Friday, June 27th, 2014, 0-dark-thiry: The politicians have made their decision. By a twist of fate–your file simply happened to be on the top of the stack for no particular reason–you’ll be the first example. A state police SWAT team pull to the curb in front of your home, leap from their van and rush to your front door. Two black-clad men pull back a ram and swing it toward your front door, aiming just above the knob, while the rest of the team waits anxiously, their automatic weapons charged and off safe. Two hope they’ll get the opportunity to shoot. At least one wants to manufacture the opportunity. You’ve made two major mistakes; they will cost your life and destroy your family: you live in a blue state where the governor and legislature have no respect for the Constitution and the lives and liberty of citizens, and you were foolish enough to obey the law.These people are serious about this.
Connecticut legislators passed a law last year requiring that all 'military style' firearms, and 'high capacity magazines' be registered by the beginning of 2014.
A few residents have complied; most have not ... estimates range to around 150,000 unregistered firearms and approximately 300,000 to 3 MILLION unregistered "high capacity" magazines (in excess of 10 rounds capacity).
People are starting to wonder .... hey, this is unconstitutional so I'm going to ignore these buffoons, but what happens when they send armed buffoons to take my guns?"
The link takes you to a fictional "what if?" scenario, which has not been enacted.
That's right. People in Connecticut are beginning to wonder how The State is going to enforce these laws. They're thinking Jack-Booted Gestapo raids in the night.
Read the whole article, right down to the end, and especially click on the red link toward the end to hear the phone call from a concerned wife to a state policeman .... who clearly doesn't know how to answer her questions about "when will you come to take our guns, and what will you do to us?"
These people are serious about this. Both the State, and the Citizens.
