(An “ammunition eligibility certificate” required to buy ammo)
This is the most awful part of the law, and just the start. Now it’s the government that decides to give you rights. You don’t start with any! The way the Constitution was written is that the citizen retains all rights except for those that the citizen makes the government eligible to.
A little to the south of Connecticut in the People's Republic of New Jersey, we've been required to have a "Firearms Purchaser ID" to buy ammo since 2008. (Our gangsters being too dumb to drive across the bridge from Camden and Trenton to legally purchase ammo at a WalMart in Pennsylvania?) And we've had magazine capacity restricted to 15 rounds here since 1991. I would be happy to register 30 round magazines with the State of NJ, if I could only buy them!
If all these laws had been in place in Connecticut the week before the Sandy Hood massacre, would they have stopped Adam Lanza?
If anyone is wondering why all the jobs and people with marketable skills are moving away from the big blue states, the thinking that brought Connecticut to this is a prime example.
