Default Connecticut: Package of Anti-Gun and Anti-Hunting Bills Proposed This Week

This is from the NRA. I just thought I would pass it along so those affected would have the opportunity to be heard.

Bob








Governor Jodi Rell (R), State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney (R-28) and State House Minority Leader Larry Cafero (R-142), unveiled a package of proposals that will have an enormous negative impact on Connecticut's hunters, sportsmen and law-abiding gun owners, both economically and otherwise.
House Bill 6371 would double most hunting and fishing licenses and fees and eliminate the Conservation Fund, a fund spent on only wildlife conservation expenditures. Senate Bill 837, simply stated, would double pistols license fees. Finally, Senate Bill 839 wouldtransfer operations of the currently independent Board of Firearm Permit Examinersto the Department of Public Safety. This action, if approved, would take away the autonomyofthe Board and would mean that if an applicant were denied his license he would have to appeal to the very body, the Department of Public Safety,which rejected the application.
Please call Governor Rell and your lawmakers TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose these bills. Tell them that you feel it's unfair of them to balance the budget at the expense of your constitutional rights!

Governor Rell can be reached by phone at 860-566-4840 (Greater Hartford Area), toll-free at 800-406-1527, or email [email protected].
