HITLER WOULD BE PROUD: Paper In CT Calls For Cops to Jail Thousands For Refusing To Register Guns

By / 20 February 2014

Sounds almost tyrannical that a government would use one of their databases of citizens to track down and arrest those citizens because they aren’t in their new database of citizens. Well, that’s what might happen in CT.

By some estimates, 20,000 – 100,000 residents may have failed to register their firearms with the state. Here is what The [Hartford] Courant has to say about that in a recent editorial,

Although willful noncompliance with the law is doubtless a major issue, it’s possible that many gun owners are unaware of their obligation to register military-style assault weapons and would do so if given another chance.

But the bottom line is that the state must try to enforce the law. Authorities should use the background check database as a way to find assault weapon purchasers who might not have registered those guns in compliance with the new law.

A Class D felony calls for a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Even much lesser penalties or probation would mar a heretofore clean record and could adversely affect, say, the ability to have a pistol permit.

If you want to disobey the law, you should be prepared to face the consequences.

  1. The government doesn’t need to put a “monitor” in this newsroom.

    To quote one of the chimps in Madagascar, “Well, of course we’re going to throw poo at him!”

  2. Ah, quisling suck-ups hoping for a rewarding place in the new order when they’ll probably be thrown in jail or worse for being “unreliable.”

  3. The Connecticut newspaper should really give some serious consideration to their recommendation.. Just imagine arresting and sentencing 20,000 plus gun owners. The state would have lost the revenues generated by those convicted, their families would probably have to consider going on welfare as the court costs would bankrupt them, the state would not doubt have to erect additional prison facilities and hire more personnel and because these gun owners would be imprisoned and deprived of their weapons, crime in their communities would be on the rise. My recommendation would be should one gun owner suffer prosecution, the gun owners in Connecticut should rise up and tar and feather any member of the newspaper’s staff who initiated this. Thereafter, the gun owners should indicate that the same could happen to any politician who wishes to impinge on their second amendment rights. It was good enough for our forefathers to do this to the crown’s tax collectors before the American Revolution, why not now? A stand must be taken. We must
    ‘hang’ together or to be sure we will all hang separately.

  4. Shades of “Der Stürmer, “.
    “Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people. (…) All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed. (…) The art of propaganda consists precisely in being able to awaken the imagination of the public through an appeal to their feelings, in finding the appropriate psychological form that will arrest the attention and appeal to the hearts of the national masses. The broad masses of the people are not made up of diplomats or professors of public jurisprudence nor simply of persons who are able to form reasoned judgment in given cases, but a vacillating crowd of human children who are constantly wavering between one idea and another. (…) The great majority of a nation is so feminine in its character and outlook that its thought and conduct are ruled by sentiment rather than by sober reasoning. This sentiment, however, is not complex, but simple and consistent. It is not highly differentiated, but has only the negative and positive notions of love and hatred, right and wrong, truth and falsehood.”
    “Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favourable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favourable to its own side. (…) The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward. (…) Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula.”

  5. What the person or persons responsible for this editorial need to realize is that their anti Second Amendment stance may bite them in the you know what. If the Second amendment goes, which one is next? Freedom of the press?

  6. Whether this liberal piece of crap newspaper realizes it or not, this socialist law is in fact an infringement on the Second ammendment rights. Really they need to get their brins out of their butts. Unless a citizen has a class 3 firearms license they cannot own a military weapon of which is a select fire weapon. These so called assault weapons stripped of their fancy covering are nothing but a semi-automatic hunting rifle. But as usual, these liberal politicians with a brain the size of a grain of sand have no clue of what they are talking about. They promote fear to gain power over the people. Within the next few years these fools that fell for this registration will lose their protection more than likely by force in the middle of the night or early morning. Tyranny is running deep in all forms of government so say a prayer tonight for the lord to watch over our souls and our freedom. God Bless America.

  9. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this interesting post. What a ridiculous maneuver on the part of this Connecticut newspaper. I am intrigued that the management of this outfit allowed this to happen in the first place.
