Bump stock ban takes effect in Connecticut

Kent’s Note: This story comes from the Associated Press
HARTFORD, Conn. — A ban on bump stocks is among a host of new laws taking effect in Connecticut.
Starting Monday, it will be a class D felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine, for anyone to sell, purchase, possess or manufacture a so-called bump stock, a device that enables a gun to fire like an automatic weapon. The new law includes some exceptions, such as for certain military personnel.
The law stems from the October 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead. Massachusetts and Rhode Island have also banned bump stocks.
