CT revises its new gun control laws
 
And of course, they declare some state employees exempt. What a surprise.

The biggest WTFs that were on that list, at least to me, were the DEC and DMV employees. Explain to me please why a DMV employee or a game warden would need such firearms when the general populus are not supposed to own them. It makes no sense to me whatsoever.

On the other hand, CT's law still makes more sense than the UNSAFE Act does in the money grabbing hell hole where I live. At least CT has provisions that are less restrictive for .22s, retired LEOs, and a means of transfer is available for so called "Assault weapons". They have it better than we do here in NY, but not by much.

Everyone living in NY and CT needs to vote with their dollar. The best way of doing so is if you can afford to move out of state, do it ASAP. Take away their tax dollars that are provided to them by you, and give them to a state that respects your 2A rights. I recommend Vermont and Pennsylvania to the residents of CT and NY. Get out if you can.

A .22 rimfire is an "assault weapon" in CT if it has a flash supressor and detachable mag? What a screwed up state.

Here in MA it's considered one if it has three features. A 10/22 with an Archangel stock is illegal in MA, if you look up the definition of BS in the Oxford dictionary that is the definition.

New York is the same way. It's not about it being used in combat or by the military. The laws are all about how "scary" it looks. i would worry a lot more about that 7.62 MM bullet coming out of a Mosin Nagant that will blow through a cinderblock wall than if someone has a pistol grip and flash hider on a 10\22. but hey, that's just my opinion on it.

The gun is no more deadly with the pistol grip, and contrary to what they say it is harder to fire from the hip with a pistol grip.

Come to Florida. If you can, bring your maligned gun manufacturers. If you can't bring them, come anyway. we are 1,000,000 plus strong concealed carry holders, and will welcome you.

You're dealing with liberals.

Canada has hundreds of prohibited firearms that were added in the 90's. They were selected by some of our then-Liberal Party federal cabinet ministers sitting around a table with gun catalogues picking out all the scary-looking ones. That's an honest-to-Gawd true story.

There's no sense in it.

..and there in lies the rub. These policies are driven by persons (some of whom have heavy private security at tax payer expense) who have NO knowledge of the subject at hand... and do NOT bother with getting information from those that do. They feed upon the fears of the public fostered by an ever increasing media bias that also profits greatly by fueling said fears. :mad: ....and WE (the law abiding gun owners who haven't done anything wrong) pay the price in the short run... while the country pays the price of lost civil liberties in the long. The one question no one is asking is "Why do areas of the country with the most lax firearm laws have fewer (if any) of these incidents..??? Meanwhile in Chicago, New York, California and District of Columbia....???"
