Did anyone seriously expect the attacks on our 2nd Amendment Rights to slow here in the PSRK? The state budget is in the red by $1.7B for at least each of the next two years, but as we know, the marxist pigs in Hartford can never get rid of true waste and bloat. I mean, do we really expect them to eliminate political hack jobs like the 2nd Assistant to the Deputy Commissioner of Economic Development in Asia? Or not spend $250M they don't have, to renovate the XL Center in Hartford with the delusional hope that the NY Islanders hockey team might want to move there? Or the ever growing expansion of the "Magic Bus" that state officials STILL haven't produced ridership numbers for? We all knew that boondoggle was going to consume state subsidies forever. In order to try and raise the paltry sum of about $11M, Emperor Dannel I has proposed raising gun permit fees from $70 for five years to $300, as well as other fee increases for background checks.
In light of these proposals, The CT Citizens Defense League posted a blog post about it, which I decided to comment on. The link to the blog is below:
CCDL Blog: CT To Sharply Increase Gun Permit Fees
Scroll down to read my comment of February 12th, and the reply from Chris Lemos of the CCDL. It was his reply that made me realize that the CCDL is no better than Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, BLM, and all the other race-baiting poverty hustlers out there. They need poverty and racial tensions to keep fund raising and living high on the hog. I now view an organization like CCDL the same way. Especially the way they deny the fact that there IS widespread Armed Civil Disobedience in the PSRK, which is confirmed by the fact that the CT State Police have not and will not release the numbers regarding compliance rates. I can attest personally, that the underground gun economy is still quite active, with firearms transfers occurring WITHOUT state permission, and smuggling in of forbidden items from Free states happens regularly. In fact, I would surmise that the PSRK had more control of firearms before 2013 than they do now.
If all of a sudden, the PSRK went full Constitutional Carry and became the freest state in the union as far as firearms go, there would be a bunch of unhappy and unemployed miscreants.
I prefer this......
....over this! These are the sheeple that lined up on the last possible day at the PSRK state public safety complex in Middletown to register their now banned items.
And for anyone that thinks the 2nd Amendment is just about your hunting rights, a brief lesson.
