To Officials of the State of Connecticut: Either Enforce or Repeal 2013 Anti-gun Laws.
It’s time for the State to enforce the tyranny they passed or repeal it entirely. 

Rocky Hill CT, March 3, 2014: 
A recent media tidal wave based on false reports and bad journalism has proven a few things about the 2013 Gun Ban:  people from Connecticut and around the nation are tired of being threatened; are ready to make a stand; and the State of Connecticut does not have the stomach to enforce the edicts and laws with which they threaten gun owners.
For years, Undersecretary Michael Lawlor, the upper levels of the State Police, and Governor Dannel Malloy have sought to disarm those whom they fear. The laws they passed show that they fear constitutionally and lawfully armed citizens. Despite thousands of gun owners showing up at each legislative session expecting to be heard by their ‘representatives’, government officials seized upon public panic related to the Newtown Massacre, as a means to exert legislative and executive fiats intent upon disarming gun owners who have harmed no one. The Connecticut Executive and Legislative branches showed their cowardice when they installed metal detectors and armed guards at the entrances to the Legislative Office Building (LOB) only for firearms-related hearings.
Gun hating officials now have their laws on the books in Connecticut. They dreamed up those laws, in their tyrannical dystopias, but it was NOT the majority of the public that supported such laws. Despite all the severe legal language that the government passed, there is still no open discussion of enforcing those tyrannical laws, as they stand. Throughout the Legislature and the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP), there is only talk of “amnesty” and possibly boiling the frog at a slower rate.
It comes as no surprise that the talks of relaxing enforcement expectations go along with legislators trying to get past their re-election deadlines. If the anti-gun laws they passed are so good for everyone in this state, then why are elected officials requesting increased security, both at the LOB and at their private homes? The anti-gun legislators and officials are scared to implement their tyranny because they know that they did not have any sort of ‘consent of the governed’. Those officials violated their oaths of office, as the Executive and Legislative branches of our Connecticut government overstepped their moral and constitutional responsibilities by passing those laws: they acted and voted contrary to our Rights and against our Constitution.
Now, State officials look down the barrel of the laws that they created, and it is very probably that they now tremble as they rethink the extremity of their folly. Connecticut Carry calls on every State official, every Senator, and every Representative, to make the singular decision: Either enforce the laws as they are written and let us fight it out in court, or else repeal the 2013 Gun Ban in its entirety.
As many media sources have pointed out, there is very little compliance with the new edicts, and there is absolutely no way for the State to know who is obeying the law or not. State officials have made their bluff, and Undersecretary Lawlor has made his position clear, that the State will enforce the laws. We say: Bring it on. The officials of the State of Connecticut have threatened its citizens by fiat. They have roared on paper, but they have violated Principle. Now it’s time for the State to man-up: either enforce its edicts or else stand-down and return to the former laws that did not so violently threaten the citizens of this state.
There is nothing that will so completely destroy faith in those edicts faster than the State-provoked chaos and violence that will be required to enforce the 2013 anti-gun laws. Connecticut residents should not have to live in perpetual fear of “the jack boot” coming down on them. Unenforced, frequently repeated threats fall on deaf ears. By passing laws that they cannot or choose not to enforce, State officials tell the public that this State is ignorant, immoral, blind, and impotent in its legal and decision making processes. The passage of such foolishly conceived, insufferable laws is an affront to every law-abiding citizen. Every official who supports such legal foolishness mocks our State and the Constitution they swore to uphold.
If the state does not have the stomach to enforce these laws, then the legislature has until May 7th, 2014 to completely repeal these immoral edicts and let the residents of Connecticut return to their rightfully owned property and former exercise of constitutional rights and practices without any threat of State violence.
“From Governor Malloy, to Undersecretary Lawlor to DESPP, Commissioner Schriro, and Lieutenant Cooke of the firearms unit, and including Lt. Paul Vance, the state needs to shit, or get off the pot. The fact is, the state does not have the balls to enforce these laws. The laws would not survive the public outcry and resistance that would occur.” – Connecticut Carry Director Ed Peruta.
If officials of the State of Connecticut opt to get ‘froggy’ (jumping on citizens) and start to enforce the new laws (as officials have claimed a desire to do), Connecticut Carry stands ready to do whatever it takes and whatever it can do to represent and defend anyone impacted by the State’s violence.
“As citizens of Connecticut, we have a right to bear arms. With that right comes responsibility. The responsibility to stand in defense of ourselves and our fellow citizens is paramount.” – Connecticut Carry President Rich Burgess

  1. CT LEOs planning on going on seizure raids: make sure your life insurance is paid up. Remember Lexington and Concord!

  2. Hold fast Connecticut! Stand on your Constitutional responsibilities. LEOs at all levels everywhere have got to understand that “We, the people” will only be pushed so far by such tyrannical dictates. The battles at Lexington and Concord were started by of all things, a gun grab by the British army on the colonists in those towns on April 19, 1775. The rest is history. This occurred only a few miles north of Connecticut and it looks like it may happen again if the powers that be do not come to their senses and repeal these unconstitutional edicts.

    Sandy Hook would not have happened if the administrators in the school had been armed when Adam Lanza came through the door. Where was Lt. Paul Vance and his soon to be gun grabbing cohorts when that happened? Here in Colorado the democratic controlled legislature has shot down for two years running arming teachers in the schools. I suppose they find it more morally acceptable to have a roomful of dead six year olds as opposed to an armed teacher or school administrator standing over the dead bullet riddled body of an Adam Lanza stopped in his tracks. So, the state's answer is to round up the guns that the state has deemed “illegal”. Had FORMER as in recalled and/or resigned Colorado state senators Morse, Giron and Hudak had their way, the people of Colorado would probably be facing the kind of mindless actions from our state lawmakers. To their credit, our Colorado sheriffs have vowed to not support any unconstitutional fiat from state or federal lawmakers.

    I do not envy any LEO going out into the cities and towns of Connecticut to carry out these illegal gun grabbing orders…..and please, do not use the excuse of “Just doing my job”. The Nazis were “just doing their job” as they gassed and murdered millions of innocent people in Europe during WW2. The Nuremburg defense did not work then and it will not work now.

    To my fellow patriots in Connecticut I say this….Stand your ground. Stand and fight this tyranny. If LEOs from any level of law enforcement choose to go on an unconstitutional gun grab, you and we have a sacred duty to resist because once THEY cross the line, we have nothing else to lose and everything to gain. What goes around, comes around.

    To the lawmakers of Connecticut I say this….Molon Labe or repeal! The choice is yours to make. Repeal will be your most prudent act.

    To the LEOs in Connecticut I say this……None of you should be held accountable for disobeying any unconstitutional orders. So, with that said, stand down and uphold your oaths to the Constitution and never mind any fiat or edict to the contrary. For those of you that choose to follow bad laws because your pensions and livelihoods may be at risk…..Kiss your spouse goodbye….Hug your children one last time….Pat your dog on the head one last time…..You will not be going home if you cross the line that separates Liberty from tyranny. Your fellow citizens of Connecticut that believe in the Second Amendment will make it so.
