Civil Disobedience: Tens of Thousands from Connecticut Just Say No to Gun Registration

we will not be disarmed

Tens of thousands of people in Connecticut have just knowingly become “criminals” under a hastily passed state law requiring the registration of certain firearms.

The law, adopted after Sandy Hook, bans the sale of any semiautomatic firearm that also has a “military feature” such as a pistol grip. Residents were told that if they register their “assault weapons” by December 31, 2013, that they’d be “allowed” to keep them.

About 50,000 residents dutifully followed the new law, standing in long lines to register their firearms.


However, officials say that this is just a small percentage and that potentially 350,000 “assault weapons” remain unregistered.

A number estimated to be anywhere from 20,000-100,000 people in Connecticut are now committing a Class D felony. Some politicians believe that people failed to register because they didn’t know about the law, while others believe this is a direct act of defiance, similar to the resistance that took place in New York last January.

“I honestly thought from my own standpoint that the vast majority would register,” said Sen. Tony Guglielmo, R-Stafford, the ranking GOP senator on the legislature’s public safety committee. “If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don’t follow them, then you have a real problem.”

The problem could explode if Connecticut officials decide to compare the list of people who underwent background checks to buy military-style rifles in the past, to the list of those who registered in 2013. Do they still own those guns? The state might want to know.

“A lot of it is just a question to ask, and I think the firearms unit would be looking at it,” said Mike Lawlor, the state’s top official in criminal justice. “They could send them a letter.”

An aggressive hunt isn’t going to happen, Lawlor said, but even the idea of letters is a scary thought considering thousands of people are now in an uncomfortable position. At the least, the legislature should reopen the registration period this year with an outreach campaign designed to boost the numbers.

It could be a tough sell. On Thursday night, Guglielmo heard from a constituent at a meeting in Ashford, who said most of his friends with military-style rifles such as AR-15s had not come forward.

“He made the analogy to prohibition,” Guglielmo said. “I said, ‘You’re talking about civil disobedience, and he said ‘Yes.’ ”

But it’s not just refusers. A reopened registration would help many who failed to come forward out of ignorance.

“There are a lot of people, they just do not know about this law,” said Scott Wilson, president of the 12,000-member Connecticut Citizens Defense League, a Second Amendment advocacy group. “There are people finding out now after the fact.”

The law was widely covered in the media and Wilson said his group sent information to its members. But gun owners can be an independent bunch.

Guglielmo, who voted against the sweeping gun control bill, said he intends to raise the concern at the next meeting of the public safety committee. (source)

Yes, gun owners can indeed be “an independent bunch.”  That’s because we know that registration is only a step away from confiscation.

History has proven this time and time again. In a speech, Katie Worthman, who was an eyewitness to Hitler’s occupation of Austria, said:

“We also had gun registration. All the Austrian people… had guns. But the government said, ‘the guns are very dangerous. Children are playing with guns. Hunting accidents happen and we really have to have total controlled safety. And we had criminals again. And the only way that we can trace the criminal was by the serial number of the gun.’

“So we dutifully went to the police station and we registered our guns. Not long after they said, ‘No, it didn’t help. The only way that we won’t have accidents and crimes [is] you bring the guns to the police station and then we don’t have any crimes anymore and any accidents. And if you don’t do that: capital punishment.’ (source)

Those who refuse to register their weapons may one day require support from those who refuse to convict via jury nullification. There is place for everyone in this resistance.

Don’t line up like sheep marching into the slaughterhouse and voluntarily give up your rights. Real Americans refuse to comply with unconstitutional laws. We will not be disarmed.

    “If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don’t follow them, then you have a real problem”.

    Yes, YOU have a problem. Your are obviously drinking to much of the Government cool aid, and have missed the fact that actual citizens are, frankly, just getting sick of you bullshit, and realizing that all this gun registration has absolutely NOTHING to do with stopping crime. Criminals don’t register their weapons, get concealed carry permits, or basically give a crap about any laws you pass.

    And words gotten out. People ARE learning some things about history that they don’t wish to repeat, mainly that Gun registration precedes gun confiscation. Period.

      SECOND best comment ever. Thank you too.

    Somewhere I read there were only 38,000 hi-cap mags registered in CT, while there are an estimated 2.5 million of them in the state.

    And yet again we have unconstitutional law. Constitutional Law proscribes what we cannot do–never what we must do.

    “A reopened registration would help many who failed to come forward out of ignorance.” – I would suggest there is no ignorance involved here. Those that are smart enough to arm themselves aren’t ready to give in. Maybe this is why they armed themselves in the first place. Heaven help the politician that tries to pull a stunt like this in Texas.

  • Bill Murry

    Ya don’t think you would get more then a few thousand who forgot to register. Letters would mean shit. It would just be a scare tactic. That and filtering through lists to see who bought firearms and who registered. The most a cop can do is do a knock and talk and asked about the weapon. Their would be no probable cause to search a house.

    • Ronald G Miner Jr

      If they can send letters to people who failed to register it means they already know who has these weapons which is a direct violation of the law concerning the destruction of the paperwork required when purchasing them. If they send out letters those who received them should immediately file a lawsuit and bring criminal charges against whoever is in charge of doing the background checks in CT. NO ONE should know who has what….period.

      • Bill Murry

        Not familiar with CT law in that regard. Just saying having proof someone bought a legal item at some point and time and now that its illegal to possess said item now does not give them any basis to search, detain or other wise remotely question you about it.

        All you have to say is that you no longer possess it/sold it/ gave it away/ destroyed it.

        Cop comes to your door.

        Sorry officer I crushed that evil device years ago.

        • Ronald G Miner Jr

          Again, you are naive to think they won’t insist on a search. If they are willing to pass an illegal law making civilian ownership of firearms illegal, they damn sure are willing to trample your constitutional right to unlawful search and seizure..

  • LorieK

    This reminds me of when the criminals lined up to register guns…sort of

  • gato felix

    I have been reading so many stories this past few month’s of police doing act’s on the public that are outright criminal, on the elderly, on people with mental issues, you all don’t think for one goddam minute this isn’t going to worsen the moment guns are “legally” confiscated?

  • gato felix

    I’ve often wondered when is Hollywood doing a movie on the Christian holocaust in russia, could it be because, na it couldn’t be!!!

    • heroay

      It will happen, when the People restore the Republic, and remove all these fags owning everything, all paid with colored toilet paper ‘money’ they print at will.

  • Ronald G Miner Jr

    Your “law” is illegal…that would explain why people are not registering their guns…they do not have to…

  • Ronald G Miner Jr

    And when they come to confiscate that one weapon and find many more do you think they will “allow” you to keep any of them? The entire purpose of registration is so they know where to go to take them from you. Registration serves no other purpose…period..

    • Bill Murry

      who says they will take the other ones. They will have no right to search the rest of your house or to open a safe to look for more weapons.

      • Ronald G Miner Jr

        You’re a trusting, naive fool if you think they won’t search..legally or not…Once they take them you will have no recourse

  • Ronald G Miner Jr

    Not complying with the unconstitutional laws..and preparing for the worst…it’s coming..

  • Bill Murry

    Some how I don’t think the cops registered their weapons.

  • Bill Murry

    Most of the Agents at my Station have thought about what we would do if asked to go to Citizens house to confiscate their weapons.

    Most reports would read.

    I knocked no one answered.

    Mr. Smith state he sold the weapon on XXX to Made up names.

    Hopeful other LEO’s have the same state of mind in other parts of the country.

  • Rex

    The powers the be can’t even keep drugs (and even guns in at least one instance) out of jails, how they think they are going to control the rest of the country is beyond me.

  • NJHuguenot

    Be patient.

    Don’t remember mentioning GOD in any of my posts. Plus Hell is where all the Booze, Gambling and strippers will be.

    If your really in Arizona I want to buy you a drink because you are one messed up dude that needs to mellow out.

  • Bill Murry

    Plus most of us have multiple weapons that would fall into those “Assault weapon”. Hell I buy most of my weapons off backpage. No background check required in AZ.

  • heroay

    X-cuse, the toll is estimated rather at 66 REAL Millions. Whether they all were Christians or not, even, atheists, doesn’t matter. That massacre won’t happen in these United States, with 146 Million armed and very pixxed Americans, knowledgeable of what these bolshevik jews from New York did after 1917. Come and GET IT!

  • heroay

    Truth is, Hitler did not confiscate arms from Germans, only from the ‘jews’ who had squatted Germany. And he had made a deal with the ashkenazi ‘jew’ Rothschilds, to round up these and send to squat and rapine Palestine. And did. The holo is a proven HOAX.

    If it hurts, change coat. Or socks. A true American stands for America, not for any other puny outpost of the ashkenazi Rothschilds, of which am sure you won’t bother to instruct real Americans to take their opinions to, for fear they will find what these treacherous leeches do to disarmed Palestinians, like the ashkenazi bolsheviks did to Russians. It won’t happen in this country. Come and GET IT!

    Big fat lie. What the hell good would it be (from the Government viewpoint) if it DIDN’T have that information?
