NOTICE – Attention all CSRRA Members & CT Residents 

According to the CT State Police, effective immediately, the SLFU will no longer allow private sales of firearms between two individuals; all firearm sales must be facilitated through a firearms dealer.

As an additional note, the Unit is currently 2 months behind processing pistol permit renewals (as of today they are processing renewals received 07/13/23), so send in your renewals ASAP. “State pistol permit holders are granted a 90-grace period to renew their permit. Permits expired beyond 90 days will not be renewed.

The gun bill that the governor signed in June takes effect Sunday October 1, 2023 and includes:

  • A ban on open carrying. Gun owners may still carry their weapons, but they have to be concealed.
  • The law also expands a ban on AR-15s and other so-called assault weapons passed in 1993 and updated in 2013. AR-15s purchased prior to the bans still can be legally owned, if registered with the police. But the new law closed what proponents called a loophole that allowed the legal sale of now-banned weapons if manufactured prior to 1994.
  • Limits the sale of handguns to three in any one month, increases training requirements for gun permit holders and raises the minimum age to purchase a semiautomatic rifle from 18 to 21, the same threshold as handguns.
  • Bans online sales of kits used to assemble “ghost guns,” firearms that have no serial number and are largely untraceable.
  • Increases requirements for safe storage of guns (all persons not just minors.
  • Sets more stringent bail, probation, and parole conditions for repeat firearms offenders.
