City legislators in Stamford, Connecticut want to take gun confiscation into their own hands.
Jeffrey Stella (D-9) and Rodney Pratt (D-9) of the Board of Representatives are moving an ordinance forward that would enable police to confiscate homemade firearms from city residents.
The city legislators are specifically targeting 3D printable firearms and “ghost guns” in this case. The two legislators said that “Laws have to keep up with technology that allows people to create plastic weapons using 3-D printers, and to build guns from parts they can buy, unregulated, online.”
According to Stella, their ordinance is based off one that went into effect in Bridgeport fourth months prior. This ordinance bans anyone living within the city limits from owning, using or selling weapons manufactured at home, which is currently legal in Connecticut and at the federal level.
Stella continued voicing his displeasure with 3D printable firearms:
“How can it be OK for people to manufacture firearms without serial numbers? As a police officer and a city representative, I took oaths to serve and protect people.”
Stella and Pratt’s ordinance has an endgame in mind which Stella ended up revealing:
“Anybody can make these untraceable guns. I feel that if more towns push to ban them, the people in Hartford will realize this is what the people want.”
So it’s clear that the legislators intention is to create a domino effect of gun control at the local level that will ultimately force the state government of Connecticut to act on the matter.
Pratt added that this ordinance is a good first step for “common-sense” gun laws and that “we don’t want to sit back and wait for the state.”
3D printable firearms have become a whipping boy for gun controllers in solidly blue states lately.
The State of New Jersey recently banned them and is now threatening criminal prosecution against individuals who share files that include manufacturing blueprints for 3D printable firearms.
Connecticut is bound to join New Jersey soon. It has already established itself as a national gun control leader by spearheading the passage of red flag gun confiscation orders, bump stock bans, and universal background checks.
With a recent ammo tax proposal at the state level and this latest local ordinance against 3D printable firearms, Connecticut continues to cement its status as one of the most anti-gun states in the country.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
