|One of the persistent talking points to emerge from media discussion of the horrific mass shooting in CT is the notion that, because CT has some of the most strict gun laws in the country, the shooting demonstrates the futility of legislating against gun violence. The fact is that "strict" Connecticut allows citizens to own an assault-style rifle with a grenade launcher. That's right, even according to Connecticut state law, which The Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence ranks as 5th strongest in the nation, allows for the possession of a semiautomatic assault-style rifle with a grenade launcher, as long as it doesn't also have one of these features:
A folding or telescoping stock;
A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;
A bayonet mount;
A flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor
