The war over the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment has just gotten uglier and it is taking place uniquely in one of the nation’s original founding 13 colonies that ratified the American Bill of Rights. Connecticut is now front and center in this gun control battle based upon a stale law which mandates all “assault rifles” and “high capacity” magazines be banned. It also is “requiring all in circulation to be registered with the state,” according to Story Leak.
Branford Police Officer Joseph Peterson has allegedly openly defended the door-to-door gun confiscation and stated, ‘I cannot wait to get the order to kick your door in," reported Story Leak. Sounds like Nazi storm trooper behavior, but it apparently goes hand in hand with the pronouncement by the state police who are also now threatening to go door to door to confiscate those legal firearms.
The residents of Connecticut as well as the nation probably thought that notorious British practice of confiscation of weapons had been dealt with 238 years ago with the American Revolution. Now the confiscating of weapons which has been utilized by communist and socialist regimes in Russia, China and Nazi Germany has come to the doorstep of Connecticut residents.
There are some patriotic heroes in Connecticut, who like the nation’s founding forefathers are not willing to neither witness nor permit the undoing of those basic American constitutional rights that are held dear. John Cinque, who is a firefighter and navy veteran, is one of those gun rights heroes in the state.
He has appeared in a video that went viral nationally which shows him telling state officials that he would not comply with the unconstitutional gun registration law. It was after his remarkable testimony that he was contacted by a local town police officer and told Cinque, on his Facebook page, that “law enforcement were not obligated to defy unconstitutional laws and that he would follow any order given,” reported Story Leak.
