Dear Judiciary Committee,
Please oppose H.B. 5448.
This bill turns a temporary order into a permanent one without any concern for due process, with no participation of the accused, or without any independent investigation into the matter. The bill gives no details on counsel for the respondent, the respondent’s ability for their own witnesses or cross‐examine others. The unintended consequence of this bill is that gun owners will no longer seek mental health treatment because of fear of losing their rights.
Support H.B 5390 allowing legal permit holders to protect themselves in a place of worship.
Support H.B 5432 to allow Connecticut residents more options in self-defense.
