Gun Control in Connecticut Is a Bonanza for Gun Sellers Outside of Connecticut.

Written by Gary North on April 4, 2013

The state of Connecticut has tightened gun controls. There will be background checks. No more large magazines for ammo. Assault weapons are banned.

This sends a message to the world outside of New York, Illinois, Connecticut, and California: buy while you still can.

Buy at gun shows.

Pay a little more. Get off your duff.

Is gun control coming? No. Then why buy? Because newcomers think gun control is coming. Prices will go up. The mania will spread. This is not a bubble market. This is the new normal.

The liberals want gun control. They are not going to get it in heartland America.

What they are getting is the opposite of what they say they want: a new dedication to buy guns and ammo is spreading like a prairie fire across the nation. People who have sat on the sidelines for 20 years are buying. “I had better not wait any longer. I had better get some cash out of the ATM, go to a gun show, and buy.”

Currency talks. Currency yells. Currency leave no traces.

  1. I don't understand what part of "Shall not be infringed" the liberals do not understand. There are no gun control laws that accomplish what they say the laws will do nor do they control crime as the liberals say it will. Also there is not one"gun control law" that is not an infringement on the 2nd Amendment, period.. Gun control laws do not control crime, just the law abiding citizens that try to obey laws that politicians who are supposed to represnet their constituants keep on passing, telling us this is for our own good. These stupid laws that we have and we continue to accept from our smarter than you are policitians continue to erode the Constitution " for our benefit" and it has got to stop. Why then too is the Dept. of Homeland Secutiory buying such large amounts of guns and ammo and those special vehicles we keep on hearing about? Is this Obama's private Army he has told us about?

    All of the liberals are an absolute embarrassment to this USA for their Stupidity and they likewise, believe that everyone is automatically as stupid as they are. Thank goodness, not everyone is. This country is in serious trouble because of all of the LIES, RHETORIC they have been passing around but not EVERYONE IS STUPID! The people that have not lost their Common Sense, Brains, Courage for the TRUTH need to speak up and do not continue being the SHEEP. We cannot afford to have a nation of sheep and let the stupid LIBERALS DESTROY.

  3. Liberals are victims of reality

  4. Bill McCroskey says:

    I thought federal laws took precedent over state laws if there was a conflict 0r disagreement (see a multitude of federal interventionism) in the last 100 year or so. I assume the NRA will challenge this in court ?

  5. Here is a quote you might like to use ; " How fortunate for governments that people they administer don't think."
    Adolph Hitler

  6. Texas Chris says:

    Federal laws only have supremacy if they are constitutional. This implies a state power to determine constitutionality, which was reinforced by Jefferson's "Principles of '98", the Kentucky Resolution.

  7. These libs are nuts they have no brains Wen we vote we need to make sure we never vote for libs in are goverment again or any office they are to stupid I no I will never vote for libs Demacraps or Rinos

  8. Liberalism always progresses in the same way: First, they take your rights. Second, they take your property. Then, they take your life. If it progresses very quickly, sometimes the second step is combined with the third.

  9. Jackspraat says:

    wonder if all the sheriffs in conn. and co. of all the counties are gonna play ball, they don't have to if they don't understand why they would be arresting folks and breaking into their houses. They have more power in their counties than both the governor or the POTUS.

  10. ProgressicesRCancer says:

    Truedat! In my 65 years I never owned a gun until Obama and his minions started their all-out attack on the 2nd Amendment. I now own six of various types for various uses, have a CHL and practice at the range several times a month.

  11. James Bernard says:

    That's right!

  12. Jackspraat says:

    Only if they can afford it, we need more members paying dues, NRA is the only gun club that has never hurt or killed or maimed anyone intentionally, unlike the progressive/liberal child shooting idiots of recency. Their reputation is stellar. I am proud to be a member, Fienstien doesn't qualify, or other NRA degraders that have no idea what they are talking about. This idiot they interviewed from conn. said that bullets come with clips and magazines. She probably thought you read the magazines. Just misinformation, low information, educated idiots.

    Finally had a few minutes to do basic research on our discussion of yesterday regarding State, county/parish, city abilities to limit gun ownership.

    Could you imagine 007 without his trademark Walther PPK?

  15. Raymond Rogers says:

    To Profitup10; Thank you for the basic research.

  16. Here's a question for youse folks:

    It is said that a poll tax is illegal because you cannot tax that which is a "right".

    If purchasing a weapon is a "right" how can it be taxed? (e.g. sales tax)


  17. You pretend that owning a firearm is not a right. Progressives pretend all sorts of things what's another item?

  18. I would not be remotely surprised if the US Congress passes some sort of Gun control this year. We're basically one mass shooting away from it. I think after the Elections of 2014 we can count on being shafted by the lame duck Congress. Probably….

    I am also convinced that for the next year a lot of people are going to be beating the bushes looking for evidence of Democratic Party voter fraud and then in November of 2014 they are going to crawl the polls. I think a little amateur detective work is going to catch a lot of people cheating at the polls. It's going to go viral.

    I think that the GOP had best prepare for this, at the State level. I think the gang in Washington DC like the Dems winning because "they can do business with them". "TEA Partyers" are different.

    I am considering helping a Rep or two by manning the phones. I have never done this before but I am seething with rage over this pile on by the Democrats. I don't want to hurt anything but someone's feelings on election day.

    I want to do my part to make the Democrats cry. I have not hated them as a party this much since 1994.

  19. Aw shucks, what part of "A well-regulated militia. . ." don't people understand? All rough drafts of the 2A show they were talking about people being armed in the context of being part of a militia force.

  20. If one were going into conspiracy mode it would be that those who propose some sort of gun control legislation are in cahoots with the gun-sellers lobby. All they have do is come up with some sort of weak gun-control bill, it won't get passed but it'll stir the pot up to the point where they'll rake in enough money to put another one of their kids through college for a few months work.

  21. Hi Bill: In reply to your comment see the 10th Amendment, that the States will retain those rights not given to the federal govnmt.

  22. take the red pill and wake up. Repugs are no different the Demopukes. Stop playing their game. Do not comply!

  23. that Militia force is an unorganized Mlitia until such time as the State requires their activation or a call to Arm's. That is the true meaning of the Militia clause there. Do some research into the arguments about just how this Amendment would be both enacted and the wording of such, it has the continuation of "Being necessary to the security of the State". It means as George Washington famously wrote "The people shall be armed with and have access to the same armament that is in general use of any standing Army.

  24. No Federal does not trump State laws read the 10th Amendment for the powers reservation part.

  25. Which makes the very firearms the gun-grabbers are going after the specifically protected ones.

  26. The problem is, an embarrassment to whom? Outside the US, what we call liberalism is the norm, and they think our liberals are the only ones thinking straight. It's a scary world out there.

    I believe that pointing his hand like a gun just wouldn't have the same effect.

    Wow! You need to go back and slap your history teachers.

    “I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials.”
    — George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on
    Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788

    The militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves, … all men capable of bearing arms;…”
    — “Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic”, 1788 (either Richard Henry Lee or Melancton Smith).

    “Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom? Congress shall have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American … The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the People.”
    — Tench Coxe, 1788.
