Criminal Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC46906 - State v. Roberts (Carrying a pistol without a permit in violation of § 29-35 (a); “The defendant claims that his conviction for this offense should be vacated ‘[i]n light of’ the United States Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen, 597 U.S. 1, 142 S. Ct. 2111, 213 L. Ed. 2d 387 (2022). Specifically, he argues that the firearm permitting laws in Connecticut place on him an unconstitutional burden that violates his right to bear arms under the second amendment to the United States constitution and subject him to disparate treatment as a non-Connecticut resident (nonresident), in violation of the privileges and immunities clause set forth in article four, § 2, clause 1 of the United States constitution.”)
