CT Senate Bill 1094: "felonize" posession of 10+ round magazines
NRA ILA e-mail ^ | March 3rd, 2011 | DTogo

Posted on 03/03/2011 10:29:47 AM PST by DTogo

(Via NRAILA e-mail) March 1st: Senate Bill 1094 was introduced and referred to the Joint Committee on Judiciary. SB 1094 seeks to prohibit the possession of firearms magazines that accept more than ten rounds of ammunition. If passed and signed into law, any person in possession of any magazine greater than ten rounds, who has not already surrendered the magazine prior to enactment or ninety days after enactment, will be guilty of a class D felony.

Not just banning the sale, but making it a Class D felony to even posess one. So this would "felonize" posession of numerous handguns that come with 10+ magazines?

If you purchased a 10+ magazine in handgun in CT, and via the background check state authorities know you have it, will they come to arrest you and confiscate your guns?

CT Freepers and your 2nd Amendment-exercising friends, find your CT Rep here and let them know that SB 1094 will not stand!

If passed, I will never, ever go to CT again. They can just do without my business and that of my colleagues. We will avoid trade shows in CT.

Yikes. That’s even worse than the CA version.

Is it only detachable magazines?
My Winchester holds 13 rounds in a fixed tubular magazine.

I had to turn down a contract in CT because having AR based rifles is already a felony.

Way to go. I said "NO" to another trade show because they wanted to hold it in Chicago, where I couldn't be armed. Screw it. Those hoplophobic states can just do without my business.

Exactly. Isn’t this an ex post facto law? What about compensation? On what basis would the government be confiscating these magazines? What about scissors? Aren’t they dangerous? Should they be outlawed? Box cutters? Nail guns? Cars? Old people who drive cars? Where does the tyranny of the heavy-hand of government stop?

(d) The provisions of subsection (b) of this section shall not apply to the possession of a large capacity magazine by:

(1) Members or employees of organized local police departments, the Department of Public Safety, the Department of Correction or the military or naval forces of this state or of the United States for use in the discharge of their official duties;

Standard capacity mags for public servants, but not for citizens ...

Typical leftist power grab.

Followed quickly by the Sargent Shultz bill that doesn't allow any ammo at all.

Well, when SHTF, nothing will be illegal. SBR? No problem. Pistol grip? No problem.

I'll have my AK, and whatever damn magazines I wish.

The nanny statists can shove it, and I'll laugh when they're being preyed upon by the bad guys.

The "exemption" for "public servants" is a violation of the 14th amendment. Equal protection. There is nothing special about these "public servants". Total BS.

Not in this state. We are ruled by Democrats: entire CT Assembly (House and Senate) and by a Gov.

All FReepers, stay away from this stupid state. And my fellow CT FReepers, good luck getting out of Dodge.

One would hope, but don’t bet on it. Just look at CA to see what the anti-gun lobby is capable of.

No idea, but it would likely be immediately challenged in court and waste everyone's time and money.

Turning thousands of previously law-abiding CT citizens into Class D felons - a real good use of a cash-strapped state's time and resources.

In this lib blue state, chances of passage quite good.

Malloy will sign it in a heartbeat if he can find enough time between raising taxes on everything and creating a toxic business environment.

According to the Connecticut General Assembly web site, there is to be a public hearing on 3/23. http://www.cga.ct.gov/asp/cgabillstatus/cgabillstatus.asp?selBillType=Bill&bill_num=1094&which_year=2011&SUBMIT1.x=0&SUBMIT1.y=0&SUBMIT1=Normal

I’ve sent emails to the combined judiciary committee members, but won’t be able to attend the hearing. I wonder if nobodys like me would be able to speak at the hearing or if the Dems have this so wrapped up.... :( Not happy about this at all.

Thanks for the link Wobby. Depending on the time, I might be able to speak - but what I have to say would likely get me tossed out, or worse.

Debating whether or not to bring a deer like Sir Robin of Locksley.

I spoke w/ the legislative aide of Senator Welch (R) who personally responded to my email stating that he was against the bill. She said, that even if I couldn’t make the hearing I should submit written testimony and I urge everyone else to do likewise. There’s a mailing address, but I hope to track down an email as well.

that’s not true, an AR based rifle IS legal providing it does not have a flash suppressor and a bayonet lug. AR-15’s are quite easily bought and sold

It’s almost like an Ex Post Facto law. I mean, how can you legally buy something, then next week they say your purchase is illegal?
This is not “LAW”, it’s REGULATION. It’s SOCIAL ENGINEERING.

And bad social engineering at that.
