AN ACT CONCERNING THE REGULATION OF FIREARMS.

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

Section 1. Section 29-37a of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective from passage):

(a) For the purposes of this section, "long gun" means a firearm, as defined in section 53a-3, other than a pistol or revolver.

(b) (1) Except as provided in subdivision (2) of this subsection, no person, firm or corporation may sell, deliver or otherwise transfer, at retail, any long gun to any person under eighteen years of age.

(2) No person, firm or corporation may sell, deliver or otherwise transfer, at retail, any semi-automatic centerfire rifle that has or accepts a magazine with a capacity exceeding five rounds to any person under twenty-one years of age. The provisions of this subdivision shall not apply to the sale, delivery or transfer of such a rifle to any person who is a member or employee of an organized local police department, the

Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection or the Department of Correction or a member of the military or naval forces of this state or of the United States for use in the discharge of their duties.

(c) On and after April 1, 2014, no person may purchase or receive any long gun unless such person holds a valid long gun eligibility certificate issued pursuant to section 2 of this act, a valid permit to carry a pistol or revolver issued pursuant to subsection (b) of section 29-28, as amended by this act, a valid permit to sell at retail a pistol or revolver issued pursuant to subsection (a) of section 29-28 or a valid eligibility certificate for a pistol or revolver issued pursuant to section 29-36f, as amended by this act, or is a federal marshal, parole officer or peace officer. [(a)] (d) No person, firm or corporation may [deliver, at retail,] sell, deliver or otherwise transfer, at retail, any [firearm, as defined in section 53a-3, other than a pistol or revolver,] long gun to any person unless such person makes application on a form prescribed and furnished by the Commissioner of Emergency Services and Public Protection, which shall be filed and retained by the transferor for at least twenty years or, if the transferor is a federally licensed firearm dealer, attached by the [vendor] transferor to the federal sale or transfer document and filed and retained by the [vendor] transferor for at least twenty years or until such [vendor] transferor goes out of business. Such application shall be available for inspection during normal business hours by law enforcement officials. [No sale or delivery of any firearm shall be made until the expiration of two weeks from the date of the application, and] No such sale, delivery or other transfer of any long gun shall be made until the person, firm or corporation making such sale, delivery or transfer has [insured] ensured that such application has been completed properly and has obtained an authorization number from the Commissioner of Emergency Services and Public Protection for such sale, delivery or

transfer. The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection shall make every effort, including performing the national instant criminal background check, to determine if the applicant is eligible to receive such [firearm] long gun. If it is determined that the applicant is ineligible to receive such [firearm] long gun, the Commissioner of Emergency Services and Public Protection shall immediately notify the person, firm or corporation to whom such application was made and no such [firearm] long gun shall be sold, [or] delivered or otherwise transferred to such applicant by such person, firm or corporation. When any [firearm] long gun is delivered in connection with [the] any sale or purchase, such [firearm] long gun shall be enclosed in a package, the paper or wrapping of which shall be securely fastened, and no such [firearm] long gun when delivered on any sale or purchase shall be loaded or contain any gunpowder or other explosive or any bullet, ball or shell.

Looks like the bidding starts at $35/5yrs for long gun and ammo eligibility certs...until the state realizes it can't pay for its UCHC construction projects, medicaid patients, etc etc...

How is the long gun/ammo eligibility certificate fee not the same thing as a "poll tax"?

Did I just read that right? Magazines with 5 rounds?
As many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual abuse. (Kleck and Gertz, "Armed Resistance to Crime," p.185)
