Gun control fascists: Connecticut’s Democratic legislature has have passed a new law, which the Democratic governor has signed, allowing the government to confiscate the firearms of anyone placed under a temporary restraining order.
Temporary restraining orders are routinely granted with little or no examination of the underlying facts and based wholly on one-sided testimony. Such a process is certainly appropriate in cases of domestic abuse, stalking, and the like. But with the implementation of this new law the subject of the restraining order is punished without ever having his day in court. In fact, they are punished without ever even being accused of, let alone convicted of, a crime. The TRO does not require a crime to have been committed – just a feeling of danger.
Now, if you hate guns and you live in Connecticut, all you have to do is say that you feel threatened by someone, and the government can take that person’s guns. No trial, no evidence, no Constitutional rights. The feelings of a person trumps all!
Note the pattern. Almost all of the people trying to ban free speech and our Constitutional rights are leftists, be it either Democratic politicians, leftwing academics, or communist student groups. Yet, these same people are going to claim that no one should vote for Donald Trump, because he, in league with the Republicans, is going to take away our Constitutional rights.
