Default Assult Rifle Law.

I was reading a post on a UK forum regards the law on assault rifles.

Quote:
The Bushmaster / Colt AR15 are already banned in the state of Conneticut / Sandy Hook So how did she (his mother) get hold of one and she was seen teaching him on a range?


Maybe someone on the forum could say if the above statement is true regards the assault rifle law in Connecticut. PS Was the rifle legally owned. ?

I don't know the specifics of CT's many gun laws, but the firearms possessed by Lanza's parents were legally owned and registered.

The bushmaster was legal. I think the Colt is not because the 1994 law banned it by name.

His parents were divorced. His father and brother lived in NJ.

Bushmasters were legal as long as they complied with the restricions on features.

Colt is banned by name in CT unless it was in the state prior to their AWB. (Odd since Colt is a Connecticut business).

Sad thing is the Libs would have probably been perfectly fine with that. It makes as much sense as the rest of the ban guidelines.

Its legal. all rifles that people own and the 20 30 rd mags, on the ban are grandfathered in. They need to be registered. No one after 4-3-13 can buy one, gift, trade, or tranfer one. Its stupid but it could be worse. Like i said before im out of this state friday and my guns have already been sent to family near my new house.
