Newtown chief: Bushmaster a "killing machine"
Newtown Police Chief Michael Kehoe on Friday said the Bushmaster assault rifle used during the Sandy Hook school shootings is nothing more than a "killing machine" that should be banned in Connecticut.

How does a stock that does not collapse or a bayonet holder without a bayonet make a rifle more deadly. They cannot define an assault rifle because these are not assault rifles. Assault rifles have been restricted since 1934 because they are fully automatic.
The problem is many of these police chiefs are put in place by the liberal political machine, so they know the truth, but can't say anything for fear of being fired. They are merely puppets for the likes of Malloy, Murphy, and Blummy. The truth is any firearm, whether it is an AR platform or a single shot 22, can be deadly. Part two of this, is once your selected as a victim by a criminal or the criminally insane, you are on your own; the police can't help you, but they will be there to pick up the pieces. The Newtown tragedy and the Cheshire home invasion is chilling proof of this.
The answer is stop the liberal politics; let law abiding citizens arm themselves, and laws should be created that punish the criminals, not the law abiding public. Why aren't our liberal politicians calling for mandatory sentences and harsher penalties for crimes. Maybe abolishing the death sentence should be re-examined instead of banning semi automatic rifles. Do our liberal legislators really believe that criminals or the insane are going to turn in their firearms or magazines?
The only thing that would have prevented the Newtown massacre would have been a lawfully armed individual.

Doesn't matter what the crooked politicians say or do, Kehoe will always back them up and protect their crooked interests because he is one of them. From not investigating crimes to harrassing people, to leaving murder cases unsolved, Newtown politicians can count on his support.

Child drugging should be banned in the schools.
"Info for Parents who are pressured to diagnose and drug their children for ADD or ADHD. Story behind our Sons death caused from ADHD drug, Ritalin.
Between 1990 and 2000 there were 186 deaths from methylphenidate reported to the FDA MedWatch program, a voluntary reporting scheme, the numbers of which represent no more than 10 to 20% of the actual incidence. "
Thats 186 dead children just from Ritalin.
Psychiatry has lots of labels to push its big $ drugs. Labels and drugs we didnt have 40 years ago and the kids were just fine. There were no school shootings.
Want to save kids? BAN the psychiatric drugging of children.

A knife has no limit as to how many times it can be used to put a stab wound in a person.
A gun overheats with high use.
A knife is a silent killer.
A gun makes noise.
A knife leaves no evidense behind.
A gun leaves a traceable bullet.
Remove all guns from society and only criminals will be armed with knives. Noncriminals won't have an equalizer.
