Connecticut citizens are ignoring new gun control laws
What if the government passed yet another law targeting “assault rifles” and their owners…and everyone ignored it? That seems to be the case in Connecticut, where up to 90% of gun owners are ignoring one of the “most draconian gun-control regimes in America.”
According to a story at The Capitalism Institute:
Almost the entire state: is actively refusing to comply with Obama’s anti-gun agenda…official estimates suggest that the overwhelming majority of the citizens targeted by the latest assault on gun rights failed to comply. Indeed, analysts say it appears that most people largely ignored the new statute, which purports to ban numerous non-registered “assault” weapons and standard-capacity magazines. Now, despite resistance by the governor, state lawmakers are reportedly “scrambling” to come up with a possible amnesty plan allowing gun owners to register past the deadline.
The citizens of Connecticut seem to know something the government doesn’t: that disarming law-abiding citizens will do nothing to prevent another Newtown.
