What Could be Staying the Hands of Connecticut Authorities

UPDATE: Yep. It’s a parody site. It would have been interesting had it been true.

I have no way of knowing whether this is credible or not, but this article suggests that the reason Connecticut isn’t going through their registry record of sales to round up illegal “assault weapons” is because if they did so, they’d have to round up most of their cops.

With in hours a print off of all sworn Law Enforcement officers in the state was obtained. Comparisons of the list of gun owners who failed to comply with registration requirements and sworn LEOs showed a startling figure. Just over 68% of Connecticut cops had failed to register firearms according to the new law.

Of course, if this is true, it means they are running the numbers and thinking about door-to-door confiscation. But I thought the very idea of that made us paranoid whack jobs? These guys really have no idea what kind of fire they are playing with.

UPDATE: Someone in the comments thinks it’s parody. I’ve never heard of this site before, so it’s possible it’s a parody.

  1. This should not have been posted here!

    “This site is a satire of the current state of Law Enforcement, Fire Fighting and Emergency Medical work. Stories posted here are not real and you should not assume them to have any basis in any real fact. More …”

  2. I will take the credit for passing this bad info to Sebastian.

    Let the flogging begin.

    1. Eh… I’m still the one who published it. I should have checked in the morning, rather than when I was tired right before bed.

  3. There’s probably still a kernel of truth there.

    What if it comes to light that cops that were in violation of the law were allowed to “scratch each others blue backs” and quiet insert backdated registration records for their illegally held arms? Or if their brothers and sisters simply dropped those “potential illegal ‘assault weapon'” notices their trolling through in building that list into the circular file?

    I would not be surprised if there wasn’t some truth even in parody. What I think a lot of us are concerned about is CT actually acting with force. Not even NY and CA did that and it would be unprecedented in the modern era against people who aren’t prohibited persons. Sad that it has to be Connecticut. I’m sure the historical irony and parallel if CT were to send police out to disarm law-abiding of arms would be lost on very few. Anyone care to wager on, if the first armed SWAT team “make an example” raid occurs, on its proximity to Lexington on Concord?

    And that is the truly terrifying part. That the shots fired that will destroy the Republic occur in the same place that lead to its creation. History, it seems, does have a circular aspect to it.

    1. Matt, you do know that the Battles of Lexington and Concord took place in Massachusetts, not Connecticut, right? Sure, Connecticut shares a border with Massachusetts, but Lexington and Concord are much closer to Boston than any town in Connecticut. I agree with the rest of what you said though. If numerous SWAT team raids on the homes of otherwise law-abiding Connecticut gun owners start happening, resulting in deaths, or armed standoffs, this will result in the eventual destruction of our Republic.

  4. Parody or not, it’s very likely quite accurate. I have no doubt whatsoever that in my jurisdiction, had a similar law passed, the local law enforcement would simply ignore it. And they would be one of the ones not in compliance.

    Fake but accurate . . .
