Skip to comments.'Insane' crowds as customers flood Connecticut gun stores before vote
Posted on 04/03/2013 1:26:09 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Gun stores all over Connecticut were packed Tuesday, one day before lawmakers were expected to vote on a sweeping package of laws that would ban military-style assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Theyre insane. Ive never seen them so busy before, shopper Shari Reilly, who bought up several high-capacity magazines, told NBC Connecticut.
Gov. Dannel P. Molloy, a Democrat, has said he will sign what could be the toughest law passed anywhere in the country" -- if it gets through the legislature. Connecticut would become the latest of a handful of states following Colorado and New York to enact strict new gun-control legislation after the mass shootings in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater and Newtown, Conn., shool. President Obama was scheduled to speak in Colorado on Wednesday to push new federal laws.
Gun manufacturers, ammunition makers and gun store owners in Connecticut have said their businesses will be threatened if a stringent new gun control bill becomes law.
I feel like we have one foot being pushed out the door, Mark Malkowski, the owner of AR-15 manufacturer Stag Arms, told NBC Connecticut. He said his company has received nearly two dozen incentive-laden offers to move out of the state.
Theyre really good offers, Malkowski said. They are offering tax abatements, theyre offering to build you a factory.

The legislature is insane.
Here’s how it works. They pass a law. Normal, law-abiding non-violent people are officially declared “lawbreakers” by the law. The cops arrest the honest people, and the politicians declare that they have arrested so many people, and thus they have solved the problem.
Liberalism is insanity.
Meanwhile, hardened violent criminals laugh all the way to the trunk of a gun-runner’s car and buy whatever the hell they damn well want. Then the criminal rape, loot, steal and murder the innocent people who were declared “lawbreakers.” The politicians are happy because their original intent was to create a permanent underclass that rises up against honest, law-abiding people.
Liberalism is insanity.
how long before criminals realize homes in CT are the place to steal good stuff.
nobody lives there in the day.
nobody is armed.
laws favor the guilty.
nobody cries for dead effetes.
Watch as law abiding citizens become felons at the stroke of a pen?
There is no such thing as a law that over rides the Constitution of the United States.
all of my life I have been informed of my rights and a pack od a-holes cannot change these rights with a State law written by a pack of fools.
One day these laws will comeback to haunt these trasonous people who would steal our rights. American have not yet been reduced to the jugheads in England who calmly give up thri rights .One day we will fight.Wait until push comes to shove and remember who voted to steal your birthright.They are your target, and they are dependent on others to protect them.
Is it tar-and-feather O’clock yet?
Routine drug raids with MRAPs are just "training ops."
There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any
government has is the power to crack down on criminals.
Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them.
One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes
impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Ayn Rand

Literally true, in the case of Romania. The Ceaucescus were in the middle of a Communist Party "mass rally" when the mob of revolutionary people showed up and broke it up. The Ceaucescus didn't just flee the public space, they hauled ass back to the palace and then took a helicopter out of there, just like Saigon. The People caught up with them a couple of days later, and that was that.
Madame Ceaucescu went out with her mouth open, still barking orders at her executioners to release her and her husband immediately.
Don’t stand in line to get into the gun store, JUST MOVE OUT OF THE F’N STATE!!!!
Right, welcome to Texas!! In my many years I’m now realizing that this country really could split up!!! Texas couldn’t split off to soon for me!!!

Bring them all to Texas. They will be welcome here.
The only ones who are insane are the democrat legislators.
The YouTube videos are cool. We need to do the same here.
When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you - you know your nation is doomed.
What is it that you do not like about Texas? I said nothing about Texas Splitting. But I said I would love to see the NE gun manufacturers move to Texas. To a place where they are appreciated.
