Newtown State Representative Mitch Bolinsky has voiced opposition to a bill prohibiting the sale and trade of ivory and rhino horns in Connecticut.  He says it will be hurtful to the state's Antiques Trade, which is already subject to federal regulations aimed squarely at preventing the trafficking of illicit ivory.  He instead voiced support for ending the slaughter of elephants and rhinoceroses at the source, in Africa and Far Eastern countries.  Bolinsky said outlawing antiques will not bring back a single majestic animal and he fears the proposal will have unintended consequences, like creating a black market for counterfeit antique-items.
