SHELL SHOCKED - DISARMAMENT - TYRANTS - TREASON
As reported by the Associated Press:
"The package also creates what lawmakers said is the nation's first statewide dangerous weapon offender registry, creates a new "ammunition eligibility certificate," imposes immediate universal background checks for all firearms sales, and extends the state's assault weapons ban to 100 new types of firearms and requires that a weapon have only one of several features in order to be banned."The message is clear.
Lawmakers in Hartford think so little of law-abiding gun owners that they're prepared to outlaw your guns, register you as if you were a sex offender, and ration your right to purchase ammunition -- that is if they deem you "worthy enough" to buy any.
Worse, this "deal" was made possible, in part, thanks to anti-gun Republican House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero, Jr. and Republican Senator John McKinney, who refused to stand up for gun owners.
Instead, they've provided their blessings to the gun-grabbing agendas of billionaire-playboy Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Governor Dannel Malloy.
In America in particular, WE THE PEOPLE are antecedent to and the source of each and every government, and always remain superior to all of them. As the Declaration of Independence explains, under “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”, and “to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”. So “Governments” are not somehow self-generated and autonomous, but rather are the creations of “the governed”, which may exercise only such “just powers” as “the governed” deign to concede to them. Moreover, “Governments” can assert no claim to permanency, either in whole or in part. Rather, they are utterly dependent upon “the consent of the governed” for their continued existences and authority. For, “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of the[ ] ends [for which it was instituted], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness”. Self-evidently, if “the People”—by “Right”—may “alter or * * * abolish” “any Form of Government” when they find its actions fundamentally “destructive”, and may “institute new Government” as they see fit, and the rogue officialdom within the original “Form of Government” is entitled to no say whatsoever in this process, then the authority of “the People” cannot possibly derive from the “Form of Government” then extant, let alone from the as-yet-nonexistent “Form of Government” to be erected in its place, but instead must inhere in “the People” themselves, as a consequence of “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”. That is, under the aegis of those “Laws” “the People” alone are the sovereigns, the “Form of Government” their creation, and public officials within that “Form of Government” subjects who necessarily owe allegiance to “the People”.
We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.
