A few hours ago the House passed SB1160 AN ACT CONCERNING GUN VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND CHILDREN’S SAFETY, after the Senate passed it last night. Governor Malloy will sign it into law at noon today. At that point CT will have the most unconstitutional gun laws in the entire country. We’ll have more later on exactly what this will mean for gun owners. From listening to our legislators in Hartford discuss this, even THEY don’t know yet. But then, how could they be expected to? The bill was 138 pages long, and they didn’t even get to see it until a few hours before the sessions started.
I’ll also post more about some of the heroes and zero’s of all this. There were some real shining stars from both political parties. Some were not even gun owners themselves, but they understood the impact this bill would have on both their constituents and the Constitution.
Thanks to everyone who called, wrote, emailed, and showed up in Hartford. Your hard work was noticed. This is not the end, it is just the beginning of our fight. As mentioned we’ve been taking donations to help fund a legal challenge, and we will be doing just. We’re in this for the long haul, to protect the rights of not just current gun owners in CT, but future ones as well.
