Connecticut: "Show Your Papers" Petition

House Bill 6001 would require the holder of a handgun carry permit to present the permit to law enforcement upon request; and House Bill 6200 would require the holder of a handgun carry permit to present the permit to law enforcement on request if the handgun becomes visible.

The Fourth Amendment allows police to stop and briefly detain a person to investigate only if the officer has a reasonable suspicion, supported by articulable facts that criminal activity is occurring.  This is why Connecticut law requires that officers must have a “reasonable suspicion” that a crime is being committed before they may request proof of a permit.  These bills infringe on the rights of those who choose to exercise their Second Amendment right to Keep and Bear Arms, while doing nothing to deter criminals.

Sign the petition and keep your Fourth Amendment Rights intact!

    Malloy will not leave legal gun owners alone until no one has a gun. The proposed 300$ renewal fee is over three hundred percent increase from the currant rate and will force some people not to renew, pretty sad that uncontrolled spending put tax payers in this position it has to stop.

    Do not infringe on my rights.

    Gov. Malloys new proposal to raise permit fees is not the way to fix his absurdly mismanaged bugdet. Another leftist display of hatred toward responsible permitted gun owners.
