Confiscation of Firearms
Came across the following article on zerohedge.
Not sure what the whole story is but wanted to see if we have any members who can speak to this event or the similar situation that occured in New Orleans after Katrina?
I see that this thread hasn't been active in a while, but it seemed like the place to start.
Does anyone want to weigh in on the situation in Connecticut. The YouTube chatter would seem to suggest that this could get dangerous, at the same time it would seem to be completely logistically impossible for Connecticut to enforce this law. If the police try to enforce this law some ones going to get shot, If they don't then why should citizens obey any law. In 1776 only 3% of the population took up arms, today that would be 10,000,000 people, probably all of whom would be carrying AR or AK variant rifles.
The main stream media doesn't seem to following this and web chatter is what it is. Any thoughts?
I posed the same question on the firearms thread a few weeks ago. no reponse.
I live in rural Va. there would be no confiscation here, only blood shed i fear.
Don't buy into the MSM propaganda. The vast majority of LEO and rank-and-file military support the 2A.
Some may try, but it would backfire horribly.
I've been keeping an eye on MSM commentary online in my neighboring States. Even Vermont had some weenie rep in the Burlington area who literally copied Feinstein's Bill word-for-word and tried to get it rammed through the Vermont legislature at the time. Luckily it never got out of committee. A lot of sportsman had to roar in anger at our reps for violating both 2nd Amendment AND our State Constitution to make our point. The mere attempt was enough to have every private range in the area end their relationship with the LEO orgs. If you ever read that legislation you realize that it was poorly written and therefore difficult to enforce. I read where one blogger from CT made the point that most owners of modern-day sporting firearms 'Are Familiar With the Finer Points of Marksmanship.'
The bleacher perspective I have to say that I am enjoying the position that the CT State has placed themselves in. If I could, I would purchase a safe and offer to store some of their firearms/ammo in a safe place. Unfortunately that is unrealistic and simply creates a different problem (OpSec). The best that can be done, I'm afraid, is to support the victims of such piss poor legislation when they call for that support.
There but for the grace of God go I! We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately!
So many great quotes, so little time! Cheers!
