    Connecticut has bans on defined 'assault weapons,' which includes selective fire firearms unless purchased before October 1, 1993, and a limited list of semiautomatic AR, AK, and SKS variants. However, it does not restrict magazine capacity

    Sec. 53-202c. Possession of assault weapon prohibited. Class D felony. (a) Except as provided in section 53-202e (Relinquishment of assault weapon to law enforcement agency), any person who, within this state, possesses any assault weapon, except as provided in sections 29-37j, 53-202a to 53-202k, inclusive, and 53-202o and subsection (h) of section 53a-46a, shall be guilty of a class D felony and shall be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of which one year may not be suspended or reduced; except that a first-time violation of this subsection shall be a class A misdemeanor if (1) the person presents proof that he lawfully possessed the assault weapon prior to October 1, 1993, and (2) the person has otherwise possessed the firearm in compliance with subsection (d) of section 53-202d.

    (b) The provisions of subsection (a) of this section shall not apply to the possession of assault weapons by members or employees of the Department of Public Safety, police departments, the Department of Correction or the military or naval forces of this state or of the United States for use in the discharge of their official duties; nor shall anything in sections 29-37j and 53-202a to 53-202k, inclusive, and subsection (h) of section 53a-46a prohibit the possession or use of assault weapons by sworn members of these agencies when on duty and the use is within the scope of their duties.

    (c) The provisions of subsection (a) of this section shall not apply to the possession of an assault weapon by any person prior to July 1, 1994, if all of the following are applicable:

    (1) The person is eligible under sections 29-37j and 53-202a to 53-202k, inclusive, and subsection (h) of section 53a-46a to apply for a certificate of possession for the assault weapon by July 1, 1994;

    (2) The person lawfully possessed the assault weapon prior to October 1, 1993; and

    (3) The person is otherwise in compliance with sections 29-37j and 53-202a to 53-202k, inclusive, and subsection (h) of section 53a-46a.

    (d) The provisions of subsection (a) of this section shall not apply to a person who is the executor or administrator of an estate that includes an assault weapon for which a certificate of possession has been issued under section 53-202d, if the assault weapon is possessed at a place set forth in subdivision (1) of subsection (d) of section 53-202d or as authorized by the Probate Court.

    The left has only just begun. Right now, they feel justified in lying as necessary to push their agenda. They have a goal in mind and will do anything to accomplish it.

    Regulation > tougher regulation > restrictions > tougher restrictions > banning some guns > banning all guns > demanding people turn them all in > Feds confiscating registered guns > Feds going door to door searching for more guns. And if it goes the way it did when governments did this in the past, the defenseless people are killed by government.

    All states have restrictions against illegally owned assault weapons.

    The loopholes are in the "exceptions" and why these laws don't work.

    I seriously doubt if you have any idea how to interpret this law as you have pasted it here.

    Clearly, somebody forgot to turn it on. I mean, a weapons ban solves all the problems, so if something bad still happened it's because someone forgot to turn the law on.

    The gun banners don't wants to hear this.

    They either cover their ears (or eyes in this case) and chant "Gun Bans Work" to themselves until all thoughts to the contrary are subjugated.

    They have made up their minds...facts are irrelevant.

    Gun bans are a failure. Anyone looked a Illinois? Why would the US want to follow such a failed model??? Illinois is a significant example that when the laws are clamped down on the law abiding citizens owning guns or wanting to own guns, we see an increase in gun violence among those that are not authorized to own guns.
