Connecticut Gun Registration Bill Introduced
Sportsmen Need to Contact Their Representatives Today to Stop This Bill
2/3/11

A bill introduced in Connecticut would require all firearms in the state to be registered.

House Bill 5800, introduced by Representative Toni Walker (D- New Haven), would require newly purchased firearms from dealers or from private sales be registered with the Department of Public Safety within 10 days of purchase. All currently owned firearms would also need to be registered within 10 days of the bill going into effect.

Additionally, owners would be required to renew registrations on their firearms every five years and would have to report if a firearm was sold, lost, or stolen.

"Gun registration is the first step to taking away your right to own guns," said Rob Sexton, U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance vice president of government affairs. "Sportsmen and all guns owners must educate elected officials regarding the fundamental right to keep and bear arms. This bill needs to be stopped."

Take Action! Connecticut sportsmen need to contact their state representatives today and urge them to oppose House Bill 5800. Tell them there is no justification to require guns to be registered with the state. To find your state representative's contact information, please visit www.ussportsmen.org/LAC.

I guess its painfully obvious that stopping crime is NOT the agenda.

Boating accidents, as tragic as they are, are kinda unavoidable.
