After the Sandy Hook school shooting in December 2012, liberals constantly told us that new gun-control laws in Connecticut were just for public safety. Increased background checks, limits on magazine sizes and gun registration would never, ever lead to anything more.

They were telling the truth. Kind of.

In Connecticut, gun owners were required by law to register so-called “assault weapons” and their magazines with the state government by December 31, 2013. Many of these gun owners didn’t comply (and wisely so) because they didn’t want their name on a government list and/or be subject to future confiscation.

Unfortunately, they were already on a list because they had to go through a background check to legally purchase their AR-15. Now these non-complying owners are subject to having their guns confiscated by local and state authorities.

While many law enforcement officers are quietly against this unconstitutional action, at least a handful of Connecticut cops believe they’re just “doing their job” to gather the guns.

A concerned citizen called Connecticut State Police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance to ask him about the possibility of guns being confiscated. Here’s the recording of this shocking conversation:

Lt. Vance has the audacity to say that opposing door-to-door gun confiscation is “un-American.” And he doesn’t believe this action violates the 2nd Amendment.

There’s a good reason the Founders put the right to bear arms as the 2nd Amendment, right behind freedom of speech, press, religion and assembly.

History shows that when governments register or confiscate guns from its citizens, bad things happen.

Historians estimate the number of people killed by their own government in the 20th century anywhere from 169 million to 260 million. In almost every instance, governments took away citizens’ right to defend themselves and this led to mass murder or “democide.”

Winston Churchill said that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Decades of the dumbing down of public education and mass media have made tens of millions of Americans ignorant of even basic world history.

So-called “progressive” or liberal leaders and activists still try to repeat the Big Lie that gun-control is for the safety and security of all Americans.

That flies in the face of a study conducted by the Pew Research Center, which revealed that gun crime went down 49% from 1993 to 2010… as a 2011 Gallup poll showed American gun ownership rates the highest since 1993.

On top of these damning statistics, Senator Dianne Feinstein already revealed the Left’s true intentions back in 1995. This 38-second video says it all:

Here’s the damning and revealing quote from one of the biggest liberals in the U.S. Senate:

If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States… for an outright ban, picking up every one of them… Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ’em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.

Thomas Jefferson said that vigilance is the eternal price of liberty. Given the Left’s all-out assault on our liberties in America today, it’s time to be more vigilant than ever. Talk with your friends, family and co-workers about this and other important issues.

Said another way: A vigilant society is a free society.

And to paraphrase the Most Interesting Man In The World (from the Dos Equis beer commercials): Stay vigilant, my friends.
