The idiot fucking leftards that run the state of CT have yet again managed to fuck over those of us that are law abiding, while doing nothing of any significance. And of course, they did it in secret, because they knew that if people found out how these fuckers where again shitting all over the 2nd amendment, they would not have been able to pull it off. From the article:
HARTFORD — After nearly a month of closed-door meetings, legislative leaders have reached bipartisan agreement on new gun control proposals that they intend to present to rank and file members Monday afternoon.
“The leaders have had productive conversations through the end of the week,” said Adam Joseph, spokesman for Senate Democrats. “The leaders are going to give all four caucuses an update of where negotiations stand … our hope is to have a final vote in the immediate future.”
We kept it from you, for your own good – and kind of like we had to do to Obamacare, where we told you it had to pass for you to find out what was in it – because you serfs need to let Leviathan run things. Fuck, I hate the evil progressives and their authoritarian shit. Look, the only reason for the secrecy is that they wanted to prevent people from finding out what they were up to or debating the issues – the real ones, not the usual platitudes from the anti-gun left – until it was too late. And remember that bipartisan literally means you do what democrats want. Besides, a conservative in CT is just someone that would have been a democrat anywhere else 30 years ago. Real conservatives or libertarians are such a minority that we statistically don’t count. Anyway, some details:
Details of the bill were closely guarded.
Legislators have been pushing for expanded background checks, a broader ban on assault weapons and a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines.
A ban on magazines containing more than 10 rounds has been a thorn in the negotiations.
“The magazines have been a sticking point,” Sen. Beth Bye said. The West Hartford Democrat, who stressed that she has not seen the proposed legislation, favors tougher gun laws.
“I feel strongly that if we grandfather the magazines with no end date it is as good as not banning them,” Bye said.
Lawmakers have been called into session on Wednesday, said Pat O’Neil, spokesman for the House Republican caucus. “There is a session scheduled for Wednesday and the idea is that this would be coming up,” he said.
Andrew Doba, a spokesman for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a proponent of stricter gun laws, declined to comment on the specifics of the proposal. “We will review the language once we receive a final version from the legislature,” he said.
Gun policy has been at the top of the legislature’s agenda since the Dec. 14 shootings in Newtown. Police said Adam Lanza was carrying three weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition when he shot his way into Sandy Hook Elementary shortly after 9:30 a.m. He killed 20 first-graders and six women before killing himself.
Lawmakers have held several hearings on gun proposals, drawing thousands of gun owners and employees of the state’s gun industry to the Capitol. Gun control opponents are pressing for a public hearing before the bill that was hammered out by legislative leaders reaches the floor.
Several other states, notably New York and Colorado, have already passed new gun legislation in the aftermath of Sandy Hook.
Connecticut lawmakers have taken steps to craft a bipartisan bill. They created a task force to examine gun policy, school security and mental health policy in response to the Sandy Hook massacre.
But, said Bye, Monday “is the most significant day yet, when the caucuses decide whether this is going to go on Wednesday. Tomorrow is a turning point.”
I read this freedom robbing list, twice, and concluded that not a single one of these items will stop the gang shootings or the massacres like the one at Newtown. Looks like we will need to have another SCOTUS smack down of these fucking liberty stealing communists. And, that gun law they passed in NY, for example? Even the Post Standard, a left wing rag, had to admit, albeit while trying to defend the unconstitutional and horribly flawed bill, that it was a pile of shit. In fact, the law was so poorly written, that’s what you get when you hurry to pass a law so you can capitalize on emotion – again, kind of like Obamacare, which we are now discovering won’t lower costs, will limit access, and will result in rationing, and guarantees the healthcare system in the US is going to take some major steps backwards – that it fucked over the state police’s ability to respond to shootings like Newtown. Lucky for law abiding citizens, it looks like it will not survive the courts. And this pile of shit they want to pass in CT, will end up with the same faith.
Leviathan wants to control people. They need citizens disarmed. That’s what these laws do. Not a single item here would prevent Newtown or other mad people from doing the same. I am not even going to bother explaining how criminals, and especially the gangs, will see this whole law as a boon to them. Unarmed citizens are easier to take advantage off, especially with the police always minutes away when seconds count, and these laws will do nothing to deter them from getting their guns. What is clear is that the left might pretend they care about gun violence, but the goal is to undermine, if not outright destroy, the 2nd amendment, and you do that only because you see advantage in a populous that can not defend itself. This is not being done to help us: it is being done so they can tighten the collar around our necks even harder without worrying that there will be consequences.
