Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- The State of Connecticut says that all citizens must register rifles and high capacity magazines, or be charged will a felony. As many as 350,000 people could face heavily armed police smashing down their doors and be charged with a felony.

The legislature of Connecticut says that a registration is needed so they can know where the guns are. Yet at the same time, they are sending threatening letters to gun owners. So they already have records of who has purchased certain guns. The fact is, that the Connecticut legislature fully intends to confiscate hundreds of thousands of firearms anyway. The registration process will simply make it easier to confiscate, because you acknowledge that you still own a firearm that the state already suspects that you own.

In a recorded phone call Connecticut State Police Spokesman Lt. Vance was reached at at (860) 685-8290 and says that state police would comply with an order from the state to conduct door to door gun confiscations.

Experts claim that as many as 350,000 people are in violation of the law, and over 100,000 of those people could face felony charges. That means over 3.6% of the entire adult population of Connecticut has been transformed into a felon by the new registration law. Roughly one in twenty Connecticut homes could have their doors smashed in by heavily armed law enforcement seeking to confiscate firearms.

    1. The state police spokesman says… but he doesn’t have to do it. Are the guys in the field ready to forego their oath to defend the constitution? Are they ready to be held accountable for that action by the citizens of CT? Do the math…

    2. Perhaps this could be the start of it then. I hope any Sheriff would standup to the state police. I also hope the people there will form together and plan out their response. In addition, the state police should plan on the loss of life, even some of their own.

    3. The CommieCRats are taking over this country…State Troopers are now becoming the henchmen of a tyrannical government and they do not see the harm they are doing by submitting themselves to this disgrace…The state police and or other police agencies other than the country sheriffs are prone to thumb their noses at our US Constitution and the second amendment rights of its citizens…It’s a sad state of affairs for freedom loving people in America when jack booted thugs rule the day!

    4. Remember: Evil exists because good men don’t kill the government officials committing it.
      Thought For The Day: Timing Is Everything
      If you start shooting the bad guys early enough to make a difference, you’ll be labeled a radical crazy person.
      If you wait until it’s acceptable, you’ll be 80 pounds underweight, unarmed, and being loaded into a boxcar.
      Then there’s the fact that more Americans have been killed by the police than in the wars in the Middle East during the same time interval … And the rate of police killing citizens is increasing rapidly as police forces become more militarized.
      Police training isn’t nearly what it’s cracked up to be (I know – I was a sworn police officer). 
      Don’t drink the “only government should have guns” kool-aid … Law abiding people who legally carry guns are extraordinarily responsible, careful, and competent. Defensive use of guns against criminals saves at least 65 times more lives each year than criminal misuse of guns takes.
      Then, there are the government crimes. VERY bad, evil, murderous things have ALWAYS happened when only the government and it’s agents had guns (other weapons like swords in past times).
      262 MILLION people were murdered BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENTS in the 20th century – AFTER they allowed those governments to disarm them. See: http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/20TH.HTM
      They ALL thought “It can’t happen here” – until they were disarmed and it started, then it was too late. Don’t make the same mistake. Don’t EVER let your government disarm you.
      I saw a movie once where only the military and police had guns … What was the name? “SCHINDLER’S LIST”

    5. I am writing this in the gun rights state of kansas!!!their is a new bil being introduced now that gives the citizens of kansas the right too have a concelled weapon in their cars without a concelled permit!! Kansas is the way too go people!! The Kansas state reps. voted over, please dont quote me on this but,voted 270- 30 or so too defend the constitution!!! given that im ready too fire my gun now!!! Connecticute!!:STAND FIRM!!! STAND UR GROUND, BE PROUD!!!! TAKE NO SH*T!!!!

    6. Sturmführer Vance got one thing right. When Ashley said “We’re the masters, OK?”, Vance replied “No, I’m the master”. He’s right. As long as they can force us to pay them through the theft known as taxation we are their slaves & they are our masters. Those who think that we need some taxes, have you wised up yet? Stop being a willing slave.

    7. It’s funny (well, no it’s not) that the demoncraps have said over and over that “registration doesn’t mean confiscation.” And this gem. “We are not going to confiscate anybody’s guns.” And yet, here we are. The law enforcement officials need to be put in their place. THEY ARE THE SERVANTS AND WE ARE THEIR MASTERS!! If this sh(t progresses any further, I’m afraid there will be bloodshed. And most of the blame will be placed at the feet of this a**hole!

    8. Oldgringo If you think the county sheriffs are going to save you , you are in for a rude awakening ! they well be right there with the state police kicking down your door , they don’t want to lose there privileged place on the pecking order ,siding with the peasants .

    9. Where will they imprison all these “felons” after they are convicted? When will they have time to schedule all these trials? What about juries, will there be jury trials? If there are any gun or gun related companies left in Conn., please accept my invitation to move to the South. We appreciate you here.

    10. Well this guy just basically declared war on the people who he is suppose to protect. What a moron, you are going to pin a bunch of police officers with very little actual combat experience against 100,000 armed citizens prepared to die, not a good look for CT. Two things happen here 1. the officers in charge of confiscating the guns refuse to do so, forcing law makers to amend the law or 2. They move forward with this and a lot of people die, militias form and the NG eventually steps in and a lot of people in government are in deep hot kettle of water after all the blood shed and martial law.

    11. The police whether in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, Red China (where they carry out direct killings) or in the U.S. (in many bad examples) will enforce whatever the law says they are to enforce. Technically and unfortunately that police culture (made up of their psychological make up in most cases) makes them the first support line of the enemies of the Constitution and Bill of Rights who are in political office and put forth these laws. No police officer has been drafted into that job–they all volunteer, they have their choices.

    12. @Dan,
      What makes you think “a lot of people in government” will be in hot water? They’ve already committed to “transforming America”.
      From their perspective a violent uprising is justification for “suspension of all rights” via Martial Law.

    13. I will stand against any group that claims door to door confiscation is legal. These actions go against our Constitutional Rights and can NOT be allowed to occur.

    14. “As many as 350,000 people could face heavily armed police smashing down their doors and be charged with a felony.”

      Not really. I have a feeling they will run out of cops before they run out of jail cells.

    15. I wonder, does this mean we need to stock up on far more effective fire power? Is the 50 cal BMG too light?

      Will CT drive all gun purchases underground? With CNC, do we really need buy them from Arms makers?

    16. This state is so f-ed it’s unbelievable ,so happy I’m leaving CT in july for colorado ,I just can’t take the insanity anymore

    17. County sheriffs are our last line of defense against federal/state tyranny. They are our only ELECTED officials, not beholden to the whims of a corrupt beauocracy.

    18. So much said for any loyalty at all to the United States constitution , t6hese are ineed fascist gestapo with absolutely no regard for rights of the people that are paid to serve , just like their communist leaders in the State capital . I have seen no sign of anyone in New England with any courage since the revolutionary war , when ALL heroes were killed off and only the genetic cowards survived by hiding from the British .

    19. that is my main question, did these LE, not take an oath to uphold the constitution?

      if any of you LEOs are watching this page. know that you will be in the wrong. just like any of the Nazi’s that claimed, they were just following orders

    20. Sheriff, elected or appointedis NOT the last line of defense
      ! Your in a Commonwealth State, Sheriff’s have county jurisdiction
      And your Constables have State Jurisdictions.
      Executive powers on the state…
      Your veterans, your sons, brothers, and even the WWII vet
      That can’t walk butim sure he can still shoot straightish!
      Last line of defense my ass! The federal government knows better!

    21. I’m reminded that during the million biker ride on Washington that the people who wanted to watch via web cams saw…. nothing but ordinary traffic.

    22. I wonder if the state police are taking into account how many people from outside the state of Connecticut will be willing to help Connecticut residents maintain their second amendment rights? A good strategy is don’t wait until the fight ends up on your doorstep. I’m merely talking about activism not armed resistance of course

    23. POTUS Obama told the truth, he won’t take our guns…..what he did not say is somebody else will; Local LEO, Sheriff, Trooper, etc.

      They will come door to door with their SWAT uniforms, AR rifles, lasers, flash bangs, gas,
      with their shiny new armored transports all paid for by HomeLand Insecurity grants.

      Oh and don’t forget the ultimate behemoth command and control center on wheels, tricked out RV by Winnebago.

      Remember the news clips during the lock down for the Boston Marathon Bombers?

    24. There can be a market for private out of state ranges that will hold your ‘banned’ firearms for you until the ‘bad gun’ laws are obsoleted with new legislation.

    25. I sent the following e-mail to the CT State Police Captain: Sir, I find it interesting that you have stated you will comply with an order from the CT legislature to attempt door to door gun confiscation, and arrests of those considered in violation of the registration law. So, correct me if I’m wrong, but you intend to violate your oath to defend and protect the Constitution for the United States of America, but honor an order from a group of bureaucrats who also violate their oath. Are you nuts? Have you read any of the hundreds of reports that show gun registration or prohibition has not worked anywhere? According to FBI statistics, the four cities with the highest criminal violence, Washington, DC, New York, Detroit and New Orleans, also have the toughest guns laws in the U.S. Do you realize you are following a mandate from the most corrupt, dishonest, treasonous president in the history of our nation? Why would anyone follow a man like Obama, who is probably not even eligible to hold the office of president, and who does not have the respect of any of the worlds leaders? What has he promised you for your efforts? Money? More equipment for your department? A place in his administration? Frankly, your intended actions defy understanding. It appears that you are a man also without honor, without integrity, without honesty, and sadly lacking in intelligence. I’ll bet none of the legislators who passed this insane law intend to accompany your officers on this mission. Well, I hope God will be with the families of your officers and also with the families of the victims of your arrogance. I doubt this will end well, but I’m sure your name will go down in the annals of history, and maybe that’s what you want. “Here lies The Captain, a dumb-ass to the end.” Sincerely, Ajeocci

    26. Maybe if enough of these thugs with badges and guns get a bullet in their bodies while kicking people’s doors in will they take a hint.

    27. If these pig headed law-breakers ahem, I mean law enforcers want to enforce an illegal law, there’s going to be bullets flying, and justly so! This is how the 1st Revolution got started.

    28. This will end ugly. Sorry to say, but if troopers knock on or knock down doors to confiscate guns that the state deems as illegal but are protected by the SUPREME law of the land, the Constitution, I will side with the gun owner. And I am a supporter of our police agencies…..as long as they support the Constitution.

      They want to make honest, law abiding citizens into felons. Now, call me crazy, but the 2nd Amendment and our Constitution trumps any state law. Or at least it used to. Many of these gun owners will not go down easily, and there will be blood on both sides. Sad.

      Glad I didn’t vote for Tyranny…and for those of you who read this that did make a few “cute” votes….change your ways, stop being cute with your vote. Vote Pro-Constitution the rest of your lives.

    29. yeah and doing that you dumbass how many officers are going to die. if some one kicks my door in shoot first ask questions later that’s the dumbest thing besides Obama I have ever heard

    30. This is a very sad day in America. I never thought i’d live long enough to see “Storm-Troopers” coming to knock down our ( We the People )’s doors to try to take our guns. The guns that the state has deemed illegal, without being registered, are NOT illegal per the Constitution, therefore the state has already infringed on the 2nd Amendment just by passing that law. I can assure you that there will be blood spilled on the front steps of the citizens of the United States when they try to carry this out. The mentality of the gov’t. has completely disappeared even when they start talking about this. You are going to make criminals out of ever legal gun owner in this country, and they will be very violent because you are trying to take their God-Given Right to protect themselves away from them, all-the-while, doing nothing about the real criminals with guns like do the school and mall shootings, or kill off their families. No they will still be bearing arms when all the good citizens are dead or dying, right along with all your state police that stopped obeying their oath to follow the illegal orders you gave them.

    31. NOW you know one of the many reasons WHY responsible gun owners in Michigan are fighting to STOP the dangerous Senate Bill 789 (our state police are under the command of an open gun control advocate!)! The NRA-ILA admits on their own website that the MSP are Gun-Control, NOT citizen 2nd Amendment-friendly! Will YOU be responsible for endangering the lives of Michigan gun owners & our rights too? I pray you will reconsider and openly join us to strongly oppose Michigan’s misguided Senate Bill 789 of 2014 that turns our gun rights over to the same kind of mindset you see in CT today! Thanks.

    32. Lemme see if I have this right. Connecticut and New York passed these stupid, and in my opinion unconstitutional, laws to stem gun violence and now intend to send armed men to people’s homes to do violence upon them. Must be liberal logic. I wonder what the odds makers, in Vegas, are posting on state troopers vs. a couple hundred thousand armed citizens.

    33. All I have heard for 30 year is they don’t want to take away your guns, It’s just some common sense laws, It’s for the children. One big thirty year line of bull excrement. You are disgusting LIARS and are hell bent on forcing a civil war that you WILL ultimately LOOSE. ENOUGH lies. Start removing ANY politician who does not grasp AND understand why the constitution was written.

    34. I predict police getting shot and killed by some people, if the police do that. Maybe that’s what needs to happen, I’m sure it would send the government a message not f with the people who pay you.

    35. My eyes water up as I read so many law abiding gun owners comments of how they have had enough of these lies from the left. “Registration does not mean confiscation” they’ve told us all these years…well now they seem to be showing their true colors, they want to confiscate the legal guns of law abiding citizens. What was legal and fine with the CT Gov’t one day, is illegal and wrong the next, all with the swipe of a pen. Overnight, hundreds of thousands of CT citizens went from law abiding to felons. I cry Bull Sh*t! I fear there will be bloodshed over this. I hope the Chief of the CT State Troopers is prepared for it.

    36. If the State of Connecticut is going to make you a felon, unable to purchase a gun legally though not unconstitutionally, it is time to preserve your ability to defend yourself, your family, your state, country, and the Constitution. You won’t be able to equip yourself toward those ends if you sit quietly as you are stripped of your rightly owned arms. It appears it is too late to legislatively defeat or judicially put asunder this onerous law. The ground you stand on is now the last ground you may be able to stand on. Once you are a felon, that is forever on your record. What have you got to lose after that?

      You gun owners in Connecticut have done nothing wrong.


    37. If they already have the records and who has what and serial numbers; why do they need registration? For taxation and confiscation only.

    38. Can anyone tell me, sarcasm aside, what problem gun registration allegedly solves or, at least, mitigates? In other words, how many crimes involving guns in the state of Connecticut have gone unsolved that would’ve theoretically been solved were the gun(s) involved register.

      This strikes me as one of those knee jerk reactions that Siva good abs reasonable to the frightened, unthinking types but when you look at theactual statistics of the problem the law is allegedly intended to solve, it doesn’t add up.


    39. Thugs

      Any “peace officer” who tries to enforce this should be treated as the Nazi collaborator that he is. When they start knocking on doors in the dark of night all bets should be off. They are not the law; they are the enemy. They are no longer cops. They have crossed the line. It’s as simple as that. I’ve been going to city and county meetings for years. I’ve seen how cops are just tickled pink to act as goons for corrupt officials and go after citizens who exhibit any signs of free speech. In relation to an unrelated issue I went to a meeting in Rialto CA recently to complain about those Audio Terrorists and their “boomer cars” and found myself surrounded, bullied and threatened by five cops after the meeting for having the unmitigated gall to speak during Public Comment. This is almost routine here in the Inland Empire. I really wish I could find a Militia in this area.

    40. “That’s what we have attorney’s for”

      Here’s an excerpt from a letter I wrote “Public Records” that can be found in my Facebook Notes. I used to be big on freedom of information issues related to Public Documents. What Lt. Vance is basically telling her is to go screw herself:

      “My County Supervisor is Barbara Riordon. Ray Millian, the aide that was assigned to talk with, me has not responded to my repeated requests that this issue, (cost of copies), be addressed. All San Bernardino County Supervisors have also recieved complaints about county fees from me. When I inquired about the status of my complaint to County Council Craig Jordon, his answers went: “I cannot respond to that” “it’s not a matter I wish to talk about” “I cannot respond to that” “I have no comment in respect to that” He basically cited attorney-client privilage and said that he wasn’t accountable to the public, that his job was to provide legal council to his “clients” the County Board of Supervisors. He commented that if I had a problem with his lack of response I was free to hire an attorney.”

      It is all about Us vs. Them. Public Employees (cops) are bankrupting communities across the country with the obscene pay and benis bestowed upon them by our city councils and county administrations. It’s all about “I Got Mine”. Not “To Protect And To Serve”. It’s no longer “Don’t Tread On Me” or “Home of the Free and land of the Brave” it’s now “Are You In Compliance?”

      I STRONGLY suggest reading these two books or at least going to Amazon…

    41. The law states that taking you gun out of state is one of the solutions. So they are going to kick down doors not know whether that gun is there or not? Boy I can see the lawsuits flying now. BTW I do not advocate registering or getting rid of guns, but if someone did take the gun out of state are you supposed to inform the government of that action?

    42. Very similar to what the Nazi’s did prior to WWII. Made all gun owners register in the name of “public safety” and then right before the ole crap hit the fan, went and rounded up all the guns!

    43. I have a feeling that the State Police will make matters worse and begin the next American Revolution in this country with the kicking in of doors and shooting of Ct Citizens who, until Dec 31st, didn’t break any laws and had legal weapons and Magazine. It will escalate to other states and the politicians will be hiding under their beds, wishing they had a gun because you know someone is going to come for them. After all, now their names, addresses and pictures on on line. What goes around, comes around. Its not the law abiding people the politicians should have been going after. Its the criminals but these gun haters won’t listen to reason.

      Public Act 13-220 An Act Concerning Revisions to the Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety Act.
      Public Act 13-3 (SB 1160) An Act Concerning Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety Effective Date: See individual sections SUMMARY This complex act contains several changes to laws that govern the possession, transfer and sale of firearms and addresses a variety of mental health and school safety issues. Relatively few of the act’s provisions involve the Probate Courts. Those that do are summarized below. Assault weapons and large capacity magazines Sections 23 through 31: The act prospectively prohibits the sale, transfer, and possession of assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines. A grandfather provision permits an individual who has legally owned assault weapons or large capacity magazines before May 4, 2013 to retain possession, provided that the owner files the necessary documents with the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.
      Assault weapons and large capacity magazines may not be sold or transferred to anyone in Connecticut other than a licensed gun dealer. They may, however, be passed to others by bequest or intestate succession. The executor or administrator of the estate must obtain authorization from the Probate Court for the transfer, and the heir or beneficiary must file documentation with the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection. See Section 23 (large capacity magazines) and Section 26 (assault weapons). (Effective April 4, 2013) Ineligible persons Sections 34 and 44: Federal law prohibits an individual from purchasing or possessing firearms if he or she has been committed to an institution for treatment of a psychiatric disability or if a court has appointed a conservator for the person in an involuntary proceeding. The act codifies the same prohibitions as state law.
      In addition, the act prohibits an individual from possessing a firearm for 60 months following an involuntary commitment and for six months following a voluntary admission to a hospital for treatment of a psychiatric disability. A person who is ineligible to possess firearms or ammunition must, within two days of the event that triggered the prohibition, sell or transfer the firearms or ammunition to an eligible person or surrender them to the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection. A person who surrenders a firearm to the Department retains the ability to sell or transfer it within one year of the surrender.
      A *conservator is obligated to transfer or surrender firearms in the possession of a conserved person and to prevent the conserved person from having access to firearms owned by others. An ineligible person who fails to transfer or surrender a firearm or ammunition may be guilty of a Class C felony. (Effective October 1, 2013) Name change Section 21: Existing law requires that the court notify the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection when an application for a change of name is filed by a person who is required to register as a sexual offender. The commissioner has standing to object to the requested name change. The act amends C.G.S. section 45a-99 to make the same provisions applicable to individuals who are required to register as offenders convicted of committing a crime with a deadly weapon. (Effective January 1, 2014)
      Public Act 13-220 (SB 1094) An Act Concerning Revisions to the Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety Act Effective date: See individual sections SUMMARY This act amends P.A. 13-3, discussed above. Again, only a few of the sections pertain to the Probate Courts. Sections 1 and 5 amend sections 23 and 26 of P.A. 13-3 to clarify that the exceptions to the law that allow large capacity magazines and assault weapons to pass to a party by bequest or intestate succession include bequests to a trust or transfers from a trust to a beneficiary under the terms of the trust. (Effective upon passage)
      Section 20 amends C.G.S. section 45a-100, which addresses applications to the Probate Courts from individuals seeking relief from federal firearms disability. Section 20 precludes the court from granting such relief if state law prohibits the petitioner from possessing firearms due to an involuntary commitment, within the preceding 60 months or a voluntary commitment within the preceding six months. (Effective October 1, 2013)

    45. I still want to know, what the hell is an assault weapon? Perhaps Gov. Malloy can clarify because most gun owners I am acquainted with are likewise baffled.

    46. The FEDS and State officials who swore to up hold the Constitution, need to read the Book “The Constitution of The United States” published by the National Center For Constitutional Studies. Thomas Jefferson an “ORIGINAL” signer of the Constitution says in the book, “On every question of construction, [let us] carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it passed”! Seems to me our politicians needs to retake American History and understand just what Mr. Jefferson meant. It certainly means to leave the Constitution alone, they KNEW what they were doing and the 2nd Amendment means EXACTLY what is says. The right to bear arms, SHALL NOT be infringed upon!

    47. As Capt. John Parker said at Lexington Greene, “If they mean to have a war, let it begin here”, Connecticut is ripe for this war. I fear it is coming, but I WILL NOT SURRENDER my guns< I WILL NOT re-register my guns to no man or unconstitutional law! I fought for my Country, two tours Viet Nam, not afraid to die again! So bring it on Commie Malloy and your henchmen! Bring it on!

    48. SWAT teams are real macho when they descend in force on peaceful unarmed raw-milk farmers and such. i think Porky “don’t-ask-questions-about-sandy-hoax” Vance should lead his queer gestapo against these armed-to-the-teeth mad-as-hell American Patriots.
      ha ha FAT chance.

    49. Time to look for an indictment Under Color of Law
      As soon as Ted Cruz becomes our next Attorney General of the USA.

    50. McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), is a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of the United States that determined whether the Second Amendment applies to the individual states. The Court held that the right of an individual to “keep and bear arms” protected by the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and applies to the states. The decision cleared up the uncertainty left in the wake of District of Columbia v. Heller as to the scope of gun rights in regard to the states.

    51. “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

      Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    52. If the governor of CT orders the state police to confiscate weapons the he/she and the police officers need to be removed immediately by any means necessary.

    53. here we go again.. first shot heard ’round the world.. get ready for action! We the people should all rise up and declare that we are all from Connecticut! These gun grabbers are unlawful, treasonous terrorists from within our ranks.. dispel them all when they come knocking.. they fully are aware of the use of lethal force hidden between the lines of our greatest 2nd Amendment! The fool in this case is the gun grabber who comes knocking!

    54. They are taking guns over a completely staged event, with no bodies, blood or death certificates. Did you see any funerals on TV ? No . . .
