The Founding Fathers are surely rolling in their graves.

Hatford, CT (Governor’s Office) – “I have been clear for weeks that a ban on the possession and sale of high capacity magazines is an important part of our effort to prevent gun violence – simply banning their sale moving forward would not be an effective solution.”

I’ll bet you a dozen donuts that Connecticut’s Governor won’t personally take the lead in enforcing any confiscation measures.

Hopefully there will be a dearth of oathbreakers willing to risk their lives – and those of their families – to do so on Dannel’s behalf.

  1. In response to the submission of my request to not vote for new gun laws, gun bans, magazine bans & range restrictions, here is the reply I received from US Senator Durbin today.

    I openly question the accuracy of his % figures and that he has the support of the Illinois law enforcement community. It make me wonder if he is even aware that the policies & practices of Chicago is NOT representative of all of Illinois.

    “Dear Mr Harrison,

    Thank you for your message about a federal ban on assault weapons. I appreciate knowing your thoughts about this issue.

    I am not opposed to the possession of guns. Americans are entitled to own and use guns responsibly and we must honor and respect the right to bear arms set forth in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    I stand with the Illinois law enforcement community in supporting the assault weapons ban. The 1994 federal assault weapons ban expired on September 13, 2004. For 10 years, the ban was an effective law enforcement tool that dramatically reduced the number of crimes committed with assault weapons. In 1993, assault weapons accounted for more than eight percent of all guns used in crimes. In 1995, the first year of the ban, assault weapons accounted for just under four percent of guns used criminally and by 2002, this percentage had dropped even further, to slightly over one percent. While the ban did not totally eliminate the illegal use of assault weapons, it was an important measure that increased public safety without infringing on the rights of average gun owners.

    Military-style assault weapons are designed for one thing—firing a large number of bullets in a short amount of time. These firearms were the types of weapons used in the senseless acts of violence recently committed at Sandy Hook Elementary School and the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Following these tragic events, I met with law enforcement leaders in Illinois and what I heard was that we must take steps to limit military-style assault weapons and magazines to reduce the scale of gun violence and help keep our communities safe.

    I will continue to respect gun owner’s Second Amendment rights while standing with law enforcement officers in the effort to help protect our communities from the violent crimes committed with assault weapons. Although we may disagree on this issue, I will keep your thoughts in mind as the Senate considers measures to prevent gun violence.

  2. I got the same email from Durbin, would love to get him and Kirk out of office since they have decided to represent the president instead of the people who elect them.

    1. You guys are lucky. The staff member tried to argue with me about owning an AR. I had to remind her that they were all employed by me the tax payer. She shut up. Also we have to remember that Durbin could care less about Down State Illinois. He thinks he has it made being where he’s at in the Senate. We need to kick him out during the mid-terms. As to Kirk, he just needs to be reminded that gun owners can cause him grif. I think it’s time to remind Mitch McConnell that Kirk is a weak link, that is if Mitch McConnell can be trusted.

  3. Many gun owners voted for Kirk. Heck, a certain lobbyist admitted openly that he did and urged others to do do also. Some some say openly they will do so again.

    The man introduces a rifle ban, turns around and says that taxpayers should pay to send fully auto AKs to Libyans and had (maybe still has) the support of the NRA Lobbyist and other gun owners?!

    Such a good “deal”. Lets just cast more votes for gun grabbers and continue wondering why things are the way they are. Yeah that will fix everything.
