Raised Bill SB1094
Yesterday was a very busy day for gun owners in Connecticut. ANTI-GUN Sen. Martin Looney introduced Bill SB1094.
This bill will ban the possession of ANY magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds.
If this bill passes, law-abiding gun owners will have to begin SURRENDERING their magazines by July, or face CONFISCATION by the state police and a FELONY CHARGE.
This proposal not only bans the sale of these magazines, but would make possession of one a FELONY.
Own a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds, TURN IT IN or BE CHARGED WITH A FELONY!
Yes, you read that correctly!
