96% of CT Gun Owners are “Felons” Overnight

CONNECTICUT — The state officials of Connecticut have begun a fight they may not be able to handle. Recently, it has been declared law that Connecticut gun owners must register their firearms under the government’s watchful eye. Unfortunately for them, they did not predict how many gun owners would not comply.

Only roughly four percent of gun owners in the state actually registered their firearms. As the deadline to register came and went, the remaining 96% of gun owners became owners of illegal weapons literally overnight. Connecticut officials realized they couldn’t punish such a tremendous amount of people all at once, so they had no other choice but to extend the deadline, giving gun owners one last chance to register their guns before they are considered felons by the state.

A letter was signed, notarized, and released by the state, addressing all “illegal” gun owners. The letter states:

Dear Sir/Madam,
We are returning your application for assault weapon certificate and/or large
capacity magazine declaration because it was not received or postmarked prior to
January 1, 2014 as required by law.
 
As a result, you have the following options for your assault weapon per Public Act

13-3, as amended by Public Act 13-220:
1. Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable;
2. Sell the assault weapon to a licensed gun dealer;
3. Remove the assault weapon from the state; or
4. You may make arrangements to relinquish the assault weapon to a police
department or to the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.
 
You have the following options for disposal of your large capacity magazine per 
Public Act 13-3, as amended by Public Act 13-220.
1. Render the large capacity magazine permanently inoperable;
2. Sell the large capacity magazine to a licensed gun dealer;
3. Remove the large capacity magazine from the state; or
4. You may make arrangements to relinquish your large capacity magazine
in a police department or the Department of Emergency Services and Public
Protection.
 
Sincerely,
Lt. Eric Cooke
Commanding Officer
Special Licensing and Firearms Unit
 

In other words, if gun owners choose not to register their firearms to the government under an unconstitutional law, they must hand them over to the government or to someone else in a state that is gun-friendly. If neither of these actions are taken, each innocent gun owner is a felon.

What happened to the “land of the free?”

    This could be a tipping point for anyone who believes that rights are God given and not government given. The constitution guarantees rights we already have and politicians have no right to infringe upon. The people in government have forgotten who they are dealing with and its amazing one of the hotbeds of the first revolution could very well end up being a hotbed for another one. When an oppressive government over reaches themselves it may be time for the citizens of this country to tell them very plainly. We are a free people and you have no right or authority to violate our rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. 99% of the mass shooting we have seen in this country are the result of mentally ill people not getting the treatment they so desperately need. Why is that? We have a mental health system that puts gravely ill people on the street and trusts them to stay on their medications. The result is we have jails with more mental patients than criminals. So a federal judge says to ease overcrowding you must release prisoners early and put them on parole to an overworked parole system. Crime rates and burglaries skyrocket and the politicians want to take our means of self-defense away! In my home town the result was the murder of a beloved Priest, beaten to death by a mentally ill prisoner released from jail only a couple of hours earlier. I totally support the gun owners in Connecticut and I would not comply either.

    If you think that in Russia is after us think again. They know that we are a paper tiger. They would like the people of this country to stop all of this crap that the government has been pulling on the world. Wake-up people we owe so much to Russia and china that we will never be able to pay them back thanks to our Gov. officials that have sold us down the river for lots and lots of money while they take more and more of our rights. DON’T GIVE UP YOUR GUNS OR YOUR RIGHTS!!!!! ( think about all the legislation that has torn this country’s heart out by letting it happen again and again.)

      A word about gun laws. The Constitution is the superior law of the land. Any laws made contrary to the Constitution are not laws, they are useless words from uneducated evil people. I do not need a damned pistol permit in NY. The American Constitution IS my permit! Molon Labe!

    We the poeple regulate gov. not the other way around!! Wake up America. and vote as such…..

    • tiger says:

      When will Americans get wise and get out of the “party system “. It does not matter what party they are in, they are all in the same boat, they stand for the same thing. They do one thing well, they decieve people ! They say what they know that you what to hear Do you really think that your vote in the General Election counts ? Locally it does and maybe even the congresional race. Good men and women until they get to Washoington, then if they don’t play ball they don’t last. But surely not for the Presidency, YOUR VOTE DON”T MEAN A THING ! Get those bums out now by recall ! Waiting for the electing will be too late. Put the fire out now !

      Wake up, know your ENEMY !!

      a Vietnam Vet that still has a lot of fight in him, Hoorah !

      They may get the guns from some of the people but I think that the barrels will be very hot to the touch when they pull them from their cold hands.

    The second amendment is the last step of the political enemies of our free nation. They think this is the last thing they need to do to eliminate the document from the American people. They have butchered the rest of it, now the Second amendment is their final test. Those of you who think 3% of us are going to sit on our hands, well you are as misinformed as those who plan to subvert this great document. Then we will use those FEMA camps they built for us to keep the jack booted enemies of freedom working polishing their shiny boots with their shiny posteriors. After we are done in socialist state of NY we will be there to help you if you want us Connecticut. Next Washington. Molon Labe brothers, Molon Labe!!

    idiotic politicians file and pass feel good legislation all the time that is enacted into law and never prosecuted until the time is ripe. this is one of those sleeper laws that is fishing. first off they shouldn’t know who has one. if they do thats a violation of federal regul;ations of there not being a list(if you believe that one). secondly citizen john has said it best . seems like a cold dead hands proposition coming up.

  7. Clayford says:

    This is complete nonsense! The Second Amendment provides for the individual right to keep and bear arms. I applaud the people of Connecticut for their resistance to this blatently unconstitutional law.

  8. tiger says:

    Go F… yourself !

  9. David says:

    The State of CT can make all the childish laws it wants, but my right to keep and bear arms is still there. Whether I choose to keep and bear any arms is nobody’s business, the State of CT included. It does seem smart, however, to keep some arms in my house so I can bear them against the State of CT if and when it comes to my house to see whether I have chosen to keep any arms.

    In other words, the State of CT can go fly a kite.
