Navy Veteran, 20-year fireman, father, and law abiding citizen of Connecticut, John Cinque stood up to lawmakers in defense of his 2ND Amendment rights. Connecticut lawmakers seized the tragedy of Sandy Hook to outlaw ownership of certain weapons and magazines. John Cinque began speaking to lawmakers by asking if anything in their gun bill could have prevented that tragedy. Lawmakers could not say the gun bill would have prevented Sandy Hook or any other tragedy. John Cinque received applause from the audience for calling out lawmakers for supporting unconstitutional legislation.
According to the State of Connecticut Emergency Services and Public Protection website, owners of “banned assault weapons that have not been registered and/or a high capacity magazine that they have not declared” have options:
What can someone do if they are in possession of a banned assault weapon that has not been registered and/or a high capacity magazine that they have not declared?
* Sell the assault weapon(s) and/or large capacity magazines(s) to a federally licensed firearms dealer(CGS section ;53-202d, ;
* Remove the assault weapon(s) and/or large capacity magazines(s) from the state (CGS section ;
* Arrange to relinquish your assault weapon(s) and/or large capacity magazine(s) to a police department or state troop having jurisdiction
where you reside; (CGS sections 53-202e ), or
*Render the assault weapon(s) and/or large capacity magazine(s) permanently inoperable (section 53-202d).
Another question found on the Connecticut website:
I just moved into Connecticut and I possess an Assault Weapon. May I keep the weapon or if not what are my options?
Within 90 days of moving to Connecticut, you may sell the weapon to any licensed gun dealer, or you must do one of the following:
a) Render the weapon permanently inoperable,
b) Sell it to an out of state dealer,
c) Relinquish the weapon to a law enforcement agency.
If you keep the weapon you risk a felony arrest.
Clearly this is step one toward gun confiscation and Connecticut residents and all Americans must resist this assault on our liberty. Could laws such as this be coming to your state? Yes! Make no mistake about it, the enemies of liberty who have come to steal and destroy are working hard at disarming law-abiding citizens. It bears repeating, “elections do have consequences.”
Lawmakers are ignoring the Constitution, and citizens across the United States need to be aware of proposed legislation in our individual states and follow John Cinque’s lead in telling lawmakers we “will not comply” with their unconstitutional gun laws and we will not vote for any candidate who plans to ignore the Constitution of the United States of America. The purpose of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military power of the people so we will have means to resist tyranny. Gun ownership is our birthright as Americans. As Patrick Henry stated:
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force: Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”
