    Lets just hope enough citizens will stand up and make a statement... either vote them out or leave. Personally I think they should vote them out. Leaving will just be a cowardly move. However, if the citizens leave, and populous drops, then that makes a statement.

    If you want to make a statement (boycott), hit em in the pocketbook. By leaving the state, which many will, they are actually cutting the tax base for these greedy effin politicians.
    I say, if ya can't vote/recall em out then move to a free state and organize. Come Hell or high water these gun/people controlling fascists will fall!!!

    From the comments following the article, I'd say the legislature there in Connecticut is going to be looking for new jobs shortly. And, rightly so!!

    I hope there are more recalls or flat out politicians losing their jobs during their next elections. This 'feel good" knee jerk emotional legislation does nothing to prevent crime whatsoever. Follow the laws on the books, or the voters will find representatives who will....

    I know what has to be done but I dare not say it due to the indoctrinated people.

    I don't see that as the best move. Doing so will simply induce more of the social progressive tyrannic's to fill the void left by those leaving. Much better that they rally with the TEA and do what folks in Colorado did -- recall the bastards who begin treading on 2nd Amendment Rights. Send them packing like Morse and Giron... who, I will guarantee you, would never have thought what happened would. :partyman:

    PTR Arms is packing up to leave the state. I am a proud owner now of 2 of their rifles and in a few days a 7.62 x 39 pistol built on their receiver and barrel. Their phone number ends in 1776

    Support them!

    Freedom of speech, but you can be shot and put in jail for it?

    They are not doing it to prevent crime, they are doing it because they hate guns....and the people that own them.

    I like the Toys for Totalitarians campaign that Mike Vanderboegh is running. Mailing magazines to politicians and news media members is great. I really like the accompanying letters despite errors in them.

    LOL - A friend was on the board for a local range where I used to live - we ran a "magazine seeding" campaign where range members would seed any doctor's / dentist's / optometrist's office they went to with gun magazines (the reading kind) that they were done with. My wife worked at UCD med center so one night when she was working we took hundreds and distributed them in the doctor's waiting rooms throughout the hospital. Just a little educational reading for the masses.

    It's happening because eternal vigilance is the price for freedom and Cali and Conn citizens sat on their arses and did little to stop it

    Drew, that sounds like a great idea, anyone can do it, too. I have some old beater AR15 mags that will work!

    Yep. Here would be a great starting place for those people to start reading ....http://www.northwestfirearms.com/le...regon-capitol-january-19th-6.html#post1027494

    "I would have thought that someone who lobbied so hard for CHL would have a clearer picture of how those laws were introduced, maintained, and have relatively been unchanging as of late. You made blatant, false statements regarding protests that you said "THEY SCARED THE MORONS THAT WRITE AND VOTE FOR LAWS now firearms are banned from the capital (unless you have a CHL)" when in reality it was illegal without a CHL well before the rallies of late. If you allow for exception you give into the notion that "they" have authority to regulate what is and is not permissible regardless of legality. Just because it is not the norm for a man to walk down the street with an AR15 does not mean that he intends to do harm, in fact I would wager more people walk down the street with an AR15 intending not to do harm than vice verse. If you with to give up a right just for more "bargaining power" you are no better than those that give up "liberties for false sense of security." Every day it is becoming more frequent that people are treated as guilty until proven innocent. People are told not asked to lay down liberties in the sense of "needing to do SOMETHING" when in reality the somethings do little to nothing. The political elite lie and refuse to listen to their constituents. No, but again with all the but the scraps of any respect I can muster, the time for talk is over. The time for negotiation is over. You can't negotiate with those that don't listen. The time for giving up freedoms is over, no matter how many lives it is intended to save. My freedoms are worth more than your dead. My freedoms are worth more than scared politicians that are worried about functions that cause "no incidence." "

    Awesome!

    The Olympia rally last year featured thousands of open carriers. I open packed both a PTR 91 and an AR 15. Looks like they got the message, at least for that year

    That's the beauty of it. I'm trying to find some that I have to send or find some POS mags for less than $5 for the purpose. There's too many of these swine, I'm on budget and need to maximize my funds. If those politicians refuse to acknowledge the Constitution, they need to know people are watching and some of us won't give up. When I first read about this, I saw civil disobedience that would make Thoreau proud.
