So, it seems that the politicians in Connecticut are a little perplexed that people aren’t registering their firearms like good little lemmings are supposed to. Given how prior gun registration requirements have morphed into gun confiscation lists I don’t blame the residents of CT one bit. In fact, I may even question the sanity of the 50,000 people who did register.
In reality, gun registration is simply another step along the way to a gun ban which won’t keep anyone safer. We’ve seen it Great Britain, Australia and now New York and California. Crime rates aren’t actually tied in with gun ownership rates, but the gun control lobby just doesn’t seem to grasp reality. Making people register their firearms isn’t going to do a damn thing to reduce crime.
It will be interesting to see what CT ends up doing. When you pass a law that people don’t follow, do you decide to repeal it or enforce it anyway and turn most of your citizens into felons? How much civil disobedience needs to take place before subject matter penetrates the politicians thick skulls?
In a related note, South Carolina governor Haley offered her support to the idea of Constitutional Carry, or the right to bear a firearm without need to get permission from the state. The left wing media and gun control lobby immediately lost its collective shit. The comments on the Rachel Maddow Facebook page are priceless in just how clueless the ignorant sit-at-home-and-bitch-because-I’m-too-scared-to-deal-with-life crowd is.
