First State Law Change After Sandy Hook - They Want Your Ammo Too

In typical liberal style knee-jerk reaction to the Sandy Hook murders, Connecticut  lawmakers announced proposed changes to the state's gun laws.
The proposal would immediately expand the definition of Assault Weapon under current state law to apply to firearms which show one particular physical trait, as opposed to two, like the presence of a pistol grip beneath the action of the weapon.

And despite the fact that there are perhaps thousands of legal handguns in the state with a greater than 10 cartridge magazine capacity, this proposal would prohibit the sale and possession of any magazine with a capacity of over 10.

The proposal would also call for a 50 percent sales tax on all ammunition, permits would be required to purchase ammunition, and the online purchase of ammunition would be prohibited.

What do you want to bet that the FedGov will see that 50% ammo tax as a good idea and add that into the AWB?

Got ammo?


  1. I won't cover that bet, it's probably written into some legislation already. My guess is this will be "law" by the end of January.

  2. I would not be surprised if they try to limit the amount of ammunition you can purchase also..

    1. Which is why I'm looking into rolling my own. I got the A-Ok from the Mrs. Not that I was asking her for permission but as she is the CFO of the family, she said she wouldn't be opposed to it as it is more economical.

  3. Good luck on the "possession" thing.
