AR-15 Ammo Magazines Sent to Connecticut Governor, Legislators as 'Gift'
Connecticut Magazine ^

Posted on 01/01/2014 3:56:23 PM PST by matt04

State Senate Majoriy Leader Martin M. Looney said he would have preferred to receive a different type of magazine for a Christmas present.

“I wish he had sent me a New Yorker, the New Republic or the Atlantic,” Looney said when told he was the recipient of a high-capacity gun magazine.

Specifically, both Looney, D-New Haven, and state Sen. John McKinney, R-Fairfield, each were sent one 28-round standard capacity AR-15 magazine, manufactured by C Products Defense Inc. of Bradenton, Fla.

It was part of Alabama gun activist Mike Vanderboegh’s “Toys for Totalitarians” campaign, in which he is sending banned high-capacity magazines to some legislators after he finished sending various examples of magazines to the governors of Colorado, Maryland, New York and, as of Monday, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

Looney said he was informed by Capitol Police Sgt. Timothy Boyle of the present late Monday.

The majority leader said he didn’t accept it and a spokesman for the police said the three empty magazines have been turned over to the Connecticut State Police major crime squad.

Looney said some people think the entire Constitution resides in the Second Amendment, rather than understanding the totality of the document.

If only they would be prosecuted and convicted of the felony crime that the possession of a unregistered standard capacity magazine is in CT.

This could be a fun legal battle to watch. Nationally these mags are legal and also from the state they were mailed from. Bloomie would try to file charges.

This a-hole's name sure suits him! Someone ought to tell him the facts about the Second Amendment: Without it, the rest of the Constitution is absolutely meaningless.

The Second Amendment is what separates the United States of America from the despot dictatorships of the world.

I guess some folks had trouble with tactical reloads. Anymore, I don’t trust the feed lips on aluminum mags to hold up if I have to slam ‘em home.

That's rich, this Jerk ignores the 'Totality of the Document." According to this Ahole, the "Living and breathing" Constitution has a dying part called the 2nd Amendment.

His choice of mags labels him as the intellectual no-weight that his state deserves.

Hey gov, go read some more pseudo-science about guns...and take In couple of tech-not tomes on climate change while you’re at it.

What a maroon.

The east coast is doomed anyway. Either progressives, the muzzies, or the upcoming ice age should take care of them.

Looks like the AR mags are 30 and the AK mags 28.

Too bad they don’t make mags for AK platform Saigas. They’re a little harder to come by.

28 or 30, the point is, you ought to have at least 10 or 15 mags for each battle rifle. When it looks like the SHTF, load ALL the mags you own.

So we should all take any crappy or malfunctioning magazines and mail them to random legislators in states that hag bans. Maybe one or two might get charged.

Looney said some people think the entire Constitution resides in the Second Amendment, rather than understanding the totality of the document.

In addition to being clear, direct and concise, one of the great aspects of the US Constitution is that each clause and amendment is written in such a way that it is self contained and stands on its own.

Unlike the gibberish written by congress in modern times, intentionally meant to be confusing, uncertain and unclear, the Constitution was written to be understandable and unmistakable in content and meaning.

It is only corrupt politicians, academics and judges who maintain the self-serving pretense that the Constitution must be interpreted and deciphered.

Sounds like someone in the CT Capitol building or legislative offices just made an illegal transfer of a large-capacity magazine.

But, this being Connecticut after all, criminal acts by government officials or employees is pretty much business as usual.

“When it looks like the SHTF, load ALL the mags you own.”

I keep several around loaded to half capacity, and rotate those monthly to combat spring fatigue.

What a waste of time. Looney is still trying to figure out the diff between a clip and a magazine. Hope it came with directions.

Dang, where can I get me some of these high capacity clips??? I can only fit 5 bullets in my clips

For use in their actual select fire "assault weapons" to be used in "no knock" raids at the wrong address based on a fraudulent warrant.

Any citizens or dogs killed during the production of this tyranny were deemed "threatening".

No officers were injured and they all went home that night.

Latest word is that working the spring is what leads to failure. Keeping the mag loaded doesn’t hurt.
