    Connecticut Carry - Press Release

    Connecticut Carry - Press Release - To Officials of the State of Connecticut: Either Enforce or Repeal 2013 Anti-gun Laws.

    "To Officials of the State of Connecticut: Either Enforce or Repeal 2013 Anti-gun Laws.

    It’s time for the State to enforce the tyranny they passed or repeal it entirely. "



    Connecticut Carry delivers a glove-slap challenge to the face of the shameless legislators and Governor who betrayed their own state's colonial-era patriots.

    Another sign of growing unrest in the Land of Steady Habits:

    The gauntlet has been thrown down. My guess is the state will ignore it and do nothing. An attempt to enforce the law may very well bring open revolt of the people. To repeal the law would admit they either were wrong or have no backbone.

    Which is hilarious, because everybody knows they're wrong AND they have no backbone, but they really hate to admit it.

    You could very well be correct, but I see a major court case coming on. I hope the people win this battle.

    It may not result in a revolt or any sort of violence at all if they attempt to enforce the law. It would however make them look like a gaggle of hamfisted buffoons and they know it.

    I predict there will be a shift on legislative party control this year in CT and that the new party control will repeal some, if not all of the gun ban. It's in the hands of the voters; will they continue to sit on their butts and complain or will the get out and vote the crooks out? I believe in our system of government and that the people deserve the government they vote into office.

    Those who enacted this need to be thrown out on their butts. They have created a situation that makes them look ridiculous and places the citizenry in danger.

    To me this is a perfect example of a few thinking they know what's best for all others.

    I know that the two sides will never agree on what should or shouldn't be law, however I don't understand why each side can't sit and discuss like adults. Every person on both sides has their own opinion and probably no one is 100% correct. But why can't they come to some kind of compromise as to what works and what doesn't. What is constitutional and what isn't.

    But as John Luttrel states above, we the people get what we vote for. I don't know how many people I talk to that complain about something in the government only to find out they didn't even vote.

    Connecticut Carry should hire an editor for their press releases.

    Following a big win CT should also get a recall provision in place.

    Agreed...While their intentions are good, writing with the grammar skills of a 7th grader isn't going to convince anyone whose opinion matters.

    this is a huge problem with government. they have so many laws (criminal, regulations, IRS, etc...) on the books that are selectively enforced that everyone is on the hook for something, depending on whether you get caught or how the govt feels at the moment.

    They should be forced to enforce all laws equally and consistently, or remove them. I hate that they leave nooses hanging over people's heads.

    Look at the huge intimidation the IRS did targeting conservative groups last election? This could happen very easily in CT against gun owners. Not all gunowners are going to be willing to be made example of if they are targeted. The threat overhang really is intimidating and hampers people being vocal about various issues in order to stay off the radar.

    Look at the moron David Gregory on Meet the Depressed tv show, having a banned 'assault mag' on live TV and not being prosecuted.

    same with fauxbamacare. The terrible policy should be made to be implemented as passed with no exceptions so everyone feels the pain, rather than the executive branch exempting politcal allies and selectively enforcing and changing the law as they see fit inconsistently on the fly. Implement the dang thing as written or repeal it.

    So the smoke starts to rise. Now we see if CT Goverment has the sense to see it and back down or fan the flames. The citizens have spoken in no uncertain terms.

    How would the gov't know you have the sporting rifle if you do not register it? The only people that got the confiscation letter are those that submitted the forms past the registration period. Are the ploice going to go door to door in every house hold in CT and ask if they could look around? Would the police be able to get search warrents on every house in CT? I know if the police came to my house to "ask" if I had a rifle, they would be shown the way off my property.

    The only way to enforce it is to actually see you with the rifle or find it after they arrest you for something else.
