With so many reports across the state for varying, annoying and extra requirements beyond those specified by law, the application process for a permit to carry pistols and revolvers in CT can be a long and discouraging process. And it shouldn’t be. We have an opportunity to change this TODAY!

HB 5245 AN ACT CONCERNING THE APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR A TEMPORARY STATE PERMIT TO CARRY A PISTOL OR REVOLVER

Has achieved Joint Favorable status from the Public Safety and Security Committee.  See bill status here.

However, this does NOT mean the bill has passed. In fact I met Senator Joan Hartley, co-chair of the committee at a recent meeting in my town and when I asked about the bill she expressed doubt that it would pass a floor vote. So, if you want to see this bill pass; if you want to see applicants no longer be asked for “extra legal” requirements like interviews with your boss, credit checks and hold harmless agreements for any repercussions that an applicant may be subject to, you need to CALL, not e-mail, but CALL your State Representative and urge SUPPORT for HB 5245. Find your State Representative here. If you have any questions, please feel free to email steve@ctsas.info
