    Gun Confiscation Letters Sent Out in Connecticut!

    Breaking News: Gun Confiscation Letters Sent Out in Connecticut!

    Posted on February 25th, 2014 by Conservative Daily

    "Since last year’s tragic Sandy Hook shooting, Connecticut lawmakers have “led” the nation in violating their citizens’ second amendment rights!

    In Connecticut, the state legislature passed a bill banning so-called “high capacity” magazines (anything above 10 rounds) and semi-automatic rifles with certain prohibited cosmetic attachments.

    Anyone who owned a magazine or rifle before the law was passed was grandfathered in, but they were also forced to register these “dangerous weapons” with the state before January 1, 2014. Well, the registration deadline came and went and the registration numbers are quite interesting…

    Just like in neighboring New York, gun owners in Connecticut are refusing to register their firearms with the state. These law-abiding citizens became felons overnight when the Connecticut legislature passed a law that arbitrarily outlawed their previously legal firearms. A total of 47,916 people registered their firearms and another 40,000 people registered their “high capacity” magazines with the State of Connecticut by the January 1st deadline. However, that could represent as little as 4% of the total number of “assault weapons” and prohibited magazines owned in the state.

    In a massive show of civil disobedience, gun owners have refused to comply with the mandated registration and, as a result, Connecticut’s unjust law has created upwards of 100,000 felons who have otherwise committed no crime!

    Now, however, the State is going after these gun owners and has begun sending out gun confiscation letters!

    Tell Congress that the RIGHT to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed!

    You see, many gun owners tried to send in their registration forms by the deadline but did not account for the fact that the post office would be closed for New Year’s. This led to a number of registration forms arriving after the deadline. Rather than introduce new legislation to extend the registration window, Governor Dannel Malloy unilaterally decided to extend the deadline for three days. That means that all registration forms received by January 4th would still be accepted.

    Well, a few hundred applications still arrived after this second arbitrary deadline and the State of Connecticut has decided to go after these law-abiding gun owners!

    As we speak, a little over two-hundred confiscation notices are en route to Connecticut citizens who own semi-automatic rifles and prohibited magazines. Rather than treat the late registration forms as applications, the state is treating them like notarized admissions of guilt!"

    Ok so let me get this straight... that article quoted the letter. Nothing in the letter said anything about confiscation. It listed the 4 options for the owner. Destroy , sell, etc..

    Then the article says "they won't trust them so they will go door to door".

    So these aren't "confiscation" letters. Not remotely. They are a notice that they are supposed to get rid of it. IF they don't and are caught some other way... then they will be charged accordingly since they were notified.

    Still time to repeal the law or get it struck down.

    Oh boy ... you're stepping into it now ....

    They are confiscation letters (IF they are shown to exist) IMO ... removing the items from your possession.

    Now, if they are smart, they'll just remove the gas tube, make a homemade lower, and send the banned-by-name lower somewhere else or sell it. Not hard to get around the AW bill.

    David can you copy and paste or cite a full copy if the letter?

    I'm only going off that article and the 4 things they listed. The writer of the article even said (after declaring then confiscation letters) that he has non idea what will happen now or if the cops will attempt to knock and talk.

    Your a bit more versed in the CT stuff so any help understanding and cutting through the BS is much appreciated.

    A simple form letter ... how sweet.

    And they forgot 1 option: to modify the "offending" device to be outside the scope of the act.

    Confiscation neither confirmed or denied.

    Only the requirements of the law are listed. Logically, if the now known AW owner does not respond with verification of compliance with the law, what will the cops do? Nothing? Cuz the letter does not state what they will do?.....mmm'k.

    I would disagree ... if one does nothing with the gun (sell it or move it) then one needs to:
    a) destroy it
    b) turn it over

    These two actions are the taking of the gun; even if they do not come over to the house in person.

    Confiscation need not be in person where the person comes physically and takes property. Ask any guy who went through a divorce.

    Uh, that made absolutely no sense. Read my post one more time please. The answer is in there.

    Hint.....confiscation is implied.....

    This is speculation and assumption no more no less.

    True, if there is no penalty for not complying with the law. The answer remains in my posts.

    What I didn't see in the letter was any mandate that you submit proof of said destruction, selling , etc.

    So if a PD wants to get a warrant they literally have to go to the magistrate/ judge and say I want a warrant because they HAD these guns at some time. The magistrate will ask... "what makes you think they STILL have it?".. .. what's their answer going to be? Uummmm

    At least if the letter said "submit proof by such and such date" they could TRY and say that by them not submitting said proof that they still currently have it.

    This letter and the law seems to take the word of the citizen. Its one MORE charge to hit someone with if they are caught with said rifle at some other incident. For example.. a domestic. They show up , wife says you have rifle not registered. They somehow see said rifle, not registered, then you go to jail.

    Almost like a secondary offense.

    It would appear some preparations have been made by people in charge of carrying out the desires of the governed to enforce rather than negotiate the new forced disposal of commonly used firearms.



    Some public service fliers could be put up to help gain compliance....

    Liberty is so strongly a part of human nature that it can be treated as a no-lose argument position.

    From the cop’s perspective, the expression “law-abiding citizen” is a functional synonym for “Properly obedient slave".

    It's noted you bring nothing to the conversation other than "speculation and assumption"....that which you attempt to discredit others for using.

    We have no idea right now what or how "compliance" will be "forced" upon the citizens.








    We have some idea of what they have at their disposal to use.

    I'm picking (or will try to pick up records) that I requested in December ~ so it ain't fast - I have a promptness complaint filed regarding the lack of promptness. That might be heard, and if so, I would guess in NOV or DEC of this year.

    Do you sense the irony in commenting about my "speculation and assumptions" comment , and then your very next line says " we have no idea right now how "compliance" will be " forced" upon the citizens."

    Makes sense..

    You can note whatever you want at their disposal. To make the claim they will use it in any way, without any sort of evidence is..... ready..... speculation and assumption.

    I still love you even if you don't want to be my brother.

    What Connecticut has assembled to use is no speculation. Everything you've offered is.
