I’ve been looking back at posts during the past week or so and I really don’t want to write any more firearm posts. My opinion is clear, well thought out and documented. Then some state senator in Connecticut whips out his pen and submits the following legislation.
Here’s Proposed Bill 122 that has been referred to the Committee on Judiciary.
AN ACT CONCERNING RESTRICTIONS ON GUN USE.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
That the general statutes be amended to establish a class C felony offense, except for certain military and law enforcement personnel and certain gun clubs, for (1) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate, transport, possess or use any gun except one made to fire a single round, (2) any person to fire a gun containing more than a single round, (3) any person or organization to receive from another state, territory or country a gun made to fire multiple rounds, or (4) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate or possess a magazine or clip capable of holding more than one round.
Statement of Purpose:
To reduce the use of guns for criminal purposes.
Effectively, this bans handguns – both pistols and revolvers – as well as most rifles and shotguns. It makes it a felony to even posses one. This guy is outright flipping the bird to the 2nd Amendment.
What do you actually say to a person who suggests such a thing? It’s obvious Sen. Edwad Meyer (D-Conn.) from the 12th Senate District along the East Haven/Guilford/Madison shoreline is upset. But it’s also obvious he could care less about your right to defend yourself against evil and tyranny. It looks like he submitted the legislation within the last week, but he does not seem to have the guts to put this news on his website.
Meyer just told you that you have the right to defend yourself with no more than one shot.
If you do not stop the threat, you deserve to die.
Reach out and contact Meyer and let him know what you think. Be nice. Refer him to my posts on the subject here at RVO. Don’t expect him to listen to you or bother to respond.
Sen. Edward Meyer
