QUALIFICATION TO POSSESS FIREARMS OR AMMUNITION
I, the undersigned, have been notified that the Lautenberg Amendment to the Gun
Control Act became law on 30 September 1996. The amendment makes it a felony for
any person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence to
ship, transport, possess, or receive firearms or ammunition. Transfer or sale of firearms
to persons with a qualifying conviction under the amendment is also a felony. The
Lautenberg Amendment applies to all members of the Armed Forces of the State of
Connecticut.
For purposes of this Amendment, the following definitions apply:
Firearms and ammunition – includes all military issue and privately-owned weapons.
Firearms and ammunition does not include major weapon systems and crew-served
weapons, such as tanks, missiles or aircraft. There currently is no exception in the
Lautenberg Amendment for military personnel engaged in official duties, included
members serving in hostile fire areas.
Domestic violence – includes any crime in which the convicted offender was at the
time of the offense either a current or former spouse, parent or guardian of the victim; a
person who had a child in common with the victim; or a person who was cohabitating or
did cohabitate with the victim as a spouse, parent or guardian.
Crime of violence – is any offense that included the use or the attempted use of
physical force, or threatened use of a deadly weapon.
Conviction – includes convictions by either a civilian court or by a special or general
court-martial. Summary court martial convictions, non-judicial punishment, and deferred
prosecutions in a civilian court are not considered convictions for purposes of the
Lautenberg Amendment. For a conviction to qualify under the Lautenberg Amendment,
the offender must have been represented by counsel or knowingly and intelligently
waived the right to counsel. If the offender was entitled to have the case tried by a jury,
the case must have been tried by a jury or the offender must have knowingly and
intelligently waived the right to a jury trial. Additionally, the amendment does not apply
to a conviction that was expunged or set aside, or if the offender was pardoned for the
offense or had his or her civil rights restored.
Members identified as having a qualifying conviction are not eligible for missions
requiring possession of firearms or ammunition.
All members with qualifying convictions may not be appointed or elected to leadership,
supervisory or property accountability positions that give them access to firearms or
ammunition.
Additionally, members with qualifying convictions may not attend any
training or education in which instruction with individual weapons or ammunition is part
