Legislation to keep an eye on

Uncle Rob 04-21-2013 10:22 AM

ct.'S new law has gone way beyond, beyond. As of next year a permit shall be required to buy a long gun, and another to buy ammo. Just what us skeet shooters need, we go though a lot of shells each year.I can only say that we in CT. are having our guns taken away inch by inch.

So,does this mean you don't think the permit thing is a good idea? I admit it is inconvenient but there have been instances where more regulation seems prudent.

The fascists don't want us to have guns and will do anything to make sure the people don't have them.

The tyrants have pretty much taken away our ability to vote for real change in an election and want to guarantee that once we wake up to the realization of what they have done there is no recourse.

What needs to be done is to enforce the laws we have on the books instead of taking away more liberty. In RI we fill out a document, a background check gets run and you wait a week for a firearm, including long guns. Seems reasonable to me, now what about the people buying who aren't in compliance with the law.

One permit should cover everything, it's a complete waste of taxpayer dollars...

first comes the talk about the guns...... don't worry about them being taken away yet. However, from now on, pay for ALL of your ammunition with cash. THAT is where the problem is going to come from. And if you are really worried---CACHES

They do not make laws for bad guys.... only good many laws already ....just the other day I do believe Sunday some took off from Connecticut on bikes stopping at the whitehouse to protest large capacity clips....the days of the 6 shooter R over....U need fire power.

Fishpart: U R Right, "The fascists don't want us to have guns and will do anything to make sure the people don't have them.

read this a few years ago and I think it makes total sense.

* In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. This doesn't include the 30 million 'Uncle Joe' starved to death in the Ukraine.

* In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

* Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, leaving a populace unable to defend itself against the Gestapo and SS. Hundreds of thousands died as a result.

* China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

* Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

* Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. The total dead are said to be 2-3 million

* Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, 1-2 million 'educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

* Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million at a bare minimum.

* Gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results:

Australia-wide, homicides went up 3.2 percent

Australia-wide, assaults went up 8.6 percent

Australia-wide, armed robberies went up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns.

It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too.

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady DECREASE in armed robbery with firearms, that changed drastically upward in the first year after gun confiscation...since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late.

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind him of this history lesson.

With Guns...........We Are "Citizens".

Without Them........We Are "Subjects".

During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED.

Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard University 1919-1921 & was Naval Attaché to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor and our Army had been deprived of funding and was ill prepared to defend the country.

It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U. S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U. S. and knew that almost all households had guns.
