Are BB guns considered illegal firearms in Connecticut?

It's hard to believe gun laws could go that far.

With 169 towns and cities, it's possible that some might prohibit possession of a BB gun by a minors or people under 16. CT State law does NOT prohibit BB guns, even facsimiles of real weapons like AK-47s. Pellet firing air guns that use air pressure are legal.

Under section Sec. 53-206 they are considered dangerous weapons, and require a permit. Permits may require fingerprinting, and felons may not carry BB. Guns. Failure to adhere to permitting laws can result in a fine of up to $500 or a sentence up to 3 years or both.

A BB gun is a firearm. People have been killed with BB guns. As with any firearm, it is illegal for any under 18 to own a BB gun.

BB guns are in violation of state laws if they are carried or transported while loaded. They are still considered to be dangerous weapons and need to be treated accordingly.

Not that I know of. While BB guns are not safe to use, especially near children, they're usually not linked to violent crime. You can contact your local police department and find out whether using BB guns is illegal. BB guns are not the safestto use but I don't think it should be clsssified as violent firearms.

Does anyone have any links to specific laws instead of just saying it is? I would rather read the law for myself.

How will children learn to be responsible with fire arms if parents do not teach them? We learned to shoot with BBGuns as children, and have great respect for their use. Do not presume to punish everyperson for someone's irresponsibility. I will teach my children to shoot, responsibly, and carefully.
