EPA's Wood-Burning Stove Ban Has Chilling Consequences For Many Rural People

http://www.forbes.com/sites/larrybell/2014/01/29/epas-wood-burning-stove-ban-has-chilling-consequences-for-many-rural-people/

1/29/2014 @ 8:00AM

It seems that even wood isn’t green or renewable enough anymore. The EPA has recently banned the production and sale of 80 percent of America’s current wood-burning stoves, the oldest heating method known to mankind and mainstay of rural homes and many of our nation’s poorest residents. The agency’s stringent one-size-fits-all rules apply equally to heavily air-polluted cities and far cleaner plus typically colder off-grid wilderness areas such as large regions of Alaska and the American West.

While EPA’s most recent regulations aren’t altogether new, their impacts will nonetheless be severe. Whereas restrictions had previously banned wood-burning stoves that didn’t limit fine airborne particulate emissions to 15 micrograms per cubic meter of air, the change will impose a maximum 12 microgram limit. To put this amount in context, EPA estimates that secondhand tobacco smoke in a closed car can expose a person to 3,000-4,000 micrograms of particulates per cubic meter.

Most wood stoves that warm cabin and home residents from coast-to-coast can’t meet that standard. Older stoves that don’t cannot be traded in for updated types, but instead must be rendered inoperable, destroyed, or recycled as scrap metal.

It's in the proposal stages now. It won't effect any stove that is being used now. Also if it becomes law the ban will be in stages and not hurt what is in the pipe line now.

Now, as soon as they can figure out how to ban forest fires, which produce more particulate pollution than all the woodstoves in the US, we'll be golden.

A ban is a ban, just one more freedom taken away by government.

It doesn't become law, that is part of the problem here.

Nobody will ever vote on this, no representation will be applied.

The alphabet soup agencies that rule us have unlimited authority to write any regulations they please.

These regulations, never voted on by any Congress or Senate or signed by any President have the force of law, regardless.

Thanks again Tricky Dick.

Good point, I never thought of that way but I guess you are right. The EPA could make us shave our legs everyday if they wanted to...couldn't they??? Bad example but I think you know what I mean.

The EPA or twenty other regulatory bodies, if they so desired.

Congress, the Senate and the President would all have to be in agreement to pass a law to specifically block the new regulation.

NH people need to get started on this!

Federal wood burning rule prompts rural backlash

http://news.yahoo.com/federal-wood-burning-rule-prompts-rural-backlash-161516423.html

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A federal proposal to clean up the smoke wafting from wood-burning stoves has sparked a backlash from some rural residents, lawmakers and manufacturers who fear it could close the damper on one of the oldest ways of warming homes on cold winter days.

Proposed regulations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency would significantly reduce the amount of particle pollution allowed from the smokestacks of new residential wood-powered heaters.

Wood-burning stoves are a staple in rural homes in many states, a cheap heating source for low-income residents and others wanting to lessen their reliance on gas or electric furnaces. Outdoor models often cost several thousand dollars, but indoor stoves can cost as little as a few hundred dollars and sometimes double as fashionable centerpieces in homes.

Some manufacturers contend the EPA's proposed standards are so stringent that the higher production costs would either force them out of business or raise prices so high that many consumers could no longer afford their products.

"There's not a stove in the United States that can pass the test right now — this is the death knoll of any wood burning," Reg Kelly, the founder of Earth Outdoor Furnaces in Mountain Grove, told Missouri lawmakers during a recent hearing.

More than three dozen Missouri lawmakers have co-sponsored a bill that would symbolically fight back against the EPA by declaring that "All Missourians have a right to heat their homes and businesses using wood-burning furnaces, stoves, fireplaces and heaters."

That's how they keep their jobs!

The first rule of the contracting for projects is the same as the one for construction contracts for public works; that is, NEVER kill the job.

What's a "few whole"? But then a "darn few" of them. How can there be a "darn few" of a "whole". The "whole" of something is all of something...isn't it?

It doesn't become law, that is part of the problem here.

Nobody will ever vote on this, no representation will be applied.

The alphabet soup agencies that rule us have unlimited authority to write any regulations they please.

These regulations, never voted on by any Congress or Senate or signed by any President have the force of law, regardless.

William Wallace,
You said some very important things here that are worth everything.
I think your 1st observation is at the heart of tyranny.
Where it is a question of legitimacy, really not a question of it, but how the illegitimacy of such acts of diktat, (did I just repeat myself?), only have any iota of legitimacy and force of "law" as long as people who fall under it's rule believe it does have legitimacy, no matter how much one thinks it's total bullshit.
By that I'm saying if you accept it it becomes legitimate, but, and this is the crux of sovereign men and ones Liberty, when Freemen defy such rule of men by their act of defiance they place the burden of crisis of legitimacy on tyrants.
Our tyrants, and they are ours, they can not withstand withdrawal of consent. Their power is derived through consent, tacit, passive, and most importantly via peoples ignorance of their own personal sovereign existence.
Resistance to tyranny is the game changer.
Defiance of tyrants forces them to use force instead of relying on the luxury of blind compliance to their diktat.
It is defiance they must escalate against. Without the legitimacy of the idea of rule of law, these tyrants only have the power of force, ultimately violence, they can use to enforce their rule of men.

“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” — Frederick Douglass, August 4, 1857.


It is when this consent Frederick Douglas speaks of defines tyrants, their only methods of coercion and power, is revealed, exposed for what they and their system of totalitarianism truly is. I think two very evil tyrants understood consent and the monopoly of violence very well, and used it to great effect upon people who forgot the past and ignored history. They who forgot took the dirt nap soonest literally by the millions.

It is everything that we who love Liberty understand this is where we are heading.
Our founders understood the evil our species is capable of. They left us a legacy more important than rule of law and amendments written on parchment.
They left us the tools of freedom, the idea we are Freemen and our legitimacy to define each of our lives and our destiny is upstream of everything. That especially applies o our governments and the actors within it running things. It all begins with each of us.

"Collectivism is "the appetite of a self-appointed 'elite' for other people's liberty, property and lives."

Collectivism's timeless appetites for liberty, property and life -- undeniable, insatiable, non-negotiable -- can only be defeated. Fight or die. Resistance is not futile, despite what the little tyrant behind the curtain would have you believe. It is, in fact, the only survival strategy that works with zombies -- communist or not.
-- Mike Vanderboegh


Mike went on to say:
"Tyrants have no problem dealing with people who are willing to die for their principles. They will happily kill them to achieve their goals. Where they fail is with the people who are not only willing to die for their principles but are willing to kill tyrants in righteous self defense of those principles, and their property, liberty and lives."
http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/



Indeed.
It is behind a curtain of lies those such as within the EPA who lay ready to pounce upon our most basic necessities of life, in order to create the ruse of power to impose control over us, using the appearance of legitimacy. Insult to injury is part of this shameful circus of ruling class clowns where we are extorted out of our hard earned wealth to fund this abomination of tyrannical madness. And not A single one of our "elected representatives" in congress with the power of the purse has tried to deny these son of a bitches our funds that enable them not only the largess of inordinate salaries and job security, but the means to shove this crap down our throats. This system is so fucking crazy I think it takes a culture of psychopaths to do this to us. And millions fall for it hook line and sinker.
Just how insane is that?

I think when you grasp your sovereign nature, how no man or entity has this power over you unless you allow it, you become truly free. As the great thinker of Liberty of our time, TL Davis, put it:

"It is not ours to restore the power of the Constitution. It is ours to show them the wrath of America without the protections the Constitution offers them.

Let them restore it to find refuge from us."



To understand the depths of tyrannical depravity our system of republican government has been turned to Adolph Hitler said it well:
"It is convenient to have a system of laws where everyone is a criminal"


Up their arses!
Defy the bastards.
The EPA and the whole lot of them.

There's a mountain in Pennsylvania where the ground is too hot to step on. It's a long-burning coal seam and a boon to tourism. We must ban coal seams before it's too late!

A forest fire in Obama's childhood-home of Indonesia has burned for years and years, nearly encompassing the entire Southwest Pacific island.

It's so broad a fire, it seems to have consumed Obama's passport records.

No one gets a free ride on whats coming my friend.
Looks like events have a momentum all their own.
Such as the law of unintended consequences of the meddlers in our affairs has passed the point of no return.
This runaway train of psychopaths running things couldn't stop even if they wanted to.
We are all in for it. No one gets a free ride. Look at whats happening around the world. people have had enough. Orange revolution in the Ukraine year and a half back, last fall Iceland, folks threw the entire government out cause they had enough of the corruption of those running hings. Egyptians, 7 million folks rose up and threw the islamist muslim brotherhood out, (obama regime proxies), Venezuela is having a revolution, Yugoslavians, against all odds and the entrenched dicktators of the old soviet Nomenklaurer, won their freedom. Defiance is everywhere. The banksters and culture of corruption have gone too far. The culture of police thuggery and the political machine behind it here in Amerika, the unbridled abuse and corruption of our system of fiat, ever increasing centralized control by an omnipotent and arrogant executive power within our government, a "federal reserve" which is neither, but nothing but a cartel of twelve banking families who completely control our economy and through a system of fiat, global politics and hence attempt to control our every actions down to how we wipe our arses. It is the Fabian's agenda writ large. They are trying to destroy the world so they can rule it. All that stands in their way, all that has ever stood in their way, is America, and what she stands for.
As long as Freemen in Liberty exist that shining light on the hill Reagan talked of, thwarts the curtain of darkness and subjugation of freemen they strive to cover God's green Earth with and snuff out resistance tot yranny.
Make no mistake, it is that ever existing 3% of American's, many Free State'rs, who represent the existential threat to the 1 world order psychopaths.
The great secret here is it is a plurality posses legitimacy and power of immense proportions.
A plurality that is beginning to coalesce from a nebulous and fractured culture. Andrew Breitbart said it all: "culture is upstream of politics". Indeed. All politics are local, culture is upstream of politics, but better still, revolution is the upstream source of it all. Doubt that? Just ask the 3% from 1776 what that means.
It's a repeat of what the 3 percent of American Patriots who fought the exact same special interests and their tyranny 2 century's ago, A plurality of people who won against the largest empire in human history, that right there changed the world. The 5000 year leap.
We as ordinary people forgot our past and relinquished our inherent nature as freemen, and into that vacuum stepped those waiting for the opportunity to rule over us for their enrichment and power.
For good or bad we are all in it together. All you can do is prepare best and wisely to protect and defend your loved ones, property, tribe, and inalienable liberty. It is the preservation of civility, the desire to live by it, that separates us from the horde of tyrants vying to rule our lives and rob us of our property and wealth, that leads to greatness and Liberty.

Affirmation to those we love, faith, family, ties that bind and bond of tribe and community is essential. It is essential too if we are to retain civility, some form of the social contract that civility is constructed of, and endure the tribulations and trials on the horizon.

It is the pause before the storm, the breath before the plunge that comes to us. It is here in the land of the free and home of the brave where the hammer of tyranny will strike hardest. Until now we have suffered the tyrants slow imposition of tyranny, the soft creeping implementation, like plucking the goose one feather at a time. They gull us and probe us constantly for weakness and foibles. They have run out of trivial contretemps on our persons and Liberty, not much left but the big ticket items of Liberty and happiness. You see probing attacks daily. It comes a point here covert trespasses an dissimulation's are ineffective. It is only left to fabricate ever larger crisis as a means, false flag events, and huge shiny things to institute the final solution to the Long March.

As you can, prepare by acquiring the basic necessitates of life, as this also lessens fear of an uncertain future and empowers you to effect your future instead of being a victim of it.

There are many ways to do this in common sense practical fashion.
I'd be delighted to share my own prepp's and planning with everyone here.
Maybe we could begin a dedicated thread to it?
Bet you we all could help each other.

An Open Letter To The Men And Women Of The Connecticut State Police

Published on Monday, February 17, 2014

By Sipsey Street Irregular’s Mike Vanderboegh

http://www.ammoland.com/2014/02/an-open-letter-to-the-men-and-women-of-the-connecticut-state-police/#axzz2tuTTjiI4/

{The following letter was sent via email to members of the Connecticut State Police, Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection. There are 1,212 email addresses on the list. There were 62 bounce-backs.}

To the men and women of the Connecticut State Police and the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection:

My name is Mike Vanderboegh. Few of you will know who I am, or even will have heard of the Three Percent movement that I founded, though we have been denounced on the national stage by that paragon of moral virtue, Bill Clinton.

Three Percenters are uncompromising firearm owners who have stated very plainly for years that we will obey no further encroachments on our Second Amendment rights.

Some of you, if you read this carelessly, may feel that it is a threat.

It is not. Three Percenters also believe that to take the first shot in a conflict over principle is to surrender the moral high ground to the enemy. We condemn so-called collateral damage and terrorism such as that represented by the Oklahoma City Bombing and the Waco massacre. We are very aware that if you seek to defeat evil it is vital not to become the evil you claim to oppose.

Thus, though this letter is certainly intended to deal with an uncomfortable subject, it is not a threat to anyone. However, it is important for everyone to understand that while we promise not to take the first shot over principle, we make no such promise if attacked, whether by common criminals or by the designated representatives of a criminal government grown arrogant and tyrannical and acting out an unconstitutional agenda under color of law.

If we have any model, it is that of the Founding generation. The threat to public order and safety, unfortunately, comes from the current leaders of your state government who unthinkingly determined to victimize hitherto law-abiding citizens with a tyrannical law.

They are the ones who first promised violence on the part of the state if your citizens did not comply with their unconstitutional diktat. Now, having made the threat (and placed the bet that you folks of the Connecticut State Police will meekly and obediently carry it out) they can hardly complain that others take them seriously and try by every means, including this letter, to avoid conflict.

Some of you are already working a major case on me, trying to figure out how I may be arrested for violating Conn. P.A. 13-3, which bears the wildly dishonest title of “An Act Concerning Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety.” (What part of “protecting children” is accomplished by sparking a civil war?)

Not only have I personally violated this unconstitutional and tyrannical act by smuggling and by the encouragement of smuggling, defiance and non-compliance on the part of your state’s citizens, but I have further irritated your wannabe tyrant bosses by sending them standard capacity magazines in my “Toys for Totalitarians” program. I further have annoyed them by pointing out — and seeking more evidence of — the existence of Mike Lawlor’s KGB file (as well as his FBI and CIA counter-intelligence files).

In short, I have made myself a nuisance to your bosses in just about every way I could think of. However, their discomfiture reminds me of the wisdom of that great American philosopher of the late 20th Century, Frank Zappa, who said, “Do you love it? Do you hate it? There it is, the way you made it.” Whether you will be able to make a case on me that sticks is, of course, problematic for a number of reasons which I will detail to you in the letter below. I have already done so to your bosses and include the links in this email so that you may easily access them.


But even if you are not working on my case, you will want to pay attention to this letter, because tyrannical politicians in your state have been writing checks with their mouths that they expect you to cash with your blood.

We have moved, thanks to them, into a very dangerous undiscovered country. Connecticut is now in a state of cold civil war, one that can flash to bloody conflict in an instant if someone, anyone, does something stupid. So please pay attention, for Malloy and Co. have put all your asses on the line and are counting on your supine obedience to the enforcement of their unconstitutional diktat.

I apparently first came to your attention with this speech on the steps of your state capitol on 20 April 2013. It was very well received by the audience but virtually ignored by the lapdog press of your state. If I may, I’d like to quote some of the more salient points of it that involve you.

“An unconstitutional law is void.” It has no effect. So says American Jurisprudence, the standard legal text. And that’s been upheld by centuries of American law. An unconstitutional law is VOID.

Now that is certainly true. But the tricky part is how do we make that point when the local, state and federal executive and legislative branches as well as the courts are in the hands of the domestic enemies of the Constitution.

Everyone who is currently trying to take away your right to arms starts out by saying “I support the 2nd Amendment.” Let me tell you a home truth that we know down in Alabama — Barack Obama supports the 2nd Amendment just about as much as Adolf Hitler appreciated Jewish culture, or Joseph Stalin believed in individual liberty. Believe what politicians do, not what they say. Because the lie is the attendant of every evil. . .

Before this year no one thought that other firearms and related items would ever be banned — but they were, they have been. No one thought that the authorities of your state would pass laws making criminals out of the previously law-abiding — but they did. If they catch you violating their unconstitutional laws, they will — when they please — send armed men to work their will upon you. And people — innocent of any crime save the one these tyrants created — will die resisting them.

You begin to see, perhaps, how you fit into this. YOU are the “armed men” that Malloy and Company will send “to work their will” upon the previously law-abiding.


In other words, this law takes men and women who are your natural allies in support of legitimate law enforcement and makes enemies of the state of them, and bully boy political police of you. So you all have a very real stake in what happens next.

But let me continue:
The Founders knew how to answer such tyranny. When Captain John Parker — one of the three percent of American colonists who actively took the field against the King during the Revolution — mustered his Minutemen on Lexington Green, it was in a demonstration of ARMED civil disobedience. . . The colonists knew what to do and they did it, regardless of the risk — regardless of all the King’s ministers and the King’s soldiery. They defied the King. They resisted his edicts. They evaded his laws and they smuggled. Lord above, did they smuggle.

Now we find ourselves in a similar situation. The new King Barack and his minions have determined to disarm us. We must determine to resist them. No one wants a new civil war (except, apparently, the anti-constitutional tyrants who passed these laws and the media toadies who cheer them on) but one is staring us in the face. Let me repeat that, a civil war is staring us in the face. To think otherwise is to whistle past the graveyard of our own history. We must, if we wish to avoid armed conflict, get this message across to the collectivists who have declared their appetites for our liberty, our property and our lives — WHEN DEMOCRACY TURNS TO TYRANNY, THE ARMED CITIZEN STILL GETS TO VOTE.

Just like King George, such people will not care, nor modify their behavior, by what you say, no matter how loudly or in what numbers you say it. They will only pay attention to what you DO. So defy them. Resist their laws. Evade them. Smuggle in what they command you not to have. Only by our ACTS will they be impressed. Then, if they mean to have a civil war, they will at least have been informed of the unintended consequences of their tyrannical actions. Again I say — Defy. Resist. Evade. Smuggle. If you wish to stay free and to pass down that freedom to your children’s children you can do no less than to become the lawbreakers that they have unconstitutionally made of you. Accept that fact. Embrace it. And resolve to be the very best, most successful lawbreakers you can be.

Well, I guess at least some of my audience that day took my message to heart. As Connecticut newspapers have finally begun reporting — “Untold Thousands Flout Gun Registration Law” — and national commentators are at last noticing, my advice to defy, resist and evade this intolerable act is well on the way. The smuggling, as modest as it is, I can assure is also happening. This law is not only dangerous it is unenforceable by just about any standard you care to judge it by. Let’s just look at the numbers mentioned in the Courant story:


By the end of 2013, state police had received 47,916 applications for assault weapons certificates, Lt. Paul Vance said. An additional 2,100 that were incomplete could still come in.

That 50,000 figure could be as little as 15 percent of the rifles classified as assault weapons owned by Connecticut residents, according to estimates by people in the industry, including the Newtown based National Shooting Sports Foundation. No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps as high as 350,000.

And that means as of Jan. 1, Connecticut has very likely created tens of thousands of newly minted criminals — perhaps 100,000 people, almost certainly at least 20,000 — who have broken no other laws. By owning unregistered guns defined as assault weapons, all of them are committing Class D felonies.

“I honestly thought from my own standpoint that the vast majority would register,” said Sen. Tony Guglielmo, R-Stafford, the ranking GOP senator on the legislature’s public safety committee. “If you pass laws that people have no respect for and they don’t follow them, then you have a real problem.”

This blithering idiot of a state senator is, as I warned Mike Lawlor the other day, extrapolating. It is a very dangerous thing, extrapolation, especially when you are trying to predict the actions of an enemy you made yourself whom you barely recognize let alone understand. I told Lawlor:


“You, you silly sod, are extrapolating from your own cowardice. Just because you wouldn’t risk death for your principles, doesn’t mean there aren’t folks who most certainly will. And, not to put too fine a point on it, but folks who are willing to die for their principles are most often willing to kill in righteous self-defense of them as well. You may be ignorant of such people and their ways. You may think that they are insane. But surely even you cannot be so clueless that, insane or not from your point-of-view, such people DO exist and in numbers unknown. This is the undiscovered country that you and your tyrannical ilk have blundered into, like clueless kindergarteners gaily tap-dancing in a well-marked mine field. The Founders marked the mine field. Is it our fault or yours that you have blithely ignored the warnings? If I were a Connecticut state policeman I would be wondering if the orders of a possible KGB mole throwback were worth the terminal inability to collect my pension. Of course, you may be thinking that you can hide behind that “thin blue line.” Bill Clinton’s rules of engagement say otherwise.

The odds are, and it gives me no particular satisfaction to say it, is that someone is going to get killed over your unconstitutional misadventures in Connecticut. And if not Connecticut, then New York, or Maryland, or California or Colorado. And once the civil war you all apparently seek is kicked off, it would not be — it could not be — confined to one state.”

This is not a threat, of course. Not the personal, actionable threat that you may claim. It ranks right along with -- no, that’s wrong, IT IS EXACTLY LIKE – an ex-con meeting me in the street and pointing to my neighbor’s house saying, “Tonight I am going to break in there, kill that man, rape his wife and daughters and steal everything that he is, has, or may become.” I warn him, “If you try to do that, he will kill you first. He may not look like much, but I know him to be vigilant and perfectly capable of blowing your head off.” That is not a threat from me. It is simply good manners. Consider this letter in the same vein. I am trying to save you from yourself.

For, like that common criminal, you have announced by your unconstitutional law and your public statements in favor of its rigorous enforcement that you have a tyrannical appetite for your neighbors’ liberty, property and lives. It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see that this policy, if carried to your announced conclusion, will not end well for anybody, but especially for you.

Now let’s examine those numbers in the Courant story. You know the size of the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection. Wikipedia tells us that “CSP currently has approximately 1,248 troopers, and is headquartered in Middletown, Connecticut. It is responsible for protecting the Governor of Connecticut, Lieutenant Governor of Connecticut, and their families.”

There are but 1,212 email addresses listed on the state website to which this email is going, which presumably includes everyone including secretaries, receptionists, file clerks, technicians, etc.

Now, how many shooters for raid parties you may find among that one thousand, two hundred and forty eight that Wikipedia cites, or whatever number will be on the payroll when something stupid happens, only you know for sure. I’ll let you do the counting. They are daunting odds in any case, and as you will see, they get more daunting as we go down this road that Malloy and Company have arranged for you.


(By the way, don’t forget to subtract those on the Green Zone protective details, for your political masters will certainly see their survival as your mission number one.)

So, how many folks would your superiors be interested in seeing you work their will upon? And of these, how many will fight regardless of cost?

Let’s assume that there are 100,000 non-compliant owners of military pattern semi-automatic rifles in your state. I think it is a larger number but 100,000 has a nice round ring to it.

Let us then apply the rule of three percent to that number — not to the entire population of your state, not even to the number of firearm owners, but just to that much smaller demonstrated number of resistors. That leaves you with at least 3,000 men and women who will shoot you if you try to enforce this intolerable act upon them.

Of course you will have to come prepared to shoot them. That’s a given. They know this. So please understand: THEY. WILL. SHOOT. YOU. (In what they believe is righteous self defense.)

Now, if any of them follow Bill Clinton’s rules of engagement and utilize the principles of 4th Generation Warfare, after the first shots are fired by your raid parties, they will not be home when you come to call. These people will be targeting, according to the 4GW that many of them learned while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, the war makers who sent you. This gets back to that “when democracy turns to tyranny, the armed citizenry still gets to vote.” One ballot, or bullet, at a time.

This is all hypothetical, of course, based upon the tyrants’ appetites for these hitherto law-abiding citizens’ liberty, property and lives as well as upon your own willingness to enforce their unconstitutional diktat. And here’s where you can do something about it. The first thing you have to realize is that the people you will be targeting do not view you as the enemy. Indeed, you are NOT their enemy, unless you choose to be one.

Again, an unconstitutional law is null and void. Of course you may if you like cling to the slim fact that a single black-robed bandit has ruled the Intolerable Act as constitutional in Shew vs. Malloy, but that will not matter to those three percent of the resistors – your fellow citizens – whom you target. They no longer expect a fair trial in your state in any case, which leaves them, if they wish to defend their liberty, property and lives, only the recourse of an unfair firefight. So to cite Shew vs. Malloy at the point of a state-issued firearm to such people is, well, betting your life on a very slender reed.

Thus, my kindly advice to you, just as it was to Lawlor, is to not go down that road. You are not the enemy of the people of Connecticut, not yet. The politicians who jammed this law down the peoples’ throats are plainly flummoxed by the resistance it has engendered. In the absence of a definitive U.S. Supreme Court decision do you really want to risk not being able to draw your pension over some politician’s insatiable appetite for power?

There are many ways you can refuse to get caught up in this. Passive resistance, looking the other way, up to and including outright refusal to execute what is a tyrannical law that a higher court may yet find unconstitutional and therefore null and void. Do you really want to have to kill someone enforcing THAT? Just because you were ordered to do so? After Nuremberg, that defense no longer obtains. (You may say, “Well, I’m just a secretary, a clerk, you can’t blame me for anything.” Kindly recall from Nuremberg one other lesson: raid parties cannot break down doors unless someone like you prepares the list in advance. In fact, you have at your keyboard and in your databases more raw, naked power than any kick-in-the-door trooper. And with that power comes moral responsibility. Adolf Eichmann didn’t personally kill anyone. But he darn sure made up the lists and saw to it that trains ran on time. When the first Connecticut citizen (or, God forbid, his family) is killed as a result of your list-making, do you think that because you didn’t pull the trigger that gives you a moral pass?)

So I call on you all, in your own best interest and that of your state, to refuse to enforce this unconstitutional law. There are a number of Three Percenters within the Connecticut state government, especially its law enforcement arms. I know that there have been many discussions around water-coolers and off state premises about the dangers that this puts CT law enforcement officers in and what officers should do if ordered to execute raids on the previously law-abiding.

You have it within your power to refuse to initiate hostilities in an American civil war that would, by its very nature, be ghastly beyond belief and would unleash hatreds and passions that would take generations to get over, if then.

Please, I beg you to understand, you are not the enemy, you are not an occupying force — unless you choose to violate the oath that each of you swore to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. For their part, the men and women who will be targeted by your raids took an identical oath. Can you think of anything more tragic than brother killing brother over some politician’s tyrannical appetite?


I can’t. The future — yours, mine, our children’s, that of the citizens of Connecticut and indeed of the entire country — is in YOUR hands.

At the very least, by your refusal you can give the courts time to work before proceeding into an unnecessary civil war against your own friends, neighbors, perhaps even family members, on the orders of a self-anointed elite who frankly don’t give a shit about you, your life, your future or that of your family. They wouldn’t pass these laws if they thought that they would have to risk the potential bullet that their actions have put you in the path of. They count on you to take that bullet, in service of their power and their lies. Fool them. Just say no to tyranny. You are not the enemy. Don’t act like one.

Sincerely,
