Connecticut Governor Set to Sign Gun Control Law

Apr 4, 2013 Full story: www.usnews.com

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was expected to sign a wide-ranging bill that includes sweeping new restrictions on weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines, a response to last year's deadly school shooting in Newtown.

Following a total of more than 13 hours of respectful and at times somber debate, the House of Representatives and the Senate voted in favor of the 139-page bill crafted by leaders from both major parties in the Democratic-controlled General Assembly.

More useless laws.
A great new way to make criminals out of law abiding citizens.
This won't end well.

The ‘new’ same old Connecticut law is good news to the criminals who will continue to kill unprotected good Americans that their self defense is denied. The same old ‘new’ law bans less than 10% of types of guns in the market while changes are made by the gun manufacturers to make other types of guns that are used by good Americans for their self defense when the local police are not available. Clearly, the new law is similar to existing laws that were not enforced and is aimed at placating the fact that the local police can save the lives of only 5% of people under attack by criminals with guns if they do not own their gun from self defense and are using it to protect their lives. The American people are wiser than the liars of Obama and the liberal Democrats that desire to trash the American constitution and convert America to the land of the terrorists and criminals of the world. Gov. Malloy new Gun Laws is 'naked' and will never be applied to the criminals like the previous laws. They aimed at helping the criminals kill more Americans in schools where Gov. Malloy oppose any security with gun in the hands of trained agents.

civil right? Is it because he is racist? Well sure, all gun control efforts in the US have always had a racist component, and the idea to tax guns or ammo out of reach is a pure racist construct that poor black or Hispanic people that live in risky crime filled neighborhoods have less right to self protection than super rich privileged white people like Blumenthal and Malloy who live in the most crime free places imaginable. But the real reason Malloy hates guns are that whenever you blame the object you make the person blameless. And Malloy’s own son perpetrated an armed home invasion and robbery of his drug dealer who he threatened with a pellet gun he passed off as a firearm 4 years ago. Does that make the son an evil criminal? Sure. Badly raised? Sure. But Malloy pulled all sorts of strings and handed out all sorts of favors and got him no jail time probation for pleading guilty to 1st degree felony attempted robbery and a felony drug charge. Do you need to be connected like Malloy to get that sort of deal? Sure.(source Hartford Courant : look it up). Also, if his victim had owned a gun Malloy’s son might be worm food right now rather than free on the street .
People’s behavior and actions are governed by expectation of consequences. People not so governed are criminally insane. Removing corrective consequences breeds evil people. If you blame evil behavior on inanimate objects (like guns or drugs) you incubate bad behavior and evil. And if you reward and validate evil behavior with endless fame and attention, as the media does for stranger gun killings with a certain body count, then you incubate an endless cycle of escalating incidents as a guaranteed pathway to TV fame. Guns to blame? No. Is an attitude promoting no responsibility for actions like Malloy practices to blame? Sure. Is the guarantee of limitless fame for evil behavior which the media dangles in front of demented people to make a buck to blame? You bet.
