Connecticut Bill to Limit Firearms to One Round

How far will liberals push their hostility to our Second Amendment liberties? As far as we let them. If they don’t get sufficient resistance to their attack on “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines, the next step could look something like this actual proposed bill from Connecticut:

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

That the general statutes be amended to establish a class C felony offense, except for certain military and law enforcement personnel and certain gun clubs, for (1) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate, transport, possess or use any gun except one made to fire a single round, (2) any person to fire a gun containing more than a single round, (3) any person or organization to receive from another state, territory or country a gun made to fire multiple rounds, or (4) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate or possess a magazine or clip capable of holding more than one round.

Imagine if Melinda Herman, who was chased into her attic crawlspace with her children by a home invader who finally left under his own power after taking five rounds from her .38, had been limited by some sanctimonious bureaucrat to a single bullet.

Next after this comes the ban on muskets.

    Certainly, the war against Western civilization is perennial. A long, hard road ahead, for sure.

    Which, as long as the gun in question is still breech action, will make very little difference to a shooter in an unarmed victim zone.

    It wouldn’t take long to pull the bolt back (or otherwise open the action), grab a round from a box in your pocket, place it, and chamber it.

    Is the difference enough to put a person at a disadvantage against an opponent armed with a semi-automatic weapon? Yes. Would it absolutely cripple its utility as a self defense weapon, as most people don’t walk around with boxes of ammo in their pockets? Yes. Will it make any difference at all for an unarmed victim facing a maniac that brought spare ammo? Absolutely not.

    So in a nutshell, just like every other gun control bill this one cripples the law abiding citizen’s ability to protect himself from criminals and rogue authorities, while doing absolutely nothing to hinder the criminal’s ability to inflict mass death.

    Liberal jackwad. Piss off and mind your own damned business.

    The Left feels their time has come. It’s a full court press on on issues at once to overwhelm any meaningful resistance to their “transformation” of America into a soft socialist tyranny. But they HAVE to get our guns before the fools who vote for their politicians realize they voted for their own enslavement. Once disarmed we’ll have no way to control our own government. We barely can now.

  • justme

    The fact is that large swaths of law abiding Americans will never relinquish their guns no matter how they are made to be criminals. In NY City so many of my neighbors and relatives have tremendous private arsenals, the people with them would amaze you. In the event of a break-in or robbery their assailants will not survive and we are all learning not to call police and will handle these matters ourselves.

    The sheer firepower amassed by people you would never expect in the great gun free zone of Bloombergistan is fierce. These are professionals with large amounts of assets and reputations. Some even keep military grade assault weapons as several people showed me during the flooding aftermath.

    Laws disarming the law-abiding WILL NEVER BE OBSERVED.

    This P.O.S is my state senator. He is as sleazy as he looks. He makes used car salesmen exaggerations look good. Since he has been in office, I can’t think of a single worthwhile thing he’s done.

    Are we sure someone didn’t swap the protard-in-question’s picture with that of Howdy Doody? (Meyer has just demonstrated that he IS a piece o’ doody)

    You might want to ask the men of the 1st bn, 7th Cavalry how those single shot “trapdoor” Model 1873 Springfields worked out for ‘em at the Little Big Horn.

  • whotothewhat

    So the technical work around would be to construct a personal man carried howitzer that could shoot a single large shot that would take out whole groups of people either like a grapeshot or fragmentation with a electronic proximity fuse.

  • M.Wilson

    Wizard: The indians at Little Big Horn weren’t unarmed. In fact, they were armed with repeating rifles, which are indeed superior to single shot rifles. See my statement that being limited to a single shot would indeed put them at a disadvantage against someone with a semi-auto.

    Like I said, limiting the guns to a single shot would absolutely cripple the law-abiding citizen’s ability to protect themselves while doing next to nothing to stop a psycho from shooting up an unarmed victim zone.

    So why one round ?
    A single round is all that’s required to self inflict.
    So when the Peoples Republik of Connecticut starts rounding it’s subjects up, there will be more room in the cattle cars

  • cedar rebellion

    A 150mm howitzer will be very hard to carry but I’m working on a concealed carry holster for it.

  • Sarge

    My guess the good senator is an alcoholic, shouldn’t the senate require a breathalyzer test before each session.

  • Winston Smith

    Just use several huge blunderbusses – filled with nails, nuts, bolts and screws that ensures a large spread pattern. Next woujld come background checks for nail, nuts, bolts and screws at the hardware stores.

    No way this goofy bill will be passed. The courts would be clogged with cases for decades.

  • Cameraman

    You will have at least One Round to off yourself, and that would make this Jackass”s Day..God I hate Liberals…WPS

    For anyone into the white supremacy thing, look at this f*n freckle-faced doughboy of a retard…………he makes my point that its ideology not race.

    I’ll take Lt. Col. Alan West any day.

    This Wonder Bread, alcoholic, lily-white degenerate is living proof that Progressives are in fact Regressives: Windmills to replace nuclear; dandelions instead of steak; sheep to replace the eagle; bicycles – not SUV’s; Girl Scouts to replace Marines; Anything but Christianity; sodomy to replace marriage; sloth in place of work; judges to replace voters; and a musket to replace an AR-15.

    And I suppose, a cave to replace the modern dwelling.

    This guy is so Regressive he may be the missing link.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
    ― C.S. Lewis

    However, Lee Harvey Oswald disagrees.

    Re; the pix. It’s only fair that an idiot look like an idiot. It helps the rest of us to avoid them.

    Did they start stockpiling idiots in Connecticut or something?

  • 762×51

    As long as this asshole uses that one bullet to put himself out of my misery, He should do it. SOON.

    One bullet is only good for suicide which is what we will be doing if we allow this crap.

  • RKae

    And always keep in mind: Whatever the left proposes, it’s only step #1.

    Whenever they win a victory, they waste no time in saying, “But we still have a long way to go.”

    And if this idiot trying to limit us all to flintlocks has more in mind, I shudder to think what it is!

  • James McEnanly

    Would that single round be in a liberator pistol? During the Second World War, thousands of these were dropped on occupied France. The idea was for a prospective resistance fighter to get close enough to a German soldier to fire at contact so that he could take the soldier’s rifle, ammunition, and anything else of value he might be carrying.

  • KHarn

    TO Wizard45 and M.Wilson:

    The 7TH had the copper Berdan-primed cartridge that often stuck in the chamber. The pivoting claw often ripped throug the rim. The Souix’s Henrys and Winchesters 1866′s actions drew the shorter case out straight, so there was little problem for them using the copper rim-fire rounds.

    Some of the indians were interogated about the battle and they reported seeing some troopers working over the carbines with their knives, trying to pry out the cases. This was confirmed by the chipped knives found on site and by six carbines found in the indian camp durring the winter campaign which had cases jammed in them.

  • snuss

    Do we have to carry that one round in our shirt pocket, like Barney Fife?

    “Wizard: The indians at Little Big Horn weren’t unarmed. In fact, they were armed with repeating rifles, which are indeed superior to single shot rifles.”
    They also had the advantages of superior numbers and higher ground, as Bill Cosby humorously noted in his famous ‘Coin Toss’ comedy routine early in his career.
