Just an FYI....and AW ban is already in effect in both New Jersey and Connecticut. Additionally magazines with a capacity > 10 rounds are prohibited in CT and > 15 rounds are prohibited in NJ.
In both places permits are required to own/purchase handguns, while I haven't heard of the CT requirements. The NJ process I've heard is fairly painful, i.e. 6+ months to get a permit, references required and the police call up the references.
Now the question is what impact all of those regulations had on events like this....
"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a t*rd by the clean end"
