State officials have found that tens of thousands of residents are flouting a gun law that required those in possession of military-style rifles to register them with the state police by the end of 2013.
According to the Hartford Courant, the rifles should have been registered by Dec. 31 of last year. However, police officials have discovered that an estimated 15 percent of all rifles classified as so called assault weapons have been registered by gun owners throughout Connecticut.
Police received a total of 47,916 finished applications by the end of 2013, with 2,100 other applications pending completion. At least 20,000 new criminals could exist in the state due to their failure to comply with the Un-Constitutional gun registry. It appears that our fine government is in the business of making criminals of everyday, law abiding citizens now.
State Sen. Tony Guglielmo commented on the matter,
“I honestly thought from my own standpoint that the vast majority would register, If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don’t follow them, then you have a real problem.”
When you pass laws that are a direct violation of our constitutional rights you better expect major push back.
Mike Lawlor, the state’s top official in criminal justice, said that despite the far-reaching nature of the problem, an aggressive search for those who have failed to comply is unlikely. Instead, he said it is more likely that a letter would be sent to residents on the matter.
The anti-gunner collective view on this matter is what I would expect.
“While many are refusing to comply with the law, others are claiming ignorance of the law.”
In a sense the claims of ignorance have merit, if you view the law from the eyes of the poor souls that the Connecticut legislators are attacking. There is no doubt in my mind that the law makers of Connecticut are ignorant, law breaking, anti American progressives.
Scott Wilson, president of the 12,000-member Connecticut Citizens Defense League, a Second Amendment advocacy group, also commented.
“There are a lot of people, they just do not know about this law, there are people finding out now after the fact.”
Last Friday, Connecticut’s two U.S. senators heard emotional accounts of the toll of urban gun violence as they held a forum in New Haven to hear from activists, police and others about how to address the problem.
Physical Violence has been a long-running problem in Connecticut’s cities. New Haven had 20 killings last year, while Bridgeport had 13 and Hartford had 24, police said.
Remember the names of the Connecticut representatives, they need to be removed from office. The citizens of this fine country need to fight back and right now that calls for the removal of any and all representatives that are in utter violation of their oath to defend the constitution of the United States of America.
I leave you with a short ironic statement to feed on.
“If making firearms illegal will remove them from the streets, then we should also make Heroin and Meth illegal.”
