Conn. police refuse to enforce new gun laws

A showdown is developing between a sizable number of Connecticut state police officers and the politicians who passed into law highly restrictive gun control, gun bans, and bans on high capacity magazines.

Gun rights legal expert and activist David Hardy reported Friday that 250 law enforcement officers in Connecticut have signed an open letter stating that they will not enforce the new anti-gun and magazine laws, which they consider to be a violation of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

A major news story on these developments is due to be published soon, but Hardy received an advanced notice via email from Tyler Jackson, the head of the Connecticut Peace Officers Association, the organization that sent the open letter…

…If such a thing can happen in a deeply blue state in New England, what would law enforcement encounter if they attempted such an ill-fated attack on Constitutionally-protected rights in Texas, Wyoming, South Carolina, Utah, or Kentucky?

This is something that the political powers that be in government and law enforcement — and in the Courts — should think long and hard about before acting in such a knee-jerk fashion as Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, and Massachusetts have done.

…Cinque also told Visconti his encounter with pro-gun control GOP lawmakers has caused him to distrust Republicans as well as Democrats.

According to Cinque, state Rep. David Yaccarino, a Republican, told him the Second Amendment was put in place to let the colonists attack British troops.

“I’m a Republican,” Cinque said. “But I don’t trust the Republicans either, at the state or the federal level.”

“This whole Progressive movement has bitten everyone, and that’s what it comes down to,” he added.

Visconti said he decided to run even as Gov. Malloy was signing the new gun control bill into law.

“I got into the race April 4th, as the governor was signing the bill, because for me, it was the last straw,” he said.
