Potential Connecticut long gun buyers will have a completely new hoop to jump through starting April 1
Check it out:
In the latest round of new Connecticut gun laws to take effect, those wanting to buy a long gun will need the blessing of the state police starting April 1.
As part of the package of harsh laws enacted following the December 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, the new requirement is only now coming into effect.
Buried inside the massive 140-page bill, it will require those without a concealed carry permit to acquire a “long gun eligibility certificate” from the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (Connecticut State Police) before being allowed to purchase a rifle or shotgun in the state.
