Conn. lawmakers unveil bipartisan gun control plan
MyWay News (AP) ^ | April 2, 2013 | Susan Haigh

Posted on 04/02/2013 5:23:22 AM PDT by Zakeet

With an announcement of sweeping proposals to curb gun violence, Connecticut lawmakers said they are hoping to send a message to Congress and other state legislators across the country: A bipartisan agreement on gun control is possible.

Legislative leaders on Monday revealed proposals spurred by the Dec. 14 Newtown school shooting following weeks of bipartisan, closed-door negotiations. A vote is expected Wednesday in the General Assembly, where Democrats control both chambers, making passage all but assured.

And the rapists and robbers and home invaders are celebrating. Yes, the message has gone out to the rest of the country alright. It reads, “ stay the f@rk out of Connecticut, and don’t vote Democrat or something just as moronic will happen in your state.”

Politicians dancing on the graves of children............

Nothing they are proposing would have stopped the massacre at Newtown.

You can’t legislate away mentally deranged people. They will always be among us.

That’s a big reason to stay alert, stay armed.

It can’t be “bipartisan” without a party being partisan.

If the GOP were pro-2nd, then they wouldn’t compromise on their values.

Catch-22

So, what's it gonna be, Colt?
We love you. We love your guns.
Your home state now says it is against the law for us to buy most of your products.
In fact, we will now need their permission to buy ammo the ones they allow us to keep.
The boot on our necks is getting heavier.
What is your response?

I certainly expect so. I won’t do business with them if they accept doing business in that state.

This isn’t your free country of the past. We are so inundated by evil, everyone must make a stand. They are either with us, or they are with evil.

(An “ammunition eligibility certificate” required to buy ammo)

This is the most awful part of the law, and just the start. Now it’s the government that decides to give you rights. You don’t start with any! The way the Constitution was written is that the citizen retains all rights except for those that the citizen makes the government eligible to.

So now when you buy amo for say a 9MM and you havent registered a 9MM they will look at the data base and see you havent registered a 9 so why you buyen AMO.
They will then get a lib judge to issue a search warrent to look for that 9.

The9MM is just an example,.scenarios abound

A little to the south of Connecticut in the People's Republic of New Jersey, we've been required to have a "Firearms Purchaser ID" to buy ammo since 2008. (Our gangsters being too dumb to drive across the bridge from Camden and Trenton to legally purchase ammo at a WalMart in Pennsylvania?) And we've had magazine capacity restricted to 15 rounds here since 1991. I would be happy to register 30 round magazines with the State of NJ, if I could only buy them!

If all these laws had been in place in Connecticut the week before the Sandy Hood massacre, would they have stopped Adam Lanza?

If anyone is wondering why all the jobs and people with marketable skills are moving away from the big blue states, the thinking that brought Connecticut to this is a prime example.

But will these new laws ABSOLUTELY PREVENT a Newtown from happening in the future? If they cannot answer YES, then it is all useless legislation.

Are the legislators willing to make themselves PERSONALLY LIABLE if their new gun law fails to prevent such killings in the future?

“Are the legislators willing to make themselves PERSONALLY LIABLE if their new gun law fails to prevent such killings in the future?”

Nope. The opposite is at work. Incrementalism. When these laws fail to prevent the next “Newtown”, they will get to work on even more restrictive laws, claiming the previous law “didn’t go far enough.” Like they did with Obamacare, liberals take baby steps towards their ultimate goal of full socialism, and their horizon is multi-generational. They create restrictive laws that are built to fail, with failure further justification for increased restrictions. Patient calculation is one of their greatest strengths. We’re up against pure evil.
