The British are coming!

Obama praises the British and the French and the Australians for their strict gun control and it seems to be coming here to a state near you. Referring to Connecticut's new law against assault weapons and high-capacity magazine's; if your state required you to register your ARs and turn in or destroy your high-capacity magazines would you comply? Estimates are that there are tens of thousands of Connecticut patriots who refused to comply making them class D felons. When would you take a stand knowing that registration is the last step before confiscation?

I don't know that it will come to that? I would suggest buying now though if you think you'll be needing a few more AR type guns or high capacity mags. It's looking good for "the Donald" at the moment but if he doesn't win and a few seats in congress turn blue...
Things could change pretty fast.

Of the 15 Republican candidates we had at the beginning of the convention Donald was on the bottom of my list. But I will walk over broken glass barefoot to vote for him as a vote against Hillary. I've heard some conservative Republican types who say they just cannot vote for Donald so they're going to stay home. I say to them get off your moral high horse and do something even if you have to hold your nose when you pull the lever or punch the chad. If you don't vote you have no right to complain about what you get and I don't even want to hear about it from you.

I would not comply. Never. But noncompliance doesn't correct the wrong of them even asking/telling me to. That part there is where I'm uncertain what to do. Seems like just doing my part with voting, staying informed and staying in the discussion isn't slowing the chiselling away of rights.

Your neck of the woods tends to stay blue so I'm sure it's worse than GA where we're always red. The reason it "seems" as though your rights are being chiseled away is because they ARE, unless of course you're talking about rights to free stuff or something involving weirdness. Got to keep trying though...

I will always follow the law, I am behind the lines in a not so free state. To say anything different on a Internet forum would not be the smartest thing to do. I suggest that we all follow the law, no matter how ridiculous and unamerican it is.

There still has to be years of court challenges ahead. I think your rifles are safe if the leaders of the state file immediately under the 2A, 4A, 5A and 10A.

Such a law violates all of these enumerated rights. It will take a decade to unknot it. All it takes is a little courage.

No one thought Scott Walker had a chance to make Wisconsin a RTW state or cut taxes, but he did. Ten other states are now suing Barry over the bathroom fiasco.

Barry should get hauled into court on this, too.

I've come across people from Connecticut that refuse to comply with their new laws. I really don't know what the right answer is because if you use one of those guns in self defense their going to crucify you. In NYC you can't buy any gun without applying for a permit. (rifle, shotgun or pistol). If you are court each gun is a 15 year sentence. A police officer told me that.
I purchased my AR15 as soon as Obama became President. I don't shoot it enough but I wanted one.

I don't own an AR, in fact I've never even handled one. I'd have to travel for over an hour just to get to a range where I could shoot one. I do have a safe full of long guns but they haven't been shot in over 20 years. I've been slowly giving them to my son who lives out of state.

Unless they change the Constitution, no sitting president can change the law and take our guns. Ain't happening. Everyone knows there will be blood in the streets if they try. All the LEOs I know would not attempt to enforce such a law.
