(CT)Gun Control Advocates Amazed At How Far The Gun Bill Goes; Toughest In The Nation
Hartford Courant Capitol Watch ^

Posted on 04/01/2013 7:33:36 PM PDT by matt04

Lobbyists Betty Gallo and Ron Pinciaro have been pushing for gun control for years with mixed success.

As a result, Gallo was stunned Monday at the sweeping nature of a bipartisan bill on assault weapons, ammunition, magazines, and background checks that could pass in the state legislature as early as Wednesday.

“This is really amazing,” Gallo said in an interview.

She added, “Two years ago, we lost a ban on high-capacity magazines, and we couldn’t get it out of the judiciary committee.”

Today, the proposed ban on the magazines is highly comprehensive. The bill calls for the immediate ban on the sale, purchase and importation of the magazines. Buying, selling, importing or transferring the magazines for free would be a Class D felony. The maximum penalty for a Class D felony is five years in prison and a fine of $5,000.

Ron Pinciaro, the executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence for the past 11 years, said, “This couldn’t have happened in any other state in any other year.”

And this bill, if passed and implemented, will serve to attract even more mad dog killers to Connecticut ~

So, tell us, just what is there about Connecticut that they feel this need to protect the mad dog killers in their state?

More laws that do nothing. CT already had the toughest gun laws on the books ... yet they still failed. Stuck on stupid.

This is a power grab. It’s another law that enables the overlords to have a reason to batter ram your door and shoot your dog, and take your kids, and leave you with a tremendous lawyer bill that will cost you your life savings, and all the while ruin your reputation etc.

Just to be clear.

Owning a box with an internal spring will turn you into a Felon. You will serve time in Prison and be fined $5,000.

Sneaking into this Country, stealing someone’s Identity and Voting in our Elections will get you Amnesty and the undying love, respect and pity of the Democrat’s, RINO’s, Communist’s, Progressive’s, Journalist’s and Hollywood.

Transacting new magazines here is not a felony, and presently-possessed mags are grandfathered. (Plus, many sheriffs including my own have stated they will not enforce the law at all.) As much as I hate what is happening here, what has just happened in CT is far worse.

Well, if they fail again, that will merely be proof that the laws didn’t go far enough.

Obama travelled to CT several times during the election, and during one of the recent natural disasters. I believe that during one of these trips Malloy and Obama met and discussed Malloy getting some nice Fed job with Obama. That hasn’t happened yet and I beleive Malloy is trying to show Obama he is worthy.

He knows he only won by 6k votes, after a judge ordered the Dem stronghold of Bridgeport to extend voting two hours due to Ballot shortages. He has made no mention of running again in 2014. I suspect he is tying to do what ever it takes to move up higher in the Dem party and use CT to do it.

For a sheet-metal box with a spring in it. An unjust government is not legit.

“Time to get rid of the New England states and the left coast.”

Maine has a conservative TEA Party governor and, as a mostly rural state, people here like their firearms.

Thankfully, we’re not going over the deep end like Connecticut.

Well, having a massacre really advanced the statist's agenda.

I'm hope they'd be quite happy if this happened more often. I'm sure it's a price they're more than willing to pay.

Yep, nothing to see here. The courts will take care of it. Besides, there's always the next election, voters will take care of it.

I hope we can tie-up this BS for years and get it all reversed. With the SCOTOS’ make-up, especially Roberts, I have my doubts. If not, CWII is just around the corner and getting nearer. This isn’t going to end well for America.
