CT Governor Dannel Malloy to Gun Owners: “Your Side Lost,” Get Over It
D.C. Clothesline ^ | 03-16-2014 | Tim Brown

Posted on 03/16/2014 5:00:48 PM PDT by PaulCruz2016

As Connecticut is in the midst of a very serious situation regarding guns and gun registration, Governor Dannel Malloy attended a town meeting this week to address constituents at John Barry Elementary School in Meriden, Connecticut. During that event, a pro-gun citizen, who has opposed the legislation signed into law by Malloy, which requires gun owners to register their semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines or be considered felons, asked how Malloy could push legislation that is against law abiding gun owners while abolishing the death penalty and offered early release for violent criminals. Malloy’s answer was not to point to the State Constitution, but to point to the people’s desire to “feel safe.” In that respect, he told the questioner that the legislation regarding gun registration had gone through each branch of government and “your side lost.” In essence, Malloy said, “Get over it.”

Malloy told a constituent who asked about the constitutionality of the gun registration law, “One court has already decided… courts are where the constitutionality of these things are decided.”

“You’ve thrown that term around,” Malloy said with a smirk, speaking of the term “constitutional.” “It’s gone to the court, and guess what? You lost.”

Sounds like a nice guy. I’m sure he’ll have no issue getting re-elected.

Courts don’t determine what is constitutional. We the People decide that.

Obama sock puppet shows his hand and his arrogance.

Perhaps instead of fighting over Crimea, we should direct our attention to the home front and get rid of our little Putins.

Malloy is right.

You can't elect democrat majorities and expect to keep your second amendment rights.

Typical arrogant leftist. When they’re the ones in charge they don’t give a hoot about bipartisanship or finding common ground with their opponents, but when the shoe is on the other foot they demand that the GOP reaches across the aisle and compromise, and true to form our side usually does.

"Courts don’t determine what is constitutional. We the People decide that."

Not in a republic. Anarchy or a democracy is what you describe. If a popular vote was held today, we would probably loose the 2nd Amendment.

Do not forget that there are now more people on the dole than working for a living. They respond to new entitlements every time and have no respect or allegiance to the Constitution.

Yes, our side lost....for now.

When (if) our side weer to retake the state of CT and they were to repeal this gun ban, do you think that your side will just “get over it” or will they act like the lowlifes in Wisconsin, or Michigan?

Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

Or that Black men and women weren’t citizens/people, because only people can carry guns around where they want, and no one would want Blacks with guns.

I was thinking the same thing...

The prize he won was about 300,000 pissed off citizens...and those are the just the gun owners..

I see a lot of current members of the "winning team" tossed out on their ass with their "prize"
