- Q and A
Proposed House Bill 6200:
This bill would require individuals openly carrying a firearm to produce their permit if their firearm is visible and if requested by a law enforcement officer.
(Right now, officers can only ask to see the permit if they have “reasonable suspicion” of a crime).
CAGV Recommendation: Support this bill
Proposed Bill: Permit & Certificate to Carry a Firearm Reciprocity
This bill would allow holders of other states’ permits “with similar standards” to conceal carry weapons in Connecticut. The standards have not been specified.
(Without national standards for gun permits and 24/7 access to out-of-state permit information, law enforcement would have no way to verify whether the permit was valid and whether the gun owner is carrying legally).
CAGV Recommendation: Oppose this bill
