- Connecticut Begins Gold Dealer Shutdown (Activist Post, April 30, 2013):
If you don’t own gold yet, you might really want to hurry up and get some. We keep saying it, but this time it’s not just because physical precious metals are getting incredibly scarce. Purchasing gold may become outright illegal if what’s going on in Connecticut is any indication.
Even if Connecticut’s plan to track all gold sales isn’t a harbinger for a modern day Roosevelt-like ban on gold ownership, it will at the very least drive gold bullion dealers out of business with the cost of complying with the new regulation. That will create artificial scarcity in Connecticut and could set a precedent for other US States.
