A journalist in Connecticut reports that the highly restrictive and punitive gun control laws the state passed last year carry an ominous threat for citizens.
Those who missed the deadline to register their "assault weapons" and high capacity magazines, which have been outlawed, will be treated as criminals although they may have attempted to obey the law but just missed the deadline.
Ed Jacovino of The Journal Inquirer further stated that Michael P. Lawler, a top aide to Gov. Dannel Malloy, contends that the state will punish those who missed the registration deadline whether they intended to or not.
According to Jacovino,
And while the state won’t immediately prosecute those who missed the deadline, it isn’t ignoring that information, either.
The rifle and magazine declarations will be included in information given to police responding to a certain address. “This would be a factor in deciding how to respond to different situations,” Lawlor says.
Read that statement closely. Lawlor is saying that if a citizen calls the police to report a crime in progress, officers will be able to see whether or not the person reporting the crime has registered their assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and will approach the emergency call accordingly.
Mike Vanderboegh, who wrote and posted an open letter to every member of the Connecticut legislature about this issue, was quick to catch Lawlor's quip and responded with the following:
In other words, "we'll send a Connecticut state police SWAT team to your door if you are reporting a home invasion -- not to arrest the perpetrator attacking you and your family but to arrest and, if necessary, kill you."
Lawlor, thus, is calling for bloodshed against those who disobey the new gun laws in Connecticut at the hands of law enforcement officers.
The bottom line is that Vanderboegh has outed the hidden mindset and true intent of the anti-gun bigots in states such as Connecticut. They wish to kill. They wish to shed blood. The irony of such a thing should not be minimized, given that they have always claimed that their intent is to prevent bloodshed and killing.
