Some Connecticut police refusing to enforce AW law
[UPDATE: several commentors have noted they cannot find any Connecticut Peace Officers Association online... nor can I. I've emailed the person who emailed me on this, asking for info. His indication had been that the article (which he attached) would be online in a few days at http://ezinearticles.com/. Until he responds, or does not respond, I'd treat this as a possible hoax. I would have done more digging except that when I posted I was on a plane, as part of 4,000-miles-in-36-hours trip.]
[FURTHER UPDATE: Actually, update to an update. I was absolutely sure this was a hoax and there was no story, when the story appeared online. I'd checked with ezinearticles.com, and they'd said the author was not enrolled to post there -- I guess they were wrong. Now, this doesn't cure the problem that the CPOA can't be found, but at least there is a story.]
[UPDATED UPDATE: one of the commentors, down toward the very end, notes there is a Wikipedia article on the CPOA ... but it was created this afternoon, by the author of the article. Yep, the article may be real but it's a hoax.]
Tyler Jackson has emailed me an interesting story, soon to appear online (I'll link to it once it does)-- the gist is that the head of the Connecticut Peace Officers' Assn has released an open letter stating that the police will not "be party to the oppression of the people of the state by enforcing an unconstitutional law." So far 250 LEOs have cosigned the letter.
The CT law required the registration of AWs, with a deadline for doing so, and it appears that the vast majority of AW owners have simply refused. So now the State faces massive resistance, and some portion, perhaps a large portion, of police refusing to enforce.
