Why has no one mentioned this about the CT shootings?
#1
Have only been browsing a bit lately but I have been revamping the NRA NO website to include more gun related topics and while doing some research I came across something NO ONE is saying in all this mess.

CT has, and has had an 'assault weapons ban' in place since 1993. It was modeled after the 1989 ban (which eventually became the model for the federal ban). All these people screaming and yelling for a ban that's already in place in that state.

and even more so to the 'assault weapon ban'

Damn I'm curious why no one, including the NRA hasn't brought this out to the media?

Didn't the shooter live in NJ? Of course I wouldn't be surprised if there was a ban there, too....

If I understand correctly, he lived in CT with his mother, his father lives in NJ.

That is how I understood it as well

Reading the law I think a fixed stock A2 style AR without a threaded barrel would be legal in CT, which does jive with the vague media reporting and pictures of "similar firearms" they are publishing.
The law? The law is a human institution...

Oh yeah, you're right....I still had the misinfo they were throwing out there at the beginning in my head.

That information doesn't fit in to the gun banning agenda. You don't actually expect honest and informed reporting, do you?

Yes the AR the kid used was 100% legal to own in CT, it doesn't qualify as an 'assault weapon' per their laws
