well, well, well, TOLD YOU SO. All those who laughed at the notion that "they'll take our guns".....guess what.....not only are you now a complete idiot, but you'll probably be a target for the confiscation squad or home invasions. Thanks to the Connnecticut newspapers, they know who you are and where you live.
Be sure and hide all the wooden spoons and butter knives...they'll be next on the confiscation list.
My condolences to the lawful firearm owners of NYC... While not a Chicagoan, even their rights are not as draconian. I will add that I have no problem keeping firearms out of the hands of those adjudged to have mental incapacity...
In a society composed of trustworthy people and leaders who truly represented them this would be a good thing.
In our society, however I can see it used for much more than the wording says.
The spirit of Lautenberg is alive and thriving. In case you were unaware the Lautenberg can ban you from owning guns if you have a fight with your wife.
Argument takes place, neighbors call cops. When they arrive on the scene, SOMEONE will definitely go to jail. Usually it's the guy, because Mommy has to stay with the kids. It's quite easy to plead guilty, and avoid the lawyer expense and inconvenience. After all, it's only a Misdemeanor, right?
Once you have a DVO you are banned from owning guns. Period. No matter what state you live in.
One of the worst things that happened to gun owners, and many were unaware. They did issue an exemption for LEO's, many of whom had DVO's.
