RIFLE BUMP STOCKS CLOSER TO BEING BANNED
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – The Connecticut Judiciary Committee passed a bill that would ban bump stocks in Connecticut. Both Democrats and Republicans voted in favor of the bill that would ban the sale of bump stocks or any rate of fire enhancements on guns. Lawmakers called for this bill after the Las Vegas shooting, where the shooter used bump stocks in the massacre. The bill will now go to the House of Representatives for a vote. If the law is passed, it would go into effect on October 1, 2018 and violators would be charged with a class D felony.
