State Laws to be aware of:
It is the responsibility of attendees to know and comply with all State and Federal Firearms Laws.
CT does have an 'Assault Weapon' Ban that is SIGNIFICANTLY MORE STRICT than the expired Federal AWB.
For example, rifles are banned by name and include the 'Colt AR-15' and 'AK-47', among others. Semiautomatic rifles are also banned by features. Folks, please be careful with this.
For a complete list of banned-by-name rifles and feature restrictions, you may check CT laws here http://www.ct.gov/dps/lib/dps/special_licensing_and_firearms/assault_weapons.pdf
Note: Ct does have a magazine capacity restriction. Several other items are listed above and should be read and understood before traveling into Ct with questionable equipment.
For the new law effective 4/4/2013 go here: http://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/act/pa/2013PA-00003-R00SB-01160-PA.htm
