Gun Owners in Connecticut Line Up for Unconstitutional Gun Registration
The new gun laws in Connecticut go into effect and gun owners and gun shop operators were lined up to register their guns and high volume clips.
WFSB-TV reports that a long line of people were at the Public Safety Building in Middletown, Ct, in order to satisfy the new law that goes into effect Jan 1st, 2014. Gun owners were unhappy about the unconstitutional law that forces them onto a gun registry, especially since it’s not the legal gun owners who use their weapons for crimes and criminals will never register their guns or high capacity clips.
The level of animosity is not as great as it is in New York and Colorado, where weapons were actually banned and some people seemed resigned to the fact, even though they believe the registration violates the U. S. Constitution. One thing everyone seemed to agree on is that this law will not reduce crime at all.
Jared Krajewski, a resident registering firearms, said, “If people are going to do things illegally, they’re not going to be here registering their gun.”
The new gun laws were passed in answer to the Newtown school shootings but it’s hard to see how such a law would have stopped the shooting. It was more or less a knee jerk reaction, meant to show they were doing something, regardless of it’s affects.
