Gun Owners Should Be Required To Present Their Permit

March 15, 2017

I am in favor of House Bill 6200, An Act Concerning The Presentation Of A Permit To Carry A Pistol Or Revolver. The legislation would allow law enforcement officers, who may observe a person carrying a revolver or pistol, to ask that person to produce their gun permit. This makes sense for the safety of the general public and the officer, especially in circumstances where police have reasonable suspicion of a crime. I stood with my colleagues and dozens of police chiefs from across Connecticut at a press conference last week.
