Connecticut Act Now: Good gun safety bills move to Senate

student protest

Three good safety bills passed the Connecticut House. Now they move to the Senate for their vote (the week of 5/20). Of course, the NRA objects to the inconvenience all three would cause and urges their members to oppose these bills. To citizens desiring better firearm gun regulations, support these bills right now by contacting your state Senator.

The Bills

👍 House Bill 7218 would require lockup all guns whenever there is a minor present.

👍 House Bill 7219 would outlaw homemade guns, selling or giving away guns with no serial number, and requiring some detectable metal be added to plastic guns.

👍 House Bill 7223 would require handguns left in a car be in a locked safe.
