Yes, Connecticut's "Turn In Your Assault Weapon" Letter Is Real
By Bob Owens. March 2nd, 2014.
Yes, the Connecticut "assault weapon letter" is real.
New London Connecticut newspaper The Day confirms that Connecticut State Police did, in fact, issue this letter:
The letters are not a warning but rather a notification that their application was rejected, according to state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance.
"It just gives them their options," he said. "Right now we're just trying to help everyone abide by the law. There's nothing more than that."
The letter offers options on what to do: Render the weapon or magazine permanently inoperable, sell it to a licensed gun dealer, remove it from the state or make arrangements to hand it over to local or state police.
The letters, signed by Lt. Eric Cooke, commander of the special licensing and firearms unit, are being sent out even as the task of sifting through the thousands of applications and declarations continues.
Tensions continue to rise in Connecticut, as the home addresses of the legislators who voted for the ban have been posted on numerous web sites and forums. Many of the legislators are now calling for police protective details, regarding the publication of their home addresses as a threat to their safety.
Mike Vanderboegh, the blogger who helped break the "Fast and Furious" guns smuggling scandal, is reporting signs of dissension within the ranks of Connecticut State Troopers who are worried that politicians and higher level officials within the law enforcement agency are putting their lives at risk.
It's a bad situation that could get out of control very quickly. We can only hope that the saner heads in Connecticut's government realize how grossly they've overreached here, and that they will repeal this blatantly unconstitutional law before good people get hurt.

The Gang Movie
This deep digging documentary movie was released in 2007 and runs 85 minutes. It contains material that many would find hard to believe, as it exposes the abuses and inconsistencies of the out-of-control agency BATFE.
Purchase a copy from the JPFO store, learn the facts, and then pass that information on to those who might have any doubts. Current events concerning the "Fast and Furious" debacle, sometimes known as "Gun Walker" just amplify the degree of corruption that exists, and has existed for so long.

The JPFO Homepage Footnotes
Since the loss of our Founder, Aaron Zelman, back in December of 2010, the JPFO current team has vowed to not only continue his mission but, best we can, expand on it and aggressively maintain the thrust of JPFO’s objectives. We produced a new-look site layout which is an attempt to make for more page space, more interest, and helpful navigation. Your support is essential and appreciated - please join or donate to help the efforts.
What many new visitors may not realize is that over 11 years and more, the site has accumulated a wealth of information and so, apart from using the links in our navigation menus, it is well worth researching through our search option in the upper right of the header, although older pages may often come up. JPFO tries to educate and provide "intellectual ammunition" to help people be better informed and so better able to fight the fight themselves. It is through representation by the individual that progress can be made in protecting our fundamental rights.
The sad fact is, that the anti gun movements feel that a ban across the board is essential, and yet we all know through simple logic that banning of guns, and so depriving law-abiding folks of their innate right of self defense, is a recipe for not only a destruction of the Second Amendment but also a refusal to acknowledge that all the criminals will as always, remain armed and dangerous. The battle is hard but has to be sustained and Genocide could be right round the corner.
Reflections on JPFO history and the future.
