SB650 – Looney/Coleman Amendment

Yesterday state senators Martin Looney(D) and Eric Coleman(D) introduced an amendment to Senate Bill 650, which we’ve talked a lot about. The 24 page amendment basically replaces the original SB650 in it’s entirety. It’s going to take some time to analyze everything, but one change jumps out right now. “The department’s determination not to reinstate any such permit that has been revoked may not be based solely upon the issuance of such expired ex parte order.”
That can be read a few ways, but my gut feeling is since it’s coming from staunch antigunners Looney and Coleman, it’s not good. I’ll include the changes in context for comparison:

Original version
(d) If a state permit or temporary state permit for the carrying of any pistol or revolver is revoked because the person holding such permit is subject to an ex parte order issued pursuant to section 46b-15, as amended by this act, or 46b-16a, upon expiration of such order, such person may notify the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection that such order has expired. Upon verification of such expiration and provided such person is not otherwise disqualified from holding such permit pursuant to subsection (b) of section 29-28, the department shall reinstate such permit.

New version
If a state permit or temporary state permit for the carrying of any pistol or revolver is revoked because the person holding such permit is subject to an ex parte order issued pursuant to section 46b-15, as amended by this act, or 46b-16a, upon expiration of such order, such person may notify the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection that such order has expired. Upon verification of such expiration and provided such person is not otherwise disqualified from holding such permit pursuant to subsection (b) of section 29-28, the department shall reinstate such permit. The department’s determination not to reinstate any such permit that has been revoked may not be based solely upon the issuance of such expired ex parte order.

  1. If this temporary restraining order law passes, or any temporary restraining law passes without due process it is my opinion that blood will start to flow; only the blood that flows may begin in Hartford. I could be wrong. These law makers are out of control and do not in any way represent “the people”.
    Thank you, Chris for the update. I hope this law or any law like it is voted down. The stakes are much too high.

  2. If these temporary restraining laws do pass someone needs to conduct a thorough investigation to find out where the money is coming from and form a direct link so these corrupt officials can be prosecuted and put in jail. Anyone remember “Watergate”. Bernstein and Woodward, two newspaper reporters, did manage to follow the money. Unfortunately, it led to the resignation of a President. We need to do a Bernstein and Woodward. Volunteers? Any idea where to begin?

    • Bloomberg is funding much of the gun grabbing legislation in the Nanny states, and/or wherever it is allowed by traitor politicians who card more about their selfish desires, rather than loving their country, and representing Constitutional principles.

      • Paul Patriot: Unfortunately, I have to agree with you. Bloomberg and Malloy have a lot in common. They are both from NYC. Malloy needs to be sent packing to NYC where he belongs.

    • As a retired state employee and a former union steward (okay– you can tar and feather me after the meeting) I have always maintained that the state is the biggest violator of its own rules and regulations. Regardless of party in power, it still worked the same.
      So what part of “shall not infringe do they not understand?”. Answer: ” The meaning.” Malloy and his Political Machine who are no doubt subsidized by the likes of Michael Bloomberg will not stop till all our guns are seized.

  3. I would be more interested in having attended the secret meeting that was held that produced this new abortion. But alas, we are just lowly citizens, Art. III Sec. 16 of our state constitution? Does not exist. And Pete is right …. we don’t need no permits anywho. Its a scam.

    • Malloy and his Political Machine would never allow anyone to know their secrets. The Hartford Courant has been after Malloy to be more transparent but he has by his actions staunchly refused.

  4. They have grabbed some one’s guns and they are not giving them back. No matter if the original excuse no longer exists or never did. We should propose a law creating a phone number where anyone can call anonymously and report a person for possessing fire arms and they make you nervous. We cant take a chance on the time for a hearing or the judge might fail to find the right way. Make the anonymous call and that’s it, the guns are removed. If the citizen wants them returned he can simply request a full investigation into his history since the age of 13 by a special team appointed by the governor. If they find no possible chance of a fire arm being misused, the citizen can pay a fee of $100 per gun, $20 per magazine and $2 per bullet and within 18 months they will be made available for him to check them out of the Connecticut Gun Depository. He would be able to check them out for 6 hours once a week for a probationary period of 5 years. After that time they would be allowed in his home, subject to a surprise inspection 24 hours a day of course.

    • Bill: Your summary sounds about right. It would not be a surprise if that’s exactly what Malloy and his Political Machine eventually do. These new anti gun proposals need to be stopped dead in their tracts and voted down. They are taking away our guns one piece at a time and will not stop until no one but the police and military are allowed guns just like pre-war Nazi Germany. (No joke) Gun owners will end up at Camp Malloy just like the Jews in Nazi Germany.
