I just checked on what Connecticut law says about firearms. Now, I don’t agree with the law particularly. But I did find this:
CHAPTER 943 OFFENSES AGAINST PUBLIC PEACE AND SAFETY
Sec. 53-202a. Assault weapons: Definition.
(1) Any selective-fire firearm capable of fully automatic, semiautomatic or burst fire at the option of the user or any of the following specified semiautomatic firearms: Algimec Agmi; Armalite AR-180; Australian Automatic Arms SAP Pistol; Auto-Ordnance Thompson type; Avtomat Kalashnikov AK-47 type; Barrett Light-Fifty model 82A1; Beretta AR-70; Bushmaster Auto Rifle and Auto Pistol; Calico models M-900, M-950 and 100-P; Chartered Industries of Singapore SR-88; Colt AR-15 and Sporter; …
Sec. 53-202b. Sale or transfer of assault weapon prohibited. Class C felony.
(a)(1) Any person who, within this state, distributes, transports or imports into the state, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or who gives any assault weapon, except as provided by sections 29-37j and 53-202a to 53-202k, inclusive, and subsection (h) of section 53a-46a, shall be guilty of a class C felony and shall be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of which two years may not be suspended or reduced.
So the sale or transfer of the so-called assault weapons was already banned in Connecticut.
And then, and then, and then … They also had gun free schoo;s. Uh huh, they really did, just like the feds mandated.
And then , and then, and then, along came ….
Has it been revealed how the son gained access to the guns? He had obvious mental problems. I’m guessing he took the mother’s guns.How can you stop evil?
I certainly am in favor of keeping guns away from the dangerously mentally ill.
