    Hoffman's Legislative Alert - Magazine Ban!

    Connecticut Bill Introduced to
    Ban Possession of All Magazines Over 10 Rounds
    State Police Prepared to Confiscate Magazines from Homes if Passed
    A bill introduced in the Connecticut General Assembly (Raised Bill Number 1094) by anti-gun state Sen. Martin Looney (D) would ban the possession of any magazine (rifle, pistol or shotgun) capable of holding more than 10 rounds. If this bill passes, law-abiding gun owners will have to begin surrendering their magazines by July, or face confiscation by the state police and a felony charge. Again, this proposal would not only ban the sale of these magazines, but would make simple possession a felony. Any gun owner found in possession of any magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds will be in violation of this proposed law, regardless of whether it was legally purchased.

    This draconian measure will also affect non-gun owners as all Connecticut tax payers will be forced to foot the bill for the extraordinary process of having police confiscate -- from law-abiding citizens -- the millions of magazines already in the state.

    Making matters worse, manufacturers including Colt, C Products, Mec-Gar, OKAY Industries and Metalform will be directly affected by this legislation. That means a loss of jobs and tax revenue to the state.

    Arbitrarily limiting magazine capacity and threatening law-abiding gun owners with confiscation and felony charges is beyond the pale. These magazines are utilized every day for home defense and the shooting sports. As part of the 1994 "Assault Weapons" ban, the production of higher capacity magazines was halted. This gun-control strategy soon proved to be a failure. A comprehensive study by the Centers for Disease Control -- hardly a pro-gun entity -- looked at the full panoply of gun-control measures, including this ban, and concluded that none could be proven to reduce crime. Another study, commissioned by Congress, found that bans were not effective since "the banned weapons and magazines were never used in more than a modest fraction of all gun murders."

    NSSF is encouraging all gun owners, sportsmen and hunters to contact their state representative, senator and all members of the Judiciary Committee immediately and urge them to oppose Sen. Looney's magazine ban.

  4. Exclamation Any news ???

    Any news on the magazine ban proposed today?? I hate to say it, but if this magazine ban passes in CT, I think all CT law abiding citizens shouldn't turn there magazines in. Think about it, almost everyone has more than 2 mags over 10rds. That's a lot of good honest taxpayers to put in jail. There's no way that they could fit all of us in prison without letting the REAL criminals, rapists and murderers free. Thinks about how much money that would end up costing to to that. Think about how unsafe CT would become. As for me, I'll be leaving CT to somewhere more gun friendly.

    Keep in mind, for liberal progressives it's all about feelings. If they feel they are doing something good, that's all that matters. They can't think far enough ahead about cost or if it will really do any good. You need to understand that they are makeing a safer world for all of us.
