Connecticut pols strike deal to expand assault-weapons ban, restrict high-capacity magazines
"Connecticut lawmakers announced a deal Monday which would include a ban on new high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the massacre that left 20 children and six educators dead. The proposal includes new registration requirements for existing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets.
The package also creates what lawmakers said is the nation's first statewide dangerous weapon offender registry, creates a new "ammunition eligibility certificate," imposes immediate universal background checks for all firearms sales, and extends the state's assault weapons ban to 100 new types of firearms and requires that a weapon have only one of several features in order to be banned.
The newly banned weapons could no longer be bought or sold in Connecticut, and those legally owned already would have to be registered with the state, just like the high-capacity magazines."
This will be interesting to watch. Colt now cannot manufacture or sell normal mags, and will they register the ones they have in inventory they cannot sell? Will CT allow their sale across state lines?
“So, Colt, Mossberg, Marlin, and Ruger, are you going to stay in Connecticut? (Vanity)”
Perhaps better would be:
So, American citizens with any amount of self-respect, are you going to stay in Connecticut? (Vanity)
Go ahead CT listen to Soetoro and the rest of the libtards.
I will be leaving Ct with the gun makers
Connecticut is a small State. Should be too hard to drive across the border and buy ammo.
But why would anyone want to live in such a repressive State.
I’m thinking that opening up an ammo store as close to the Connecticut state line would be most profitable.
I can see the lines of cars that just happen to be using that road...each and every day.
Keep it up, liberals, I’ll enjoy sitting back and watching when folks get fed up with your idiocy and do what fed up folks do.
Yes, most assuredly. Big DOD contracts at stake, you know.
Why spend millions of dollars to relocate just to have the feds come after you with the same rules that would make a business relocate in the first place? The gubmit relationship to American business is now like a Tonya Harding who can’t be arrested.
Good idea, unless you consider CT is bordered by NY and MA. Not sure where RI (the other border state) factors in. I left CT in 1981, myself. Beautiful place, nice folks, too bad about the local government.
Yeah, but with New York on one border and Massachusetts on the other, how? I don't see Rhode Island as a hotbed of gun rights advocacy, either...
“Big DOD contracts at stake, you know. “
The consumer boycott against S&W made them cry. Does Marlin and Mossberg get enough government contracts to survive a protest boycott?
“Dangerous Weapons Registry”? WTF? Guess you best get busy collecting the SN’s off your chain saws, nail guns, recip saws, and just about anything else that is “dangerous”. And lets not forget one of the biggest accidents waiting to happen. Swimming pools. And here I thought we had reached the height of dumb assedness. Dumb asses (aka: radical left wing extremist demokkkrat scumbag socialists) always seem to be able to raise that bar don’t they?
They need to move south:
-Right to work states
-People who are willing to work for $10/hour and consider it good wages.
-Gun ownership is still legal and acceptable.
NC needs jobs. Come on down.
Conn has been my home for about 30 of my 43 years. I like much about the state, except the politics.
I think Colt, Sturm-Ruger, Mossberg, Marlin and myself ought to move the heck out. So sick of these idiots around me.
Oh good, this will ASSURE there will never be another gun death in Connecticut......(if you don’t know this is sarcasm I’m so sorry for you)
I believe that Ruger only has corporate offices remaining in Connecticut. Their manufacturing is in Prescott, AZ.
Of course, New York gunmakers could be asked the same questions. I see no reason to put money in the coffers of anti-gun states through corporate taxes.
The CIvil War between the gun states and the no-gun states will be pretty one-sided.
People are gonna continue buying their choices in firearms while they still have the chance. Nobody's going to make the choice to punish any of the firearms makers you mention over the stupidity of a bunch of yankee politicians.
If anything, Colt, Ruger, et al will just move their manufacture of standard capacity magazines somewhere else, or they'll just outsource that part of the business.
Left Connecticut to serve in military and see the world. After 40 years, no reason to return. They turned my Danbury Fair into a lousy mall. No more Saturday night stock car races.
Not only would they find a cheaper labor force if they moved south, they would find thousands of people who know and love and respect firearms, and as a result, quality would be high. If they locate near a major military base like Ft. Benning or Parris Island they could tap into the retired military job pool as well.
Marlin has closed their doors.
they are doing just that in western ny
Glad to hear it.
Sad for the workers but happy for the country.
Read the article, which seems to imply that this was a business decision a long time in coming. The article mentioned closing a plant back in 2010. Maybe the business owners saw things coming down the road and decided to move out a little at a time. What do you think?
“Marlin’s production is in NY now, alongside Remington. Reportedly, the quality of the lever guns has suffered as a result. “
Who could possibly have predicted THAT?/s
I’m sure that Colt, willing to sell the hangman the rope that will be used to kill them, will gladly sell all of those evil 30 round magazines to DoD and DHS.
That happened in 2011
“Marlin has closed their doors.”
Mossberg’s CEO made a lot of people angry over past two weeks. They shut down comments on their Facebook page referring to his statement regarding the NRA. I don’t expect too much out of them anytime soon.
NC has been infiltrated by libs, just like Colorado.
They would be safer choosing SC, a right to work state firmly in Republican control.
I a still waiting for the law that you have to wear a life jacket on the beach at Atlantic City or Ocean City Maryland.
Sorry. Looks like my previous link was old news. Darn. Would be nice to see a major maker shaking the dust off their shoes in one of these socialist states for political reasons.
