What makes this a news story is; A) it is in Kommiecticut, and B) it is in a town west of the CT river. The entire eastern (and mostly suburban/rural) part of the state is more heavily armed than anyone would care to admit. Except for the city of New London, violent crime is not a frequent occurrence, because the bad guys know they would have a much lower life expectancy.
...and because there aren't cities like New Haven, Bridgeport, and Stamford.

What surprises me is that the state I currently reside in (I don’t say “live” because I hate it here and want to GTFO as soon as possible), Kommiecticut, is as high up the list as it is. I would have thought #49 easily.

Precisely why I ignore my company’s policy and carry at work all the time. Concealed in my holster, it harms no one, and since I do not work in the office, they may only find out about it if I have to use it. It’s just a job, and frankly I don’t care much for it anyway.

@salvawhore: Add to that having incumbents that act like Santa Claus with the taxpayer’s money and give the goodies to totally uninformed voters….then you’re REALLY HARD TO BEAT!

…..and Boston, and NYC, and Detroit, and Baltimore, and Newark, and San Francisco, and D.C., etc. etc. etc.
I am a CT Patriot and a member of the Armed Civil Disobedience. Their unconstitutional, intolerable acts are rendered USELESS by the non-compliance on a grand scale (85% in CT and 90% in NY). This renders it ALL NULL & VOID!
Little Barry can stomp his feet and throw his tantrums, it is all meaningless to those of us willing to obey The Constitution, not a despot wannabe.

As a CT Patriot living behind enemy lines and heavily involved in the Armed Civil Disobedience of non-compliance, I simply do not comply with any 2nd Amendment infringements. Therefore, I carry EVERYWHERE, especially in “Gun Free Kill-Zones”
No one will ever know I am carrying unless I have to dispose of a bad guy. Oh sure, I may end up prosecuted and in jail, but I will be alive to tell the tale. Then when I get out, I’ll just get a firearm on the street with a missing serial number and then I’ll really be under the radar. [end sarcasm]

Is it just me, or is posting a viewing window of a “Private Video” in a “news story” just STUPID!
It worked earlier today. They must have linked to someone's server who got overloaded and took it down.

Is it just me, or does the guy in his mug shot look like he had a run in with……
“GOLD FINGAH”…..wah wah wah!

This is why I ALWAYS try to sit in those seats. If they think they are going to hold me hostage on a runway for several hours with no food or working restroom, they are sadly mistaken. At hour 2 I start verbal protests. Exactly at hour 3, my window exit door lands on the runway, and I announce, “Now you WILL take us back to the terminal!”
Sure, I am probably headed for jail after that. So be it….the price of teaching them a lesson about how FREE CITIZENS act against tyranny I guess.
"Exactly at hour 3, my window exit door lands on the runway, and I announce, “Now you WILL take us back to the terminal!”"
...where you'll promptly be arrested. (Not saying I don't agree with your sentiment)

I have a better idea…..how about “Tap to Toilet”, where an in home water reclamation system could filter, store, and pump grey water to be used to operate toilets, water lawns, etc.? I would think such a system could cut home water use without drastic use restrictions. I have a well and a septic system at my house, 500 feet of soil and rock is a great filtration system.

I was involved in the local boy scout troop for several years, and was very unhappy with the gay scout change, but stayed for the boys. After a recent Eagle Scout project debacle, I resigned and ended all associations with the BSA. Now I have absolutely no reason to go back. Too bad, because I did enjoy my time there.

Meh….nothing but re-arranging the chairs on the deck of a sinking Titanic. My brothers and sisters in NY need to realize they too, are living behind enemy lines. They must continue to dismiss, evade, ignore, deceive, and smuggle to nullify their state’s unconstitutional and intolerable acts. The non-compliance rates with that P.O.S. SAFE Act are near 90%, and here in Kommiecticut in reference to our own intolerable unconstitutional acts, it is around 85%. Threats of harsh enforcement have been nothing but bluster, because they really do not know what to do. Most of the arrests for firearms violations have been of criminals in the commission of a crime, not peaceable (non-compliant) citizens. They know if they were to start trying to crack down on suspected unregistered gun and magazine owners, IT WILL BE A WAR, and the body counts on both sides would rival 9-11. And if you think such a war would be limited to just the citizens of CT or NY, look at what happened at the Bundy ranch in Nevada, or what is going on right now with the miners in Oregon. Patriots from across the nation would come to fight traitors and tyrants alike.
I am a proud CT Patriot behind enemy lines, in TOTAL non-compliance with our unconstitutional acts. The soil of our once great state thirsts for the blood of the tyrants, and I am more than willing to spill it.
Right? Give me that son. Keep your mouth shut and it's Dairy Queen on the way home. Deal?
Yeah, but if you ever got caught with that thing? Whoooo boy! Hello prison!

Until the ALL the current traitors that believe they rule over us dance the “Executioner’s Jig” at the end of a rope, nothing will change.
I have plenty of rope.

I bet their balls would drop right into place when their collective necks snap at the end of a noose reserved for TRAITORS!

The one and only time I was to attend mandatory “Diversity Training” at a former employer, I had to go out on an emergency service call and missed it. They kept after me to reschedule, so I answered them with a letter to the vice president of operations. The letter told them how stupid and backwards diversity training is. I reminded them of Dr. Martin Luther King’s teachings to ignore the color of skin (as well as religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc) and focus on the person’s character, knowledge, and skills to do a particular job. I told them that the way diversity works, is you divide people up in their respective “groups” and then count them in the group. Then you can either proclaim “look how many BLANKS we have” or “we need to seek out more BLANKS.”
Needless to say, I was branded a “nut job” (for this and a couple of other “disagreements”), and while I can’t be sure I had anything to do with it, mandatory company wide diversity training never came up again.
White privilege is a figment of the imagination of the race hustler industry and a complicit biased media.

What is the test of whether or not you own property including your own body…..can you keep it? Can you sell it? Can you destroy it?
The answer is no, you do not “own” your body because government regulates it. If you truly owned your body, you could sell a spare kidney for whatever the free market could net you. You could defend it by any means. You could destroy it with drugs or alcohol, or commit suicide. Your body would truly be yours to do with as you pleased.
For this reason, I am not an organ donor. I think that after a person dies, their estate should be able to sell their organs to the donor market.
