Lawmakers in Connecticut have passed some serious legislation that will allow law enforcement to confiscate guns and ammunition from anyone accused of domestic abuse! 

Suspects would have 24 hours after being accused to surrender all firearms and ammo. That’s insane.

Republican’s efforts to make changes to the bill were defeated. The bill was approved with a 23-13 vote.

The Connecticut Post explains the idea behind the legislation:

The goal is to protect women from the increased lethality at a critical point in a relationship: when they are trying to leave their abusers. About 14 domestic homicides occur annually in Connecticut, half of which are caused by guns.

While 5,000 temporary restraining orders are issued annually, about half result in permanent orders. The bill, which was approved last week in the House, would require court hearings within seven days and if judges decide against extending the orders, weapons would be returned within five days later. Currently, court hearings are held 14 days later.

Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney argued the “possible inconvenience to gun owners” should not come at the “expense of the great danger to victims of domestic violence.”

“That’s why this bill is exactly what we should be doing in this area,” he added.

Though there was some opposition to the bill due to gun rights concerns, the Post reports “there was little evidence of gun-rights activists in the Capitol on Monday.”

“I do believe we have to honor the Constitution, we have to honor the Second Amendment and we have to honor the rights of individuals,” Republican Sen. Rob Kane said.

So what this boils down to is that you will get punished before being proven guilty of committing a crime.

This is an insane bill. It makes no sense. What ever happened to INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY?

 at Young Cons adds:

I guess those are old fashioned notions that our oh-so-wonderful progressive society has moved well beyond.

This legislation will most certainly be abused by the powers that be and there’s little doubt in my mind that many guns will be confiscated due to false accusations.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m all for protecting folks from domestic abuse. However, I don’t think violating the rights of Americans guaranteed under the Constitution is the way to go about it.

Pure insanity…

God Bless.
