“Probably because there is no permit required to own those guns in Connecticut just to conceal/carry but records of purchase must be kept by gun shops and they wanted copies of those records for their investigation before they could get lost.”

According to the chart below for all the states, there is a requirement for a permit or a license for handguns in Connecticut.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/interactive/2013/jan/15/gun-laws-united-states

I looked it up at this site also:
http://crime.about.com/od/gunlawsbystate/p/gunlaws_ct.htm

“•Permit to purchase handgun? Yes

No state permit is required for the purchase of rifles or shotguns. A permit to carry, permit to sell handguns, or handgun eligibility certificate is required to purchase a pistol or revolver.

No state permit is required for the purchase of rifles or shotguns. A permit to carry, permit to sell handguns, or handgun eligibility certificate is required to purchase a pistol or revolver.

A handgun eligibility certificate, valid for five years, shall be issued by the Commissioner of Public Safety within 60 days after receipt of the National Criminal History Records check from the FBI to a person who may lawfully possess a handgun, who completes a handgun safety course, is fingerprinted, and pays a fee.

So I guess technically, it is called a handgun eligibility certificate.

The eligibility certificate entitles a person to purchase, but not to carry, a handgun.”

From the Connecticut State website:
http://www.ct.gov/despp/cwp/view.asp?a=4213&q=494614#eligibility

Eligibility Certificate
An eligibility certificate is issued pursuant to C.G.S. 29-36f through 29-36i. It entitles the holder to purchase a firearm and transport same to their residence or place of business. It does not entitle the holder to carry a pistol or revolver on their person.

Applicants must be at least 21 years old and be a legal resident of the United States. Persons convicted of a felony or any one of 11 misdemeanor offenses detailed in the statute are ineligible to receive an eligibility certificate. Persons convicted as a delinquent for the commission of a serious juvenile offense (as defined in Section 46b-120); persons discharged from custody within the preceding twenty years after having been found not guilty of a crime by reason of mental disease or defect (pursuant to section 53a-13); persons confined in a hospital for persons with psychiatric disabilities (as defined in section 17a-495), within the preceding 12 months by order of a probate court; persons subject to a restraining or protective order issued by a court in a case involving the use, attempted use or threatened use of physical force against another person; persons subject to a firearms seizure order issued pursuant to C.G.S. 29-38c after notice and hearing; and any person who is an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States, are prohibited from obtaining an eligibility certificate.

The cost for obtaining an eligibility certificate is $35.00, payable to the Treasurer, State of Connecticut. The eligibility certificate is good for a period of five years. The application paperwork may be obtained from SLFU or any state police barracks. You are required to complete a handgun safety course prior to submitting the application, which must consist of no less than the NRA’s “Basic Pistol Course.” The NRA’s “Home Firearms Safety Course” and “First Steps Pistol Orientation Program” are not approved courses.

You will also be required to submit to a background investigation, criminal history check and submit photographs and fingerprints in connection with your application.

The issuing authority has 90 days to review your application and issue an approval or denial. In the event that they deny your application, they must provide you a written explanation listing the basis for denial. A denial may be appealed to the Board of Firearm Permit Examiners as provided under C.G.S. 29-32b.

It makes sense that the police might release another police officer quickly, but if it was an off-duty tactical squad police officer from another town, I wonder why he ran.

Running sounds like a stupid thing to do, when police are swarming all over the area looking for anyone who might have been involved in murdering kids. He might not have known someone had just killed children, but he had to know you don't run from police.

It makes me wonder what else was going on at Sandy Hook that day.

<>It makes me wonder what else was going on at Sandy Hook that day.<>

They were making gingerbread houses:

“Chris Manfredonia, whose 6-year-old daughter attends the school, was heading there Friday morning to help make gingerbread houses with first-graders when he heard popping sounds and smelled sulfur.

“He ran around the school trying to reach his daughter and was briefly handcuffed by police. He later found his child, who had been locked in a small room with a teacher.”

http://articles.latimes.com/2012/dec/14/nation/la-na-1215-newtown-school-shooting-20121215

Chris Manfredonia however is the AD at Fairfield High and not an “off-duty tactical squad police officer from another town”.

So this would have to be a different person found in the woods that day. Perhaps he heard the police dispatch and responded and was searching the woods on his own.

I think the whole thing stinks. I put nothing past the government.

If they can call the WTC inside then I call this inside.
What timing for zippy’s second term right off the bat?
Sick, I know but that’s my feeling.

“If they can call the WTC inside then I call this inside.”

Sure, but if you do, most people are going to view you the same way we view the 9/11 truthers, and I would say with good reason.

Well, the incompetent media and the conspiracy theorists sure are. The local cops have been pretty consistent from day one.

(P.A. 93-306, S. 1; P.A. 01-130, S. 1.)

History: P.A. 01-130 amended Subsec. (a) to delete reference to Sec. 53a-46a(h), make technical changes in Subdiv. (2) and add Subdivs. (3) and (4) re physical characteristics criteria applicable to definition of “assault weapon” and amended Subsec. (b) to delete reference to Sec. 53a-46a(h).

Cited. 234 C. 455. Cited. 242 C. 143.

Defendant’s conviction under Sec. 53-202c did not violate his due process rights because, as a matter of law, a Maadi MISR is an “assault weapon” as defined in section. Defendant’s due process rights were not violated by trial court’s not concluding section is vague as applied to circumstances of his case. 93 CA 129.

I’m not a conspiracy type either but none of this Sandy Hook crap is adding up. Something stinks.

Timing and subject matter alone.

TWO WEEKS after a OTrauma victory.

TWO WEEKS before Christmas.

KINDERGARTENERS.

Could we have just had Lanza stomp a few kittens on the way out, just to complete and perfect the scenario??!?

Right. What bothers me is that this guy went in and shot 5 and 6 year olds. We’ve got a huge problem in this country and it’s not guns. People are the problem. Unfortunately, in this era of “gimme a hug” politicians, we wouldn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. It’s better to go after inanimate objects that do not have feelings that can be hurt.
