Just my two cents, for what it's worth.

And GreyFox makes a good point. It's absurd to assume that people can simply leave a state if they don't like the politics. That's why we have a U.S. Constitution-- to set a minimum standard of protection of Rights that should survive any economic or social needs. That may be why Federal pre-emption of anti-Second Amendment laws might be the best course of action. Fighting these battles state by state is just not working.
I think that the NRA's major talent has always been their ground game with the polititians and influencial organizations,one on one. In the end, they determine our outcome. The very recent declaration of the ACLU's position against gun registration may very well be one of he most important positions tha could kill Obama's target legislation with the highest chance of passing. You can rest assured that the NRA was behind this significant win that could secure the blue state politicians. The NRA may not be perfect but they are all we have, and have proven to be able to scare the **** out of the politicians. If you are not a member.....join! IMO.

Re: New Gun Laws in Connecticut

i too live in CT and am feeling enslaved overnight. the governor just signed.
This is the dumbest response to a tragic situation that i have seen in my time here on the planet. The 2nd was the Warren Commission report on the death of JFK. tied for 2nd was the creation/redefinition of the DHS and freedom/human rights infringements that followed the 911 tragedy.

Laws/decisions born by emotion serve no one except the grieving few; those few are now feeling that they did something good to counteract their personal losses and can clear their conscience (all at the expense of the others around them).

Clear thinking can not not accomplished by the human mind during a grieving state of mind. so many smart people and they do not understand the laws of nature......

there isnt 1 single line that makes sense here....
AN ACT CONCERNING GUN VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND CHILDREN'S SAFETY.

im also not seeing anything in place right now to take care of business under the new law; no forms, no one to approve.... and the ramp up cost seems to be millions of additional tax payer $.

I guess it is time to look for employment and a place to live in another state......

This from the NYTimes today...

In Shift, Police Advise Taking an Active Role to Counter Mass Attacks
By ERICA GOODE
Published: April 6, 2013

The speed and deadliness of recent high-profile shootings have prompted police departments to recommend fleeing, hiding or fighting in the event of a mass attack, instead of remaining passive and waiting for help."


So let me get this straight. You take away our guns, and now you're telling us to fight against armed mass murderers because the police cannot get there in time!

Exactly what are we suppose to fight with? Huh!?

Re: New Gun Laws in Connecticut

I know. I've heard Colt may leave. I hope that doesn't happen.

This is where the battle lines need to be drawn.

There's a tendency of folks out west to think that people in the Northeast, and particularly in CT, are anti-Second Amendment socialist nitwits. This is untrue and unfair. I have yet to find anyone who actually supports what the anti-Second Amendment police state zealots have done here. The CT de facto Gun Ban was rammed through a dimwitted legislature by a power hungry control freak governor and his out of state anti-gun special interest friends.

And this is a bipartisan sentiment. There are far more Boone and Crockett Democrats around here than you may realize. (There's a reason why Cabellas located a huge store right in the center of CT.) The right to not be disarmed and enslaved is a universal human longing.

Please, my fellow citizens out west, don't give up on us just yet. I was at a meeting yesterday and I know that efforts are underway. Please give us your support.

I am sur that since Colorado has now gone the path of the northeast blue states there will be a lot more nationalistic sentiment concerning second amendment rights no matter what state a person lives. Who would have ever thought Colorado would get screwed. It can happen to any state! We all need to be wayore diligent then we have in the past.
