Posted on 04/03/2013 1:26:09 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Gun stores all over Connecticut were packed Tuesday, one day before lawmakers were expected to vote on a sweeping package of laws that would ban military-style assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Theyre insane. Ive never seen them so busy before, shopper Shari Reilly, who bought up several high-capacity magazines, told NBC Connecticut.
Gov. Dannel P. Molloy, a Democrat, has said he will sign what could be the toughest law passed anywhere in the country" -- if it gets through the legislature. Connecticut would become the latest of a handful of states following Colorado and New York to enact strict new gun-control legislation after the mass shootings in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater and Newtown, Conn., shool. President Obama was scheduled to speak in Colorado on Wednesday to push new federal laws.
Gun manufacturers, ammunition makers and gun store owners in Connecticut have said their businesses will be threatened if a stringent new gun control bill becomes law.
I feel like we have one foot being pushed out the door, Mark Malkowski, the owner of AR-15 manufacturer Stag Arms, told NBC Connecticut. He said his company has received nearly two dozen incentive-laden offers to move out of the state.
Theyre really good offers, Malkowski said. They are offering tax abatements, theyre offering to build you a factory.

Watch as law abiding citizens become felons at the stroke of a pen?
Or patriots in the next civil war.
Are Connecticut Democrats taking notice?
I wonder what inanimate object CT will blame when the Sandy Hook survivors get blown to pieces by an Islamist with a backpack bomb? It’s not like there will be anyone with a gun to take him out before the button is pressed.
If a foreign force wanted to terrify idiot America into submission that would be the way to do it.
Retard America will outlaw backpacks and turn any child wearing one into a felon. I wish this was just a joke but you know it may happen...
Connecticut citizens will not Stamford this crap.
They won’t until they are facing down the barrel of a gun.
Tyrants never see the writings on the wall until they are overthrown.
Guess the gun owners are going to have to find a new haven.
“Guess the gun owners are going to have to find a new haven.”
I’m kind of hoping that they mass on the capitol and make their “legislators” literally run to find a safe haven.
Once again, Obama proves he is the firearms salesman of the millenium.
Nothing puts more guns on the streets than gun control legislation!

There may come a time in the very near future when all the guns are made in Texas. Then the government will come after Texas and maybe the politicians in Austin will see secession is the only answer.
why they still live up there after how the north east has gone is beyond me, still those tax payers are giving more tax money for the lunatic left to spend and for a fake vet to spend their money on pure liberal crap
how much money will this cost CT?
CT can’t survive by being the place effete NYC dwellers go at night.
CT is the bedroom state for NYC.
People go to NY to work and come back to CT to sleep.
Everything the RAT party tries to do has the opposite effect of what was intended. Perhaps if they tried writing a law to encourage gun ownership...
and we will be told by liberal idiots, who make most of their decisions based on THEIR genitals, that men buy because of inadequate penises, and women because obviously, then, of penis envy.
