John Cinque, a U.S. Navy veteran, had some strong word for the legislators in Connecticut regarding their recent threats against gun owners who have refused to comply with their gun ban legislation. Cinque, along with thousands of other CT residents, have failed to obey the law and register their “assault” weapons as they’ve been redefined, in spite of the letter that have been sent out by the CT State Police.
Cinque has been a firefighter for over 20 years and recently showed up at a public meeting in North Haven, Connecticut in 2013 to confront the lawmakers there about the controversial bill. There’s reportedly as many as 100000 people who have refused to comply with the law, and Cinque seemed to tell the lawmakers exactly what’s been on all of their minds.
The first thing that he asked lawmakers at the meeting is if the bill would have done anything at all to prevent Sandy Hook, which was the reason it was created in the first place.
“Maybe Not,” State Rep. David Yaccarino replied.
Cinque then pressed further and asked the lawmakers what they intended to do with the people who refuse to obey the radical new law.
“That’s up to you, that’s your right,” Yaccarino said. “As far as Sandy Hook, we don’t know if it would’ve or wouldn’t have, but we also have an obligation to do our best to protect public safety.”
Apparently that’s all Cinque could take, because at that point he laid into the group of lawmakers pretty hard, prompting a room full of cheers and applause.
“I’m a 30-year public servant, 20-year career fireman, OK? United States Navy veteran, upstanding citizen all my life, three children — and with the stroke of a pen from the ivory tower with the gold top, you’ve decided to create me to be a felon. A class D felony for doing absolutely nothing wrong.”
From there he let everyone in the room know what the gun grabber’s true intentions are and warned that they wouldn’t simply stop once everyone’s firearms are registered and they know who has what.
“You people really think they’re going to stop? I’m telling you right now, I’m will never vote for any of you again, I’m done,”he said.
Before he finished chewing out the lawmakers, who were shocked at his outburst, he left them with one final warning.
“I don’t want to speak for nobody else… But I’m telling you right now, I will not comply. There you go.”
I’m sure he echoed the sentiments of people across the state and the nation with his closing statement. Our Second Amendment rights are not up for debate when it comes to irrational fears of inanimate objects, and laws that have been enacted in states across the nation by progressive demcrats do nothing more than piss off the populace and push us closer to an uprising while we await the first shots to be fired.
