Laws are more than just symbolic gestures. Connecticut's General Assembly must come to grips with this truth before its recent effort to “save lives” ends up destroying them.
State law enforcement officials are now in the difficult position of dealing with one of the most widely flouted laws since the end of the 55 miles-per-hour speed limit and Prohibition. If it’s really serious, the state will have to find space to imprison 300,000 residents for the next five years.
The first article of the Connecticut Constitution couldn’t be more clear. “Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state,” it says.
Busybodies at the Capitol in Hartford decided that “every” doesn’t really mean every, and it banned the semi-automatic rifles that would be most useful in defense of the state. As of Jan. 1, owners of arms that have a menacing appearance had to submit registration paperwork to the state.

Gun Owners Revolt
***Don't believe them when they say they don't want to take your guns away from you. Of course they do. They start with registration, that's how they know who has what. Every mass-murdering dictator who has ever lived disarmed his citizens first. Don't ever believe this has anything to do with "safety." It has to do with control. Thank God Connecticut gun owners aren't having any of it. We all need to follow suit if this tyranny comes to our states.
