    Connecticut Carry - Press Release - The Connecticut House of Representatives Passes G

    From: http://ctcarry.com/News/Release/c0c5...1-a3f5edb6e84e

    The Connecticut House of Representatives Passes Gun Ban

    The House of Representatives fails to represent the citizens of Connecticut

    Connecticut, April 3, 2013:

    Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013 will live in infamy as the day that Connecticut legislators usurped the legislative process to pander to their anti-gun agenda with hopes of furthering their political careers. In one, fell, unethical swoop, the Connecticut legislature made clear that they had no regard or consideration for the rights and vocal opinions of their constituents.

    Legislators spent much time during their respective sessions patting themselves on the back for making a united front against property rights, the right to self defense and the right to bear arms. They should be ashamed of themselves, if they can put aside their political goals long enough to feel the effects of what they have done to good people in Connecticut.

    In passing this legislation, the legislature has sent several clear and horrible messages:

    ∑ Adults that can serve in war but are not yet 21 cannot own the civilian, semi-automatic versions of what they would be sent to war with.
    ∑ A citizen who wishes to abide by the law will always be at a defensive disadvantage to their attacker who will not download their magazines with the state mandated 10 round limit.
    ∑ The latest defensive technology will no longer be available to citizens, only to criminals. Future generations in Connecticut will be left completely without this technology.
    ∑ Manufacturers of firearms and accessories that the state has demonized are no longer welcome in this state and the state will lose the revenue and all of the jobs associated.
    ∑ Legislators have no interest in making anyone other than criminals safer.

    Hopefully legislators in Connecticut are about to face the same fate as the Federal legislators who were voted out following the Federal AWB of 1994. The State of Connecticut has kicked a hornetís nest.

    Well, I think that the entire AWB will be tossed myself. A hornets nest indeed.

    What will happen to all the preban rifles? Are they still legal with the extra accessories after Malloy signs this bill?

    Thanks Rich - I was going to ask you for the same thing. Time to fire off some additional letters and make some calls to voice my negative response to the passage of the bill - it will probably continue to fall on deaf ears, but we all need to continue to apply pressure to stop legislation like this in whatever capacity we can. It will be interesting to see what happens come election time...

    For posterity's sake: We must not solely focus our efforts on vocalizing our disappointment/displeasure with those who voted yes on this bill; it is also important to convey our support to those which didn't.
    Minds are like parachutes. Just because you lost yours doesn't mean you can borrow mine...

    Thanks Rich,
    In the past I haven't paid much attention to state elections, but I'm going to be fully involved from now on and get some these children out of office and vote some adults in.

    I shot off a email to Ed Jutila, a democrat that voted no, telling him thanks.

    The others who voted no....they won't care about no emails...when I see them face to face I'll let them know - loudly

    I contacted a few candidates for last election and offered to walk my neighborhood .... none of them cared, they just wanted $$$.

    So I voted a straight party ticket -- all libertarians

    You can find a list of legislators and how they voted here: http://ctcarry.com/Legislative/Legislators

    There has been some discussion on our Facebook page - http://FB.com/ConnecticutCarry - of various races. One of the main ones we are concentrating on is the AG race.

    You might be able to help on that front. http://kieforag.com
