Gun Rights Advocate Martha Dean Enters Governor’s Race

 

 

 

” Gun rights supporter Martha Dean shook up the Republican primary for governor Tuesday, unexpectedly announcing she was entering the crowded field.

  A former two-time statewide candidate, Dean has been working recently with fellow attorneys who are representing gun owners in their battle against the state’s new gun laws.

  The word about Dean initially trickled out from the pro-gun Connecticut Citizens Defense League, which released the news on the group’s blog. Dean confirmed later that she is running, but she declined to answer any questions about her strategy or the campaign. She said she will not conduct any interviews until speaking Tuesday at a time and place that will be announced in the coming days.

  Dean’s entrance would be late, particularly for fundraising, because she would need 2,500 contributors at $100 each to qualify for the public financing matching funds for gubernatorial candidates. Political operatives say that raising that amount of money — particularly with just two months before the convention — is much more difficult than it appears.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Veteran Threatened With Arrest For Questioning Gun Ban

 

” In Obama’s Kingdom, any veteran who dares to verbally question an elite politician on gun control legislation is now considered a criminal and will face arrest and possible imprisonment. This month, U.S. Navy veteran Geoff Ross merely picked up his phone (so hostile, I know) and called Connecticut Governor Daniel P. Malloy’s office with a few questions about the state’s new ban on large capacity ammunition magazines and so-called “assault” weapons.

Ross asked Malloy’s office questions such as: “Do the Governor and his staff own guns themselves?” and “Does the Governor’s office understand the reason behind the 2nd Amendment?” To these perfectly rational and peaceful questions, the Governor’s aids replied that it was: “none of his damn business.” When Ross was persistent and kept calling, Malloy’s aids hung up on him FIVE TIMES and ultimately an aid named Melissa threatened him by saying that she would send the police after him if he did not stop speaking out.

 

 

 

 

 

Conn. Gov. Daniel Malloy: Public Safety Trumps Loss Of Gun Manufacturers

” Connecticut Gov. Daniel P. Malloy, who on Thursday signed some of the nation’s most sweeping new gun-control laws, brushed aside concerns on Sunday that the Second Amendment crackdown could drive several longtime arms manufacturers from his state.

“We’ve decided that public safety trumps all of that,” Mr. Malloy, a 57-year-old Democrat, told CNN. “I hope they stay and manufacture products that can legally be sold. But if they leave, that will be a decision they make. We’re not making them leave.” “

  As an aside it appears that the state of New York has bribed Remington to stay in it’s long – time home in the upstate town of Ilion so we doubt they will demonstrate the intestinal fortitude to take their jobs where they are welcome and tell Andy Cuomo to pound sand .

Connecticut’s New Gun Law Is Selling an Awful Lot of Guns

 

 

” Today, Connecticut lawmakers plan to vote on possible new gun control laws that could be some of the toughest in the country.

This was a big concern for gun owners, and thousands of them rushed to gun stores to stock up on guns and ammunition that could soon be illegal.”

 

 

 

Colt May Leave Connecticut Due to New State Gun Laws

 

 

 

 

” … President and CEO Dennis Veilleux said the pro-gun control climate that has taken hold in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre and other firearm attacks has left him feeling unwelcome in the state his company has called home for 175 years. Proposed laws being debated by the Legislature and pushed by Gov. Dannel Malloy include a new gun offender registry, an expanded assault weapons ban, ammunition restrictions and a ban on bulk purchases of handguns. Veilleux said those measures have put Colt and its nearly 700 employees in the cross hairs. “

A look at effects in states and provinces in the path of the storm sweeping across the Northeast and southern Canada:

 

CONNECTICUT

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy imposed a travel ban Friday on the state’s highways and deployed National Guard troops around the state for rescues or other emergencies.

A coastal flood warning was posted for southern Fairfield County, saying Friday evening’s high tide could be 3 to 5 feet higher than normal in western Long Island Sound.

The state’s two biggest utilities planned for the possibility that up to 30 percent of their customers _ more than 400,000 homes and businesses _ would lose power. As of early Saturday, more than 35,000 had no service.

Nonessential state workers were ordered to stay home Friday. Schools, colleges and state courthouses were also closed. All flights after 1:30 p.m. at Bradley Airport near Hartford were canceled. Connecticut Transit ceased all bus service by 6 p.m. Friday.

Some gas stations ran out of fuel Thursday night during the rush to prepare for the storm.
