    What the Heck is going on up there? Maybe the cold weather has frozen their brains.

    I say lets just dig up the state around the border and push it into the ocean.

Passing a law which bans the possession by the general public of any physical object is idiotic on its face, but there's nothing in the Constitution that explicitly prohibits it, except the 2nd Amendment, ironicly.

    A law intended to apply to crimes or events that took place before its passage. The United States Constitution forbids the passage of ex post facto criminal laws, on the principle that it is wrong to punish an act which was not illegal when committed.
    It wasn't illegal to own before the law is passed. That makes it a violation of the Article I Section 10.

    Update: This bill died in committee last week thanks to all those who invested countless hours to show up prepared with comments, and those who wrote letters and emails.

    It should be notes that the only other gun related bill, a hybrid castle doctrine type bill also died in committee.

    Be very aware, that at any time, they can raise or attach this bill to any other legislation.

    This bill has been around so long, that there is no longer a sponsors name assigned to it.

    Well, we here in CT KNOW that it is the unholy love-child of Martin Looney and his crackpot Fed rep idol Rosa DeLauro. However, the fact that there is no name attached to it NOW is even more frightening, as there is no one set of shoulders to take the responsibility.
