Bills Violating 2nd, 14th Amendments On The Move In The “Constitution State”

posted on April 17, 2015

The Connecticut Judiciary Committee has passed two bills that seek to undermine citizens’ Second Amendment rights by circumventing the Fourteenth Amendment. SB 650 would require police to serve all temporary restraining orders in which an applicant indicates that the respondent has access to firearms or ammunition, or holds firearms or ammunition permits—and upon serving the order, immediately take “temporary” possession of all the respondent’s legally owned firearms, ammunition and permits.

HB 6848, which also deals with temporary restraining orders, would give respondents 24 hours to transfer all firearms and ammunition to a FFL dealer or surrender them to the Commission of Emergency Services and Protection—with no mechanism provided for these rights or possessions to be restored.

Both bills would allow an applicant to file a temporary restraining order without ever having to go before a judge, and would mandate that a respondent’s firearms and permits be confiscated without a hearing to determine the merits of the order.
