Malloy is right about one thing, when it comes to this law, the side of liberty lost.

As Connecticut is in the midst of a very serious situation regarding guns and gun registration, Governor Dannel Malloy attended a town meeting this week to address constituents at John Barry Elementary School in Meriden, Connecticut. During that event, a pro-gun citizen, who has opposed the legislation signed into law by Malloy, which requires gun owners to register their semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines or be considered felons, asked how Malloy could push legislation that is against law abiding gun owners while abolishing the death penalty and offered early release for violent criminals. Malloy’s answer was not to point to the State Constitution, but to point to the people’s desire to “feel safe.” In that respect, he told the questioner that the legislation regarding gun registration had gone through each branch of government and “your side lost.” In essence, Malloy said, “Get over it.”
Malloy told a constituent who asked about the constitutionality of the gun registration law, “One court has already decided… courts are where the constitutionality of these things are decided.”
“You’ve thrown that term around,” Malloy said with a smirk, speaking of the term “constitutional.” “It’s gone to the court, and guess what? You lost.”
