Decrying estimates that scores of thousands of Connecticut residents failed to register their military-style assault weapons with state police by Dec. 31, The Hartford Courant published an editorial Friday declaring State Can't Let Gun Scofflaws Off Hook.
Aware that willful noncompliance ... is doubtless a major issue, The Courant floated the wishful thinking that many gun owners are unaware of their obligation to register military-style assault weapons and would do so if given another chance.
But the bottom line is that the state must try to enforce the law, The Courant concluded, calling on the state to use the background check database to identify who has not obeyed, and to go and get them.
If ever there was proof that citizen disarmament demanders are lying when they scoff at legitimate fears that background checks provide a registration capability, this is it. And if ever there was further corroboration that they intend using that registration to enable confiscation, The Courant just removed all doubt.
If you want to disobey the law, you should be prepared to face the consequences, they pronounce.
Perhaps The Courant's editors and those theyre egging on would do well to also consider consequences those who want to enforce the law should be prepared to face, as Mike Vanderboegh explained in an open letter to the Connecticut State Police posted this morning on the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog.

The “State” is violating the constitution.
Where is the courant on immigration, constitutional abuses and so on..
While there will be many of our brethren charged, convicted and jailed...they won't be in jail very long. They'll be replaced by those who put them there.
Yeah, too bad it's on "Examiner" where no sane person would go.

In other words kick off CWII.
Not only that, but The Constitution State is violating the Constitution.
The 2nd Amendment vs. the 10th Amendment federal case? How would that turn out, I wonder?

Addressed to Elmer Fudd?
Enforce the law as written, or as the Executive branch wishes it, or as Democrats want to be bothered to obey?
I have to admit that I find the examiner site and their excessive adware rather uninviting. I hope another means of having some payment for content is invented.
I like the idea of having people pay micro ammounts for content. I would gladly pay a nickle fore each article that David Codrea writes, or subscribe to him for $10 a year.
Someone is going to invent a painless way to have micro payments online, down to a mil (1/10 of a cent). They will make a fortune by charging 1 percent of each transaction.
Who gets the honor of playing Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith and his troops in this reenactment.
If homeboy was any good, somebody would hire him.
Sure, he’s sincere. He’s fighting the good fight.
But Examiner blog makes him look like a clown.
He is a professional writer, has been for years. Started with Guns & Ammo in 1999, currently field editor at GUNS.
So he writes for the virus and disease laden Examiner.. and on the free service Blogspot.
Good for him.
The blogspot link is his blog, it has his bio on it.
I agree an excellent article.
However, both sides have missed the real argument against what Connecticut is trying to do.
Please enter my way-back-machine and return to the trilling year of yesteryear - say about 1922.
Has anyone read the contemporary reports of how real America responded to Prohibition? Does anyone understand that Prohibition ended because the various levels of government needed the tax revenue?
IMHO, Connecticut has enacted Prohibition II this time involving “assault weapons” what ever they are. When, not if, the ruling liberal/progressive/socialist/democrat elitists try pushing that wet noodle through the straw everyone is going to be in for a very rough ride.
