From the Hartford Courant — Bill Banning Large-Capacity Ammo Clips Draws Heat At Hearing
The money quote:
“This bill is nothing more than a knee-jerk reaction to a terrible incident in Tucson, Ariz.,” said Leonard Benedetto, vice president of the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, which has more than 1,300 members. “I am a law-abiding gun owner with no criminal record, yet this bill is trying to turn me into a criminal.”
This knee-jerk legislation has been proposed and knocked down in a number of states since the shooting of U.S. Representative Gifford in Arizona. I’m relieved that there’s been such push-back on this, but we can’t stop paying attention, because our opponents are relentless.
