Connecticut man jailed for defending himself instead of running away

Via ctpost:

A Bridgeport man who was assaulted by three juveniles while he was at work in Norwalk will have to spend 18 months in jail for stabbing one of the attackers.

“I was defending myself,” Jeffrey Sumpter, 21, told Judge John Blawie on Monday morning at the Stamford courthouse when he was sentenced for stabbing one of the males in the leg last October. Blawie told Sumpter that he understood and believed his version of events, but he said he had to follow the letter of the law.

Sumpter, dressed in a white prison jumpsuit with short sleeves, did not reply. His public defender Howard Ehring said unlike a state like Florida, which has a law allowing its residents to stand their ground, Connecticut law requires Sumpter to retreat from the beating he was given at the Dunkin’ Donuts where he worked. After being assaulted inside the coffee shop, Sumpter ran outside and stabbed one of the men.

Under Connecticut law victims cannot use deadly force if they’re able to retreat.  Pathetic.  It was 3 on 1, and one of the attackers had shotgun shells.  Where are we that you can get thrown in jail for defending yourself in a 3 on 1 attack.  On the other side of the coin, 27 states have “stand your ground” laws that allow you to defend yourself.  The fact that this has to be a law at all is ridiculous.

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker signs gun seizure bill

RINO Charlie Baker has signed a bill for temporary gun confiscation with no due process.  Via Daily Caller:

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker signed a bill on Tuesday allowing for temporary gun confiscation without any due process in Massachusetts.

Bill H4670 enables the police, a family or household member, including roommates, relatives or significant others, to remove firearms, firearm identification cards and ammunition from any individual deemed to be a danger to oneself or others.

Surrendered goods can be confiscated for up to one year, with the ability to renew the order, but an individual can try to appeal the ruling.

In a time where there has been increased violence and threats to conservatives, for an alleged conservative to sign this bill is an absolute affront to our personal liberties.  The feral left has ramped up their attacks significantly since traitor Maxine Waters called for increased harassment to President Trump’s officials is unforgivable.  Consider for a second the fact that now in Boston you could have a feral SJW roommate, and on a whim she could decide to come into your room and take your gun away because her sick beliefs make it feel warranted.  Maybe she feels her safe space has been invaded.  You then have  to fight in court for potentially years to get it back.  Absolutely insane.  The second amendment has been rigorously attacked for decades now.  A new Supreme Court Justice needs to be appointed quickly, and they should repeal every law that chips away at our 2A rights.  It’s gone way too far.  Even mental background checks, do you feel like you can fully trust a professional’s opinion anymore?  What if that professional is a devout leftist and SJW?  Do you really think they could judge the situation dispassionately and objectively?  Neither do I.

The Kennedy retirement should bode well for 2A preservation

There are a lot of issues to discuss regarding Justice Kennedy’s upcoming retirement, which we will over the course of the next few weeks.  Justice Kennedy was a moderate conservative and often times the swing vote in very close cases, including those for gay rights and abortion.  With him gone, many on the feral left are freaking out.  Another area, which has been largely ignored by the Supreme Court in general, is the issue of gun control.  Via the Huffington Post:

There has been a lot of speculation about why the five court conservatives, including Kennedy, have not reviewed any of the lower court cases upholding various gun restrictions. The most common theory is that neither the four conservatives other than Kennedy, nor the four liberals, knew how Kennedy was going to vote.

Adam Winkler, a UCLA law professor, and author of one of the most important books ever written on the Second Amendment, Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in Americaspeculated in 2014 that among the other justices that “there must be some concern about the way Kennedy is going to go” in future gun cases. Well, that concern is now moot.

And:

The Supreme Court has only ruled in favor of an individual right to own guns in two decisions, and in neither one did Kennedy write his own opinion. He did, however, make up one of the five votes in both 2008’s D.C. v. Heller, and 2010’s McDonald v. City of Chicago. Both cases invalidated complete bans on possessing handguns in each city. The Supreme Court has not, however, returned to the Second Amendment since McDonald was decided, despite thousands of lower court cases wrestling with the balance between the right to keep and bear arms and public safety.

So it looks like he begrudgingly upheld 2A in two cases, didn’t write an opinion piece on either, and the Supreme Court was afraid to review anymore 2A cases because they weren’t sure how he would vote.  This is all a moot point now with him gone.  President Trump will surely nominate someone much more conservative and pro 2A.  And with the changes to how one can be nominated by a simple majority rather than 60 votes, so long as President Trump nominates before any potential changes at the mid-term elections he should be able to get in whomever he wants.

This bodes well for America.  Pro-Western men need to constantly remind themselves that we are dealing with children on the left.  You need to drag them kicking and screaming to truth and what is right.  Treat them how you would treat your children.  You wouldn’t let your children stay up all hours of the night and eat candy just because they wanted to.  No.  The same goes here.  Even though they will not like it, the changes we are trying to make will benefit them just as much as they benefit us.

This is another reason I abhor “never-Trumpers” like little Ben Shapiro.  Supreme Court Justice nomination was the most important election issue of all, with immigration reform a close second.  With President Trump’s nomination this will cement a majority conservative Supreme Court for decades to come.  Especially considering one or two other leftist Justices will likely be retiring soon, it is game over at the Supreme Court level for some time.  And that is great for everyone.
