Dear Senator Winfield, Representative Stafstrom, Distinguished Members of the Judiciary Committee,
I strongly urge you to oppose H.B. 5448. Currently, the risk warrant is available to anyone at any time with police arriving immediately. It makes no sense for someone to wait till the courthouse opens to file for an “extreme risk” warrant, if someone is so concerned that someone is at “extreme risk” they should act immediately, not the next business day. Do not pass feel good legislation that has no evidence to support it. Oppose HB5448.
Please support H.B 5390 which will allow legal permit holders to protect themselves in a place of worship.
Support H.B 5432 to allow Connecticut residents more options in self-defense.
