Governor of Connecticut Dannel P. Malloy wants to ban those on federal terrorism watch lists from purchasing weapons in Connecticut.
Mr. Malloy said Connecticut would become the first state in the nation to have such a measure.
“Like all Americans, I have been horrified by the recent terrorist attacks in San Bernardino and Paris,” said Mr. Malloy, a Democrat. “This should be a wake-up call to all of us. This is a moment to seize in America — and today I’m here to say that we in Connecticut are seizing it.”
Connecticut already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, including measures enacted in 2013 after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in 2012. In that attack, a gunman killed 20 schoolchildren and six staff members before killing himself.
On the federal level, mass shootings have failed to prompt any action on guns.
On Sunday, President Obama, in a televised address to the nation on the threat of terrorism, called for federal regulations that would bar those on the federal no-fly list from buying guns.
“What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to buy a semiautomatic weapon?” Mr. Obama said. “This is a matter of national security.”

This is how Obama and the rest of the Left will move to take your weapons. Since anyone on the Right can be considered a terrorist, according to the Obama administration, anyone interested in protected the Second Amendment can have their weapons taken from them.
You know, Adolf Hitler outlawed weapons too, before he invaded Poland…
