H.R 226, introduced by Representative Rosa DeLauro was brought to the House last Monday and counts with the support of one of her colleagues.

This is the first attempt by a State government to follow up on the steps of the Federal Government to try to limit the possession of lawfully acquired firearms.

The bill clearly intends to bribe the public into complying with government policy recently presented by Barack Obama, who signed 23 Executive Orders that directly attack the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution contained in the Bill of Rights.

When the Government fears the people, there is peace. But when the people fear the Government, well, the United States happens.

The people are no match for domestic or foreign threats once they have been disarmed and the people of the United States are rapidly walking towards that scenario.
