A msg from Ray Bevis @ CCDL

It’s time to start preparing testimony for the Judiciary Committee bills. A public hearing will most likely be the week of March 11th (Monday, Wednesday or Friday). These are the gun bills that will be on the agenda.

S.B. No. 60 AN ACT CONCERNING THE PRESENTATION OF A CARRY PERMIT.
This bill removes the “reasonable suspicion of a crime” from the current statues, and will allow police to ‘Stop and Identify’ the Connecticut permit holders if police see your firearm.

This will redefine an unfinished "frame or lower receiver" as firearm and could also ban the re-assembly of pre-1968 firearms that don’t have serial numbers.

Thanks for the updates.  Got a postcard from the NRA yesterday about the hearings.
