Connecticut HB 5345 - "Ethan's Law"


That sections 29-37i, 52-571g, 53a-217a and 10-18b of the general statutes be amended to provide that any firearm, whether loaded or unloaded, needs to be safely stored when a minor up to eighteen years of age, rather than sixteen years of age, may gain access to such firearm, that if a person fails to safely store a firearm, such person shall be strictly liable and criminally negligent in the case of an injury or death caused by a minor up to eighteen years of age, rather than sixteen years of age, and that the State Board of Education shall, rather than may, develop a firearm safety curriculum guide for students.
