The One Shot Wonder

Yes, Anti-Gun Legislators really are this stupid:

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
That the general statutes be amended to establish a class C felony offense, except for certain military and law enforcement personnel and certain gun clubs, for (1) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate, transport, possess or use any gun except one made to fire a single round, (2) any person to fire a gun containing more than a single round, (3) any person or organization to receive from another state, territory or country a gun made to fire multiple rounds, or (4) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate or possess a magazine or clip capable of holding more than one round.
Statement of Purpose:
To reduce the use of guns for criminal purposes.
Any questions as to whether their goal is 'safety'?

One ponders: How can this achieve the stated objective of 'reducing' the criminal use of guns, when in fact it is creating an immensely VAST swath of NEW crimes to be committed with guns?

Given the number of new criminals created every year through the simple act of criminalizing things that were perfectly legal before, it astounds me that we've manage to see ANY reduction in 'crime rates' over the last 30 years or so, let alone the not-insignificant numbers we've seen.

How nice of this idiot to drive the Fudds right into our arms. Every double barreled shotgun is now to become a "crime gun," just by virtue of being owned by a private citizen.

+1 on Kurt... And don't forget lever actions, and Winchester/Remington bolt actions...

Actually, that law is worded poorly. It says: "...any gun except one made to fire a single round..."
That means a disposable, nonreloadable gun in my mind.

So, this legislator wants to outlaw Colt, Ruger and Mossberg, all of which are headquartered in Connecticut? What a brilliant idea!

Wait...aren't LAW's disposable one-shot-wonders?

So... I can have a M1857 12-Pound "Napoleon," but not a Bond Arms .410 shotshell Derringer. Seems legit.

I wonder how this is going to play with the residents of Lexigton and Concord.

Sheesh, Back in the day when I was shooting skeet for fun. I used to borrow a 12ga Stevens single and shoot doubles! Right fine gun it
was too.

Their brains are on fire.

+1 DiveMedic.
Constitutional/"common use" arguments notwithstanding, the spirit of this proposal may be to make it harder to fire multiple rounds, but the written law is what's used in court, and there's NOTHING to stop a malicious prosecutor or activist judge from interpreting it to include Grandpa's old single-shot rifle, which has hundreds of rounds through it and is still going strong. Or even a Revolution-era musket, fired countless times in the fight for the freedoms this law tramples.

Well as much as I love my single shot rifles, and I have 3 of them that aren't black powder powered, there's just no way that this moron can be serious. As others have already said, this will drive the Fudds into the activist camp as well as those that simply prefer self-loading rifles. Good!
