CT SP and local law enforcement agencies get their wrists slapped by the CT BPFE regularly.
I think CT has a reasonable set of carry laws. A pistol permit is all-inclusive; with a permit you can buy a handgun with no waiting period, take it to the car and load it up, then holster it all legally. I do have a beef with adoption of a "Clinton ban" that outlaws specific weapons. The carry laws are fair.
I pretty much completely agree. The "Assault" weapons ban is stupid.
Why is it reasonable to have to have a "permit"? When I was in Ct (quite a long time ago) it was illegal to carry a handgun anywhere except from the gun shop to your home or place of business without a carry permit. Frankly, insane laws.
What's so insane about requiring a permit to conceal carry a firearm?
I say this because open carry in higher population areas would probably cause issues in the north
What's so insane about requiring a permit to conceal carry a firearm? I think it's a great idea and sifts out the crazies. On the other hand, in more rural areas I think of should be okay to carry outside non concealed. I say this because open carry in higher population areas would probably cause issues in the north. Seeing as my brother got the SWAT team called on him for shooting a BB gun in the field near our house just shows how tight lipped we are about guns...you know, the things we fought with for our freedom! That was a bit of a sidetrack, but still.
