Semi-Auto Ban, Permit to Purchase Ammo Among Provisions
by Harold Hutchison
Connecticut will have some of the most restrictive gun laws after a bi-partisan deal was struck. The legislation will include not only a semi-auto ban, but will require registration of magazines holding more than ten rounds.
The legislation is being hailed by gun-control groups. “We have to be satisfied. There are still other things that we want, we'll be back for in later sessions,” Rob Pinciaro, the executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence, was quoted as saying in an AP report.
The bill also features so-called “universal background checks” that will be immediately implemented, and also adds an “ammunition eligibility certificate” that will be required for all ammo purchases.
