BEARING ARMS — The time has come to take action.
In the state of Connecticut, two anti-gun bills have passed the Joint Committee on Judiciary and are heading to the House floor for consideration by the full House of Representatives. House Bill 5054 and 5623 are not just infringements on your Second Amendment rights, but on your Fifth Amendment right to due process as well.
These bills would require the recipient of an ex parte temporary restraining order to surrender their firearms to the police or a licensed dealer within 24 hours of being served with an order.
This ex parte order strips the accused of their Second Amendment rights and would be issued by a judge based solely on a brief statement of an accuser before the accused can appear in court to defend themselves against the allegations. Often these orders come with no allegations of criminal behavior.
These bills clearly go against an individual’s right to due process and present a real threat to gun owners across Connecticut.
Take action and contact your state representative in opposition to these bills now at www.nraila.org!
