Connecticut “Thinks” They Are Up For Confiscating Guns…

My bet is that if they try this, it may look like this.

This unfolding pre-revolutionary saga in the land of Colt, Mossberg, and Ruger is going to be interesting to watch.  I watched earlier when the line of sheep who decided to prepare to disarm themselves stood in lines to ensure that the government had all their pertinents and such, so that the government would know that they were on the up and up, evil black rifle-ly speaking.

But now, it appears that what is happening is that a great many of the good citizens of the Nutmeg State decided to forgo the bowing to the government and surrendering their liberty; thereby making themselves felons through the possession of something that was previously legal, but now is not.  I wonder if they have seen the Ken Burns documentary on Prohibition?  Quite compelling if you ask me.

But by failing to accede to the demands of their “betters”  I guess they are proving the maxim of “only criminals will always have guns.”  My guess is that the legislators thought that all the good sheep would just line up and do as they were told, but it didn’t work out that way.

Which leads me to the winner of our daily “most deliciously self unaware politician” being awarded to Connecticut State Senator Tony Guglielmo.  His reply to the Hartford Courant is the most priceless thing I have heard this week.

“I honestly thought from my standpoint that the vast majority would register.  If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don’t follow them, then you have a real problem.”

Really?  You don’t say?  Like not having respect for the laws against gun-running and then allowing a government agency you are the head of to run guns into a foreign country?  Or maybe like not respecting and not following a duly passed law by Congress that the President signed into law because it is now wrecking the nations health care system and it makes him look bad, and then allowing the Congress to exempt themselves as well?  The reason they don’t respect the law is that you have no respect for the law yourself.  Anyone else read their Declaration of Independence lately?

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance…..  He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation….  For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent….  For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments….

So if the educated buffoons that run Connecticut and inhabit most every state house and out house in the centers of power pass a law that says that in no uncertain terms I need a permit to attend church, or to register myself with the government in order to speak about politics as I walk down the street, and if I don’t follow that law, we, the citizens are going to have a “real problem?”  I would be the first to ask what kind of problem is that going to be Senator?  Do you plan to arrest them?  Are you going to turn Connecticut into a penal colony?

Let me tell you what Connecticut’s “real problem” is Senator; you guys think that the citizens who elected you serve you and not the other way around.

My husband has an AR-15.  It is, according to him, an exact civilian replica of the one he spent much time carrying about the battlefields of the world where he spent some time.  I know that one time, because I heard him tell the story to a friend, that he used it to fight his way into a place to reinforce a unit that had been surrounded, and then used it to fight his way back out.

From that one story, and watching him at the range, I was able to determine that the safest place for me to be if spineless shells of men like Senator Guglielmo ever come to take my liberty is going to be about 2 feet behind him, handing him ammunition.

So Senator Guglielmo, you might want to have a change of panties because I am about to say something that is going to frighten you past the point of bladder control:

There is not a law that you can make that will give you the right to do what is wrong.  There are so many other citizens like my husband, who are willing to die fighting in order to keep their rights to defend themselves and their family.  You will never find them all, and you will never beat them all.  This country doesn’t have enough police and military members who share your views and are like minded enough to take by force all of the guns that free citizens possess.  You will orphan many children and widow many wives on both sides trying to take from citizens what you cannot lawfully take; their right to defend themselves.  The citizens are not your serfs and you are not royalty.  They do not need a “by your leave” to exercise their rights to own a gun in the same way they do not need a “mother may I” from you to attend a church of their choosing, speak out in the public square, or petition the government for the redress of grievances.

When citizens have guns, government cannot deal with them by force.  They have to use reason and try to persuade them, because they have a way to negate the threat or employment of force.  It would be wise of you to remember who you work for Senator.  It is these same citizens whom you are trying to force into disarmed criminal servitude.  Perhaps starting from a point of reason, instead of modeling your program after the one created by the Weimar Republic wherein you just exchange the word “jew” for “gun owner” or “2nd Amendment advocate.”

The person ultimately that is going to have a “real problem” is going to be politicians like you.

    Have you ever driven in Connecticut? The speed limit in Interstate 84 is between 55 and 65 MPH, depending on where in the state you happen to be. Now, on a clear, dry, sunny day, just what percentage of the drivers do you think are driving at or below the speed limit? Or wear their seat belts?

    How ’bout marijuana and other recreational pharmaceuticals? What percentage of people above 15 in the Nutmeg State have never smoked pot? And do you think that Senator Guglielmo wants to throw them all in jail?

    We are a nation of independent cusses, and we obey the laws which are actually necessary, and pretty much give lip service — at best — to the ones which are stupid.

    You have to wonder if these attempts at revoking our rights aren’t orchestrated to evaluate public reaction nationwide, and it gives me great comfort to see the citizens of a liberal stronghold like Connecticut send a bold message to the administration by refusing to submit to illegal laws.

    Politicians speak, excuse me, lie so floridly that they seem to have forgotten that we little people say what we mean and mean what we say, as in “willing to die fighting in order to keep their rights.” They should contemplate a quote attributed to Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto after the strike on Pearl Harbor, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.”

    To rephrase that in less eloquent prose: Don’t poke the bear.
    Molon labe.

    “I honestly thought from my standpoint that the vast majority would register. If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don’t follow them, then you have a real problem.” Yes, Mr. Tony Guglielmo, that’s “a real problem.” However, I’ll tell you an even more severe, deeper problem: When the people who pass them don’t follow them; when you have a U.S. Attorney General who has a cafeteria-style mentality with regards to the laws of the land; and, when you have a POTUS who thinks he is a law unto himself. Now, THAT, is what you call “A REAL PROBLEM!”

    Well said Ms. Thoris! ” There is not a law that you can make that will give you the right to do what is wrong.”

  • Dan Ryan Galt says:

    Here in Connecticut, the legislature voted to give driver’s licenses to ILLEGALS. We give in-state tuition rates to the children of ILLEGALS. We have sanctuary cities that allow ILLEGALS to live without fear of arrest. These law breakers are allowed to roam free, often committing crimes, but I am expected to obey a law that violates my Constitutionally protected right to bear arms.

    Thanks to all who will stand by us and please go to the Connecticut Citizen’s Defense League, CCDL, and join up.

    Well lets hope they don’t try the Katrina style of confiscation, truckloads of our own young National Guard roll up on streets with weapons at the ready. Ready to kill their own citizens..!!
    The sad part is that a clash between the two would not be actually resolving the problem of the politicians that came up with this BS.

    • Jean says:

      You presume that (a) CT residents will run out of ammo, and (b) they won’t remember who sent the NG into their homes.

      I think it would go the other way:
      NG punks would open fire when ordered.
      Citizens would fire back.
      New converts would be made on the CT side – leaving NG in an encircled position.
      CT residents would either shoot the all NG, or starve them out.
      Meantime, a detachment of CT citizens will go “discuss” things with the governor and legislture. Armed citizens, rope, lamppost, corrupt politicians: Some assembly required.

      The cops WILL stand down if they know what’s good for them. Just the way these things work.

  • Dan Ryan Galt says:

    You’re very welcome Jodi. The CCDL has grown to over 11,000 members in just 5 years. That’s a lot of votes considering “Mumbles” Malloy won by only 6.500 votes in 2010.

  • GWB says:

    It is these same citizens whom you are trying to force into disarmed criminal servitude.

    Sadly, many will not require ‘forcing’.

    [My position is] going to be about 2 feet behind him, handing him ammunition.

    You do your namesake proud, Dejah. Keep strong.

    Though the Spartans are a great example, I prefer the Texican phrasing at Gonzales:
