The CONN legislature is now considering a bill to ban all assult rifle look-alikes. That means no more AR's of any make or configuration. No more Colt sporters, no more Bushmasters, no more Oly's, Armalites, or DPMS. No more SKS, nor AK's. Is your state next!

Well, actually it is 4 ways in this order: 1) Soap Box- You can yell all you want but ultimately the mass media and hollywood will drown out your message. 2) Ballot Box- This hasn't worked so well, too many broken promises and the elected continue to pass unconstitutional laws. 3) Jury Box- No much good here anymore either. Horichi walks, yet the surviving Davidians remain in jail. Judges refuse to inform juries of their right to jury nullification. 4) Cartridge Box- The final resort when the first 3 no longer work. This is why the socialists want to take this option away and have a monopoly on coercive force.

To those that say "I will disobey," this is the moment where you decide to choose liberty over slavery; you have chosen to take a chance and remain free. To those that say "I do not want to become a criminal," this is the moment where fear and cowardice compels you to choose slavery over any possible conflict. You can take a chance, possibly go to jail, and POSSIBLY lose everything. On the other hand, you can play it safe, but you will CERTAINLY lose everything in the process, piece by piece. To those that would register: Register your rifle and surrender your rights, it's all going to be okay. You can still keep your rifle, go to the range, shoot bottles and cans and have a good old time. But keep in mind that registration is just the tip of the iceberg. Your children will not bear these arms. You only get one life, take a chance and remain free. America would not exist as it is today if it were not for rebellion. radioman CA, USA

Taken from the link, "We have a ban on these military-style weapons, and there is good reason for it. People are safer with this ban in place." ROTFLMAO!!! I would like to see one of these buttheads go and explain to the surivors of those who were gunned down in that Illinois plant outside Chicago or in that Massachusetts internet office that they were somehow safer from any type of assualt weapon ban. I truly wonder how anyone can be so f#cking stupid! Is Washington D.C. any safer from their ban on handguns, DUH!

The Ct. bill looks like a combination of the Finstein Bill in the US Senate and the RI Bill. If you can't get what you want in the US Congress you go to each State Legislature and get it there.

I was engaged in a debate last night with the president of the NW CT sportsman's council. He/they are prepared to endorse a form of registration instead of a ban, that would be retroactive back to guns banned with the first ban. This scares me. When a group that has a membership of 6,000, in a sparsely populated area like the NW corner wants to fold like a wet noodle, we're in trouble. I am urging this guy to put our reps' feet to the fire. If they want to keep their seat, we should let them know that they had better do anything short of dousing themselves with gasoline and burning themselves on the house floor, to keep this bill from going anywhere. 6000 votes in these state rep elections can easily be the difference between returning for another term, and going home. We have to use our power! I'm going to point out a little known fact. The "turn in your neighbor" bill may never have passed if not for the Coaliton of CT Sportsman's nod of approval. These sportsmans' groups are concerned with one thing and one thing only. They want to keep their bolt action 30.06s. If you're a member, do what I did. I told the president that I will not renew my membership in that organization, and in the two gun clubs that I belong to, and which also participate in the alliance, if they endorse anything but a big fat "NO WAY!" vote. It doesn't hurt that I'm moving in August to a 25 acre parcel where I can have my own range. :) Anyone who leaves a club in protest over their endorsement of a AW Ban Lite, is welcome to come and use mine when I get it set up. Edited because I can't spell when I'm pissed off. :)

critter, could you please elaborate on the "turn in your neighbor bill"? The sound of that makes my blood run cold.
Link Posted: 3/13/2001 3:17:56 PM EDT
Hey Criitter, when you get those 25 acres would you be willing to host a CT AR15.com shoot? fullclip: I'm not sure exactly sure what the "turn in you neighbor bill" states, but it's something like if your neighbors feel threatened by your guns (not sure what has to be done on your part to threaten), they can call the police, place a complaint about your guns, and they get confiscated. In other words, an AD or test shot in the back yard could be the end of your gun collection. To the best of my knowledge it has been used twice since implemented, once in Greenwich, and once up around New Britain I think.

slt, I don't see why we couldn't get something going over the summer. I'd probably want to let the local LEO know what we were doing. When they hear rapid fire from a few dozen guns blazing, we might end up with a SWAT team coming for us. :) fullclip, I could write a book on all that's wrong with the "TIYNB" but to keep it short, if you have a neighbor, ex-wife, or anyone for that matter, that claims you may be a danger to yourself or others, the cops are coming and they are taking your firearms. They say you get a hearing within two weeks, but having been through CT's judicial system once, for my divorce, it's a non hearing kinda hearing. They'll keep you coming back and coming back, until you give in somehow, to whatever their demands are going to be. It's a farce, designed to make lawyers rich, you poor, and turn your guns into scrap metal.

Stubbs, I live in Illinois and there is no assault weapon ban (like Kalifornia, et al). The only ban we have is the federal ban. Chicago, however, does have a complete ban on AR's and military style rifles. The mere possession of such weapons within the Chicago city limits is illegal.

Anybody going to the public hearing on the 20th? Don't roll over and play dead yet! This is some scary shit. '93 passed. How can '01 not? This sucks.
Link Posted: 3/16/2001 8:31:38 AM EDT
What exactly are you looking at in Conn. guys? The way I read it, it said banned, not the sale of is banned, just banned. Are the people that possessed a AR 15 type firearm before the passing (if passed) going to immediately become criminals? I saw nothing that said anything about registering said weapons. If so then maybe the Shit has hit the fan and the time for some long hard thought is upon you.
Link Posted: 3/16/2001 8:35:30 AM EDT
I read the text of the bill (it is quite lengthy) and I believe there is a provision for the registration of existing AWs. Big deal. Those dumbfuks.
Link Posted: 3/16/2001 8:44:21 AM EDT
Stubbs - no long arms are currently 'banned' in Mass., only handguns. You do however, need to have the correct license in order to possess 'high-capacity' long arms (You need a license to posess _any_ long arm in this state).
Link Posted: 3/16/2001 10:30:43 AM EDT
Come on all you CT guys - hook up with Wobblin and go to the hearing. I left CT 5 years ago, cuz I saw this coming. Also, the winters suck, the taxes are too high, jobs were scarce, and I was tired of the political crap generally. DON'T roll over on this one - make a stand. it ain't law yet. Speak up and be heard.

Do yourself a favor and email this guy. His address is on the webpage of the news release. I dont even live in Conn but I emailed anyhow. Keep it civil and actually sign with your real name. Overwhelm these people with emails and calls and maybe they'll see the public does not support their views of what is safety. Point out that they cannot name one single incident where the .50 "sniper" rifles have been used in a crime. Make intelligent points and drive it home.

The Public Safety public hearing is on Tuesday, March 20th, at 11:00 am. Sign-up for speaking order begins at 9:00 am. If I can make it, I will be there earlier than that. If you speak, you must have 65 copies of your testimony ready at sign-up.

Well Surprise Surprise... Senator Alvin W. Penn = NAACP = Negros Allied with the American Communist Party. He'll keep "guns out of the hands of potentially dangerous individuals," but as usual leave the dangerous individual at large because removing them would eat into his voting block. I bet there are more guns up here in the N.W. corner than in Bridgeport, but no murders, muggings, or gangs. So how is it that the number of guns continues to be cited as the number one cause of crime? This is the guy who was allowed to write up the law against racial profiling after he was stopped questioned by police for being black. Good for him. But then he turns around and says that it's OK for the legislature to suspect all gun owners of being criminals and that all our guns should be registered.
Link Posted: 3/17/2001 8:59:25 AM EDT
That's a very valid point Garden Weasel. Same deal for me in Fairfield County. Lots of guns, and very little crime. I'm willing to bet there are some big campaign contributors down here that will object strongly. Hopefully they will be heard if others aren't.
