You know all those times that conservatives have been mocked for arguing that Democrats were trying to take guns away from Americans? Well it turns out that we were right all along.
Democrat legislators in Connecticut just passed legislation that will allow authorities to confiscate the guns and ammunition of anyone who is ACCUSED of domestic abuse. Connecticut’s horrible liberal Governor, Dannel Malloy, is expected to sign the bill into law.
Accused domestic abusers would have to surrender firearms within 24 hours under legislation that won final approval in the Senate on Monday afternoon and now heads to the governor for his expected signature.
The bill was approved 23-13 after a two-and-three-quarter hour debate, in which Republicans failed in three attempts to amend it. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who proposed the legislation, indicated right after the vote that he supports the bill, which would require alleged domestic abusers — in most cases, men — to immediately give up their guns and ammunition if their partners seek restraining orders.
The people of Connecticut elected these ignorant and lawless liberals to office, so there is little chance that a large number of them will fight back against the attack on our Constitution. However, one can hope that some number of patriotic citizens in the ironically nicknamed “Constitution State” will stand against this disgusting injustice. Sadly, with the death of Justice Scalia and the ever-increasing likelihood of a Democrat President in 2017, this law may become the first in a devastating series of legal losses that bring an end to our “RIGHT” to self-defense and our right to do so with a firearm.
Gird yourselves conservatives, the battle isn’t coming… it’s already here.
