‘LOOKS LIKE WEIMAR GERMANY’: THE VIRAL PHOTO OUT OF CONNECTICUT THAT’S GIVING SOME GUN OWNERS CHILLS

A now-viral photo showing a long line of Connecticut residents waiting to register their guns and ammo is circulating across the Internet — and it’s sending chills down the backs of some gun owners.

Connecticut gun owners are rushing to register certain firearms and ammunition that will be considered illegal contraband in the new year.

Under a wide-ranging gun control law passed after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, they have until Tuesday to submit the paperwork with the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.

“Holy crap. Looks like Weimar Germany,” Twitter user @votermom said of the photo.

“Another disgusting picture from Connecticut ...men waiting in line to register guns with the government,” user @chipwoods commented.

“First, they came for the guns,”@PaulRReyes added.

“Life is too short to live in a state that does this to its residents,” Twitter user @lancemfisher declared.

And there are plenty more comments where that came from.

State police say they’ve had people lining up early in the morning to turn in applications to keep high-capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds and guns considered assault weapons under the new law.

While the Connecticut Citizens Defense League believes the law is unconstitutional, it has been reminding gun owners of the deadline to make sure they don’t become felons on Jan. 1.

STUDY REVEALS WHAT RELIGION AND SPIRITUALITY MIGHT BE DOING FOR THE HUMAN BRAIN
Religious people may have a whole new reason for joy in their lives: A study has found evidence that spirituality might help protect the human brain against depression.

“Our beliefs and our moods are reflected in our brain and with new imaging techniques we can begin to see this,” Dr. Myrna Weissman, one of the study’s authors and a psychiatry and epidemiology professor at Columbia University, told Reuters.“The brain is an extraordinary organ. It not only controls, but is controlled by our moods.”

In an article published in the JAMA Psychiatry journal on Dec. 25, the researchers explained that the cortex, the brain’s outer layer, may hold some keys to combating depression.

“A thicker cortex associated with a high importance of religion or spirituality may confer resilience to the development of depressive illness in individuals at high familial risk for major depression, possibly by expanding a cortical reserve that counters to some extent the vulnerability that cortical thinning poses for developing familial depressive illness,” reads an abstract for the study.

This basically means that those who were at high risk — but who said that religion or spirituality were important in their lives — generally had a thicker cortex than those at high risk who did not care as much about religion or spirituality.

It’s just one study, and shows only a correlating — not a causal — relationship between spirituality and depression risk. Still, it suggests that faith could be a factor in protecting some people who might be at increased risk of depression, though it doesn’t offer evidence that a thicker cortex actually leads one to be more likely to embrace faith or religion.

“Importance of religion or spirituality, but not frequency of (church) attendance, was associated with thicker cortices in the left and right parietal and occipital regions, the mesial frontal lobe of the right hemisphere, and the cuneus and precuneus in the left hemisphere, independent of familial risk,” the study’s abstract continued.“In addition, the effects of importance on cortical thickness were significantly stronger in the high-risk than in the low-risk group, particularly along the mesial wall of the left hemisphere, in the same region where we previously reported a significant thinner cortex associated with a familial risk of developing depressive illness.”

As Reuters noted, this research comes after these same experts previously found that people who claimed to be spiritual or religious had a lower risk of depression. They also found that people at higher risk for depression had thinning cortices when compared to those with lower risk.

To obtain the latest results, researchers asked 103 adults aged 18 to 54 about the importance of religiosity or spirituality in their lives; they were also asked how often they attended church over a five-year period. Participants’ brains were also analyzed to look at the thickness of the cortices.

Participants were children or grandchildren of people who had participated in the earlier study on depression.

Celebrate
I celebrate life!

New beginnings are cause for celebration. Like the rising sun shining bright in the eastern sky, a fresh start is reason to rejoice. As we celebrate, we let go of the past and embrace the present. We discover a new opportunity to awaken to the power of Spirit within.

Some celebrations are filled with cheers, songs, and shouts of encouragement; while others are quiet, like the blossoming of a flower. I celebrate life as a continuous learning experience, a gift of growth and expansion from a loving God.

I acknowledge and revere life’s varied celebrations. Joyous in the eternal power and love of God, I celebrate all of life!

I will cause your name to be celebrated in all generations; therefore the peoples will praise you forever and ever.—Psalm 45:17

I understand that your last 2 replies to me are way off topic from my original reply to Savannah. You went on a rant about how money is not governing when I was posting to Savannah about the republican's responsibility for lack of security the night our Embassy in Benghazi was attacked and 4 people died.
Savannah wrote:<quoted text>That is part of being a Democrat. Never take responsibility and always try to find someone else to blame your failures on. Trying to blame Benghazi on the house republicans is just another one of their desperate attempts to avoid responsibility for their failures. No one except the ones who subscribe to their line of thinking is going to believe that load of garbage. It was a failure on the part of the Obama administration and the Clinton state department. Nothing else. You need to quit dignifying this stuff with replies. To them that means they are getting their message out. Just ignore their blame nonsense. You know the truth. The real American people know the truth and that is all that matters.
After reading your sos, let's get down to facts, Savannah. Try this truth serum"
My reply to Savannah:
"House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012....Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans rejected.
Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security." Mother Jones
Yep, your Darrel Issa witch hunt against the Obama Administration over Benghazi is about to blow back into the Tea Party's face. If Hillary runs again, she will most definitely be sworn in January, 2017. Why? Because no republican can beat her in a general election. And your obstructionist, Ted Cruze, can't run for president, because he was born in Canada.
Whoooo Eeeeee! You sure know how to cut "Not my fault" of Rock Port, MO down to size.

ROFL! So "The Blaze" thinks it knows how to spell "Benghazi"! Ah, hahahahahahaha!

That's about as significant as "The Blaze" ever gets -- arguing about how to spell a word. They aren't smart enough to discuss anything else.

I gratefully release the past, appreciating all that contributed to my current spiritual awareness. With expectancy, I turn my thoughts to the riches of the coming year.
I aspire to live a Christ-centered life. Whatever my possessions or social status, my wealth is found in kindness, forgiveness, and wholeness.
