CT newspaper wants jail for 20,000-10,000 Americans who refuse to register their guns

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.

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!”

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.”

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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?

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… Read more »

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.
