Et Tu Connecticut?

We’ve all heard about the Second Amendment infringing legislation recently passed in New York and Colorado. Now, our friends in Connecticut are facing an equally frightening threat to their Constitutional Right to bear arms. Tomorrow, lawmakers will vote on a Emergency Certification Bill (E-Cert) which fast tracks the bill through the legislative process.

If passed into law, this bill will –

-Bans nearly all commonly owned firearms used for self-defense, arbitrarily adding more than 100 new firearms to the gun ban list.
-Bans the sale, purchase and transfer of magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition.
-Creates a magazine registration scheme.
-Requires an eligibility certificate for the purchase of any rifle or shotgun that mandates a training course, fingerprinting and a voluntary/involuntary mental health admissions check.
-Requires an eligibility certificate and a background check to purchase ammunition.
-Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm.

To read everything included in this legislation currently at the Connecticut state house, visit nraila.org/media/11152847/press-conference-material-4-1-13.pdf and visit the NRA ILA for ways to help stop this legislation.

    Seriously, it’s like these states are falling over themselves to out stupid each other and drink the kool aid even faster.

    Bravo. Legislators, reps and dems, listened to their constituents. The fringes are out. The majority spoke. Parents.from Newtown along with neihbors drove this through

      You are joking… by stomping on the Bill of Rights and ignoring the documents that they swore an allegiance to uphold and defend they are doing a great job? Forget the fringe…

      60% of gun related fatalities are suicides…

      1/2 of 1% of gun fatalities are with AR style weapons…

      Columbine was committed with 10 round magazines…

      Sandy hook was carried out with two hand guns… (AR was found in the car)

      Get your head out of the sand! we have a metal health issue NOT a gun problem.

      Indeed, the agenda-based use of tragic death SHOULD be celebrated! Extra points awarded when the deaths are those of children, and when the idiotic legislation that has already been crafted serves, in reality, to ensure that a shooter’s right to murder on a campus is in no way adversely affected.

      I don’t suppose that the actual events mean much to what is, apparently, a know-nothing majority…but the first measure implemented to stop those kids from being harmed, was to call people with weapons. By the way, the freedom-based notion of allowing adults to engage in activities allegedly protected by the constitution of these here United States was put on trial by one Chuck Whitman, back in the mid-60s. A former Marine, he knew his way around all kinds of weaponry, and scored a casualty score of around 50 people, dead and injured.

      It was when students and local Austinites went to dorm rooms, vehicles, etc, got out their rifles and began to fire, that Whitman had to keep his head down. That allowed Austin PD to get to him and settle to matter once and for all.

      As with any law enforcement matter, cops are most effective when the local populace helps them do their job. Teachers who already hold concealed carry licenses have already been investigated in order to hold the license, and it would take nothing to train them to remain in place, draw their weapon, lock their classroom doors, turn off the lights, and move their students into the opposite side of the room.

      I defy you to name one actually helpful thing that comes from this idiotic legislative proposal. One.

    There is overwhelming, irrefutable evidence that gun control doesn’t work. It has nothing to do with “the children” or safety, it’s about control.

    This is nothing more than the deliberate, impulsive, and emotional exploitation of an emotionally volatile situation. Pushing an agenda and standing on the graves of those poor children to do it.

    Call me a member of the tinfoil hat crowd, but Sandy Hook still doesn’t add up. How does an isolationist autistic kid with little to no firearms experience rack up a bodycount of 26, nearly all of them headshots, in under a quarter of an hour?

    • Doc B says:

      The targets were mainly post-toddler children. They, thankfully in the overall sense, have not lived in an environment where they must be taught to run and hide as a mechanism of survival. That IS a good thing when you take stock of a society, but it is a deficit when applied to this in particular. Children that age tend to be curious and to trust grown-ups on the whole, rather than to apply a suspicious eye toward them. They simply haven’t had time to learn what the world has in it, yet.

      It is a shame that the state laws in place, and those being considered currently, serve not to protect anyone, serve not even to keep a tragedy like this from happening again, but served to protect the gunman and will serve to protect anyone who wants to imitate him in the future.

      In any environment as crowded as a school, getting off a kill shot every 30 seconds would not seem to me to be an unbelievable feat. That’s one reason I find restrictive laws like this to be wrong.

    Conneticut still welcomes manufacturers to export from their state.

    Even the fucking “republicans” here in CT seem to be good with this, it was being proclaimed to be the greatest because it had bipartisan approval. I’ll remember this if I’m here still for the next election and will vote every single Republican that voted for this out that I can vote for
