Conn. Governor Malloy and his Gun Politics

I guess that Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy must have missed us. And by “missed us”, I mean he missed making up stuff about us or either pretending he doesn’t know much about the firearms industry that has such a significant presence in his state or is so uneducated about federal and state law that it […]



Let’s Get the Facts Right and Concentrate on Criminals Who Use Guns

Last week in our headquarters state’s largest newspaper, Ron Pinciaro, the leader of the anti-gun group Connecticut Against Gun Violence, authored an op-ed, “Stop In-State Gun Trafficking to Criminals,” Although the space that the Hartford Courant allowed us was short, we did respond to the inaccurate and misleading essay. Here’s what we would have said […]



California Ammo Ban A Sign of the Next Wave of Gun Control

It hasn’t been the best year for those who would restrict our Second Amendment rights.  After starting the year talking about hastily passing bills to drastically curtail law-abiding Americans’ Second Amendment rights, the anti-gun movement fell flat when the Senate shot down the Bloomberg/Obama anti-gun agenda. While some individual state legislatures passed anti-gun laws, those […]



NSSF Files Suit Alleging Process Used to Pass Gun Regulations Violated Connecticut Statutes and Constitution

The National Shooting Sports Foundation today filed suit in federal court for the District of Connecticut alleging that Gov.

Most legislators had little time to even read the 139 page bill. In the enacted law, […]



Connecticut Gov. Malloy’s Double Standard on Firearms

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy is trying to have his cake and eat it too. On one hand, Malloy is pushing hard for a gun-control package that would limit magazine size and ban semi-automatic firearms – both measures that would make products manufactured by Connecticut’s gun industry illegal to own in the state where they were […]



Ahead of Conn. Forum on Gun Control, O.F. Mossberg’s Joe Bartozzi Pens Op-Ed

The City of Hartford, Connecticut’s two most legendary residents have to be Mark Twain and Samuel Colt. So, it seems appropriate that on Friday, March 22, a public forum on gun control will be held at the historic Mark Twain House. On the dais will be Joe Bartozzi, senior vice president and general counsel of […]

NSSF Issues Statement on Connecticut Legislative Proposals

NSSF issued the following statement today: The firearms industry has a long history in Connecticut and to this day has a sizeable economic presence and workforce in the Constitution State. We are disappointed therefore that the General Assembly’s Task Force could not reach a bipartisan agreement on proposals to prevent future violence involving the criminal […]
