    Connecticut bans 100 kinds of guns

    Still stinging from the shooting deaths of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Connecticut lawmakers early Thursday approved what advocacy groups call the strongest and most comprehensive gun legislation in the nation.Gov. Dannel Malloy's office said he would sign the bill Thursday at 12 p.m. The legislation bans some weapons as well as the sale or purchase of high-capacity magazines like those used in theNewtown shooting. The bill also requires background checks for all gun purchases.Malloy's signature will make Connecticut the third state to pass such tough measures since the December rampage in Newtown. New York and Colorado passed gun-control legislation limiting magazine capacity, among other provisions.
    The Connecticut measure adds more than 100 guns to the state's list of banned assault weapons, limits the capacity of ammunition magazines to 10 rounds and bans armor-piercing bullets.While the bill allows current owners of magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds to keep them, it requires those people to register the magazines with the state, and forbids owners from loading them with more than 10 rounds outside their homes or while at a gun range.The legislation also creates the nation's first statewide registry of people convicted of crimes involving the use or threat of dangerous weapons. The registry will be available only to law enforcement agencies.It also requires eligibility certificates for the purchase of any rifle, shotgun or ammunition, and significantly increases penalties for illegal possession and trafficking of guns.It also requires background checks for all firearms sales, including at gun shows, and creates safety standards for school buildings.

    SHALL NOT INFRINGE


    "A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
    President Ronald Reagan

    The court needs to throw this out. If it doesn't our only recourse is the powder box.
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    I'd do a straight up swap to kick them out and make Guam a state, but who would take them?
