respectfully, not all Beretta pistols are made in America. Some (like the 92A1 I have) were made in Italy and are stamped on the slide “Made in Italy” Maybe the ones for the military were what you were referring to.

Holy cow, what an old story!!! This is not new news at all……and if we’re going to do this story, can we please put up a picture of an ACTUAL Beretta M9 instead of a Taurus 92? Details…details I know.
February 13, 2014 at 12:10pm
So to all of you that called us “sheep” for seeing one picture on-line, I’m waiting for an apology….. I’m sure we would welcome some help from fellow patriots.
January 1, 2014 at 5:31pm
Thanks to the couple people who backed me up. And for those of you who resorted to personal attacks, shame on you. I’m glad you live in 2A friendly states. Our reality here is different from yours in regards to the 2A. We have fought tooth and nail to prevent this but unfortunately our lawmakers are scum and pretty much ignored all our efforts. So don’t say we all just laid down and allowed it to happen. And I will not argue with you all about this being a liberal haven. We are NOT ALL LIKE THAT however.. So until you live in our shoes, shut your traps. And if I could move, I would. But it’s not an option for some of us so we have to make do with what we have.
December 31, 2013 at 11:10pm
I understand all your comments. This law does STINK to high heaven. But for now it is what it is. There is still a chance to have it over turned however. January 30th there is the first hearing before a Fed. judge here in CT (yes, I’m from CT) If I could venture to enter my view on why many are lining up. I dont own an assault rifle but I did register 2 17 round mags. If I did have an AR, I would probably register it because, well, they already know I have it and if I did not register it, I might as well just put it away. Because if I showed up at a range to use it and there happened to be a state cop there checking rifles…..BAM…instant felon. I loose my permit to own a weapon and possibly face jail time. Pretty much ruining my life. Worth it? Not at all. So enough of the name calling. These folks are very patriotic Americans just trying to survive in this very difficult time without getting thrown in jail. We’re all in this fight together folks. Lets not divide into compliant and non-compliant factions. Happy New Year to all of you and God bless
You forgot one simple little detail - it wont matter if they overturn the law or not because THEY ALREADY HAVE YOUR INFORMATION!!!!!
Think man - think..........
And BTW - if i had one that wasn't registered I sure as he** wouldn't take it to the range........
Well done, sheep.
Boba, Looking back into history for about 100 years, I would say that you and the others should be ready to turn everything in within about a year. I understand that when you bought guns they were registered and all that. You are correct in that statement. I firmly believe that when that "law" was passed that the gun owners should have FLOODED your reps offices and started recalls. Personally, when it happens here in fruitcake California, I intend to send letters, in size 50 type, to the governor, and my rep. saying: NO, NOT EVER... GO TO HE**. Millions of people must stand up for their RIGHTS. If we don't, we are nothing but slaves. Start a recall of all those that passed that "law". That is what you can do, and must do, or next you will be told which approved church you can attend. Now, everybody put on your big-boy pants and stand up, tell them NO.
WRONG! These people are cowards! the majority voted for the liberal fools that voted this into law! If the people of CT would stand like those heros in Co. this line would not be happening!
Of course you and all of them registering your guns will expect the rest of us to follow suit...I completely understand how this plays out...That's why all of you should be fighting it to the death, because that's where you are headed anyway...AND you all don't mind taking the rest of us with you...
"...These folks are very patriotic Americans just trying to survive in this very difficult time without getting thrown in jail..."
What makes you think the state will stop at 'jails' when they come for your guns? You'll be trying to survive in a FEMA gulag where you can all commiserate about following the 'law'.
"...We’re all in this fight together folks..."
You got that right- all you CT 'resistors' will be fighting among each other for the grains of wheat someone dropped from their porridge bowl.
This is when we need to start up militias to protect our rights from the government.
you only go to jail if your too much of a wuss to fight for your rights. The enforcers should end in the morgue, leaving true Americans with their liberty intact.
If everyone here is so heartfelt about defying these laws, then come here and help.
Oh that's right, you're sitting behind a screen talking shit about fellow gun owners instead of actually doing something. Get off your ass and contribute!
This is not a fight. That's the problem. They[CT] are surrendering their 2A rights.
I've said before and I'll say it again, you vote these dumbarses in like NY and NJ and you get what you deserve. They would have arrest me and I would sue the living sh** out of them. When are you noreasterners gonna wake up? pretty soon you will have to have a permit to take a dumb. Please don't bring your liberal arses south and try to change things here.
1055... "...Oh that’s right, you’re sitting behind a screen talking **** about fellow gun owners instead of actually doing something. Get off your ass and contribute!..."
'Fellow gun owners'? Hardly. Get off our ass and contribute to what? A cause you surrendered already? You got yourself into that fix. When you actually resist, then we can talk about getting off our asses.
an unconstitutional law is NO LAW. I'd be the last man in line here only so I could firebomb the records!
Of all the stupid things to say-he is out numbered by the left there-he did not vote them in fools, but the outnumbered in Con will have there day in court. Maybe many courts. If they loose then it's time to rip up their lives and their families lives and move. He can't fight from a jail. Or take care of his family.
Sheep are killed first because they are sheep with not even a set of balls to resist the slaughter. You register it, they come later and confiscate it. There is no such thing as an assault weapon that is not fully automatic. Fools all!!!
Take a vacay to another state & buy from a private owner. Do not say shit about it. Tuck it away for a rainy day & start stockpiling ammo.
The shot heard round the world is coming & we out number them greatly.
Ponder: what would they do is no one complied ?
boba, Happy New Year, coward.
Well if all of you chest pounding "defund the G.O.P.'ers" keep up your assisting the left crap when you "take them to court" in a few yrs Im sure the new judges in there like supreme court justice Howard Dean and/or a cpl of them from the 9th. circuit of appeals will be in there and we will see how they will vote on the issue, considering it passed 5 to 4 the last time it was visited. But WTF its better than having a few RINOS in the party huh? How bad could another decade of progressives at the helm really hurt us right? Silly me.
To 1055 and the rest of you East-Coast quasi-conservatives, RINOs and the "wait for the next election types",
1) I did my part. I moved from an unconstitutional state to one that supports rights.
2) Your state is part of the NE Liberal corridor that is generally disliked out here in Fly-Over Country.
3) your choice is yours, but when they come for your weapons, as they did in New York, you will reap what you sow.
Just like before, selling out to save your own tails.
Where was I? Working with my reps on interstate reciprocity.
Elitist East Coast douches.
You are one poor SOB. If you are so worried about being a felon that you will give up being a Citizen to keep your clean record in the eyes of the false gov't thugs, then you deserve what you get. Personally, I'd rather shoot the person at the registration table between the eyes for being a traitor and wind up on death row than do what you did.
This Is just insane what is going on in MY Country. Its even more insane that more American's can not see what is going on here. This is what a Canadian Reporter has to say to ALL AMERICANS;
You are exactly right SgtB, I believe there are worse things than death and one of them is being a slave. Only ignorant cowards allow themselves to become slaves, I'd rather die and I guarantee one thing, I will no go quietly for these SOBs.
Listen to that..might be a state cop checking firearms..if ther State Police are Oathkeepers.. they should refuse to enforce ANYTHING so blatantly unconstitutional..as so many Sherrifs have..even a soldier in the Military is supposed to Stand Down under such circumstances..and there are MANY circumstances today...that a Peace Officer of 40 yrs ago ..would never have participated in..
if you choose to live in a police state then it's your problem and can't complain, if was me I would get the hell out of dodge.
Jenny their is not enough court time or space to deal with people standing up for their rights. It is an easy process to overload the courts and the cost would be on them if you know the LAW. Every officer that engage sin violating someones RIGHTS could lose their bond and JOBS if a court finds them guilty. Learn to play the process and YOU WIN EVERYTIME.
So in other words you OBEY unconstitutional laws like a good little lemming.I'd bury it for the revolution.
will you so willingly step into the cattle cars and walk to the showers? The progressives love compliant victims.
Happy New Year to you, But I have to vehemently disagree. There are other alternatives to signing up. Nothing wrong with bringing your weapons to another state and worst case . Rent a storage locker in another state. As far as an "assault rifle" What does that mean ? President Bush was assaulted with shoes. So, now do we call all footwear Assault sandals ? You choose to lay down and not fight, that's your right. I have fought for our country overseas and am willing to fight here for the constitution. Good luck with that boot on your neck. With all due respect . This is just the first step in the disarming process ! PLEASE RETHINK YOUR POSISTION. UNITED WE STAND.
"For now it is what it is"? Really? Once you do this you can't undo it! When will folks like you stop complying to this type of rule? You do nothing but uphold the idiotic socialist lawmakers who institute these practices to see just how willing the uneducated really are. Why I have to ask would you continue to live in a state that imposes unconstitutional laws upon it's citizens when you are free to leave said state. The more you comply the more they will make you comply too. The more that leave states like this, the less taxes and voters these state will have. The less voters......the less seats they can have at any lawmakers bench. For the love of God STOP COMPLYING!!!
Boba, not a single person making derogatory comments about you seems to live in CT. Basically they are asking you to get yourself arrested for their entertainment.
Listen up, keyboard heroes. How many of you are out today waving around your ARs with 30 round mags in CT, CA or NY city?
I already know the answer, its "none." Show me the news video of you getting your door kicked in by a SWAT team, you and your crying wife and kids getting cuffed and your house torn apart. Let's see the mug shot of your battered and bruised face. Tell me how you lost your job, then your house, then your wife because she said your guns were more important than your family. Let's see the lawyer's bills and the bankruptcy because you went to jail for 10 years.
That's what you need to expect. So stop asking someone else to stand up for you. Do it yourself or shut up.
@Boba or is it BoBo? You do understand that complying with this law you are giving it legitimacy, your reasoning is so you can take you gun to the range? What if the state reasons that you should not be allowed to own the gun that you registered and they tell you to turn it in? These sheeple are not Patriotic Americans, they are Patriotic AmeriKans comrade. Hahahaha you say lets not divide, really? IF YOU COMPLY WITH TYRANNICAL LAWS you are making it more difficult for the true patriots resisting these progressive laws, YOU ARE BREAKING RANKS from true patriots and should be ridiculed for your unpatriotic sheepish pathetic compliance. So will you wear the star of David if a law is written to identify you as a gun owner in public? We are not in this fight together, if you can not be trusted to have backbone to stand up against this Tyrannical law how can you and your sort be trusted when it really counts? Actions speak louder than words. You keep complying and the rest of us felons will keep resisting.
Everyone of you registering is a cowardly POS.
Pro alliance you write "not a single person making derogatory comments about you seems to live in CT. Basically they are asking you to get yourself arrested for their entertainment." And you call us "keyboard heroes." Your want our doors kicked in by a SWAT team, our spouses crying and our kids getting cuffed, houses torn apart. And in your own words, "That's what you need to expect". We'll, we don't and won't comply to what CT has. And some say we should come there and help? Really? We have no voting rights in that state. We don't look for others to fix the problems we have created. CT voters and those who didn't bother to show up to vote are to blame for their own ills. If this comes to my state. We will take care of it in a different way. But most importantly, it is BECAUSE of liberal, socialist, progressive voters who put these lawmakers in power to inflict those sort of laws that allow swat teams to crash your doors, make your spouses cry and take your homes, that are to blame. They sit in their own stink and when they don't like it, expect others to come and fix it for them. Why aren't all those who live in CT pushing back ? Why do you sallies expect others to come fix your problems?
So in your own words Pro alliance..." Do it yourself or shut up"
We love everyone standing in that line. They're not being called names. It's the guys who put them in that line that concerns us. I pray this doesn't happen in Kentucky. The line would stretch to Utah.
Spoken like a true coward
Boba ... I don't live in CT & so long as I have a choice, I never will ... in fact, I avoid the Northeast & New England for being the cesspools they are ... however, I don't condemn your comments at all; rather, I applaud your reluctant willingness to deal logically with the reality on the ground in your defective & deviant state & region.
A jailed or bankrupted patriot is of little use to those of us who resist the new Leftist tyranny.
Your course of action seems reasonable & wise given the insanity of the situation y'all face.
All sane, patriotic Americans are outraged at the usurpation of our rights & sovereignty by the crazed Left ... some among us, out of frustration lash out at those whose way of dealing with situations beyond their control ... once most of your critics take the time to fairly evaluate your comments they will likely regret attacking you personally.
I live in a relatively free state so I'm not affected by your challenges -- at least for now. As for me & mine, we keep our guns close at-hand --and we will resist further tyranny to our last breath.
Do the best you can with the grim situation you face, brother.
Boba, you say if you had an ar that you would register it because they already know you have it. How is that? You could have sold it a few days after, or lost it, I don't know about Ct but in Kansas a private citizen can sell any gun he owns to someone else. With no paper trail. If they already know you have it then why the need for a registration at all?
The one question I have about this law ( no I have not read it) are the newly registered firearms transferable?
Remember this day when later down the road they decide to outright ban all these weapons and show up at your door demanding you turn them in.
Shame on you. Period.
Once you give something up, it's hard to get it back. period. Should have fought it from the get go. I see it every time when union contracts are negotiated. Once it's gone it's gone. And with the mindset of those drinking from the same cistern as the rest of the sheeple in this country the worse it is going to get. It's like a Plague.
I think it is BOZO (the clown). Not bobo!!!
While I too registered mine, I will be moving to another state as soon as the construction of my new home is complete. The problem as I see it is, even if the new law is found to be unconstitutional, there is no guarantee this info will be destroyed. It is sad that I no longer trust our government, State or Federal. As a veteran, I swore to defend our Constitution, yet our elected officials, if they can read, can't comprehend their meaning and defend them. I see a major storm on the horizon and this is what scares our Liberal politicians.
Sheep or sheepdog? Living in Utah, we enjoy great 2A rights. I have gone to several 2A rallies in and will continue to do so in the future. We must stand united to win the war people. While it would be very difficult to make this decision, I think the other comments are correct. We must fight by not complying to these so called laws that violate our constitutional rights.
Thanks to the couple people who backed me up. And for those of you who resorted to personal attacks, shame on you. I'm glad you live in 2A friendly states. Our reality here is different from yours in regards to the 2A. We have fought tooth and nail to prevent this but unfortunately our lawmakers are scum and pretty much ignored all our efforts. So don't say we all just laid down and allowed it to happen. And I will not argue with you all about this being a liberal haven. We are NOT ALL LIKE THAT however.. So until you live in our shoes, shut your traps. And if I could move, I would. But it's not an option for some of us so we have to make do with what we have.
Felon Smellon! This is not something to be fooled around with. Demand local and state police NOT enforce such laws and demand new politicians. Have the law rescinded. This is a bleeding wound requiring a quick fixing or the victim will be dead very soon.
Boba...You must start today spreading word to fight this with everything in your being....If the people of CT really don't want it then you MUST overwhelm the rulers of your state....It's that or leave....But this needs to be stopped NOW...
NONE COMPLIANCE does not seem to bother the libs so why are you justifying that this is OK?????
You sold your guns you now own zero and well come find them if you have a case other wise bugger off .....why do conservative always seems to justify being sheep while the lawless (libs, prog, democrats acorn etc) have no problem with it....so until massive disobedience makes its point this like a cancer can grow......I'm not name calling just disgusted at all the gun owning metrosexuals...dang well I tried to keep it clean but this is just very frustrating.....we have learned nothing from the Mexifornia registration have we?? so all 57 states have to fall in line and then warm up the gas oven for conservative to grow a pair????? just axing.....
so one question, do you spell Gullible with 1 L or 2? Lets cover this statement -1) If I did have an AR, I would probably register it because, well, they already know I have it and if I did not register it, I might as well just put it away. Answer: Yes, but it should have already been zeroed by now, so you put it away (until your called upon)
2.) Because if I showed up at a range to use it and there happened to be a state cop there checking rifles. Just curious, what justification would a cop have for me to show him ANYTHING!!?? Is this Hitlers Germany we are talking about??? If a cop is asking me for my papers, HE BETTER have a reason, probable cause etc.. because just saying "because I want them" won't be enough..
The more this kind of thing goes on in this country, the more likely of a Revolution that will lead into Civil War. God help us & protect us from the elite politicians who don't want to give up their jobs & benefits.
If everyone resisted, how many police, sheriffs, attorneys judges and jails do they have! If they lock up all that resist, who's going to show up to work?! Wake up! There are more of us than them! We just have to stick together!
I did not register when I was supposed to either and still will not, even though it is a felony. It is not easy and does involve high risk to myself. I have whatched numerous documentary's on the holocaust and other genocidual dictators and vowed never to be disarmed or be lead to a concentration camp with my family that I was supposed to protect in the first place. When you whatch and read real stories of father's with their sons huddling together waiting to be shot, and then be killed, reading that was my line in the sand to me and my family. I will not comply nor go quitely into the night I will stand and fight (Molon Labe) come and take. We need to stand together so stand together in CT and not comply! We owe it to our families and we have a clear Constitutional right to do so regardless of laws passes. I can not say happy new year, because its a very bad way to start a new year with this first step of confiscation by the means of registration being the first step needed. Remember the government has no right's, we the people have right's two the government does not need to know what we own or have a right to ask. GOD bless
B.S. grow a pair and fight for your rights now. You won't get the chance later under a totalitarian government. You think by standing in line and doing and illegal act against the US Constitution is alright. You are part of the problem! You might as well call yourself a progressive. I for one will stand my ground and defend our Constitution from both foreign and domestic terrorists. You bow now and you've already lost the battle. BTW, what makes you think they already know what firearms you own? There is nothing patriotic about giving up your Constitutional rights! Non-compliant factions will survive and prevail. I'm glad to live in a God fearing state like Tennessee. Tell me HOW this will stop people from killing other people, it won't! It's a premeditated first step and you progressives proved their point making it harder for everyone else. Good luck because you're going to need it. We stand divided as logic and common sense is lost on the victim and your futures are predestined.
At some point their must be a stand of civil disobedience. I a charge is filed against a citizen and then in front of a jury of his peers it is determined that the law broken is in fact unconstitutional those peer may render a verdict of not guilty regardless of the written law and then there is precedence for all future cases to be thrown out.
Lined up just like the Jews Were. Scary.

I have a Jack Russell/Corgi mix and when we brought my son home from the hospital, the same thing happened. I have numerous pictures of my son as a baby with some part, if not all parts of my dog in them. What a blessing it has been to have such a great animal in our home. My son is now 8 years old and our dog is still with us. Man’s best friend…..a truer statement is rarely made. Merry Christmas to everyone!
When we had our first (a home birth), our puli (hungarian sheep dog... The ones with dreads that look like a string mop) was right there when my husband caught her. He was never far from her till he passed at 16. He was right there for the other three births as well. His biggest frustra tion, as a herd dog, was trying to keep them all bunched up. Some dogs herd sheep... Ours herded kids ! What a good friend. Ou r current brood of dogs are shitzus, and are such great friends as well. Make my life much brighter every day.
My mother brought me home the first time and set me on a blanket on the floor for our 1 year old Cocker spaniel to smell. From that day until she died at 16 she was my shadow. She protected me, turned me in when I was bad and was my constant loyal companion. Thank you God for you generous gift.
Corgi's are GREAT dogs! The love of my life was a Corgi/Shelti mix who was dumped when he was 8 weeks old. This is my second Christmas without Scruffy & I pray I will see him in Heaven. Still cry every day over his loss.
My folks bought a dachshund in 1957 while we were stationed at Camp Bender, Japan. I was 10. Maggie and I bonded to the point that 1971 my mom asked me to send her one of my dirty t-shirts. Seems like Maggie hollowed every night while I was in country. The t-shirt helped calm her down.

You beat me to the punch Rangerskippy! Before I even started to read the article I noticed the grip that guy was using. Not very smart of him.
March 26, 2013 at 12:00pm
I have a 2000 Honda Accord that I’d be willing to sell for 1700 Scooby Snacks………anyone? No?
March 5, 2013 at 1:36pm
awww, come on. CT isn’t that bad…….remember, we have the oldest amusement park in the country AND the Gov. is building us a brand new busway from New Britain to Hartford! Now all we need is a busway from New Britain to Lake Compounce and we’re set! Isn’t communism great! (comment dripping with sarcasm)
February 27, 2013 at 9:49am
I hope I never do have to use my 9mm Beretta INSIDE my house! I fired 3 shots OUTSIDE one time without hearing protection and my ears have still not stopped ringing! I can only imagine what it would sound like with the sound bouncing off the walls of my hallway or something. Maybe someone could chime in that has had to fire on someone inside their house and let us know what it’s like. I don’t know if a lot of shooters are considering what the sound of a round going off a couple feet (or closer) to your ear sounds like and your ability to continue shooting accurately after that first shot. I’m sure it’s not like it is in the movies. Most of us have those big earmuffs on shooting at a paper target that is not moving or shooting back at you. Hardly a real world situation where you get up at 3am to the sound of someone breaking into your house. You stumble out of bed, wipe the crust out of your eyes, fumble around for your weapon, (hopefully you have a flashlight or can see well in the dark), find the guy, aim correctly, squeeze off the first round….and after the shock to your system as to how loud that first round was, be able to fire a second round accurately. With any luck the guy will jump out a window after realizing he’s being shot at! Then, go and get that big bottle of Advil to take care of the headache. This post was WAY longer than I intended it to be!
February 27, 2013 at 9:23am
I appologize if I misread your post but they are not outlawed in CT. They cannot have an adjustable stock, bayonet lug, or a flash hider. But you can own a state compilant AR in CT.
February 14, 2013 at 7:38am
WOW. I have been wrestling with this as well the last few days and to see this article really amazes me. I really needed to hear this as I can spend lots of time looking at different guns on the internet and the amount of money I have wasted on buying and selling guns just so I could try them out is shamefull. This is my heart check. Thank you God for helping me see what I need to change in my life.
January 18, 2013 at 5:24pm
Don’t worry, we won’t be allowed to own one anyway. It probably holds 7 maybe 8 rounds. Us civilians can’t be trusted with such firepower. Get a Sig Scorpion 1911. It looks pretty much the same to me.
November 14, 2012 at 9:40am
Folks…this is very simple. There are two different sets of beliefs.Athiests think there is no God,no Satan, no Heaven, and no Hell. So when they die, there is nothing. So they are safe.(according to them) Now, true Christians believe the opposite. So Heaven is waiting them after they die. So it comes down to which is true. If the Athiest veiw is true, we are all safe (because there is nothing). There is no punishment for NOT being an Athiest. BUT, if the Christian view is true, the Athiests are screwed…because there IS punishment for being a non believer. True Christians are safe either way. So why do I keep saying “true” Christians? I’m glad you asked. Just because you CALL yourself a Christian, does not mean you are one. You can’t just show up at church once a week or once in a while and expect God to just open the gates wide for you. Follow and obey Jesus and you’ll see your reward.
March 1, 2012 at 10:13am
Jeez…it isn’t even a good lookin’ dog…..Get a poodle or a collie or something. I’m sorry ,Lord. That was wrong. My brain/hand filter is not working this morning.
