In the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, the state of Connecticut has passed ill-advised, knee-jerk, legislation forcing the registration of the usual suspects of the gun-grabbers – high capacity magazines and ‘assault rifles’. No, not the registration of NEW purchases of these items – the registration of ALL such items legally purchased and owned by CT citizens. The citizens had a few months to comply with the states’ demand that they come forth and register them at designated locations across the state. And, indeed some did. But, therein lies the problem. Out of an estimated 350,000 owners of the now illegal weapons and magazines, only a few thousand actually came forward to submit to the tyranny of the state. This instantly created several hundred thousand new ‘felons’ across the Nutmeg State who refused to comply with the order.
The new felons have recently been issued a second letter stating that they are in violation of the law, but just how far will the gun-grabbers in the State House go to enforce the law against 300,000 or so heavily armed, 2nd amendment supporters is the 64 thousand dollar question. This situation warrants your close attention. Things could get very ugly in CT and spread rapidly if cooler heads do not prevail. Follow daily developments here at the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog.
