An act of civil disobedience? Connecticut gun owners defy new ‘assault weapon’ laws

Anywhere from 20,000 to 100,000 gun owners in Connecticut became Class D felons overnight after failing to register their semi-automatic rifles with the state of Connecticut as required by a hastily passed gun control law last year. The deadline for registration was January 1, 2014, and it is now believed tens of thousands of gun owners chose not to register as an act of defiance.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“This is amazing. Lead story on The Blaze right now: officials in Connecticut stunned by what could be a massive statewide act of civil disobedience,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I want you to remember: This is Connecticut. This is New England. This is provincial. These are not cowboys. These are hardcore liberals for the most part. Even the conservatives are liberals in Connecticut.”

TheBlaze reports:

Police had received 47,916 applications for “assault weapons certificates” and 21,000 incomplete applications as of Dec. 31, Lt. Paul Vance told The Courant.

At roughly 50,000 applications, officials estimate that as little as 15 percent of the covered semi-automatic rifles have actually been registered with the state. “No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps as high as 350,000,” the report states.

Due to the new gun control bill passed in April, likely at least 20,000 individual people — possibly as many as 100,000 — are now in direct violation of the law for refusing to register their guns. As we noted above, that act is now a Class D Felony.

“The law’s in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution,” Pat said. “So who is committing the greater crime here? The [idiots] who passed the law.”

In December, a photo surfaced of hundreds of people waiting in line to register their firearms, and the image immediately drew comparisons to Weimar Germany.

Now it appears, however, that thousands of Connecticut gun owners have chosen to defy orders.

Republican state Sen. Tony Guglielmo told The Courant he spoke to a constituent at a meeting in Ashford, who said some of his friends with semi-automatic rifles are intentionally taking a stand.

“He made the analogy to prohibition,” the lawmaker recalled. “I said, ‘You’re talking about civil disobedience,’ and he said ‘Yes.’”

Guglielmo said he really thought the “vast majority would register.”

“You have a semiautomatic weapon, you know exactly what the law is. There’s no ignorance there,” Glenn said. “There’s no one more responsible than gun owners, honestly… NRA members are some of the most responsible people I have ever met. They know what the law is. They don’t want them in the hand of criminals.”

    The Constitution Gives Americans the Right To Bear Arms…
    It doesn’t even say that Felons cannot own firearms to defend themselves against the Gov’t Tyranny! Newer Laws and Regulations since the Constitution was Ratified make possession illegal in Violation of the Constitution! If someone really wants to kill another person, they will do it with a knife, bat, pipe, golf club, or any other hard item that can cause trauma (Yes some use firearms, but that is not protected by laws because they can buy them on the Black Market anyway… Only Law Abiding Citizens Are Penalized!!!). I don’t want violent criminals to have firearms, but they will use other weapons if they don’t have firearms to harm me or any other person. A Sharp Sword in a Public Place Can Cause Severe Damage To A Crowd of People In A Very Short Amount Of Time (Possibly even more because it doesn’t run out of ammo)!

    True. Not grandfathering people in creates the situation where you are relieving honest, law abiding gun owners of their property after changing the rules.

    What if the new law had to do with cars over 5 years old? For safety, pollution control, and fuel efficiency reasons, all cars over 5 years old must be surrendered to the state for disposal … with no compensation, and no grandfather clause!

    Yeah, that would go over well!

    Connecticut is another state off of my family’s travel list, as is Calif. and New York. And I write the governors of each of those states and tell them: I will not spend vacation dollars there and I will personally step up the efforts of my free state to move businesses away from their state. I know this could punish the good people of those states but it puts pressure on the democrat party machine that runs that state.

    The constitution does NOT give Americans the right to keep and bear arms. It says the RIGHT of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Get the right is god given for self defense. The amendment recognizes the natural right exists and Denys the government power of alter that natural right. Even if the amendment was not there the right to self defense would still exist.

    This number is consistent with conversations I have had with gun owners in the UK and Australia, both of whom passed gun bans in the past. My UK friend estimates that less than half the guns were registered and ultimately turned in. In Australia, less than 15% were turned in. I think Canada was about the same.

    I am with you guys, BUT let us not say we want to kill them, i.e. lynching. Stop all of that trash talk. The socialist copy your comments and show them to the fence sitters to prove we are crazy violent people who should not have guns. Some of you maybe, but I firmly believe the vast majority are responsible honest gun owners. I like to cry “Lynch Them” but I have no intention of needlessly harming anyone. That is what separates us from the socialist. They are willing to imprison or harm people physically or financially. So please stop giving ammunition to the enemy.

    Already did that. Remember, “Cash for Clunkers”? People turned in their old cars for vouchers to buy new ones and then those “vouchers” were “taxed” as income! The idea was to deplete the used car market of inventory and force people to buy new cars from the now nationalized General Motors and Chrysler (now owned by communist Fiat) and make the bailouts appear as a success. By the way, I just bought a Ford since they were the only ones who didn’t take the bait.

  • Lrrpman

    Not only CT, in NY you now need a state issued permit to keep any pistol in your own home, even a musket. Most have not complied but you can’t buy a gun without this. This is beyond the pale and spits in the face of the second A. People who disobey do it for a reason they fear the bloodshed that will happen if the Governor passes confiscation like he would like to do. They do not want to be put in the position of having to kill local police that would be forced to do the task.

  • Anonymous

    Yes they should. But what they will do is make an example of a few (all to be registered Republicans) and give them the maximum penalty/jail time the law allows in an effort to bully the rest of those who refuse to comply into submission. Stand strong, they can’t arrest all of you..

    Glenn – I live in CT. I registered because I didn’t see a need to become an overnight Class D felon – especially when the State knows when I purchased, from who and how much I paid. That said, I’m just as conservative as anyone from a different part of the country. I did not vote for a single one of the clowns pulling the strings in Hartford, I assure you.

  • JamesB

    A major difference between civil disobedience and nullification is whether a law is Constitutional. As this law violates the guarantees protected by the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th & 10th Amendments, the act of not registering is actually nullification, and NOT civil disobedience.

    An example of civil disobedience is speeding in a speed controlled zone where there is no question the speed limit is a duly constituted law and does not infringe on the guarantees in the Bill of Rights, so you ARE breaking the law when you speed.

    In Phoenix the city street speed limits used to be 35mph, thru massive and on going displays of civil disobedience (speeding), the speed limits were changed to 40mph. This resulted in safer streets (more compliance) and less traffic tickets. But if you got a ticket, you paid it and it was kept on your driving record.

    If you intend to protest a law thru direct action or inaction, it’s important to know if you are doing civil disobedience or nullification, as the resulting consequences can determine so much (such as in this case where nullification could result in total loss of gun ownership as it is a felony to not follow the law). You would use a different tact in defending nullification over defending civil disobedience.

    This is not legal advice, see a lawyer for that (as I’m not a lawyer)! It is merely common sense that I’m sharing.

    I have some more good news out of California. San Diego County has a may grant policy with concealed weapons permits. A few gun owners are currently battling with the county in Federal court. How it looks right now, they may win. That would mean the counties in California would have to cite specific reasons for rejecting a CCW application. The reason must be legitimate, like a felony conviction.

    Where is all of the crimials at and why didn’t they register their guns? The only people that register their guns are the honest citizens. If I lived in CT, then I probably would not register my guns until the criminals were all rounded up and their guns were registered. We all know that is not going to happen. Has the robberies gone down and who did it?

  • Anonymous

    Yep! The Weimar Republic passed “strict” registration requirements on all German sportsmen and firearms owners. When the National Socialists were elected to office, it was a simply matter or sending the Gestapo to the local offices for the names, addresses of all firearms owners. Those Germans who were National Socialists and politically reliable, got to keep their guns. Others, lost the guns first and later their lives.

  • David R. Nemirow

    Here is my problem with what has happened, and I am prone to think “Conspiracy”. The state orders the registration of these weapons under penalty of becoming a felon for non-compliance. I think the state knew from the onset that these people would refuse. I think it is what was both expected, and wanted. Try to follow this logic:

    Write this law, the people refuse to obey, they become felons, and WOW! every one of those people who are now felons are banned from ever possessing a carry permit. I fear that that might be the motivating factor behind the bill. Call me perverted, but ever since this Administration demonstrated it’s anti-gun position, I can’t help but be suspicious.

  • Doc Savage

    IT IS CONSTITUTIONAL to required registration. The law does not prevent you from owning an AR 15. People had a choice to register ( become law abiding) or not register ( becoming a criminal). Of course it is subterfuge to claim this will keep people safe and prevent murder. It is just one of the steps to disarm the populous, so that a tyrannical government can control the citizens and take away more and more of our GOD given freedoms. I say GOD because if GOD gave them to me only GOD take take them away. If the government gave it to me , then the government can take it away. Gun control, the attack on Christianity and the Constitution, control of education and the media are just a few examples of the means by which the tyrants are eroding our rights. It is the slow dripping of water on a rock that will wear the rock away. The slow dripping goes unnoticed until there is a hole in the rock. People looking at the hole will never know that the rock was whole at one time. Your grand children will never know that their ancestor were free as they live in an Orwellian new world order. I fear that to may of the Military and law enforcement personnel will support the new tyrannical government. General Betrayus (sic) stated that Hillary will make a GREAT President. The mid term election in 2014 will show us if we have a chance to survive.

Just because some BOZO(s) say(s) I am taking over this nation and now, I am making NEW laws that serve ME and NOW you have to register the guns you bought knowing you did NOT have to register at THAT time, and there was NOTHING they did to warrant someone creating new oppressive laws to watch them squirm under, doesn’t mean that the BOZO is right, nor does it mean that the People will bow down to him. Next thing you know, he will just draft a few laws that say we each have to take a turn wiping his backside for him! Enough is ENOUGH! Mr. “I can do anything I want!” can just go register HIS guns if he wants to and leave US(A) -We the People, alone. We aren’t idiots, and no, this is not a prejudiced act against idiots! We were fine before he got into his ivory tower, and we will be fine when he leaves.

    Thank you airing this segment on your program. We responsible gun owners are fighting this law through a CCDL lawsuit. unfortunately we have lost the first round for a stay against the law, as a judge issued judgment against us stating that “public safety” trumps our rights. There are some of us in CT that are true conservatives who continue to fight against over whelming liberal opposition.

    Lets all go to True the Vote and find out how we can make certain the elections and the countings are all valid and the ballot boxes don’t end up in someone’s HOME between voting and counting, which is where a surprising amount of votes end up- and the “Lost votes” should be followed-up by EVERY voter, to make sure his or her vote was COUNTED! I went to my county seat a couple years ago to ask how I can see my vote to make sure nobody changed it after I dropped it in the mail, and I was told that I will NEVER be able to see my vote again. EVER! The man said. I asked if they are thrown away. NO, he told me. I guess I just no longer have the right to look at MY vote.

    what part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand?
    history repeats itself only now it is Americans like the Tories:
    ” At the beginning of 1777, the war was carried right into Connecticut’s boundaries
    by New York’s royalist governor Tryon’s raid on Danbury. The Patriots had collected a considerable supply of stores there, and British General Howe, before leaving for Philadelphia, determined to have them destroyed. He accordingly placed a force of nearly 2,000 men under Tryon, and in April dispatched him up the Sound with a convoy of twenty-five vessels. They landed at Sauga tuck Harbor late in the afternoon of April 25, 1777, and reached Danbury by a hasty march overland the next day. The British instantly set to work, and by night had burned most of the buildings in the town, except those belonging to Tories, and had destroyed a vast amount of provision s. By the end of the following day they had destroyed the meetinghouse, nineteen dwelling houses and twenty-two stores and barns. “

    And you will understand better why Obama and the democrats

    First they want you to register, then they will confiscate if the time is ripe. History repeats itself. Germany : 1918 Treaty of Versailles restricted gun owner ship. 1920 Law of Disarmament of the people. 1938 German Weapons Act restricted gun ownership even more. Only trustworthy people were allowed to get a permit to own a gun or rifle. NSDAP (Nazi Party) members were exempt and Jews were prohibited from gun possession. So, the government can say who can own a gun. If people think this can not happen here, why do you think Obama said he has a pen and knows how to use it?

  • Dale Wennagel

    Don’t register. If they don’t know they can’t find you and probably the police won’t bother, we hope. Actually much more importantly is the fast one pulled by your federal government regarding you first line of defense a federal invasion – your National Guard. I did not know this but a friend of mine retired cornel US Army, told me that after Hurricane Katrina the Feds complained that the state governments were too slow to respond to the request for National Guard mobilization. As a result, the States and Commonwealths of the United States relinquished control of the National Guard from the State and Governor control to the Department of /defense. There is a new position on the Joints Chief for the Commander of the National guards of all 50 states. what does that mean? If a state refuses to comply with a Federal demand, the Commander in Chief, can order the US Army in to a state to force compliance i.e. don’t want to turn in your legal firearms but the Federal Government wants them, the national guard will go house to house to collect them instead of standing at the state borders to protect the States from Federal invasion. Our founding fathers understood the necessary of the states having the right to protect their citizens from Federal invasion. This is now gone. Now you should be worried. Our Commander now has the power to become a dictator and the arms to back it up. We as citizens only have our our arms.

    Like I said in my post the usual has a difference.

    I was born and raised in Connecticut I love it there. I will always remember fishing on lake Hayward with my Pop. I can smell summertime in Connecticut in my dreams and I will always be connected to New England. I want to be on the Farmington river casting to rising trout. I miss my friends and my family…. But I’m glad I don’t live there now. Taxes and the cost of living are too high and the cause of liberty is to low. I left seeking opportunity and I found it elsewhere. New England was the cradle of liberty. What happened? I always felt proud of the patriot heritage. “Live free or die” “Give me liberty or give me death” It seems as though that spirit is gone and I don’t understand it. If the definition of liberal once again becomes someone who is pro liberty I may return. Sadly I don’t think it will happen in my lifetime. Texas might be the place for me.

  • Anonymous

    I would be one of those who refuses to comply with the law. In the wake of several supreme court decisions upholding the right to keep and bear arms outside the limitations of government oversight, it amazes me that states and the federal government are so desperate to circumvent and flout these decisions. They can attempt it, but it will only work if people comply.

    The constitution is the highest law of the land and the governments (federal and many states) of late have mounted a determined and relentless assault on it. This has everything to do with power and control and NOTHING to do with firearms. I’ve often heard the argument from leftists that this is nothing more than conspiracy theories. Anyone with an IQ higher than 50 knows that the government controls everything it can get its hands on. Case in point – I can legally carry a gun around on my hip, but the federal government, and my state, in their infinite wisdom, have made it illegal for me to purchase or possess a spring loaded pocket knife. I’m not talking about a switchblade. ANY spring assist is illegal to purchase unless you can prove that you are combat oriented military or police.

    All of my knives are spring assist (frankly, the laws are so beyond ridiculous, I simply don’t care). So, technically, I could be arrested for possession of an illegal weapon…for the pocket knife I carry right next to my perfectly legal concealed handgun. I’ve brought this up several times with our state lawmakers. They state that it’s because of “safety”. For some reason, they’re offended when I begin laughing. When I point out that they are far more likely to be harmed by the weapon on my hip than the knife, they don’t know what to say. As I said, it has nothing to do with “safety” or even common sense. It has EVERYTHING to do with control.

  • Rich Cizik

    Spartan you also forgot IDs needed for ACLU ralleys…

    For the longest time I haven’t been able to wrap my mind around the libs debate that presenting ID at the voting booth discriminates (or most of their arguments…) Since I came of age to vote, (Bush vs. Clinton was first election for me) I have always needed to present a photo ID before voting, It was the same going back to kindergarten when I acompanied my mother when she voted. So by their logic Ct has been discriminating against all minorities since the 70′s, but no one has complained…

    Unfortunately there are too many NY & Hollywood escapees in western Ct (mainly Fairfield and Litchfield counties), but there is a large contingent of us conservatives in the rural eastern part of the state, The Connecticut River is basically the dividing line between politics, baseball and living expenses, with islands scattered on both sides. In Ct basically the money is in the western end and the logic is in the eastern end.

    I grew up near the NY border and moved 3/4 the way across the state after college.

    Get your facts straight before you step up on your soapbox. A Constitutional Challenge and a request for Injunction and Summary Judgement were filed immediately after passage of the law. A left-wing Judge, making the most illogical, incomprehensible argument I have ever read, dismissed the case; an Appeal is pending. Not that it will do any good with a close-minded person like you, but read the verdict; the judge contradicts himself on every count, even using the word “infringe” in his own defense of the law. This was an example of Politics from the Bench at its clearest.

    Dale, very frightening thought. I have a Marine and two Soldiers (US ARMY) in my family (my nephews). I haven’t had the chance to ask them yet, but the question is: would a member of the US Military refuse a direct order? By law, the Military is prevented from acting on American soil, but not if under outside control, like say, the UN. What then? Look at “No Knock” warrants served by the police. They’re just following orders. This is the scary scenario: will Our Own turn on Their Own? “Brother against Brother”? Sound familiar?

    “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” (Marbury vs.Madison, 1803.)

    “Every law consistent with the Constitution will have been made in pursuance of the powers granted by it. Every usurpation or law repugnant to it cannot have been made in pursuance of its powers. The latter will be nugatory and void.” (Thomas Jefferson)

    “There is no position which depends on clearer principles than that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.” (Alexander Hamilton)

    “Clearly, a federal law which is contrary to the Constitution is no law at all; it is null, void, invalid. And a Supreme Court decision, which is not a ‘law,’ has no ‘supremacy’—even if it is faithfully interpreting the Constitution. So it is the height of absurdity to claim that a Supreme Court decision that manifestly violates the Constitution is the ‘supreme law of the land.’” (William Jasper)

    “Then do you profess to ignore the laws of the land? No; not unless they are unconstitutional, then I would do it all the time. Whenever the Congress of the United States, for instance, pass a law interfering with my religion, or with my religious rights, I will read a small portion of that instrument called the Constitution of the United States, now almost obsolete, which says — ‘Congress shall pass no law interfering with religion or the free exercise thereof;’ and I would say, gentlemen, you may go to Gibraltar with your law, and I will live my religion. When you become violators of the Constitution you have sworn before high heaven to uphold, and perjure yourselves before God, then I will maintain the right, and leave you to take the wrong just as you please.” (John Taylor)

    “All laws that are proper and correct, and all obligations entered into which are not violative of the constitution should be kept inviolate. But if they are violative of the constitution, then the compact between the rulers and the ruled is broken and the obligation ceases to be binding.” (John Taylor)

    I don’t know how much you know about law, but going to court and asking for an injunction would not be feasible for the average American. Usually, judges will ask that a bond be posted for court costs by the party asking for the injunction. Since the legal fees could cost millions (since the state has unlimited resources and the government’s answer is usually to drown their opponent in legal motions and briefs), thus ending any request for an injunction. The only way that this can be fought is for someone to be charged with a crime. Then, the legal fees have to be paid by the state and various groups would then be free to offer amicus briefs without the need to post the bond. It would also give the person automatic standing in the case. Your approach here is what SHOULD happen, but it is not, by any stretch of the imagination, reality.
    Another way to do this would be to have groups such as the NRA or NAGR ask for standing for judicial review and summary judgment by the 2nd circuit court of appeals (which is over the state of Connecticut) in light of the recent supreme court decisions (for example, Heller v. District of Columbia). These decisions have severely restricted the ability of states to curtail 2nd amendment rights of their citizens. It is highly likely that the law could be successfully challenged on the basis of the overly broad nature of the restrictions enumerated by the law that instantly criminalizes more than 300,000 residents of the state of Connecticut who, prior to amendment of the law, were law abiding citizens guilty of no crime.
    The law does not apply to weapons that look like hunting rifles, yet possess all the deadliness of those that look like military weapons. It is based on esthetics, not functionality of the weapons in question. It also seriously infringes on the inalienable right to keep and bear arms. Additionally, there is no provision for grandfathering of those who were previously compliant but now are not, meaning that constitutionally, the government of the state of Connecticut has violated Article 1, Section 9, Clause 3, which specifically forbids against the creation of ex post facto laws. Connecticut state law already allows for grandfathering rights of those who owned assault weapons prior to the 1993 assault weapons ban, so there is legal precedent for requiring the state to extend the same protections that were previously available to citizens in the law. There have been several cases lately that have successfully used the supreme court’s decisions to overturn firearms laws that wholesale criminalizes an entire segment of society. Hopefully, this case will be one of them.

    A company or government entity that did this would be in direct violation of Connecticut state law ((CGS §§ 29-28(d) and 29-36g(e)). This act prohibits the dissemination of names, addresses and other private information of concealed weapons permit holders and registered gun owners. Now, that doesn’t mean that Google or some other entity would not try to do something like this, but if they did, they would be criminally and civilly liable for every single person whose private information was illegally obtained and disseminated. If anyone were harmed in any way (including identity theft) because of the actions of such an entity, it could result in a class action lawsuit that could potentially cost hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. Additionally, the person in the government who illegally obtained the information and provided it to that entity could spend years in jail and face staggering fines as well as civil liability.

    You should probably get your facts straight before you start tossing around labels like “close-minded” about persons you know nothing about, I am a Vietnam Veteran Marine, unlike the clown that Ct. just elected to the US Senate, I am a member of NAGR and the NRA and own enough guns of various types and descriptions and the ammo to support them to arm a small militia and I was a Libertarian politically before the word was ever used. You are correct, I was not aware of the legal challenges or of the actions of the liberal judge, but what do you expect in a state that elected a proven liar of the lowest kind who claimed to be a combat veteran in Vietnam to a 6 year seat in the US Senate, rather than the alternative honest, truthful Conservative.. Those people put the wheels in motion that elected those who made the law and put the judge on the bench that ruled against them…. When you elect a bunch of Socio-fascist commies to run your state you get what you pay for, but if any one thinks this “Civil-Disobedience” action will work then by all means carry on, but turning yourself into a ‘felon” is so far the only result and guess what that does not go away once you are convicted no matter how many changes are eventually made to the law. If that makes me close-minded then so be it…. I’m not the one losing my civil rights.

    To All, everyone tout’s the fact that we all have the “Right To Bear Arms”, and quote our forefathers and the constitution, but, no one explains “WHY” we need this right. We need this right to defend ourselves from Bad People, whether it is one person or fifty, or even from a tyrannical government. The “Right To Bear Arms”, is absolute and should never be dissected by anyone at anytime. The method of delivery is mute on this issue. To be fair to all anti gun advocates/politicians, you also have rights such as the right to remain silent that any police officer can read to you, and should read to you, for you all are the real criminals here.

    I think most people know the “why” of it. At least many who are posting on this forum do. There is a danger in offering too much up on the “why” though. Too often, conservatives attempt to list the reasons for gun ownership. The liberal crowd often seizes on this reasoning and, through outright lies and questionable statistical methods, attempts to make the point that NOBODY “needs” to have a gun.
    Whenever I’m asked the question, “Why do you need to own a gun?” by one of my liberal friends, I say one thing….”Because I CAN”. Then I point out that the second amendment does not permit the government to impose a “needs” test on anyone wishing to own and carry a gun. This is why the case just out in California is so pivotal because the state government, like Obama, is determined to ignore any supreme court rulings that do not agree with their position that gun ownership can be limited by forcing gun owners to prove that they have a need for self protection.
    Two recent supreme court decisions have clearly stated that the right to protect oneself, one’s property, and loved ones, as well as those around them, is an inalienable right, not a privilege granted by the state. There are several more cases on the docket for the supreme court that will further put a nail in the coffin of the relentless governmental drive to impose control. This fight has absolutely nothing to do with “safety”. It has EVERYTHING to do with control.

    Well, I remember that at the Nuremberg trials, the common plea of “I was just following orders!” was a common cry. If you are too young, you can google it. If our soldiers swear to defend the Constitution of the United States, then have to question orders especially now. So you may think that our army cannot act on our soil, but then the President is not allowed to “make legislation” by elective order either. It becomes a person choice when given a direct order to enter a house and confisicate personal and legal fire arms because the Attorney General says it is OK with no Supreme Court orders! What is happening here has happened before in Germany. If we are too stupid to see this then we deserve the outcome.

    I was hoping someone or some state would take the lead a stop this wave of disarming its people. We have a right to be gun owners. Registering your gun has no benefit to anyone. This is a way for the government to know who has the guns. This registration makes money for the state and of course they want their money. But, there is no benifit to registering our gun. Why should you have to register your gun, your dog or cat? Its about money and controling the population.If we give up this right we will surely be run amok by a government to powerful to fight. Stick to your guns, so to speak CT. I support your decision to make a stand. My only wish is that others will follow suit

    HELLO, IT’S NOT THE LEGAL GUN OWNERS THAT ARE A THREAT. For what purpose does the government want us to register our guns???? Have you asked yourself that question? What purpose does registration of guns serve? If we take the guns out of law abiding citizens hands he only ones left with the guns are the criminals and the law. Do you want to live in a country that says you can not protect yourself and your family? Some agrue that its the police, and military’s responsibility to protect us. Last time I checked the response time to a crime is an average of 5 min give or take a minute or more.Yet it takes less then second to pull the trigger of a gun. By all means I don’t want to leave my fate in the hands of a police officers response time. Do you? In the case of a natural disaster like New Orleans, there was lawlessness and crimanal running the streets the police couldn’t respond, many of these people had to protect themselves and their loved ones on their own. That is why we don’t want the only people with the guns to be the military and the police.

    Has Connecticut or the rest of New England thought about registering immigrants from terrorist nations like the Boston Marathon brothers? Has Connecticut or the rest of the country thought about denying taxpayer welfare to immigrants from terrorist nations? Is the government going to register pressure cookers rather than terrorist immigrants? Aside from Jefferson’s quotation that Second Amendments rights are intended to protect citizens from the government, these are the people who have created the current need to bear arms.

    Malloy – His
    Lackeys in the State House and the Federal Judge who ruled in their favor
    regarding Malloy’s Anti American firearms grab need to be removed from office
    on the grounds that they are incompetent or are with malice destroying the
    Connecticut Constitution. Look up and read what the judge said and read this in
    the first part of the Connecticut Constitution:

    ARTICLE
    FIRST.

    DECLARATION
    OF RIGHTS

    (Bill of
    Rights – Article 1 Connecticut)

    SEC. 15.
    Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state

    As you will
    note, nowhere in “Article First” Bill of Rights – Connecticut does it say – but
    only the arms approved by the Governor, members of the State House / Senate or
    any other branch of State Government. It also makes clear that SEC.15 is for
    defense of the citizen and the state.

    So unless the
    judge, Malloy and his lackeys believe Connecticut is only in danger of attack
    from squirrels, rabbits and other assorted small wild life the law rammed
    through the Capital and supported by this judge is unconstitutional. This judge
    implied in his ruling – the Constitution be dammed and implied that all
    Citizens of Connecticut who wanted firearms that Malloy arbitrarily and with
    malice labeled assault weapons (which they are not) are would be killers as Malloy’s
    made up list are firearms that are by Malloy’s standard only for killing people
    another lie by Malloy and backed up by this Judge.

    It is time
    that WE the People demand that any judge who cannot put aside his / her
    personal views when making a decision effecting the Constitution (State or USA)
    must stand down and let an American who will support, protect and defend the
    Constitutions of both the State and the Republic take the Bench.

    Citizens of
    the Republic never forget, this is not just an attack on the good citizens of
    Connecticut this is like a cancer if not stopped it will spread throughout the
    Republic and destroy the Republic.

    I wonder when the first CT SWAT team is going to kick down the door to some poor schlub’s house, kill him, part of his family, and his dog……all to send a message to the other “felons” that they better not mess around with the lib government orders.

    Or is that not going to happen because maybe the state authorities are scared of these people? If the government “fears the people” that would be a very good thing and would help restore the power to the hands of the people, and not some idiot politicians.

    Hitting a druggie place is one thing, Hitting a home where there may be several AR-15′s/AK-47′s and people that believe in their god-given rights strongly enough, that they will fight before they give them up, can be a very frightening thing to think about. The ballistic armor that SWAT guys wear is designed mostly for 9mm, not medium power rifle ammo. This game of nerves is going to be interesting to watch play out.

I wouldn’t ever register a gun I own. they want you to register them because that is a form of admission letting them know you do own them. its easier for them to confiscate them when there registered . there are a hundred thousand people there a few thousand police shoot all the idiots that come to your door. the cops are out numbered make it a war worth fighting . screw Hillary and chris Christy also along with that muselim pig Obama. put them in your cross hairs to.

    If that were to happen in the november mid terms where the dems took back the house the cat would be out of the bag because every analyst has said that will be impossible cuz they would need a sweep in every race and the polls show their numbers so low right now that it would spark a revolt by the voters calling it voter fraud .Obama and his little class of tyrants are gonna fall in november and they know it .They know the people are pissed and all his empty promises wont change that.After the senate is taken back then the real hope and change that obama reniged on will begin.First obamas impeachment then indightments on kilary and eric holder and then throw nancy pelosi .chuck schumer and dianne [i have a ccp but you cant ] feinstein out and lock the doors so these scum cant slither in under it.

    Why wait till it comes to your or my state .I say stop it in connecticut before it goes any farther.I think whoever can should go to connecticut and stand with these people and show these scum bag politicians that theyre not just dealing with the gun owners in connecticut but all 100 million of us .If i lived closer and could i would go and rally for these men and women who all need our support.Everyone who can ‘go and stand strong with your fellow americans and lets take back our country one corrupt politician at a time .Whos with me on this.

    Our rights are NOT “God Given.” Mayhap God helped the founding fathers, likely did. But, they gave of their wealth, blood and lives and THAT’s what gave, and have kept, us our rights.

    I have a strong feeling that no one will ever be arrested under this law. The state doesn’t have the back bone to enforce it.
