There was a poll on news12 about it. I was expecting the commiect sheeple to be ok with the tax increase on gun permits but 90% voted No - They do not like it.

That's because so many other things could be affected by this increase... It would be open season for all permits and licenses throughout the state. The sheep are also so stupid though that they probably bought the NY prices being high as a comparison when NY has a higher crime rate and some of the most restrictive laws which fail to prove anything.

There is a press conference at the capital (LOB) tomorrow at 11:00.


This "MAYBE"  streamed live @ 11am 02/17/17 on CTN as a request was put in for it.

It was streamed live and was well done. 

It appears that Dan and his gang are just making things up as usual. 

  They say they are trying to get in line with neighboring states and use New York City as their reason.   
  Then they say it costs more to process the permits than they are taking in but can't provide anything to document that.
  It was the ONLY fee they want to increase but claim it is not being done to get back at gun owners.

Note : Making things up = lying.

LOL at how they choose NYC as the reason for the 400% increase in the permit cost but don't mention that NYC's permit is SEPARATE from NY state's permit which is generally much cheaper and varies by county where its issued. NY state law apparently limits the state permit to $10. NYC currently costs $340 for the license and an additional $87 for the finger prints ($427 total).

Mass: $100
Rode Island: $40
New Jersey: $20
Vermont: $0
New Hampshire: $10 (until new constitutional carry law is enacted)
Maine: $0 (constitutional carry)
Pennsylvania: $19 depending on county.

So currently CT at $70 for new permit is already the second highest in the area for state level permits. If they jacked it up it would be the highest for the state level permit by far compared to surrounding states.

More information about general costs for state carry permits can be found at the following link:

Of course all of this is leaving out the cost of the firearm safety course some states like CT mandate so that's another $100-$150 (or more). And this is all before one then spends money on a firearm.  >:(

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

Maybe Washington sent Malloy the bill for the plane rides he pimped for SH?

It is also on CT-N. 

Doug Dubitsky is my state representative and I frequently let him know I appreciate his efforts on behalf of gun owners in CT.
