Threats to CT Police Escalate Following CT Cop’s Gun Confiscation Comments

“The cops are having the threats…. they are scared,” he told us.

According to Cinque, Officer Joseph Peterson, who made comments in interaction on Facebook while off duty that he would “give my left nut to bang down your door and come for your gun…” has been placed on 24-hour guard due to threats on his life. This information came directly from Police Chief Kevin Halloran.

Connecticut Gun Confiscations

Tyranny vs Liberty - Connecticut


Viewing the comments I'd like to lay a rumor to rest

This cop doesn't have a set with which to offer up a left nut.

To regain control - The citizens' Grand Jury

In the past, common law grand juries were widespread - not the tool of prosecutors. The peoples' grand jury needs to return.
See: http://www.nationallibertyalliance.org/

"DUTY OF THE "COMMON LAW" GRAND JURY - If anyone’s unalienable rights have been violated, or removed, without a legal sentence of their peers, from their lands, home, liberties or lawful right, we [the twenty-five] shall straightway restore them. And if a dispute shall arise concerning this matter it shall be settled according to the judgment of the twenty-five Grand Jurors, the sureties of the peace. MAGNA CARTA, JUNE 15, A.D. 1215, 52."

We can only hope this little fire grows

This is exactly what this whole RP thing was about. A revolution of love - not one of violence. Using resolve and education to make a difference.

This one simple slip by this officer could be a game changer for us here in CT. People need to understand the dynamic here. This is not some big inner city department that kicks doors in everyday. This is also not some podunck backwoods department.
Branford is a middle to upper middle class shoreline community. They don't have violent crime. They dont have murders and drug houses full of gang members. They have well to do people with big houses, nice cars and boats.
Cops in this town are supposed to give tickets to outsiders. They are supposed to make sure out of towners are not using their beach. They are supposed to show up at the memorial day parade and be all American apple pie good guys.
Not many residents in a town like this in CT are going to be happy with the thought of a cop kicking in any doors for any reasons in their town.

What we need to do is support Mr. Cinque in his resolve. We need to keep the pressure on the Branford PD to do the right thing.
Mr Cinque has stated he wants them to apologize to the citizens, to mandate classes on the Constitution and for them to commit to NOT enforcing this law.

If we can get this to play out - this could be a better victory than we ever could have hoped for in court.
And it can happen people. This CAN change the game.
If the pressure on the PD keeps up, and Cinque stands strong - it is just the right combination to force someone's hand.
Sign the commitment to not enforce the law and CT freedom gets a huge boost.
Refuse to sign it - and you have made it clear that doors will be kicked in - which will only cause the boiling pot to spill over.

Again - people in Branford dont want doors kicked in - its bad for real estate values, bad for school ratings, bad for tourism in the summer. Its not very quintessential New England beach town.

I'm Proud

Wow, I'm so proud!

Typically, cops can routinely violate an individual's liberty and the establishment system could care less about the individual and almost always backs up the cop. Peaceful individuals have been killed, or otherwise had their lives ruined because of the drug war and the militarization of police. Yet, the establishment media could give two shits. But in this instance, we're actually seeing a very rare, unabashed response to a cops stance against our foundational right of self-protection.

It's a thing of beauty. If the cop is that afraid then resign and go be a plumber or something useful.

"Police" shouldn't exist - Sheriffs only

Solution: 2nd Amdt: "militia.. necessary to security of Free..."


"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Doesn't mention "police" or "cops" (constables on patrol)...

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

Very informative

Thanks for sharing



They are supposed to be public SERVANTS

But they THINK that they are the ones who should be in control of us. They have no idea who they are trying to push around because we are a very strong force to not try and mess with.

This is OUR PLACE!

Offering a body part he doesn't use is no great sacrifice

If he put his mouth or ass on the line it might be meaningful, as he probably puts plenty of mileage on those.

I don't often say this but you are wrong

You could only be correct if he had a pair to begin with. :P


Well said.

I don't see an apology forthcoming

That will get the prerequisite approval nod because I don't see any LEOs actually siding with the constitution these days.

They might try doing a moot apology without John to do an end around, if they can., on the issue.

And it's damn right they are scared, and about time too. Their GD gun safety laws and the ilk have caused great harm and fear in the people. Now it's their turn, you reap as you sow, don't look to me for sympathy.

shouldn't threaten his life,

I repeat myself, you are wrong

You could only be right if he had a set to begin with. :P

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

This story doesn't

pass the smell test. I call BS on this too.

Ron Swanson

Not sure what you are talking about

this is not BS - this is on the local news stations. Not sure the validity of the website the poster linked to. But the local channell 8 affiliate is covering this - and they have it about the same as the posters link.

Complete BS

This lying chief is trying to get back on the sympathetic side of the public. The realize they have over stepped and this is their psy-op.

People are not stupid enough nor are gun owners going to call police to make threats-that is playing right into the hands of the state.

Lies from the police thieves.


Liberty = Responsibility

I dont think so - I live here - and this is water cooler talk

people who dont follow politics are talking.
And I can tell you - people are pissed.

Even those that dont give a crap about guns are not happy. For a cop to make such a statement on facebook is over the top.

You also have to understand - and I guess I should make a post - but - Branford is a middle to upper middle class shoreline community here in CT.
This is not some inner city beat cop saying this. This is a town that probably has not had a violent crime in decades. Cops in these towns are not supposed to talk and act like that. They are supposed to go to parades and make people feel good. They are supposed to keep residents from out of town off their beach. They are supposed to make sure traffic is handled during the fireworks over the marina.

They are NOT supposed to be talking about giving away nuts to kick in local residents doors. I am telling you - people would be appauled if the local cops kicked in any door for any reason. They are not supposed to act like that - that behavior is for "those" people - you know - those people from the low income areas - not their idyllic New England town.
And I assure you - the chief IS taking it seriously because they will throw his ass out in two seconds. These are educated people who pay very high taxes and they expect a certain level of professionalism - no - they demand it.
LOL- I would put a 100 dollars that the chief has already been asked by more than one resident if that is a department dog - and that will be coming up at the next budget meeting.

Don't doubt anything you

posted however being angry and talking about it among each other is still a long way from calling the police and threatening them.
Calling the police and sharing your frustration and anger is not a threat. Sorry if I am being obstinate but I don't believe in any city you can call the police and threaten their lives or saftey and they will respond by standing down.

I just can't buy it until I hear specific people say I called and said I will do X to anyone that try's to grab my guns and that includes you officer. Thatis more than sharing anger.

Thank you for the response it was very informative,


Liberty = Responsibility

I know Branford very well and you've described it accurately...

...in the several posts you've made on it. Though I'm sure the cops there have kicked in a few doors of some teenager for token drug raids here and there. Nothing like what they will be dealing with if they continue to push this thing. Branford has some not-so-rich parts, and right next to East Haven so it has a fair population size and is near a population center. But you are still correct in everything you said and I agree with your points.

I don't believe the cops in CT, or anywhere for that matter are that smart, or that moral so I wouldn't count on a good amount of them NOT backing this thing all the way though.

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

I have to disagree. We have a

I have to disagree. We have a lot of stupid people out there that would pick up a phone and make threats like that. Most laws are made in response to stupid people doing stupid things and ruining it for the rest of us.

thats great!

they should continue until they run him out of town. F that pos, he deserves every bit of it.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy


These law enforcement and corrupt government pussies *should* be afraid.

What would the Founders do?

deacon's picture

well now

Police protecting themselves,can I take a stab in the dark and say,
I bet they get protected with them arms they are trying to get rid of
Keep the heat on them,crank it up,they will have no choice but to either follow through,or change their minds,My money is on them changing their minds.
cops first and foremost want to go home at the end of the day,and NOT knowing whats on the other side of the door waiting for them will give them pause.

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Exactly. As long as everyone

Exactly. As long as everyone holds firm on this the cops are going to have their hands tied. Public opinion is changing sharply toward gun ownership and if cops start kicking in doors in CT there is going to be a massive national backlash.

This whole Liberty vs Tyranny thing invariably comes closer to a head. As they say, "Shit is about to get real" but that is a necessary part of the revolutionary process. Hopefully the ideological battle is won to stave off too much physical violence.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
