CT Governor Malloy to Gun Rights Advocate: “You Lost”

At a town meeting, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy addressed a lengthy question about the Constitution State’s post-Newtown civilian disarmament legislation. Malloy sums up the challenges to the law by telling an unhappy American gun owner “you lost” (4:48). The applause greeting his summation reflects the gulf between pro-gun control voters and the tens of thousands of gun owners who’ve refused to register their firearms and, thus, become, Class D felons. Whatever you think of Malloy’s justification for “strengthening” Connecticut’s gun laws – and “not much” just begins to cover it – the Governor isn’t backing up or backing off. With the letter threatening “charges” against non-compliant gun owners, the conflict grows more ominous by the day.
