[Connecticut]: Two Months Is Too Long For Gun-Ban Rules
Hart\ford Courant ^ | April 29, 2013 | Dan Haar

So much has happened since April 4 that it seems like more than four weeks since Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed the strict gun control bill into law. We had the showdown on background checks in the U.S. Senate, and of course, the Boston Marathon bombings.

One thing that hasn’t happened — and won’t happen until June 1 — is the state clearing up all the sales rules on military-style weapons and magazines larger than 10 rounds, for retailers and manufacturers. That’s a long time for an up-or-down answer on whether a merchant can sell his or her wares under a law that took effect upon signing.

Sure, the state has cleared up some of the obvious questions, like whether guns bought and paid for online before the law went into effect could be delivered later. (Yes.) But there are lots of fine points, and they matter a lot to the people trying to make a living in the firearms business.

Amen.

Did you see the report that Stag Arms To Design Connecticut-Legal AR-15 Rifles? Mark Malkowski said he’s designing 3 new guns that are CT compliant; and that he ‘s read the bill and still doesn’t understand it. Heh.

But the gun dealers will. So you'll have to purchase stuff out of state, and have an out of state address (which adds to the expense and effort), because I'd be willing to bet no internet dealer will ship any of the verboten items to CT.

"....because I'd be willing to bet no internet dealer will ship any of the verboten items to CT."

That's OK - guns are bad anyway, that's why I traded all of mine for a table saw.......

Is it now illegal for a CT citizen to purchase an 80% AR15 lower and assemble one him/herself?

That’s one of the questions people have been asking and seeking to resolve.

*We don’t know what’s in it, until we pass it* legislative conundrums. Where have we heard that before?
