The Norwich Bulletin claimed in an editorial today that State Representative Kevin Ryan (D-Montville) intends to take the failed Monvtville discharge ban statewide. While Representative Ryan’s long-standing record in support of law-abiding gun owners would indicate that this would not be the type of initiative he would support, we are still trying to clarify Mr. Ryan’s position on possible statewide hearings and introduction of legislation in Hartford.

Update on California Anti-Gun Bills AB352 and AB2714!

AB352, legislation sponsored by Assembly Member Paul Koretz (D-42), that would require that after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number be microstamped onto the interior surface or internal working parts of all handguns in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted onto the cartridge case upon firing, was defeated in the closing minutes of the session last night. Per AB352, Handguns that did not include their identifying information would be defined as “unsafe,” and their manufacture, sale, and transfer would be a crime. AB2714, sponsored by Assembly Member Alberto Torrico (D-20), is on the way to the desk of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R). This legislation would require that no ammunition (or reloaded ammunition) may be sold in a retail transaction unless the purchaser personally presents evidence of his or her identity and age, as specified, to the seller of the ammunition. Additionally, it would severely undermine California’s state preemption law. Please contact Governor Schwarzenegger today at (916)-445-2841, by fax at (916) 445-4633, and e-mail by visiting http://www.govmail.ca.gov to urge him to protect your Second Amendment freedom by vetoing AB2714.
