Below is the letter I sent, as I own property in Connecticut, for reference; though it alludes to a few personal events of significance. :

SB 353

I am writing you concerning the proposed bill number 353. This bill proposes mandating microstamping as a requirement of the sale of all semi-automatic pistols after 2011.

It is my expectation that you will veto this bill were it to come to your desk. 

First off, this legislation is just foolish. As it will not accomplish any of the goals stated by it’s proponents to reduce crime.

Most people take less than 30 seconds to figure out how to by-pass this whole scheme.  They’d just file off the micro-stamping.  Easily done. And this is exactly what criminals will do.

And why is this applied only to semi-automatics, when revolvers are the most commonly used firearm by criminals?

All this bill will do, is make it all the more difficult for law abiding citizens to arm and protect themselves and their familes.  In direct violation of the protected rights outlayed both in the U.S. and Connecticut constitutions

“SEC. 15. Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state.”

As someone who on the three occasions he felt the need to call 911. Received zero response from the New Haven police department. Considers impeding in any way my right to defend myself as both reprehensible and morally wrong.

It is my expectation that if this bill were to come up for a vote that you would vote it down.
