Connecticut Chief Backs Gun Registry

March 07, 2011  | 

Norwalk (Conn.) Police Chief Harry Rilling testified before the state's Legislature that a proposal to create an offender gun registry would be a valuable tool for law enforcement, reports Norwalk Patch.

The Senate Bill 695 would establish the first such registry in the nation, according to a report at Patch.com. Here's what it would do:

The bill proposed by Looney requires that individuals who are convicted of gun crimes would have to register their photograph and address with the commissioner of public safety either following their conviction or release from incarceration. That information would be retained for four years and would be accessible to local law enforcement throughout the state. Each year the registrant would have to check in with the commissioner and immediately upon an address change. Failing to register would be a criminal act.
