Don’t panic. Although the Connecticut State Legislature is always “discussing” new legislation, to my knowledge no “real” bills are actually in the pipeline. That said, members of the legislature have meetings and discuss ideas, and this year – like every other year – gun laws are being discussed.
It’s not like I thought he would eventually become rational or anything. Tom Brokaw is not comfortable walking into an Arizona bar on a Saturday night since the state allows their law-abiding citizens to carry a pistol for self-defense. He states the system is “wide open.” That’s a total lie.
Knee-jerk reaction from the anti-Second Amendment crowd. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) will introduce legislation to create a gun-free zone encompassing one-tenth of a mile around federal officeholders and judges as they move from place to place. If you are carrying a firearm, you won’t be able to get within 1000′ of these federal employees.
Pathetic. Disturbing. Unreal. It’s already totally unacceptable the state of New Jersey severely restricts residents concerning their 2nd Amendment rights, but now a New Jersey state legislator suggests – for $500 per year – the state would reconsider their opinion. They think they can generate tax revenue through the scheme.
And you can responsibly carry a pistol in a bar that serves alcohol, and you can even carry your firearm on college campuses. I thought most of the misconceptions concerning Connecticut state law when it comes to permits and carrying handguns had been squashed, yet some continue to put totally false garbage out there.
Connecticut state law does not allow pistol permit records to be available to the public. Many states do allow this information to be released, and some media outlets – in a drive to increase page views – have published the full databases including private information simply because it’s “public record.”
Just asking. Firearm regulation is always brought to the forefront after a shooting or mass shooting, but a “three-state stabbing spree that left five people dead and 13 others wounded” has curiously not resulted in the demand for the regulation of knives.
Unbelievable. Brooklyn Assembly members Annette Robinson (D-Bedford Stuyvesant) and Darryl Towns (D-East New York), have put forth legislation that would require police officers – when a life is threatened – to shoot for arms or legs instead of center of mass. They mistakenly have replaced reality with a Hollywood movie.
Ignorance. Putting their heads in the sand. Feel good legislation. I’m sick of politicians who cry for more restrictions on firearm ownership by law abiding citizens in the United States. Mexican President Felipe Calderon urged the return of the AWB today, and many in Congress cheered.
Some California residents may think this is a long shot, but an effort is in place to move legislation through the California legislature to make it easier for law-abiding citizens to carry a pistol in the Golden State.
