticut really sucks. The entire northeast is hopeless, IMO.
I was at Cabala’s yesterday. The place was packed and the ammo and guns were picked over. Most people said they had no intention of complying.

That’s great.I guess we’ll soon see how the state is going to enforce this worthless statute.
Let me sign my name large so that the King may read it unaided. /Hancock.
The time for hiding and walking small is over.
Interesting and very under utilized. Deprivation and Conspiracy to commit same are mentioned in two different spots in the USC. Both are felonies that can carry up to life in prison or the death penalty.
To my fellow CT FReepers: You CAN leave. You SHOULD leave, especially if you’re paying outrageous CT income tax.
Even the US Senators from CT Murphy & Blumenthal are tools to the UN and the O’ministration because they voted for UN treaty on world arms “control” without being specific enough.
RIVAL NEW YORK’S “SAFE ACT” DEMONSTRATIONS WITH YOURS NOW!
I've been urging people to use this. Also section 241: Conspiracy against rights, since it's more than a single bad actor, and they are acting in collusion.
This is an open and public site. Saying you will attack “X” is a great way for X or Y to call for bans on web sites, guns, and who knows what else.
If a person in CT takes a 30 rd magazine in to get it registered can it now be seized as contraband because it has not yet been registered?
Or is there a time limit before they begin to seize them?
Tonight in Manchester CT, Malloy and Wyman will have town hall meeting.
WHO: Governor Malloy, Lt. Governor Wyman
WHAT: Governor Malloy & Lt. Governor Wyman host a community forum
WHEN: Thursday, April 4, 2013; 7:00-8:00 p.m.
WHERE: Manchester Town Hall, Lincoln Center Hearing Room; 494 Main Street, Manchester
Do you support the new gun legislation?
The new “assault weapons” ban went into effect when it was signed. Registration of “assault weapons” and 30 rd mags does not go into effect yet.
That isn’t going to happen, but I completely agree with you.
Any law a hundred pages long is a bad, ill thought mess. A well drafted bill should be read & discussed both in committee and then before each legislative body to iron out confusing language, how it addresses the intended issue and amended or deleted to put it in finished form. It should not be rushed through as that leads to errors & consequences not intended by the drafters.
Laws also should not be too general as that lets the administering officials bend it with rulemaking to cover results not intended when made law.
When laws are done ignoring these guidelines you get horrors such as Obamacare & this CT anti gun rights law.
Right. These communists want a fight? I say give it to ‘em.We just need leaders.
Step 1: Pass ridiculous gun laws. Should the law ever affect criminal ability to get high capacity guns/,magazines, criminals will turn to “stealth” shooting. Then Step 2; total elimination of guns in the hands of honest citizens. Result: Thug rule and government overreach into our wallets without restraint. Without ability to honestly accumulate more wealth, we’ll get more thugs. Expect intense competition from thugs and goverment for your assets.
