    Gov. Malloy Intends to Sign Executive Order to Ban the Sale of Firearms in Connecticut to Those on Government Watch Lists - Connecticut's Official State Website

    Urges Congress to Adopt Legislation Requiring Similar Background Checks Across the Nation

    (HARTFORD, CT) - Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced his intention to sign a first-in-the-nation executive order that will allow firearm permits to be denied to those on the government watch lists. The Connecticut State Police already performs background checks on those seeking permits to purchase guns in Connecticut, based on Governor Malloy's 2013 gun violence prevention legislation, one of the smartest laws in the nation. Pending federal approval, Governor intends to sign an executive order mandating that Connecticut State Police be required to cross-reference the names of those who wish to obtain a permit to own a firearm with the government watch lists. Those with existing permits who are found to be on those watch list would have their permits revoked, and if a new match is found, the permit would be denied and the purchaser would be unable to purchase handguns, shotguns, rifles and ammunition. Assault weapons are already outlawed in Connecticut.

    Everybody in Conn. needs to send him a copy of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution and underline the "shall not infringe" part. It won't stand up in court.

    And with a stroke of the pen, he'll create felons out of citizens.

    "Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137: “The Constitution of these United States is the supreme law of the land. Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void of law.”

    Murdock v. Penn., 319 US 105: “No state shall convert a liberty into a privilege, license it, and attach a fee to it.”

    Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham, 373 US 262: “If the state converts a liberty into a privilege, the citizen can engage in the right with impunity.”

    executive orders mean nothing to ordinary citizens.

    If you aren't on a government watch list .... you should be ashamed of yourself!
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    The no fly list is nothing but an unconstitutional (under the 5th Amendment-no due process) secret government list full of flaws made up by anonymous government agents. Clearly this idiot governor is writing another unconstitutional "law" based on and unconstitutional secret list. Watch out next will be to send people on a secret government list to the gulag.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears
