(PRWEB) April 16, 2014
New York and Connecticut Attorney, Heath D. Harte, released a statement today commenting on the effects of the new Senate Bill 1160 on gun owners.
Among other things, the recently signed bill bans the use of more than 100 firearms, newly classified “assault weapons.”
According to a recent article from The Associated Press (NRA's Quest to Expand Gun Rights Takes It to Court, 4/5/2014), the NRA is currently challenging several provisions of the law in a lawsuit, including its expanded bans on semi-automatic firearms and its restrictions on magazine capacity.
The article also states that the NRA is challenging a law in Connecticut which would require a license to buy a rifle in the state. According to the report, the NRA has spent "tens of millions" of it's $300 million annual budget on lawsuits challenging gun legislation.
Connecticut Attorney Heath D. Harte issued a reminder to gun-owners in the state to keep themselves informed about the new legislation, which could possibly have legal implications for some gun owners.
“Connecticut residents that own a firearm should be aware of this new bill and its numerous changes to firearms, mental health and children’s safety,” said Health D. Harte. “The bill is an act concerning gun violence prevention and children’s safety. Unfortunately for law abiding firearm owners, the law has been passed and there are immediate implications that can result in felony charges.”
