Connecticut: March 16th Hearing & Lobby Day Postponed

Dear Connecticut NRA Member:

Monday’s public hearing and Lobby Day have been postponed, with a future date to be determined, due to public health concerns. Please check the committee website and Connecticut Citizens Defense League website for updates. Previous alert below:

*****

On Friday, March 13th, the Joint Committee on Judiciary will hold a public hearing on House Bill 5448. This extreme “red flag” bill will further erode citizens’ due process rights, which are continually under attack in Connecticut. The hearing will begin at 10:00 AM in Room 2D of the Legislative Office Building. Please submit testimony to the Judiciary Committee at judtestimony@cga.ct.gov. Also, contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 5448 by clicking below.

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League will also be hosting a Lobby Day on the same day as the hearing to rally members and Second Amendment Supporters against House Bill 5448. If you are able, please attend CCDL’s Lobby Day and urge members of the Joint Committee on Judiciary to OPPOSE House Bill 5448. 

House Bill 5448 transforms a presumably temporary order into a permanent one without any concern for due process or any independent investigation into the matter. It removes the one-year duration of orders and makes them indefinite. It will also remove the ability of respondents to transfer firearms to an eligible third party (i.e. a friend or family member) for safekeeping. This bill also gives judges unilateral authority to strip a person’s constitutional rights without participation of the respondent in the court proceedings. Simply put, HB 5448 will strip away an individual’s right, based on mere third-party suspicion, to possess a firearm before they even get to argue their side in court.

Again, please submit testimony to the Joint Committee on Judiciary and contact its members to OPPOSE House Bill 5448. Testimony can be submitted to judtestimony@cga.ct.gov

Stay tuned to your inbox and the NRA-ILA website for more updates on Connecticut’s 2020 Legislative Session.
