And their response has been?

No matter where you go, there will always be some turd that wants to tell you how to live your life.
I have learned telling that type to go screw themselves, this is a Christian state and I enjoy many God given rights sets them back and they usually leave one alone.

I didn't register any semi-auto weapons here in Pa, didn't you do that in Connecticut?
I was gonna give her a old Remington Nylon 66 .22 semi-auto rifle until she told me all the hoops to jump through for a semi-auto .22 rifle

back here in Pa... I would just give it to her, no issues or paperwork.

Hartford is a shithole with ghetto rats everywhere, they even kill each other in the hospital ER.

nothing personal but most of the people I met there at her wedding where elitist snobs who looked down on me when I said about shooting.

I certainly hope your not like that, what I did find funny was anybody from Massachusetts was simply referred to as ( Massholes ).

We done talk of that R word around here, sort of like Valdemart.
North Western Ct is a world of it's own.
I have a 300 yd range on my property and in 45 years here, no problems.
The fact that I shoot at least 3 or 4 times a week may have something to do with keeping the city rats away. At least I like to think so.

good for you sir, we have our own range up back. she did warn of putting gun stickers on vehicles with out of state plates.

said it was a open invitation for the brown shirts in the state police to pull someone over and due a warrantless search ( simply because ) they felt like it.

Now, that's funny.
I have been working hand in hand with our troopers for over 40 years and never even heard a hint of that.
Guess it depends on your prospective and rumors that meet your ears.

Hearing protection from bagpipes? I don't get it.

CT east of the CT River is very red. My neighbor has a range on his 80 acres that is a 20 minute walk through the woods from my house.

In the RARE occasion I meet an anti-gun ass-snob at a social event, after their pissing and moaning, I invite them to come to the range with me. They are taken aback, but some recover enough to accept my invitation, which when the time to go to the range comes up, they have some kind of embarrassing excuse; by I keep asking them. Most of the actually want to go. The rest of them do to know whether to shit or go blind. Either way, I still have fun challenging their misunderstanding.
