Can a Gun Manufactured in Connecticut be Sold in Texas? Yes, says Governor.

Another knee slapping, slapstick whacking look at the liberal logic and the Second Amendment.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a Democrat, supports a gun banning bill and could sign it into law as soon as Wednesday night. That'd be tonight.

Okay, so the good people of Connecticut have formed lines to buy up every gun and gun part on the shelves of stores in Connecticut.

And....gun manufacturers who've been operating in Connecticut since the Revolutionary War are talking about moving operations to other states. There goes a lot of Connecticut jobs and Connecticut revenue.

BUT WAIT! Says the Governor in a letter to gun manufacturers. You can continue manufacturing in Connecticut. You just can't sell in Connecticut. Just sell your gun and gun parts in another state.

Mark Malkowski, owner and president of Stag Arms in New Britain, said, "It's actually quite hypocritical, quite insulting," he said. "If our products are so dangerous and so horrible that no Connecticut resident should be in possession of it, why is it OK to send it to the rest of the country?"

Yeah. And wait until New York City's Mayor Bloomberg starts lambasting the Governor of Connecticut for being such a hypocrite.

But isn't that the foundation of liberalism and the Second Amendment? We can have guns, but you can't? We liberals can do what we want? But you can't do what you want?

And they wonder why liberals are called dictators...............

Customers pack Conn. gun stores after deal on laws

O.F. Mossberg & Sons Inc. in North Haven does not support a ban on firearms or equipment, said Joe Bartozzi, senior vice president and general counsel, adding that "they've never reduced crime or violence."

Mossberg has been in business since 1919 and employs 270 workers in Connecticut. It also has a manufacturing plant in Eagle Pass, Texas, and has been courted for years by other states.

"I've got a stack of invitations from governors, congressmen and economic development groups right here on my desk," he said.

Mossberg, Stag Arms and lets not forget on of the original manufacturers of the AR platform Colt. They all have plans to up and leave CT in the wake of the unconstitutional laws that will inevitably be put in place. Today a perfectly law abiding, tax paying citizen in CT can be labeled as a Class D felon based on what he or she keeps locked in their Gun safe or, choose to purchase for their collection. So owning a 30 round mag puts you on the same level as a rapist in the governments eyes!! Absolutely sickening!

To think this wont have an impact on the already fragile economy is to pull a veil over your eyes. 200+ Mossberg and Stag Arms employees, 600+ Colt employees and 100's of others jobs lost amongst local parts suppliers etc.

"Shall not be infringed," means SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! There is no other interpretation.

And you can bet that if they all move to another state (which is their right as a business), and the backlash from the citizens results in an overturn of the unconstitutional law, there is little chance these companies will EVER return to that state.

Sad really, that a politicians need for reelection and votes can have such an adverse impact on the entire state. I guess the citizens of this state have no idea what they are giving up....and will discover too late I'm afraid.

We want your jobs and your taxes we just dont want your product.

Sounds about right.

Why freedom loving people and companies remain in those States is beyond me.

So Connecticut says your weapons of death can't be allowed to its residents, but you companies go right on making them, and selling them to others so we can make money off you.

That is pretty damn twisted.

Sort of makes Malloy out to be a corrupted mafia boss: "Dont sell that poison in our neighborhoods! Sell it to the blacks."

On the federal level our Government does the same damn thing arming dictator,and freedom fighter,and cartel.

Scant difference between Connecticut, and US government,

On noes!

You can't have that "assault weapon" turns around sells weapons to whoever is "friendly" at the time.

Fail to see the "moral high ground" when it comes to the purveyors of "gun control".

Their moral compasses is seriously out of whack.

We need more gun control debates to further increase the sale of guns.

The liberal mainstream media has put all its effort behind the gun grab...and failed miserably.

Finally, something we can all use to laugh at the liberal media.
