    "and just how do you know whether they were legitimately elected in a fair election?"

    Read a newspaper, or visit the Secretary of State's website. Turn off Glenn Beck for a moment and get educated.

    It's not only the elected officials in CT it's also the "Progressive Courts". The State Supreme Court mis-interputed one of the most clearly definded State Constitutions regarding the 2nd Ammendment Rights 15 years ago. Basically the court said that the State can restrict firearms ownership down to the point that we have a right to a single shot 22 or shotgun.

    Oh yep, because THAT is the source for the truth.

    Sorry, don't listen to Glenn or Rush or Brian Williams or Wolf either -but there were too many cases of illegals voting, the dead casting votes, voting machine fraud in some states, and on and on - and it will only get worse as they desperately try to keep their control - using drones to spy, unwarranted this and that

    but you cling to your beliefs....I prefer the truth

    I wasn't aware of this. I don't doubt you but would like to read the decision. You don't happen to have a citation do you?

    CT has some of the toughest gun control laws in the USA. CT also has some the weakest laws in the US when it comes to protecting the public from violent mental cases.

    Early last year the CT legislature failed to pass a bill that would have mandated treatment for mental cases that present a threat to themselves and others.

    I'm from CT and find it ironic that Connecticut is the "Constitution State":rolleyes:

    I also believe that these northeast and west coast states are in violation of the second and perhaps (in the future) fourth amendments to the constitution.

    Do you ever scratch your head and wonder how someone could say things like, "Only police need guns", or "Nobody needs a magazine that holds more then ten rounds"? There are a lot of 'cultures' within our American culture; people that are into dog trials, or ham radio enthusiasts, or whatever. People within a particular sub-culture will always toe the party line for that culture. The trick is to divide the culture, and then you disrupt the support structure. Shotgunners against handgunners against hunters against EBRs, and so on.

    Read this essay, All the Way Down the Slippery Slope. The anti-gunners only need to disrupt the gun culture for one generation, then the end is in sight. This is what has happened in CT, MA, & NY; guns are a foreign thing, gun enthusiasts are the minority, the support structure has been destroyed.

    Mainsail has made some good points, but the issue is not a simple one. As Neal Knox pointed out decades ago, firearms control is largely an urban vs. rural issue, and in those states that have them, large urban populations can dominate the subordinate rural areas by shear weight of numbers, as can be clearly seen at the moment where the principal push for gun controls is going on in NY, NJ, CT, CO, CA, IL - and so on. Telling those that live in these states that they should “vote the (expletive deleted) out of office” is not a practical option.

    The best that gun-owning residents in these states can hope for is that the federal court system will eventually overturn some of the more extreme proposals if/when they become law.

    On the national scene the picture is brighter. In 1994 after pushing through the first AWB (and an unpopular revision of the nation’s medical system) the Democrats lost control of both the House and Senate, and in the following presidential election Gore (D) lost to Bush (R) when the former failed to carry his home state of Tennessee because of the “gun vote.” History can and may repeat itself. I can easily predict that by the time the current president’s term of office is up, NICS will have made over 100-million background checks during his tenure. That’s the kind of number any politician thinking about a national office had better take note of. :uhoh:

    Wait, so people who ALREADY own magazines with over 10 rounds will have to turn them into the police?? Holy crap - I've seen movies that started out like this and they always ends bad.

    I think sometimes... "if liberals could have whatever they want with zero opposition, what would this country be?" - then I envision scenes from RoboCop or Escape from New York and get the chills.

    Get a list of the names of those that are voting for this legislation and run a candidate against them.Publish their names in an newspaper ad. It cost money but is is the only thing these idiots fear. The only way to save yourself is to make them afraid of being re-elected or actually replacing them.

    There is likely a fascinating intellectual discussion to be had about advance degrees, the worth thereof, geographical concentrations, if they ever get used, who serves in the military and why, the sociological and political implications of large population centers and their impact on surrounding areas, etc.

    Likely, but not here.

    The OP is addressing the distressful situation in CT, a state that is taking advantage of its own terrible tragedy to advance political agendas. Telling him they deserve it and then everyone attacking each other just serves the antis - please don't fall into their trap.
