Skip to comments.Connecticut activists ready to ‘ramp up the pressure'

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.

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.
