The gun rush is on in Connecticut

Written By: Bob - Apr• 03•13

Many citizens of Connecticut have been laying in arms, ammunition and magazines since right after the Sandy Hook shooting, already predicting the gutless, emotional lemming-like responses of their legislators. They’re now snatching up what is left on store shelves before these cowards violate their oaths of office and pass laws that are a direct assault on the Constitution:

Today, Connecticut lawmakers plan to vote on possible new gun control laws that could be some of the toughest in the country.

This was a big concern for gun owners, and thousands of them rushed to gun stores to stock up on guns and ammunition that could soon be illegal.

“They’re insane, I’ve never seen them so busy before,” said Shari Reilly.

She bought high-capacity magazines at three different stores, from Norwalk to Newington, and she was irate over the possible changes

I’ll repeat here what I wrote in the comments of the article.

General Gage sent a column of more than 600 Regulars and Royal Marines into the Massachusetts countryside on April 19, 1775. That attempt at gun control sparked an eight-year long war that birthed a new nation, and sent the tyrants and their followers packing back to England or Canada.One can hope that true Americans respond to this latest attempt at gun confiscation respond with morally justified force, with the tyrants attempting it shot down in their tracks or sent fleeing overseas.

“Shall not be infringed” is not a suggestion, but the codification of a God-given right that may not be removed by man without violating God’s law as well.

Anyone attempting to disarm you intends to enslave you; anyone attempting to enslave you will just as callously kill you. 262 million died at the hands of their own government in the 20th Century, in what has now been termed “democide.” The one thing they all had in common was that the governments disarmed their citizens first.

If you want peace, prepare for war.

    I have a feeling their plan is to ban the sale and then manufacture of arms. They’ll wait another generation or two before confiscating.

    They’re in it for the long game.

    They’re going to run out of time though, methinks.

    Yes.

    Hammer away at them by splashing Democide in their faces.

    Force them to confront murder by government and the preceding necessity of civilian disarmament…relentlessly.

    Question authority…always.

    I’m very happy the people of CT are buying guns and ammo… what I’d like to know is where they’re getting the stuff. The dealers here (and on line) have next to nothing and say they can’t even order it. A friend of mine wanted to buy an XD 9mm locally, and she was told it couldn’t be ordered, and he had no idea when he could do so…

    How does CT rate? :( Or what are they buying? Single shot shotguns and birdload?

    The Maryland House will vote today on their own gun ban bill (SB281). My delegates inform me that the bill is being ramrodded through without any chance of positive amendments. I’m glad that I spent the last few years preparing. I’m sorry for those who did not. “Vote with your feet”, those who can.

    “When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually…” George Mason

    This fight is about liberty and if liberty is in our hearts we will not, we cannot be broken.

    One day soon those who love liberty will have to decide as to how far they will go to defend their liberty and take the needed steps to insure our liberty. There will be no turning back.

    That day keeps getting closer methinks.

    Death before slavery!

    Bloomberg should have used his money and bought up all the mags in the stores and had a huge barnfire rally as he burned them. Now that would have made the news all across the country! Might have been hot enough to drink a 32 oz soda safely across state lines while watching. But no popcorn….too much salt.

    I have a question are any of these unconstitutional laws going to be challenged in the courts or are people just bending over and spreading wide?
