Why do we, the people, who understand that there is a 2nd Amendment for a reason, and that plain English is easy to understand, put up with states like New York and Connecticut?
The rights of the citizens of CT have been trampled upon. The safety of its children is at best questionably improved from the day of the tragedy that triggered the events that lead us here. Finally, due to an improperly drafted bill, manufacturing of modern sporting rifles in the State of CT has been effectively outlawed. With a heavy heart but a clear mind, we have been forced to decide that our business can no longer survive in Connecticut – the former Constitution state.
Furthermore, we feel that our industry as a whole will continue to be threatened so long as it remains in a state where its elected leaders have no regard for the rights of those who produce and manufacture its wealth. We are making a call to all involved in our industry to leave this state, close your doors and show our politicians the true consequences of their hasty and uninformed actions. We encourage those in our industry to abandon this state as its leaders have abandoned the proud heritage that forged our freedom.
I will make a wider call.
We should all boycott everyone and everything in Connecticut.
You got CT plates on your car? Tough crap -- no hotel room for you, no gas, no food, no nothing. Go back where you came from. Return to your socialist utopia.
You claim you "didn't do it"? Yes you did -- you sat still for it. You haven't removed the clowns who did it. You have not done your duty as a citizen, and until you do so I will not do business with you.
Will I act on this?
In fact, I already did.
I've scrubbed my system's records. If you're a donor and live in Connecticut, you can't donate any more to my system. I won't allow it. I'm done. I don't want your money and I don't want to provide you service.
I won't come to CT, I won't knowingly buy things from people in CT and I won't do business with you.
**** off Connecticut.
To those who say "you can't do that!" oh yes I can. I have the right to refuse to do business with anyone for any reason, with a few notable exceptions such as race, religion and national origin. Your willingness to support and tolerance of jackbooted jackasses does not constitute a protected class.
If you're a state resident and don't like this then do what has to be done in order to stop trampling on the rights of the people.
I'll drop my boycott when your government repeals all restrictions on the 2nd Amendment rights of its citizens. This isn't a negotiation, it's a statement of fact and if you don't like it, tough crap.
Yes, this will cost me some money.
I don't care.
I don't want your money.
If you move from CT and can document that with a mailing address in a 2nd Amendment respecting state, let me know and I'll take you off "the list" should you wish to be able to donate once again.
My patience for this crap has expired, effective right here and now.
