Firearm Registration: Formerly Law-Abiding Connecticut Gun Owners Face Increased Pressure

Connecticut-firearm-registration-equals-confiscation-PFTR

As rumours of door-to-door gun confiscations run wild on the internet, Connecticut gun owners who were law-abiding citizens on December 31, 2013, are now criminals under a new law banning so-called “assault weapons”.

State officials continue to ratchet up the rhetoric about these heinous threats to public safety, while gun owners realize once again that Firearm Registration Equals Firearm Confiscation.

Connecticut’s Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection announced Friday it sent a letter to all known firearm owners who failed to register their firearms and magazines by the January 1, 2014 deadline.

Officials offered advice on what to do now with the weapons and magazines.

The letter says gun owners are in compliance with the new state law if their items are no longer in Connecticut or were sold to an authorized gun dealer.

Those who fail to comply face charges of possessing an unregistered assault weapon and/or high capacity magazine.

As Canada’s RCMP just accomplished here in Canada with their reclassification of formerly non-restricted firearms, Connecticut lawmakers devalued the firearm collections of law-abiding gun owners across the state.

While mere citizens may retain ownership and possession of their now-illegal items, that possession comes at a cost. You must register each “assault rifle” and “high capacity magazine” or face criminal charges.

You may ONLY transfer ownership/possession of your now-illegal items to law-enforcement, a licensed firearms dealer or anyone outside the State of Connecticut.

From the State of Connecticut Department of Emergency Services document (pdf) regarding P.A.13-3:

Q: As a private citizen, will I ever be able to legally transfer ownership of my Large Capacity Magazines?

A: Yes. Under the Act, you may transfer your LCMs to any police department and you may legally sell them to a licensed dealer or to anyone outside the state. You may also transfer your lawfully declared LCMs by bequest or intestate succession (i.e. you died without a will), or, upon the death of a testator or settlor: (A) To a trust, or (B) from a trust to a beneficiary. Any other transfer is a Class D felony.

We mere citizens may rest easy knowing that these restrictions on our private property rights do NOT affect serving law enforcement members.

They only apply to the mere citizens of the allegedly democratic state of Connecticut.

As I have said many times before paraphrasing George Orwell’s Animal Farm,

Some pigs are more equal than others.

It’s Adam Vaughn’s Wet Dream Come True! Washington, DC, charges Veteran for Possession of Unregistered Ammunition

Toronto City Councillor and all-around idiot Adam Vaughn must be just about wetting himself at the thought of being able to send decent Canadians to prison for the heinous “crime” of owning a legal product, namely ammunition.

No doubt Vaughn’s inspiration for his blatantly stupid bylaw proposal to outlaw ammunition in Toronto comes from that great bastion of stupid gun laws, Washington, DC.  There officials have managed to screw things up so badly they’ve charged former Army Specialist Adam Meckler for the “crime” of having “unregistered ammunition”.

Adam Meckler isn’t some lunatic wanting to kill anyone.  He’s a veteran who has served his nation faithfully in both Afghanistan and Iraq.  How is he repaid for that good and faithful service?  He’s treated like a criminal in his own country.

It’s as disgusting as it is absurd.

To quote Emily Miller’s column in the Washington Times:

There is no legitimate public safety reason for criminalizing ammunition possession. It only serves to punish law-abiding gun owners doing normal activities, such as what happened to Spc. Meckler.

Meckler did not have a firearm, just some spare rounds of ammunition left over from a recent trip to the range.  He was attempting to provide Veterans Affairs with information they required about his medical records when he was treated as though he was about to detonate a bomb inside the White House!

“I was thinking, what is in my bag? I thought, there is no way it’s a gun, all my guns are locked up. I’d made sure there were no knives in the bag.”

Naturally his explanation of what had happened fell on deaf ears.  Nobody cared.

“Gun Control” kills. Here’s how…

gun-control-kills-people

The advocates of “gun control” are forever telling us that guns are too dangerous for mere citizens to use.  It’s just not safe, they say.  That mentality has always bothered me because what are police officers except mere citizens with a little training?

Anyone can become proficient in the skills needed to handle firearms safely.  Training facilities like Front Sight can give you that training over the course of a single weekend.  It’s hardly difficult.

But those who despise firearms, and the right to self-defense generally, always claim that only killers have guns.  It’s bullsh*t, of course, as study after study shows that firearms are used defensively millions of times per year in the United States without ever firing a shot.  Merely showing the aggressor or home invader the firearm is usually enough to stop the attack.

Cases like young mother Sarah Dawn McKinley are the exception, where the home invader is too stupid to comprehend they are about to lose their life if they don’t stop.  For those who don’t recall the case, Sarah had just buried her husband earlier earlier on New Year’s Day 2012, and was home alone with her baby when two morons decided that was the perfect time to break into her home to rape her and steal any medication that might have been left over from her husband.

That moronic decision cost one of the home invaders his life, and so it should.  Every single time.

Why should a young widow and her baby be forced to submit to the deranged demands of two thugs?  Because the Rosie O’Donnells of the world say so while they hide behind armed bodyguards?

Here is an awesome video showing the end result of that sort of stupidity… (more…)
