Admittedly, Vance was in a corner, but it was one of his own making. The Connecticut Legislature has made thousands of formerly legal gun owners into Class D felons overnight. According to the Washington Examiner, A woman was asking what could happen to her and her husband if he missed the deadline to “register” the “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.
You will remember Vance from his moments of fame at the Sandy Hook massacre.
It offers us a straightforward look at the mindset behind the forces who shamelessly spit on the Second Amendment and think that anyone who opposes a textbook totalitarian move like gun registration is un-American. These people have convinced themselves that supine compliance with insane and unconstitutional laws is the hallmark of patriotism. Everyone else is the enemy.
If you’re not on your knees then you must be knocked off your feet.
There are massive numbers of Connecticut residents who are not yet on their knees—so many that the state government is trying to cover them up.
So what is the state planning to do to people who have disobeyed the law?
Some of you may remember how the Ankeny Police Department raided a house in full battle gear—a raid that almost came to bloodshed. They justified themselves on the basis that a resident at the home, who was not even a suspect, had applied for a carry permit. When I wrote about this justification for a SWAT raid I mentioned how this would give people in Connecticut more reason to believe they should not register their weapons.
Apparently officials in Connecticut are a step ahead of me.
According to another Examiner.com post,
Ed Jacovino of The Journal Inquirer further stated that Michael P. Lawler, a top aide to Gov. Dannel Malloy, contends that the state will punish those who missed the registration deadline whether they intended to or not.
According to Jacovino,
And while the state won’t immediately prosecute those who missed the deadline, it isn’t ignoring that information, either.
The rifle and magazine declarations will be included in information given to police responding to a certain address. “This would be a factor in deciding how to respond to different situations,” Lawlor says.
Read that statement closely.
Yes, do. What do you think happens if you call the police and they look for your name on that list?
