Did Connecticut Just Enact Another Gun Law Without Taking A Vote?

HARTFORD — Connecticut executive officials may be once again ramping up gun control efforts and this time, according to several sources, have apparently gone outside of the legislative process to abruptly halt the sale of so-called “pre-ban assault weapons.”

Sources with knowledge of the proceedings have told the New Boston Post that the new directive is being enacted seemingly overnight, while several gun shop owners have confirmed in off-the-record conversations that they were tipped off by friends in law enforcement and advised to dump their pre-ban inventory. The owners who spoke to the New Boston Post say they immediately sold firearms that met the classification.

The alleged directive follows a series of sweeping gun control legislation passed by lawmakers in the Nutmeg State following the December 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. In April 2013, Gov. Dannel Malloy signed into law legislation that added more than 100 different firearms to the state’s assault weapons ban. A section of the legislation, however, allowed for the sale or transfer of banned assault weapons if they had been manufactured prior to Sept. 13, 1994 — the date that a since expired federal ban on assault weapons took effect.

There are rumors about this, but the CT State Police have not yet said that "assault" weapons made before Sept. 13, 1994 are illegal in CT and can not be purchased or transferred.
