Default Gun registration fails in Ct

Since very few seem to trust their gov't, the anti's are trying to figure out what their next move is.

Connecticut scrambles for amnesty plan after realizing that citizens are refusing to register their ?assault weapons? and ?high capacity? magazines

"Shall not be infringed."
Has a nice ring to it.

They can only infringe if we let them.

That's very interesting and heartening to hear of a push back. I only pray that it doesn't happen here in Va. now that we have an anti gun Gov.
So far the pros hold the senate, but its close.
It just confounds me that this battle never ends even though the REAL facts are that the majority of Americans are pro gun ownership in one form or another.

Most Americans have no clue what's best for them. It's the .gov's job to provide guidance, education and, when necessary, more stern measures when the unruly serfs might get some ideas that aren't in their best interests.

All hail Dear Leader!

I'm in Virginia also. The problem here is that Northern Virginia and the Tidewater area control how the entire state falls in these elections. The more those areas grow and spread out, the more state seats they can grab. Pretty soon, VA will be a blue state all over. We are seriously discussing leaving VA all together now. Looking at either Northern FL near St Augustine or Northern Texas after out daughter graduates.

I hear you but if we keep leaving, they keep winning.
Need to get people motivated and active in resisting these affronts. I'll stop here so as not to be too political.

Connecticutt, one of the original 13 Colonies, and situated quite near the scene of North America's first attempt to disarm the citizenry in 1775 leading to the opening shots of the (first?) American Revolution.

That revolution was not strongly supported by a majority of the population. Relatively few supported the revolt, and many actively sided with the King's forces against their neighbors in revolt. Others fled to Canada and England. Many merchants and farmers refused to provide supplies to those involved in the revolution. Even after the Continental Army was formed it was difficult to recruit citizens into its service, enlistments were typically limited to about 90 days, and many simply went back home when the new Continental Congress was unable to feed, clothe, shelter, or pay them. Those known to be involved frequently saw their homes destroyed, their businesses and land confiscated, and their families disappear.

Even so, what was thought to be impossible actually happened. Rag-tag colonials succeeded in resisting tyranny, defeated one of the best military forces of that time (as well as the mercenaries paid by the King to suppress the rebellion). A new nation came into being, one dedicated to the rights of individual citizens and the principles of self-determination and self-government.

The Tree of Liberty was planted; now those who would rule the lives of others are intent upon pruning that tree. As Mr. Jefferson commented, from time to time the Tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Every one of us who holds our liberties dear, those of us who cherish our Constitution, owe our support to our fellow citizens in Connecticutt who are now standing up against a government that has forgotten its proper purpose.

Mr. Jefferson also spoke of the individual duty to resist tyranny. Peaceful civil disobedience (refusal to comply with unconstitutional laws) is honorable and, arguably, a protected form of the freedoms of speech and association. Coupled with good use of the soap box and the ballot box, we may yet be able to avoid resorting to the bullet box this time around.

As this situation in Connecticutt develops every one of us needs to look for means by which we can support our fellow citizens. Speaking in support, letters to the editor, funds for campaigning and legal services, all can make a difference.

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing a few hundred thousand Americans join up in Connecticutt for a public demonstration, each with an unregistered large-capacity magazine publicly displayed. I seriously doubt that Connecticutt has enough empty jail cells, trial court capabilities, or the will to attempt to arrest us all.

Peaceful civil disobedience, conducted by large groups of citizens and repeated regularly as well as over a wide portion of the state, might just get the would-be usurpers of individual rights to sing a different tune.

Road trip time?

For those of you in CT who do not know who the REAL Mike Lawlor ( Malloys henchman) is, read this. You may be shocked. Or not.

It's nice to know that Colorado has it written in their Constitution that gun registration is forbidden.

L13,
I've been trying to find out how many of our fellow New Yorkers have registered their semi auto rifles and have had no luck. I'm thinking our illustrious Governor might be having the same problem as they are having in Conn.

I suspect the majority of these gun owners will simply put them in storage and wait for the law to be repealed. I doubt the government will be aware of these guns, unless they are registered, and the owners know this.
