Unlike the official saying that the confiscation threat wasn’t a threat but a “public service”.

CT families been there since 1620`s...remember the British tyrants

California families do not know anything about fighting the British for right to bear arms.

Out of gunsight, out of mind.

Yankees, even today, are a bit different. When the manadatory seatbelt laws came in, Massachusetts actually repealed it through referendum, I believe. It ultimately came back, but Massachusetts was already the land of Dukakis while CA was the land of Deukmajian. And yet, there is still a civil libertarian streak in there that may yet be tapped into. Not a majority, mind you, maybe not a large minority anymore, but it's there. In 1994, Tom Scott ran as a FOURTH party candidate, basically a FREEPER candidate, getting 12% of the vote. He would have gotten more if it weren't for the Republican (Rowland) lying, and a number of voters who were understandably afraid of Dem. Bill Curry. Rowland wound up in jail, and deserved it.

Time to start recall petitions for the Governor and all communists Democrats in the legislature. This is how the gestapo started. Unconstitutional law and a police mentality like this.

District Judge Alfred Covello ruled on January 30 that all of Connecticut’s new gun provisions are constitutional.

Worse than the unconstitutional laws written by corrupt legislators, is the corrupt judiciary that upholds them.

There will be NO relief in the [corrupt] courts of this country from the tyranny of our legislature(s). A thinking man can carry that to its logical, and inevitable, conclusion.

"The overthrow of governments have occured on such infringements of rights."

The CSP is not sure what to do.
They cannot know who did not register their ARs without going into the sales records of the individual gun shops - as soon as they try to access those records every Patriot in Connecticut will know within hours - long before they can make it to anyone's house.

The only thing scarier than busting down a door with an armed homeowner behind it is busting one down to find he's already gone (but probably close by).

We assume our Patriot brothers from other states will start flooding into Connecticut....

"We assume our Patriot brothers from other states will start flooding into Connecticut..."

Our country was founded by such men. Such men stood on Lexington Green and at Concord Bridge. Do we still have men like that? I pray to God we do.

Dear Lord in Heaven your people have become weak and many revel evils much like those which you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for.

Yet many here still believe and remain true to your word. I pray that you would take pity on us who believe and would in your mercy send us a Great leader as you did for Israel in David and in our own early trial when you sent us Washington. Send us a man like Washington strong and with wisdom yet not too proud to bend his knee to you and ask for your blessing and guidance in all that he does.

In Jesus' name I pray.

All those who agree say Amen.

I think the Solzhenytsin quote about resisting the secret police is relevant now in Connecticut and becoming so in the Republic generally. California is a different country.

What if the feds get involved?

What then?

The article says we should start operations in our home areas to take the pressure off Connecticut patriots.

The Connecticut gun-grabbers could ignite the whole freaking country!

Some recommend a Night of the Long Knives against the liberals in Hollywood, the media, academia, government, etc.

This is why defenders should be making arrangements with their neighbors. If they are so lucky as to see the attack by the jackboots coming they could alert them and the latter would find themselves with trouble on all their flanks.

“There must be different people in California. They rolled over for this years ago without a wimper.”

There are thousands of AR-15’s in the hands of CA citizens and none of them are registered as called for by the CT law. We do have a 10 rd mag restriction, but they are also not registered.

Also,I guess you don’t bother reading what has been going on here in California with respect to CCW. Right now, unless the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals grants an en banc review of their decision last month, California will have to issue CCW permits to anyone who isn’t prohibited by reason of being a felon or being adjudged mentally unstable. Go look up Peruta v. San Diego County. The San Diego Sheriff has already said that he’s not asking for an en banc and has started issuing permits. Ditto for the Orange and Yolo County Sheriffs. The AG has asked for an en banc, but it is doubtful she will get one. I would urge you to read the decision, because it may well be the one that the SCOTUS uses when they are finally forced to rule completely on the 2A. I was amazed at the thoroughness of it.

If the PTB in CT allow this situation to degenerate into something ugly it won’t be for lack of warning but rather their lack of common sense. It will all be on them.

CA does have assault weapons registration. We’ve gotten around the definition in most cases, especially via the bullet button.

As to the Peruta decision on CCW good cause statements, I am very pleased and hope it stands, but note this is relief from the courts, not our insane politicians.

The Battle of Athens This link is a "summary" or highly abridged version of the movie that gives you a good idea what the full movie is about.

I had NO IDEA this event occurred in our history. Was never taught it. To think that returning WW2 vets had to arm themselves to fight our own government is mind boggling to me, yet it happened.

I'll be watching the full version with my two teenage sons soon, thank you so much for posting about the Battle of Athens. I'd never have known it happened without your post.

Go look up Peruta v. San Diego County.

IIRC, it was that exact ruling from the 9th Circuit Court that struck the deathblow to Illinois strict handgun laws, and obliterated Chicago's handgun ban.

I was floored that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals did it. They're often referred to as the 9th Circus Court.

Illinois has 440,000 FOID Card (Firearms Owners ID) holders, the state is expecting at least that many CCW applications ........ I'm one of them.

They have appealed the district judge’s finding, but they should ask for an immediate injunction to prevent the state from enforcing this law as it cause irreparable harm to the rights of its citizenry.

That is, they are in a quandary, that while the law is being appealed, if they are arrested and charged, the state may use that as an excuse to deny them their 2nd Amendment rights *no matter what* the appeals court finds.

This alone means the request for an injunction is “ripe”, that the court does not need to wait until someone is arrested to provide an injunction or appellate relief.

“...it was that exact ruling from the 9th Circuit Court that struck the deathblow to Illinois strict handgun laws, and obliterated Chicago’s handgun ban.”

Actually the change in Illinois was due to a 7th Circuit Court ruling. Now we have the “Eastern A$$holes” in the 2nd, 4th and 5th Circuits saying just the opposite of the 7th and the 9th. So right now, the 2A is doing well in some states (the one’s lying in the 7th and 9th districts) and some other states (which lie in the 2nd,4th and 5th Circuits) not so much. But the door has been opened and the Genie is now out of the box. Just imagine the insurrection that would take place now if in a number of years ( yes it will be a number since the SCOTUS is comprised of a bunch of lay a bouts who don’t break their a$$es working) if they decide the case differently that the 9th! I am holding my breath that gun control is on the way out and that ordinary citizens who want to, will be able to protect themselves.

“CA does have assault weapons registration. We’ve gotten around the definition in most cases, especially via the bullet button.”

It is true that there is a list of “banned AW’s” here, but as you point out, with a 10 rd mag and a BB you are good to go, and all the AR’s that are currently owned ( as of 12/31/13) are not registered. Also there are huge numbers of “home built” AR’s and AK’s that are perfectly legal, that the state would have a great deal of trouble “finding.” BTW I am a Californian, and a gun owner, including an AR.

Illinois is not in the 9th Circuit, so nothing they decide is binding in IL (though the ruling may well have influenced whatever court ruled IL had to have CCW).
