Connecticut lawmakers just passed a bill that will allow police to confiscate the guns of anyone accused of domestic abuse. That sounds reasonable until you examine it closely. What this law actually does is allow the police to strip citizens of a constitutional right based solely on an accusation. That is, you are considered guilty and lose your Second Amendment rights until you’re proven innocent. Backers claim this is necessary to protect women because there are, on average, seven domestic abuse-related gun homicides a year in Connecticut, out of a population of 3.5 million people. The liberal legislature doesn’t seem to understand that if they really wanted women to have the most effective protection from violent abusers, they’d stop trying to repeal the Second Amendment.

Conservative Tribune:  RED ALERT: Governor To Sign Firearm Confiscation Bill… Is This Your State?

Connecticut’s lawmakers have just passed legislation permitting law enforcement to seize firearms and ammunition from anyone accused of domestic abuse. The bill is headed to the desk of Gov. Dannel Malloy — and he’s expected to sign it, according to The Connecticut Post.

So, if an individual wants someone’s guns taken away, all they have to do is accuse another person of domestic violence. That’s prefect Democrat logic — guilty until proven innocent.

Again, the law would require alleged domestic abusers — in most cases, men — to immediately give up their guns if their partners seek restraining orders.

This absurdity is reminiscent of women who make false rape claims against innocent men — soon, Connecticut’s residents can make false domestic violence claims, as well, if they’re interested in infringing upon the Second Amendment rights of their fellow citizens.

The reasoning behind the Democrats’ passage of the bill was explained by The Post:

“The goal is to protect women from the increased lethality at a critical point in a relationship: when they are trying to leave their abusers. About 14 domestic homicides occur annually in Connecticut, half of which are caused by guns.”

    This law violates the equal protection clause because it targets men.
