Oppose: HOUSE BILL 5448 AN ACT CONCERNING A RISK PROTECTION ORDER OR WARRANT
Members of the Joint Judiciary Committee
The current risk warrant laws have met the needs of Connecticut residents, I’m opposed to HOUSE BILL 5448. If passed gun owners will now have to choose between their civil liberties or mental health. Gun owners will not seek out mental health treatment in fear of losing their firearms. This was already an unintended consequence from the law passed in 2013.
