We were brutalized today. The whole run up really shows how the people no longer control what happens in the houses of power. To use victims of sandy hook as a stump then deliver this as their legislation really is a disservice.
Here is a BRIEF overview of the changes. Clearly there are so many more.
What is now in effect as of the signing this afternoon:
The sale of all guns is now subject to a background check
List of banned military-style assault weapons has been expanded (mine's on there! Score one for me!)
High capacity magazines which hold more than ten bullets are banned (I have 6)
On July 1:
Permit needed to buy ammunition (will be $35 for permit, who knows the requirements will be.)
Permit needed to buy any type of long gun (who knows cost/requirements)
On Oct. 1:
All criminal penalties for criminal possession of firearms double
Mandatory reporting of voluntary mental health commitments begins
On Jan 1, 2014
Gun offender registry launches
Anyone who owns a banned assault weapon or high capacity magazine will have to register with state to keep them.
