Connecticut Bill to Limit Firearms to One Round


How far will liberals push their hostility to our Second Amendment liberties? As far as we let them. If they don’t get sufficient resistance to their attack on “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines, the next step could look something like this actual proposed bill from Connecticut:

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

That the general statutes be amended to establish a class C felony offense, except for certain military and law enforcement personnel and certain gun clubs, for (1) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate, transport, possess or use any gun except one made to fire a single round, (2) any person to fire a gun containing more than a single round, (3) any person or organization to receive from another state, territory or country a gun made to fire multiple rounds, or (4) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate or possess a magazine or clip capable of holding more than one round.

Imagine if Melinda Herman, who was chased into her attic crawlspace with her children by a home invader who finally left under his own power after taking five rounds from her .38, had been limited by some sanctimonious bureaucrat to a single bullet.

Next after this comes the ban on muskets.
