Ct. Gives People More Time To Turn In Their Guns,before They Go Door To Door Asking For Them

Recommended Posts

 I will be blunt i thought when i saw that earlier i figured it was the tin foil hat bunch at it again.

 

I was WRONG.They want people to register with the state EVERY gun they own and turn over to the police any semi auto weapon that has now been classied as an  ' Assault Rifle '...or if found with said weapon will be charged with a D felony.

 

So they are turning an estitameted 350,000  people JUST in Ct. into felons.

 

When it sunk in it caused me to have a chill and i felt sick about it.Evil wins when good men stand idly by.

 

I will never hand over guns to anyone, NO ONE. I served this country,my father did as did his,my son does now.This has to die on the vine...sometimes you have to draw a line in the sand and say 'this far,no further' and that time is now.

In the reading I've done on this I have found nothing that states that semi auto firearms have to be turned over to authorities. From what I can gather, residents only have to register their firearms. Also, from the information I could find, it appears that all rifles purchased prior to the ban are grandfathered in, meaning that they have to be registered to keep possession of them.  

 

With that said, CT is going to find themselves in a rough place if the vast majority refuse to comply. They would be far under manned in trying to prosecute that many people for failure to register. I also have to wonder, when this law is struck down by the Supreme Court (which I'm sure will happen someday), how will CT compensate those that were screwed over?

I parted with most of my stuff. I registered the rest. I used the money to buy handguns.

Molon Labe: Connecticut's Terrifying Start Of Gun Confiscation

The latest gun control law in Connecticut has crossed a very frightening line. A standoff has been created between the government and tens of thousands of gun owners now considered felons. It marks the beginning of an Orwellian new phase. Gun owners saw it coming, as evidenced by their recent adoption in recent years of the defiant expression "molon labe." The phrase originated from Spartan General-King Leonidas, who reportedly responded with "Come and get them!" to Persian Emperor Xerxes' demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. The Spartans fought valiantly, but were ultimately defeated. With the prequel to the Hollywood bestselling movie 300 just released last week, Americans are now even more aware of the phrase.

Until now, gun control laws hadn't mandated the confiscation of weapons; generally, banned guns were grandfathered in under previous laws so their current owners could continue to legally own them. The Connecticut lawchanges all that. Passed last year in response to the Sandy Hook shooting, SB 1160 bans so-called "assault weapons" - certain rifles, more recently known as AR-15s, that have been singled out based on purely cosmetic criteria - and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

The firearms have been banned based on how "scary" they look, not their actual usage in crimes. According to a study from the BATF that came out a few years ago, none of the top 10 guns used in crimes in the U.S. were so-called assault weapons; they were all pistols or revolvers. In fact, the #5 gun used in crimes was a shotgun, which Vice President Joe Bidenadvised Americans last year to use for self-defense.

The only way to legally retain one of these newly banned firearms or magazines in Connecticut now is to register it - but most gun owners do not want their name on a government list. They are well aware that a list of gun owners can someday be used by the government for confiscation. If gun owners didn't register their firearms or magazines prior to the December 31, 2013 deadline mandated by the legislation, their firearms will be subject to confiscation and the owners considered guilty of a felony.

So far, it appears that the vast majority of gun owners affected by the legislation did not register their guns prior to the December 31 deadlinemaking between 50,000 and 350,000 gun owners felons. This is frightening, considering the law doesn't just make the violation a misdemeanor, it makes it a felony, which could result in a prison sentence. Fewer than 50,000 gun owners registered their firearms by the deadline to comply with the law.

Gun owners who sent in their applications for registration after the deadline have reported already receiving letters by the government instructing them to get rid of their guns. The Hartford Courant notes that the government has records of gun owners who went through background checks in order to purchase AR-15s. The government could potentially go after any of those gun owners who failed to register their guns.

There is shock that gun owners are showing defiance. "I honestly thought from my own standpoint that the vast majority would register," said Sen. Tony Guglielmo, R-Stafford, the ranking GOP senator on the legislature's public safety committee. "If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don't follow them, then you have a real problem."

On January 30, Federal District Court Judge Alfred V. Covello upheld the law in Shew v. Malloy. While he admitted that it placed a substantial burden on the Second Amendment, he claimed that it "substantially related to the important governmental interest of public safety and crime control." It is astonishing that a judge would use that as justification, considering even Congress sunsetted the federal assault weapons ban due to a lack of evidence showing it was effective.

Many judges come up with rulings based on their personal political views, or are pressured into a certain decision by outside special interests. Judicial activism is nothing new. Judicial activists have successfully forced a tortured, restricted interpretation of the Second Amendment over the years, in order to diminish its validity. Covello's disappointing decision is currently being appealed, backed by the powerful NRA.

Trying to prosecute 50,000 to 350,000 gun owners would be insanity. The liberal activist politicians who passed the foolish legislation in response to an emotional response to the Sandy Hook Shooting do not represent the will of the people who elected them, who want the Constitution upheld. In many ways, the Second Amendment is our most important right, because without it, we cannot protect any of our other rights. There is a reason why it is the Second Amendment, not the 30th Amendment.

Requiring gun owners to register their firearms puts them on a fast track with sex offenders, who are required to register with the government so they can be monitored for the rest of their lives. If gun owners fail to register for tracking, they are then treated like criminals, just like sex offenders. This is bizarre, considering lawful gun owners are merely patriotic Americans concerned about protecting their cherished rights. AR-15s aren't guns used in crimes, but are popular guns for self-defense and target shooting.

Connecticut Carry, a leading gun rights organization in the state, is daring the government to come after gun owners. The stage is being set for massive civil disobedience unless the law is changed. Many prosecutors and law enforcement officers are not going to uphold a law this heavy-handed; nevertheless, this ill-conceived legislation, pushed through by gun-control activists, is going to pit many law-abiding law enforcement officers against thousands of patriotic, American freedom-loving gun owners. It is terrifying that here in America, innocent gun owners would be put in the same category as sex offenders, turning them into felons. Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy (D), who signed SB 1160, seems to have become another King Xerxes. This time around, will the Spartans in Connecticut prevail?

NY is next I don't own anything needed to be rigistered anyways but I've still signed all the petitions and went on a few rally's. My county is so far the only county to officially stand up against the unSAFEACT every county has voiced they don't agree and don't want it and won't enforce it but my county is the first to file paperwork and actually put it in writing.

I am going to make as many as i can aware.Just because it isnt happening in your city,county,or state right now doesnt mean that it wont.We have to care about it happening where ever it happens.this is when those who support the 2nd. need to close ranks and show a united front..

 

 This is not just about owning guns.this is about accepting the compromise of our rights and doing something about it..AGAIN i will never hand over my guns..i am not a lemming i will not be herded over a cliff..how many times just this year i have read where owning a firearm saved someones life.dozens of times,it is a basic right we have as Americans and i am not going to bow down and let them strip me of that right without one hell of a fight.

I can think of three times carrying saved my life and possibly my gf's life once. Had a bow hunter trespassing that drew his bow on us from a tree stand and didn't let down till after I drew my gun and told him I'd kill him if he didn't drop the bow and leave. A few weeks ago we were approached by a cracked out homeless guy that wanted me to give him money when I refused he got irate.Both of those times were in the last 6 months.

They can take them from me when I'm dead but I won't turn them in and I don't see it happening in alabama. But you never know this country is going straight down the toilet

I live in Alabama. There is no way in hell this would happen here. I honestly think a comet would hit Birmingham before a law like this came into being. We will stand behind y'all though.

Besides. We've already left the union before. Ain't like we can't/won't do it again.

The bottom line is the USA wants to join the European union. To do this the people must be disarmed. Life is like a box of chocolates but this box says run forest run into the hills.

Georgia doesn't seem to be playing the same game as the North Eastern states are. They are expanding the right to carry.

For all current and prior military: You swore an oath to protect and serve the Constitution of the US against ALL ENEMIES foreign or DOMESTIC.  Everyone must realize that the 2nd amendment is NOT about hunting like many lying politicians would like us to believe.  It is the people's last resort to protect from a tyrannical government according to Jefferson.   Wake-up people!!
