Connecticut lawmakers are touting comprehensive firearm restrictions passed one year ago as instrumental to a continuing decline in gun violence.
In April 2013, a bill reached Gov. Dannel Malloys desk that required, among other provisions, universal background checks for all gun purchases and a thorough registration process for all existing firearms. Malloy quickly signed SB1160 into law. The bills final leg widening the sweep of restrictions to shotguns and rifles was phased in this month, marking a 12-month push to fight crime by ensuring weapons do not fall into the wrong hands.

We will see how much praise it get on election day this year.
The Connecticut citizens, by and large, told them to shove their null and void "law"!
If you repeat a lie often enough and with sufficient emphasis, people come to regard it as truth.
In fact, there have been NO reliable statistical compilations or analyses performed since the passage of the Connecticut law.
The writer is taking a flyer and guessing - with a great deal of wishful thinking.
But they were merely a patch on the usual runaway statist fantasies.
However, as with all things liberal, facts have no bearing. It's all about feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelings.
How many felons have registered their guns? Zero I presume.
More ‘Statistics and Other Lies at Yale’....
More Police State democrats taking an “Obama Strut” to celebrate their part in trashing the US Constitution.
***How many felons have registered their guns? Zero I presume.***
Felons are not required to register.
“The original Haynes decision continues to block state prosecutions of criminals who fail to register guns as required by various state law gun registration schemes.”
Gov. Dannel Malloy, want to impress someone? take on the drug gangs and thugs in your inner cities who are killing your citizens with ILLEGAL guns, a##clowns all of them
Every “gun” story I have read in the lame stream media includes “Since Sandy Hook” or “Since Unamarmed Angelic Cherub Unarmed Black Teen Trayvon Martin was Shot.”
Every frickin’ one of them.
If you check the stats (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_violence_in_the_United_States_by_state) New Hampshire and Vermont have the lowest "gun violence" rates in the US. They also have some of the fewest gun restrictions in the country.
Amazing isn’t it?
