Connecticut gun ban signifies ‘new phase in history’
Examiner ^ | 4/3/13 | David Codrea

Posted on 04/03/2013 9:51:05 AM PDT by Nachum

“They tried to hide it, but we got access to it,” Rich Burgess, President of Connecticut Carry, wrote last night in an email to supporters. “Good to leak their plans far and wide, even though there is nothing likely to stop it at this point."

“It”?

“This is the working draft of the legislation that is to be voted on and signed into law tomorrow in Connecticut,” Burgess explained. “We are about to enter a new phase in history here.”

He’s right, and that realization is reflected by a CBS News report that “Customers packed gun stores around Connecticut on Tuesday ahead of a vote expected to bring sweeping changes to the state's gun control laws, including a ban on the sale of large-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the Newtown shooting and a new classification for more than 100 types of guns as banned assault weapons.”

Expect massive non-compliance. And a few law suits.

They’re coming for your guns CT. After you give them up, what they do to next is your own damn fault, because you will not be able to fight back. Enjoy your socialist hell.

Non compliance does not worry them. they have jails, heavily armed goons, and prisons to deal with those who do not comply.

Lawsuits do not worry them because they own the courts.

They have both these avenues covered. So what else remains?

someone with the resources ought to conduct a pole in all the countries where the citizens have been disarmed by their government and ask what they think of being helpless against criminals and their government tyrants. On second thought, maybe that is the question that should be asked of Americans. Instead the pollsters are asking: should firearms ownership by America citizens be forbidden in order to protect the innocent and the children?

I just scanned through the bill linked in the article. Yup. Sound like just what the doctor ordered. Only one glaring problem for the asshats in the nutbag states legislature. Didn’t happen to see ANYTHING that would have stopped little adam lanza (new poster villain for HCI) anyplace in the entire package. Maybe I missed something. Kind of like the “Just teach men not to rape.” “Teach nutbags not to go on rampages.” There. That ought to do it. The level of stupidity of the American public far exceeds my expectations again. While we, the law abiding victims, are the ones who suffer these intrusions on our God given rights. Not government “granted” rights.

You know -- call me crazy -- but I think the government is beginning to infringe some Constitutionally protected rights.

Massive civil disobedience would seem to be the order of the day. The laws in CT (and every other state) which infringe RKBA should be flaunted, laughed at, and violated with great abandon. All of them. We need to become a nation of Scofflaws.

If history is any indication, that phase would properly be termed "pre-revolutionary".

Actually, you're about to enter a tragic and predictable old phase, repeated far too many times in the historical record.

And the phase that comes next sure ain't fun.

This is just a “what if” thought that I had...

Just what if all of the FFL’s in Connecticut got together and
decided that they did not want to be bothered with participating
in performing background checks for private party transactions?

What is there in the law that would “force” them
to perform business transactions against their will?

What would such action do to the law-makers forced registration plans?

“They have both these avenues covered. So what else remains?”

Guerrilla war. Gun grabbers can die. Ask how well we've subdued Afghanistan or Iraq (or how we failed in Viet Nam).

The gun grabbers — their willing fellow travelers in the political, judicial, LEO, and media classes — all live among us. In this age of information, they can be hunted down. Remember how the staff of the NY periodical screamed after they published all the CCW permit holders in the two Long Island counties when of their personal information was posted on the Internet?

Do the same to the gun grabbers in all these states. Put FEAR into them. Make them fear something will happen to them or their families. Make them constantly live looking at everyone as a potential assassin. Make them feel hunted like the vermin they are.

"So what are CT gun owners going to do?"

a) Up until now, one did not require any type of paperwork for a private sale of a long gun, only handguns.
b) Up until now, anyone can trade their long guns for any merchandise they choose with no need for paperwork.
c) I suspect that most owners of long guns in question have already traded their "at risk" long guns for farm equipemnt, table saws, and the like.
d) They would need an awful lot of item-specifiic Search Warrants to prove these people wrong.

True enough. Although a good many people who start off on one end seem to wind up at the other before the party's over.

“...gun grabbers in all these states. Put FEAR into them...”

They will take one state at a time, secure it, then Your turn is next.
far Too many people willing to comply...Too much to loose, so they think.

That is why German people looked the other way..........

After they finish their final run on ammunition the good, decent, honest citizens of Connecticut should stage a run on tar and feathers - and then put them to good use!

We have gone from individuals selling their birthright and freedom for a bowl of Governmentent stew to a entire State. When us few that continue to value our freedom are gone [died], we will take the leech and parasite class with us. Who will support them? The Government is not and they cannot support themselves. The Governmental ruling class will enjoy themselves,but the leech and parasite class will not be enjoying it at all. They will be starving to death.

“Too many people willing to comply.”

Until the politicians order their thugs to murder other Americans to enforce their will. Then the hunting of the traitors and their enablers will begin. It will be an ugly war and that is what’s coming. The large city enclaves of the libs will be the trigger — the question is what state the opening shots will come. Will it be CO, CT, NY, MD, or other?

I think it won’t happen this way, because the enemy will use a proxy to carryout the treachery.

Unless, they are truely stupid.

Never, ever, underestimate the stupidity of politicians. They will try the JBT route because these guys are on their payroll and they don't expect blow back. They shoot dogs all the time and get away with it. Why not the owners?

FedGov’s DHS is ordering desensitizing targets of women, elders, kids, pregnant women, and other white “domestic terrorists”; why wouldn't the state of CT or NY or MD or RI use their own employees to murder fellow Americans?

“...Never, ever, underestimate the stupidity of politicians...”

Stalin, Hitler were not stupid, but Thugs still got into power.

I say piecemeal disarmament, after a catastrophe.

Unless, my believe is, the conserv. states begin standing up to unconstitutional laws. If the states (a few) stand together, mobility of enemy would be hindered.
Then maybe action.
and possibly foreign interference.

Hummmmmmm.......
