Assault Rifles in CT

Postby ssrs10 » Wed Oct 01, 2008 2:17 am

Does anyone know if there are any groups actively working/lobbying in CT to repeal the assault rifle ban?

Not sure what You mean about "CT assault rifle ban", there is none anymore; well, a few pesky left-overs, like no "collapsible stocks" Could You be more specific?

Well there is the list of weapons we can't have in Connecticut. I was just wondering if there was any group trying to get those back on the legal side. I would love to buy a Steyr AUG or an AK-47, but those are on the list. Perhaps I have my facts wrong?

I haven't, I was just wondering since there seem to be quite a few knowledgeable people on this site.

Granted, there are a lot of knowledgeable people here and I rely on their expertise often. But a question like yours is right up there with other "Serious" topics. Given the wrong info you may end up in the Pokey! A quick call to an area professional will get you immediate, and accurate information. Don't risk a legal mistake when an answer is just around the corner! Just my two cents...

One other thing to mention is: are you talking about a state ban, or a city ordinance? City and State laws are often very different when it comes to this type of weapon and restrictions. I can look up your state laws if you like, but the city laws arent that easy to find online...

These are from the Connecticut State Police web site they detail the laws which I assume are current...? Perhaps they are not. But I don't see how they would not be,

To Tig, Thanks, I took your advice, I just haven't gotten over there yet since I'm going to school in Massachusetts.

There was a gun show here in the Dallas area yesterday and today. I kid you not, the people were in a long line to buy the assault rifles and parts. I've never seen anything like it in all of my gun show travels, and I've been to quite a few.



Everyone you talk to is concerned about the things that Obama says that he intends to do. I think it's getting pretty scary. Everyone is loading up on ammo and guns of every type.
