I cant answer that. It was not specifically discussed. However given the fact that new legislation was discussed, what do you think? My money is on others being banned, and the further transfers of prebans will be specifically prohibited.

All pre-bans? including non-list ones?

Typically for many bills that are enacted they take effect either (I think) July 1 or October 1 or something along those lines. Certain emergency laws may take effect immediately like SB 1160 did.

I'm of the same view. If there are any firearms you want. Buy them before the start of the next legislative session. Chances are high that the legislature will go full rere and introduce a pile of anti rights bills aimed at banning as many guns as they can.

Unfortunately, this sounds exactly like what we can expect in CT....

I thought some lawyer (or someone) somewhere explained that the state couldn't remove the preban statute since it would constitute an actual full gun ban on certain classes of firearms. One that would be easy to overturn (perhaps at an earlier time).

They've had a number of opportunities to remove the preban statute when they "repealed and replaced" it and haven't done so. I have to think (probably wishful thinking) there is a legal reason they haven't done so. That OLR has advised them behind closed doors not to remove the preban statute. Probably wishful thinking.

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.

I think they are going to go after features with some legal mental gymnastics.

My take on that is redefining pistol to be anything without a stock basically making others in "assault weapon" class pistols, I don't think you mean features as in what you think?

No need for reading between the lines in UK.  Y'all are lucky they haven't listed celebrating Christmas as a hate crime.... yet.

I don't want to give them any ideas, but they are not so stupid as to go after a "class" of firearms.
