Libs rejoice: Long lines, frustration mark Connecticut gun registration

Gun owners in deep blue Connecticut are getting a taste of what the rest of the country would look like if Democrats had their way.

With a deadline of Jan. 1 to register high-capacity magazines and any gun that qualifies as an “assault weapon,” gun owners are facing long lines to comply with a law that will make them felons after Wednesday.

onnlines1227“I understand why they’re doing it, but I don’t think it’s constitutional,” gun owner Scott Boccio told WFSB-TV 3.

It’s also probably pointless to achieve the law’s alleged aim of keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, since criminals, by definition, don’t comply with laws.

“If people are going to do things illegally, they’re not going to be here registering their gun,” said gun owner Jared Krajewski, who is clearly not a member of the state’s General Assembly, where Democrats hold a near two-thirds majority in both houses.

Democrats also hold the govenor’s office in the person of Dannel Malloy, a buddy of soon-to-be-former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and vocal advocate of national gun registrations and other infringements of the right to bear arms.

Connecticut’s law was passed after last December’s massacre of 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the attack by a lunatic that sparked a cynical effort by gun-grabbers in Washington, D.C., to impose new restrictions on gun ownership nationwide.

Why the DMV-class lines in the Nutmeg State?

Because gun owners apparently aren’t filling out the forms to the bureaucrats’ satisfaction.

“People don’t realize the entire form must be filled out completely,” a state police lieutenant told WFSB. “And if it requires a notary, it should be notarized before coming here. That’s what’s causing the massive line.”

Actually, what’s causing the massive line is the law itself. No one even pretends to believe that Connecticut’s gun-registration law would have stopped Adam Lanza’s madness from turning into murder.

But what the law does is provide the information – identifying civilian arms and ammunition – that will make it one step easier for the government to disarm its populace if it chooses.

That this is happening under Democrats isn’t a surprise. That it’s in New England, where the first battles of the Revolution were fought to prevent a tyrannical government’s attempt to confiscate caches of arms, is a disgrace.

    Wow, I cannot believe I am seeing this, people talk the talk, but when it comes to walk the walk they are walking right down to register their guns… CT is going to hell and I am sure happy I live in TX… If you are scared of guns then move to that state, if you are for freedom and rights come to TX, just do not come here and vote for any dumb Democrats, we have enough stupid ones coming here from CA that have F*cked up their state and bankrupted it now they are trying to mess us up. Good luck for when they try and push this on the rest of the country… How much more are the people of the USA going to stand for this crap? Waiting for the government to save you, oh wait, it is the government that is doing it to you… guess you will have to stand on your own two feet and fight for your rights before you only have the ones you are willing to pay for or the government is going to let you have at the current time. A sad day in this country for sure, rest in peace CT.

    Problem here is the word Felon . The fact that our congress are all felons does not seem to matter . Our rights and constitution already trashed ,if you call the police for anything and they search your home and find a unregistered gun ,you are now a felon my friend , no gun ownership allowed , probably loose your job and the list goes on. Here is your hope and change people I hope it comes in handy when your guns are all taken or you become a felon.

    The next thing you know they’ll be making it nearly impossible for a woman to have access to an abortion even if she is raped. Sure abortion will still be technically legal but if they put enough barriers in the way less women will get them. This is what happens when you let liberals be in charge!

    No one has the courage to ask why is it that about 4% of the
    population commits about 50% of the murders in this country? Why is it that no one acknowledges that the black population in this country is being terrorized by a feral black male gangsta culture that kills primarily as the result of arguments? Why is it that the murder rate among blacks is 6.4 times the murder rate of non-blacks? How could it be that the murder rate among blacks without guns is higher than the non-black murder rate with guns? We could save about 4,000 black lives every year if we could solve this cultural problem yet the media never acknowledges it and the democrat “regressives” keep arguing that if any gun law could save just one life it would be worth it? How about fixing this feral cultural problem and saving 4,000 black lives every year?

    The sorry fact is that the Newtown school board enabled the slaughter at Sandy Hook . Under the 1994 Federal Gun Free School Zone Act, the board could have authorized armed deterrence at Sandy Hook. Instead, like almost all other school boards, it relied upon signs that filtered out concealed carry people with good intentions. Unfortunately, these signs were not capable of stopping people with bad intentions who could shoot out the doors during lock down. The really tragic fact is that Newton was different than just about all other school districts simply because it was unlucky.
