Skip to comments.Connecticut activists ready to ‘ramp up the pressure'
Posted on 03/17/2014 9:42:52 AM PDT by Kenny
Connecticut gun rights activists are using yesterdays report of a home invasion by an on-line southwest Florida news service to bolster their opposition to the Constitution States new gun control law, and today Reason.com is reporting that one police agency is conducting an internal investigation of an officer who said he would like to bang down your door and come after your gun.
This conflict is taking on all the earmarks of an approaching reckoning. The National Rifle Association last week discussed at length the confusion created around the new gun control law. It doesn't help when some folks apparently play games on the Internet.
In an e-mail exchange with Examiner this afternoon, Connecticut Carry President Rich Burgess said next week will see an effort by Connecticut gun owners to ramp up the pressure on the legislature.
Part of that effort may already be underway. On its Facebook page today, Connecticut Carry urges gun owners to write state legislators and tell them about how you feel about being disarmed in the face of these kinds events.
Todays objective of activism, according to the groups Facebook message, is to send those thoughts to every member of the state legislature, and to help in that endeavor, the organization has put all of those e-mail addresses into a cut-and-paste format here.
Burgess famously called on the legislature last week to enforce the law or repeal it. In his e-mail, he suggested that, the state does not have the balls to enforce this law.
Various news reports and blogs over the past several days estimate anywhere between 50,000 and 350,000 Connecticut citizens have failed to register their so-called assault weapons, which could put them in serious legal trouble.

You haf been odered to turn in ze veapons. If you fail to comply, as your MASTER, I vill follow MY oders und send heavily armed stormtroopers er officers to your home und remove zem by force. YOU HAF BEEN VARNED!!
Why do you hate Dave Workman?
They never go after the violent criminals. They always go after the honest, non-violent people.
Cuz the non-violent people don’t vote democrat. Nuff said.
“Constitution State” my ass.....
But, but Danniel Mallof said the people of CT support his gun laws.
> They never go after the violent criminals. They always go after the honest, non-violent people.
Cuz the non-violent people dont vote democrat. Nuff said.
And they’re a lot easier to catch because the’re not running, hiding or lying.
i.e. Gun control nazis. Ooops. I mean gun safety advocates.
Men like Roger Sherman must be spinning in their graves!
...and to this point, the non-violent ones are reluctant to shoot back.
Then again, guess if they did that, they would no longer by non-violent...lol
I heard it was Clint Eastwood who declared that peaceful, honest people turning in their guns is akin to getting castrated because your neighbor has too many kids!
The Guv and Legislators of Connecticutt never study their own histiry. HAHA!
“The Sons of Liberty make no scruple of publickly [sic] declaring that they will fight to their knees in blood
rather than suffer the Stamp Act to be enforced...” p.365. 12 May 1766
“No advices received from Connecticut —the Inhabitants have deposed their governor and chosen another, turned out the members of the Assembly and have formed themselves into a committee of 500 men to oppose the present Stamp Act to be enforced...” May 19, 1766 p.367

My reaction to CT’s gun laws; rental storage in nearby Vermont and a permanent move to Idaho in three years. Better weather too.
When the first Connecticut SWAT team is disarmed and sent walking home in their underwear, THEN the legislature will get the message

In other words: The State is justified in its efforts to reduce violence by passing a law that may increase violence by the State.
It also falls under the rule: “we have to do something. Anything! Pass a law quick. Any law. We don’t care. So that the mind numb voters will think that we are doing something about the problem.”
Make it sooner. Time is short.
+1 to this post. Great idea.
“Chief, we were going to go on the gun raid, but all the tires of our vehicles are flat.”
“And the windshields were busted too.”
“And all the donut shops were closed.”
The one and only way to get these gun grabbers attention is to throw them out of office...in mass...

As much as I’d like to agree with you....the overlords in Connecticut’s legislation would simply double down on stupid....
They just might have their own Rudy Ridge or Waco....
Correct, but I also think the whole country should show some way to back the brave souls in CT who refuse to comply.
Shout out to all the freedom-loving felons of Connecticut!
Yep, that's helpful alright. So helpful that CT state legislators are going to turn those letters complete with name, address, etc.. right over to the CT State Police/law enforcement agencies as these gun owners self-identify who they are and where their guns reside.
That's an idea, to start a hash tag "ct guns shout out" and see how many would join in.
I know everyone's thinking why don't I do that but I don't have Facebook or Twitter accounts, very off the grid.
Would if I could but we’re waiting for my wife to retire. Once the modern “equipment” is stored off-site, screw the nazis. A younger man than me might want to stay and fight these bastards but now I think it’s best to let them suffer for their folly. When the urban youths of Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport start to roam, well see howcsafevthe disarmed people feel
Excuse me, what did you say? I was distracted! :)
18,000 of these are being
sold to your local LEOs

The Connecticut Gun Control Laws Explained In 2 Minutes
So cheap even a caveman could afford them.
I do recall we sold an aircraft carrier a few weeks back for $1.00.
Those rigs are heavy, and get lousy fuel mileage and tire life. They were basically built to transport troops over roads potentially containing IEDs.
I suspect they will spend 99.7% of their time in parking lots.
Look at it this way: Gun sales have been way up as of late - part of that surge has to be people getting extras for safe keeping.
Like they give a crap about fuel mileage.
"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
Guess who said that.
Haven’t been paying attention, have you?
