[Video] Fed Up Navy Vets Warns CT Lawmakers on Gun Registration: “I Will Not Comply”
This video is from last year when Connecticut was still debating their gun control bill which included registration for certain weapons that were deemed to be “assault weapons” by the state. The video is just now starting to make the rounds on the web.
There is a good reason this video is now making the rounds. In it, a man, who is being identified as John S. Cinque, a Navy vet, asks Connecticut lawmakers during a hearing what they will do when people like him do not comply with the law.
Back in 2013 that might have seemed like an empty threat. However, as registration numbers come to light in CT, it appears there could be tens of thousands, if not 100,000+, residents who did not register their semi-automatic rifles and/or standard capacity magazines. These people are now criminals in the state of CT.
Here are some highlights from the video,
First off, Cinque begins by asking lawmakers if anything in this bill would have prevented Sandy Hook from happening. Of course, lawmakers had to say “maybe not” (the answer is no).
Then Cinque got into the meat of his speech, asking lawmakers what they would do to people who refused to comply. They were coy about answering that question.
“I’m a 30-year public servant, 20-year career fireman, OK? United States Navy veteran, upstanding citizen all my life, three children — and with the stroke of a pen from the ivory tower with the gold top, you’ve decided to create me to be a felon. A class D felony for doing absolutely nothing wrong.”
“You people really think they’re going to stop? I’m telling you right now, I’m will never vote for any of you again, I’m done.”
“I don’t want to speak for nobody else… But I’m telling you right now, I will not comply. There you go.”
