CT Gov to Gunowner: ‘You Lost,’ Gun Control Proponents Won. (Talk about arrogance!!!!)
Tea PARTY ^ | Mar 18, 2014 | Breitbart

Posted on 03/18/2014 7:41:13 PM PDT by progunner

During a March 13 town hall meeting at John Barry Elementary School in Meriden, Connecticut, Governor Dannel P. Malloy (D) told a gun owner that gun control proponents won and “you lost.”

Malloy made this statement in response to questions about the constitutionality of the gun laws he signed into law in 2013.

He did not explain why a court tasked with judging constitutionality judged “appropriateness” instead.

My take Gov. Malloy is this: The judge DIDN'T rule on it because he sees' a s**t storm coming down the pike and merely shrugged you off with a few words just to passify you. No Gov. (a title you DO NOT deserve) Malloy, I believe you lost and the gun owners won. I don't cotton to arrogant people Gov. Malloy and I don't think that the residents of CT. will take it lightly either. What I do believe Gov. Malloy is that you have a problem on your hands. I darn sure wouldn't want to be in your "Buster Browns". Rots a Ruck !!!!

Hey Guv!

We didn’t “lose” anything!

The Second Amendment STILL applies!

Your mindless “rules” are clearly having NO EFFECT on either COMPLIANCE OR ENFORCEMENT!!!

If a deranged mentally ill young adult ran down 27 pedestrians downtown, killing them, would all those who own cars be blamed?

“You lost.” Straight outta Skippy’s playbook. Straight from the fires of hell, where Uncle Saul lives.

I like that. No governor or any other elected official can take away our natural right to self-defense. SHALL NOT be infringed.

It has always been the case, no?

Malloy has always been a arrogant jerk. He only “won” thanks to vote Bridgeport, where they “accidentally” ran out of ballots and extended voting several more hours.

Where 90% refuse to comply, and even non-gun owners agree the law was stupid and will not have any effect on crime, YOU have the problem Gov. I don’t recall him ever having a majority of support on this issue. I believe he is just doing it to make Obama like him for a possible Fed job come Nov.

Sounds like the gun owners of Connecticut need to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights.

This should get interesting. With the stroke of a pen they made between 25,000 and 350,000 class D felons. That is the number estimated to have not complied. These people have done nothing wrong, they broke no law. And yet, it is a mandatory 1 year jail sentence.

This was done in CA around 1998 with SKS. With to stroke of a pen, they determined all SKS had to be registered. Only a few did so. The governor sayed that even though the law was passed, they would not enforce it, yet.

But it seems the people in CT are not willing to sit on it, but are more active towards pushing it.

We shall see.

He has always acted like a dictator. When we had several bad storms hit CT and knock out power, in some cases 100% of most of the towns north of I84, within 48 hours he was throwing the POCO under the bus for not magically fixing everyones power. I suspect he wants a FedGov job with Obama, hence his dictator like actions.

For future reference, so that it looks like you occasionally have picked up a book, the past tense of “to say” is “SAID” not “sayed.” Please stop giving our enemies ammo to say we are “stupid and illiterate.” Try turning on spell check. When you see a wavy red line under a word, 9 out of 10 times it means you have screwed up.

Yes, we have the righteousness of good history on our side. We should never forget this when doing our duty as “[T]the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” by Thomas Jefferson.

“All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” (Marbury vs.Madison, 1803.)

“Every law consistent with the Constitution will have been made in pursuance of the powers granted by it. Every usurpation or law repugnant to it cannot have been made in pursuance of its powers. The latter will be nugatory and void.” (Thomas Jefferson, Elliot, p. 4:187-88.)

“There is no position which depends on clearer principles than that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.” (Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, #78.)

“Clearly, a federal law which is contrary to the Constitution is no law at all; it is null, void, invalid. And a Supreme Court decision, which is not a ‘law,’ has no ‘supremacy’—even if it is faithfully interpreting the Constitution. So it is the height of absurdity to claim that a Supreme Court decision that manifestly violates the Constitution is the ‘supreme law of the land.’” (William Jasper)

Yea, I noticed that after I pushed post and couldn’t go back and fix it after that.

Your point is well taken regarding giving our enemies ammo to say we are “stupid and illiterate.”

Of course it could also gall your opponents that in spite of silly little typos you managed to say it clearly and plainly.

Since there is “popular clamor” in CT for this, it looks like the storm clouds of civil war are gathering. Who’s going to flinch? In the meantime why not the power of public demonstrations. Go out with model guns bearing signs that “don’t you wish one of us had been at Sandy Hook?”

Yes, I was thinking of a similar public demonstration. But whereas even model guns can seem hostile, I was thinking of an empty high capacity magazine.

Malloy was sworn in on January 5, 2011.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

The moron is up for re-election.

I believe there will be a rather large number of highly motivated voters come campaign time...

And they AIN'T gonna be motivated for the good Mr. Malloy.
