    They get caught, they can be charged with felony possession; not too smart. If convicted no more guns for them to play with, no voting, no commercial licenses, no running for some public offices, etc.

    Better to work to change the laws as opposed to rolling the dice. "God bless those gun owners!"

    I have a question for you , but let me premise........we have the largest prison system in the world. We have more people in prison per capita of any other country in the world as well. Our society has been steered into a culture called Legalism. That basically translates into a code or law or regulation about EVERYTHING. So, when do we as a society accept Law as the new tyrant?
    When is law too much law?

    When the people decide there is too much law. Right now a majority are happy with the current system.

    If they do try and register them, as many did, but are not in compliance with the timing then they will effectively be confiscated. Registration leads to confiscation.

    The State of Connecticut says that all citizens must register rifles and high capacity magazines, or be charged will a felony. As many as 100,000 people could face heavily armed police smashing down their doors and be charged with a felony.

    The legislature of CT says that a registration is needed so they can know where the guns are. Yet at the same time, they are sending threatening letters to gun owners. So they already have records of who has purchased certain guns. The fact is, that the CT legislature fully intends to confiscate hundreds of thousands of firearms anyway. The registration process will simply make it easier to confiscate, because you acknowledge that you still own a firearm that the state already suspects that you own.

    CT State Police Spokesman Lt. Vance says that state police would comply with an order from the state to conduct door to door gun confiscations.

    One day it is legal, the next it is not by legislative fiat, then confiscated. That is how easily your rights will disappear.

    Lets be honest with each other; when enough people get fed up, you'll get change and if as you maintain, the numbers are increasing with those fed up, you'll get the change your looking for. The people ultimately control the government, not the other way around regardless of what they'd like you to think.

    That is wrong. The law should only apply to those who purchase new firearms, and even then it is not constitutional. These people have a constitutional right to their private firearms.

    What should be isn't. Until the law is either changed or ruled on by SCOTUS that's the way it is. Otherwise you roll the dice; if you don't get caught, good for you, if you do, you'll be charged with a felony, even if you use the weapon in self-defense.

    In Indiana, all you have to do is produce a receipt. You have a piece of paper that says you own the gun, shoot and kill an armed intruder, no problem for you. Castle Doctrine stands.

    Would you be willing to take that risk by using that defense?

    Talked to one of the police because an old man that had passed away had an illegal sawed off shotgun that we turned in so I asked him what would have happened if he had used it on an intruder. He said nothing, they give a lot of leeway in cases like that.

    Oh the intruder is going to get nailed by the police if he isn't killed in the process; many police departments will not give you a break just because you used a gun that is supposed to be registered in self-defense. In Ct, you'll still have to pay the price.

    Only in lib States. Otherwise it is apparent to most everyone else with any common sense that the intruder is at fault.

    BTW, police only clean up after the damage is done.

    do you realize how many intruders actually get caught after the fact?
    Allow me to interpret your stance....it's better for the criminal if he doesn't have to face a gun when he breaks into a home. The occupants are NOT allowed to defend their lives with a gun, even if the intruder has one.....right? We are only required to allow them to rape our women and rob our homes, and murder us by the numbers while begging for our lives. Right?

    wrong.................

    you may think your survival relies upon the kindness of criminals, if so, good luck with begging.

    Jury nullification of the law would be a solution. Course if would take a case to come to court and then a jury with balls.......

    Hello??? You don't get it do you??? Keep your assault weapon, just register it with the state if that's the law. That way your still legal. How tough can that be?

    Connecticut is one of those states that is experiencing civil disobedience..............
    I get what you are stating, and it is a stupid position. Registration leads to confiscation. Here in Indiana, we can shoot cops who enter a domicile without proper papers.
    At least here in Indiana, we can buy used firearms without having to process through the government.
    Without law, if I intend to buy a gun, I run the numbers through my local sheriff to make sure it isn't stolen or was used in a crime, other than that, I am under no obligation to register (*)(*)(*)(*) with them. It isn't because of no stinking laws, it is because I don't buy trouble or borrow it.
    We have another on this forum that believes the California Constitution is the Law of the land...is that the same as Connecticut?

    Registration leads to confiscation? Has there every been any confiscation of guns (except in criminal, mental illness cases) from people that were legally owned? I'm not aware of that happening.

    Ok so you live in Indiana and can shoot cops if they enter your home; whoopie do. And you can purchase guns without having to process through the gov't. Your state is one of the reasons criminals can access guns and transport them over state lines and either sell them or use them to commit crimes. But I'm sure you could care less about that since it doesn't impact you.

    Stinking laws?? Remember that if god forbid, someone kills a family member or one of your friends using an illegally purchased gun.

    Yes, California. One day they are legal and because they have registration, the next day, by government fiat, they are illegal and have been confiscated "because they were already registered as legal". CT is headed in that direction.
