I copied this posting from another Ct fishing website. I'm handicapped living on a fixed income with no extra money to spare. I just PayPaled a donation for $100.00. We can't let unlawful legislation strip our constitutional rights away from us and future generations. Some how or another next month I will find some more money to send, this battle won't be cheap.



Dear Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen Members:

We have joined forces with CCDL, the NRA and other gun owner and sportsmen groups that are working together in Connecticut to fund a significant Second Amendment legal challenge to Connecticut’s new firearms law. Our legal team is assembled, and it includes preeminent Second Amendment and Constitutional lawyers with national reputations, significant trial as well as U.S. Supreme Court experience, and many U.S. Supreme Court victories under their belts. We want you to know that our legal team is moving swiftly and that it understands the urgency of seeking legal vindication of our rights. That said, it would be unwise to rush to court without fully understanding the law and crafting the strongest legal challenge possible. This takes time, which is the reason why we are not rushing to court to file the lawsuit this week. Please be aware that other lawsuits may be filed before ours in the coming days by individuals and groups who have gone in a different direction. These lawsuits are not part of our legal effort and, in some cases despite best intentions, may be actually be harmful to members’ interests by creating unfavorable legal precedents. We are calling on all members to contribute financially to the legal challenge that we are mounting. Checks should be directed to CCDL at P.O. Box 642, Groton, Connecticut 06340. We will be back in touch with you soon to let you know of other ways in which you can be helpful.

- Bob Crook

Wow! That's one hell of a first post. If that's the kind of mindless drivel that he's going to keep posting, may it be his last.

My site name is Bass Ackwards, no need to be insulting on your first post because I differ from you. What happened in Newtown was done by a mad man who killed his mother and took her guns. This "law" that was rushed threw and done illegally could not and will not stop a crazy person from doing another horendous act, it will only affect law abiding citizens.

Now how about posting something to do with fishing, this is after all a fishing website. :th:

Hey BA,

 

Right to bear arms? When it was enacted they were  playing with muzzle loaders. Do any of you think that it was anticipated that 30 round semi auto (or with the shear pin filed) fully automatics would be part of any screwballs arsenal. I enjoy target shooting, have many friends who do skeet and trap and none are afraid of a BG check. What’s next, perhaps a “fifty” mounted on some AH’s Jeep or flame thrower, how does an anti tank launcher sound to Ya’all? Your great, great, great grand pappy had no idea about how nuts it would become, and of course used their long guns and pistols for all the right reasons.

When the Constitution and all the ammendments were written by our forfathers, "We The People" had the exact same guns as the military, exactly the same. The writers of the constitution didn't know the types of weapons the future would bring. They were smart enough to know, after fighting the British, that "We The People" rights to firearms should not be infringed. That's why it's at the top of the list, just below freedom of the press.
