Once again an anti-gun politician has proven to know next to nothing about a gun bill that he signed into law, all while promising it would make our world a safer place to live in.
Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy proved that he not only doesn’t’ understand his new gun law, but he is also giving out free legal advice that could put someone on jail.
On a local radio program someone called in asking the governor if it would be legal to carry two 14-round magazines limited
“First of all what you have to do is disclose,” Malloy told the caller. “There’s a way to disclose that you have them and you’re grandfathered in. So, that’s how our law works in Connecticut. You don’t lose the right to have them; you just have to say that you have them.
“‘Hey, I’m Joe. I’ve got two of these,’ and that’s it,” Malloy continued. “So the limitations that you’re fearing aren’t necessarily in our bill. They are — I think you’re referring to New York’s law, quite frankly, and New York has a different set of laws than we do.”
“The Governor is mistaken,” CCDL warned. “The law he signed … back in April does indeed prevent someone from carrying a so-called ‘large capacity magazine’ even if it is properly declared, and absolutely limits the number of bullets to 10.”
Connecticut’s law requiring a magazine be “within” the firearm “limit[s] the number of declared ‘large capacity magazines’ one is able to carry, along with the number of bullets it can contain” CCDL explained “For the governor’s statement to be true you would need to carry multiple guns or find a gun [that] holds two or more magazines.
CCDL President Scott Wilson told Gun Rights Examiner. “I can only hope that Governor Malloy got a clue as to how convoluted and difficult this new law is after making the statement he made on the radio.”
“There is a serious risk that comes with severe consequences for gun owners that run afoul of the law unintentionally,” Wilson added. “The Governor should be aware that lives of good people may be ruined over this.”
Ammoland was quick to point out that the law the governor signed does prevent someone from carrying a “large capacity” magazine even if it is declared.
The gun bill stated this:
“Pursuant to a valid permit to carry a pistol or revolver, provided such large capacity magazine (A) is within a pistol or revolver that was lawfully possessed by the person prior to the effective date of this section, (B) does not extend beyond the bottom of the pistol grip, and (C) contains not more than ten bullets.”
Ammoland went on to say, “By requiring the magazine be “within” a pistol or revolver you are limiting the number of declared ‘large capacity magazine’ one is able to carry, along with the number of bullets it can contain. For the governor’s statement to be true you would need to carry multiple guns or find a gun the holds 2 or more magazines.”
“The Governor and Legislators were in such a rush to pass SB1160 they did not even hold public hearings, denying citizens their due process. Maybe if Governor Malloy had given the people, you know, those of us he called the “fringe of the fringe” a chance to speak about the bill, we could have pointed out issues such as this.”
