A Plea for Help from Fellow American Patriot Bob Ferguson

The following was sent to me by my friend Bob Ferguson. I told him I would help him by posting this on the D.C. Clothesline. These are Bob’s words and his plea to those who believe in rights protected by our constitution. Please help him by spreading the word. Our rights are not negotiable, they are protected by God and by our constitution. -Dean Garrison

I am a resident in the Town of Weston, Connecticut, home to just over 10,000 residents.  Weston is an affluent, quiet little town about an hour commute from NYC.  Median home prices are well in excess of $1,000,000.  Violent crime in the town has been virtually zero for decades.

The Town Board of Selectmen have put forth a ban on the ownership or possession of EVERY type of firearm imaginable including “Rifles, Shotguns, Assault Weapons, fully Automatic Weapons, Pistols, Handguns, Revolvers, Long Bows, Cross Bows, Airguns and Slingshots.”  The proposal was revealed at a Town meeting last week and is up for discussion and a vote by the Board in the coming weeks.  This proposal was reported by National Public Radio earlier today, although many of the details were left out.

I have included a draft of the proposed Firearms ordinance as drafted by the Board of Selectmen.

This proposal is an absolute ban on ownership or possession of “Assault weapons, Automatic Weapons and detachable magazines capable of storing more than 10 rounds.”  All other firearm ownership and possession is banned unless the resident registers EACH firearm with the Chief of Police and receives a special permit at the sole discretion of the Chief.  This is for ALL EXISTING FIREARMS, even if they are already legally owned.

When I spoke with 1st Selectmen, Gail Weinstein this week, she stated that the purpose of the proposed ban was “not only to protect our schools” but that the police “need to know of every firearm out there in case they have to respond to a call at the residence for their own protection.”  This effectively turns ALL law abiding gun owners into a separate class of citizens, to be watched and apparently treated differently from other Town residents.  This type of registration would be akin to  requiring all law abiding Muslims to be registered with the Chief of Police just in case one turned out to be an Islamic terrorist, purportedly for the protection of Town residents and the police.

I’ve discussed the proposed ordinance with several attorneys that all claim it is in violation of Connecticut State and Federal law as well as in conflict with both CT and U.S. Constitutions.

Please help make this sham of local legislative overreach known to the general public.

You may contact me with any questions.

Regards,

Bob Ferguson

    State By State Takeover of USA if we are ever to survive and dismantle this out of control Fascistic Federal Regime Government.

    We need to Govern According to the U.S. Constitution, State By State. If the New York’s, California’s, Washington’s, Oregon’s, Wisconsin’s, etc. want a Bankrupt State of Entitlements, let them support themselves and leave the Responsible States Out of the Equation. Same goes for the Federal Government. Let the Socialist and Irresponsible States provide the Funding for this Federal Dictatorship made up of Agencies designed to Destroy our Freedoms and Rights and making us pay for our own enslavement while they reward the Deadbeats On Welfare Programs, and this DOES NOT mean Seniors who have Paid their Whole Lives into this Bogus Ponzi Scheme called Social Security. If a person has not paid in, they deserve NOTHING from Social Security or of any other of the bogus programs we now have. Programs designed to create Slaves who will Vote Them In Power as long as the Free Shit keeps coming.

    As it now stands, the USA has more Red States and a hell of a lot more territory than do the Liberal Lunatic Socialist States with very large majorities of Deadbeats and Criminals Gobbling Up Resources. It is not right, fair nor Constitutional for a Federal Government To Extract Taxes from those Who Work and Produce in order to Fund an Institutionalized Federal Welfare System nor to fund a Bloated U.S. Bureaucracy that is used to Bludgeon Us To Death With Taxes, Regulations, Fees, etc. that are Destructive to us individually and to the nation.

    All Politics is Local. If we do not begin to Take Our Government and Our Constitutional Rights Back beginning in our own Towns, Counties and States, we will not last much longer as a nation of free and sovereign people. If we cannot take control of our own towns, counties, and states, what makes anybody believe we can take control of a Centralized Fascist Federal Government with Headquarters in Washington DC where our so-called Representatives Reside and Are Entertained, Bought and Controlled by Special Interest Lobbyists who Buy and Sell our Congressmen/women the say way they buy and then change their underwear. Our elected Representatives have long ago abandoned the Representation of the Interests of the Common Working Man and Small Businesses, and is now totally Beholden to the Highest Bidders who Buy and Sell them in order to get Billions more in the Return than the hundreds of millions they spend to buy these scoundrels. The Lobbyists Use the Money they Get From The Tax Payers VIA the Federal Government and Our Politicians to Buy and Sell Our So-Called Representatives who Only Represent themselves and the Criminals who Buy and Sell them with Our Tax Dollars. Talk about a money laundering and ponzi scheme? This is the largest and most diabolical, subversive and corrupt Scheme being played out on U.S. Citizens than any in the history of the world. And, folks still go around saying, “Well we still live in the best and most free country in the world”, which is partially true, but you are only Free as Long as You Play The Game and do not Challenge this Fascist and Corrupt System of Governance that has been foisted upon us by Our Elected Politicians of Both of the So-Called Parties called Democrats and Republicans, who are, in actuality only Two Factions of the One Big Government Party which Both Parties have Built and Keep Expanding at the Expense of our Freedoms and at the Expense of the Prosperity and Wealth of Producers who, in today’s world in the USA is only Middle Class Wage Earners and Small Businesses and Medium Sized Businesses and they are being Squeezed Out by Excessive Taxation and Regulations. It is time to put an end to this insanity while we still have a modicum of a chance to do so. But, it will have to be done From The Bottom Up and Not From the Top Down.

    Remember, if you cannot or will not even control your local school boards, city councils, mayors, sheriffs departments, etc, how in the hell are you going to control this Fascistic and All Powerful Federal Government that will spend tens of millions of borrowed money to Destroy a Citizen, Company or Group if they choose to do so, and they use this Power to Squash Opposition to Government Policies, Laws and Dictates. In short, Our Federal Government is a Fascistic Regime being run and administered by our elected Politicians and The Bureaucrats They Hire to Enforce Taxes and Regulations on Producers and will allow no Opposition. Stand up and be squashed is their way, and we must stop this and begin stopping it soon if we are to survive as a Free and Sovereign People in a Free and Sovereign Nation. Our Elected Officials are Handing Over USA sovereignty to a One World Fascist Regime, and they are doing it all for Personal Gains in their own Wealth, Power and Prestige, at the Expense of Our Rights, Freedoms, Property and Personal Earnings and Wealth.

    Oh, and if anyone wants to see the proposed ordinance it can be seen here: http://www.ammoland.com/2013/01/weston-ct-gun-ban-proposal/

  3. Mopar says:

    The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL) is on it too, though quite frankly with all the state and federal level laws coming out left and right our resources are stretched mighty thin right now.

  4. Hodag says:

    Contact the NRA, and also Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, (You do not have to be Jewish), The Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
    Bring the wrath of God on these fascist bastards. Overwhelm them with the combined power of these organizations. As a law abiding American citizen, no one has ANY requirement to comply with this garbage.

  5. Reading this, I can only say ‘good luck’…

  6. This is INSANITY!! You need to mobilize up there in idiocyville…Seriously. If they tried that here in Tennessee, that would be the line for many of us. Ya’ll better man up and do something about this insanity. I believe we all better just start preparing for the fight because it’s on. These authoritarian statists are making their play. They made a big mistake.

  7. Ed says:

    Unfortunately, I can’t get to the link for the proposed ordinance. Dean, could you drop a copy of it to me via email (I think you as the blog owner can see my email information). I’m not a member of CT State Bar, but I do have the ear of an American Bar Association 2A subcommittee member, and I’m one of the FPC volunteer organizers, so I might be able to help this get some notice. Plus, I have an interesting idea I want to try.

  8. Russ says:

    All gun owners of that town need to get together and stage protest meeting near city hall, the more people attend the better.

  9. k leiter says:

    I’m sure there are very few police compared to the number of citizens that have the proposed to ban items.
    All it would take is for the citizens to say no more. Not one inch more. We will not comply. Make the town leadership afraid of them. The only reason they think they can do this is because they are not afraid of being rebuked by the people.

    Stand up Weston!! What are your rights worth to you?

    Everything is under attack…Constitution, guns, coal, rainwater, property rights…and now as a Daughter of the American Revolution I’m fighting the NSDAR’s removal of Christianity from its Ritual and Missal. I can’t do much about a lot of things, but that’s a battle I intend to give all. Keep fighting this legislation…not any of us, not a one, can give up. Winston Churchill: NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!

    We’re on it. I’m getting the word passed as we speak. This will not stand. I’ve recommended he contact the NRA to get their legal pitbulls involved. Another good resource could be Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation. Levin spoke on the 2nd Amendment at the top of his show last Friday. If anyone has ever listened to Mark Levin, you know this is one guy you would want on your side in a legal fight.

    A person would think by listening to these elected people they all have become with some sort of brain decease where they think they know how to fix everything!!
