Come and get them. Spartan King Leonidas I's response to the Persians request that they throw down their arms at Battle of Thermopylae.
It is a rallying cry for gun owners. Unfortunately, it has come time to put up or shut up in Connecticut.
What's going on? Well, last year Connecticut banned "Assault Weapons" and all magazines that hold over 10 rounds. They don't really know what an Assault Weapon is, but anyway that's not the point of this post.
The CT Government gave gun owners, who lawfully purchased and registered their guns (This is an important point, because this law only applies to legal gun owners. Illegal gun owners wouldn't register their guns... why would they? They are illegal!!!), until January 1st to register their now illegal guns and magazines. Many people sent in their registrations, but they didn't arrive at the post office until after January 1st, so they were not postmarked until after the deadline. So, the Governor of Connecticut, Dannel Malloy, a Democrat, without the consent or approval, read illegally, taking a cue from the President, simply said that gun owners had until the 4th of January.
This, of course, was meaningless to many gun owners, because only the State knew they were not in compliance with the law. The owner received no notice that they were late.
Now the fit starts to hit the shan. Letters are now going out to owners saying that they didn't make the cut. They are now required to turn in their guns.
So... If they don't turn in their legally purchased and owned property the Government will confiscate them. They know where you live. They know you own the weapons, because you tried to follow the law.
What happens now? Are the people of Connecticut Lions or Sheep? Will they stand on a line and challenge the CT State Police to Molon Labe, Come and take them?
I find myself wanting them to be Lions and have the State of Connecticut back down. What I know will happen is that they will be Sheep and turn in their guns.
What will happen is that the state will make an "example" of some of the owners. The State will burst in the gun owners house like a military force, with military weapons, and take all of the once legally owned guns, and kill anyone who might resist in the slightest way.
Freedom is dead in America. It died a long time ago. If you have to ask permission to do something it is not a right, it is a privilege. What has been proven time after time in DEMOCRAT controlled states is that we own weapons at the pleasure of the Governor and the State Legislature, and sometimes the Mayor of your city.
I want this situation to end without ANY American blood being shed. It won't happen. A Law Enforcement Officer, or citizen WILL die in CT during a raid. Gun grabbers will use it as an example that ALL guns need to be taken away. Then America will have to decide. The new Persians, in the form of our own Government will be at our gates. What will we do? Will we be Lions or Sheep?
