2) they had an arsenal of weapons of inconceivable firepower and high capacity rounds far beyond any practical utility.
3) the kid had some mental disability, yet had easy access to guns.
Lawful gun owners aren't being blamed if the rest of society wants to close loopholes that led to this action. They should join in.
........You do realize you are pointing out a few flaws of the community? The womans actions were a response to her environment. It's crooked in Newtown. Blumenthal as A.G. protected the crooks, I guess they pay pretty good.

Kind of like the social liberals are trying to blame the murders of 26 people in Newtown on millions of lawful gun owners
You are a m/f c/s liar.

Of course: we knew that already.

The NRA blames the deaths on video games.

Those promoting universal background checks blame the people who pull the trigger.

And the immoral skanques like you who sell them the weapons.

Nope the immoral skanques are the leftists that are doing nothing about violent criminals and the dangerously insane. The Skanques are the ones promoting opening our borders to criminal aliens and giving them a pathway to citizenship or rather a pathway to vote demorat. The immoral skanques are the ones using the murders of innocent children to abolish the ownership of firearms to law abiding citizens and to cover up travesties such as Benghazi. The immoral skanques are the people that control the corruption in nearly every major city such as Chicago. If you want to see a real immoral skanque find a mirror.

...... Wow, you really are an idiot. I never said they blame Blumenthal, I said this is a screwed up community and Blumenthal is using them for political fodder. People in this community are crooks that have been protected by Blumenthal as A.G. Learn to read.

AG Power Grab

Out of control in Connecticut.

By John R. Lott Jr.

he last decade has seen state attorney generals use the power of the courts to shape public policy in unprecedented ways. Among the most aggressive in litigation ranging from tobacco to guns has been Connecticut's Richard Blumenthal, though for Blumenthal this was just the warm up. Even if the ideas that he is now advancing fail in Connecticut, they provide a dire warning of what other state attorneys general may soon start trying.

In just 12 years, his office has ballooned in size, more than doubling its budget from $13 million to almost $27 million and increasing the number of cases completed by 65 percent. Yet, despite this growth, Blumenthal has gone so far into actions previously reserved for other parts of the government that he often neglects the real duties of his job.

On August 9, the Connecticut supreme court checked Blumenthal for overstepping his authority. The court unanimously ruled that Blumenthal's jurisdiction is largely limited by state statute to representing state agencies and officials in lawsuits brought by or against them, although the attorney general had claimed broader powers.

Unsatisfied with his traditional role, Blumenthal had gone after the administrator of an academy accused of mishandling state funds. The court noted that it was up to the Connecticut commissioner of education, not Blumenthal alone, to bring the case.

Blumenthal has received harsh words before. For instance, last December, New York state's highest court found that Blumenthal's office was "mishandling" and making "missteps" in a paternity case. The Connecticut Law Tribune reported that "the direct criticism by the court raised eyebrows in Albany .…"

The state supreme court pointed out in its decision two weeks ago that the attorney general's office had been established in 1897 because of the inefficiencies in having "each state agency and department [retain] its own legal counsel." But in July, the Connecticut Law Tribune reported that because his staff was so busy, the attorneys in Blumenthal's office "will no longer serve as counsel to state boards or as counsel to agency staffs .…"

Worse, not only is he abrogating his role to advise, represent, and defend the state of Connecticut, his office is now suing the state. The high-profile case involves Cross Sound Cable Co. and represents an unprecedented power grab. Blumenthal sued to stop a cable being laid between Long Island and New Haven on environmental grounds. The suit was brought against the Connecticut Siting Council, the state agency that approved the cable. Just as in the case decided by the supreme court, Blumenthal filed the lawsuit in his own name, not on behalf of a state agency charged with these policy decisions.

Blumenthal claims that there is precedent for state agencies to sue each other, and indeed there is when lines of authority conflict. Try as they might, legislatures cannot foresee all possible conflicts. Courts step in to determine not who made the "correct" policy decision, but who has the actual authority. What Blumenthal wants, however, is something quite different. Instead of having legislators resolving policy differences, Blumenthal would make himself and the courts the final arbiter over policy.

The grab for power also crosses ethical lines. Two of the law firms that Blumenthal contracted with to sue the tobacco companies were run separately by his former law partner and his partner's wife. Blumenthal's defenders claim that other law firms simply didn't want the job. In a Connecticut Law Tribune article, however, a few lawyers disagreed, one complaining that "we didn't ever get a meeting" with the attorney general's office and another saying that his firm wasn't included despite agreeing to the state's contractual terms. Blumenthal's former partner, David Golub, acknowledged, "I know how it 'looks'— he's my former partner ..."

Yet, whatever the concerns about Blumenthal giving a contract to a former partner, where did he get the authority at the time the contracts were negotiated to commit the state to pay private attorneys a sum then estimated to be more than $250 million?

During 12 years in office, Blumenthal has grown arrogant. People in and out of state government are afraid of him and are scared to publicly speak about their experiences. The state supreme court has better uses of its time than to monitor the behavior of an out-of-control attorney general.

You are one angry liberal,the facts were even published by your beloved left wing media. They tried to down play it but they could not do too much. F&F resulted in fifty times more people being murdered, including children, than Sandy Hook. Again I ask where we're those fake social liberal tears.

Operation wide receiver merely tracked firearms purchased, and did NOT put weapons in the Hands of criminals like Fast and Furious. It is the belief of most that the intention of F&F was to create a tragedy to speed up the abolishment of the Second Amendment. The jury is still out on this part but examining current occurrences it is probably true.

Nice article in the CT Post regarding one of the "Sandy Hook Dads". He will be facing a judge for a bunch of criminal charges including larceny. Hhmm a very typical leftist social liberal hypocrite. His testimony is not credible. I guess this is the best the Obama administration can get next to barefoot.

“Why Adam Lanza did this, and if there is a contributing factor that is apparent from an assessment of his autopsy and prescription drug history, it is important to enable we – the public – and in particular AbleChild, an organization that interacts with caregivers, parents and legislators on issues relating to parental rights, to discover the truth.” Jonathan Emord, Attorney

Despite a formal request from AbleChild, a Parent’s Rights organization, citing numerous state and federal laws supporting the release of Adam Lanza’s toxicology results and medical records, Connecticut Medical Examiner, H. Wayne Carver, M.D., has arbitrarily denied the request.

The M.E.’s decision to withhold the information is at odds with Connecticut law, the State’s Constitution, federal law and the United States Constitution. In response, AbleChild has filed an appeal with the State’s Freedom of Information Commission (FOIC) for the release of the records and, if necessary, is prepared to take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

While state and federal legislators are pouring hundreds-of-millions of dollars into increased mental health treatment for school-age children, the question that has yet to be answered is what drove the alleged shooter, Adam Lanza, to become a killer. And, more to the point, one which can only be answered by the M.E., is whether Lanza, yet another in a long line of school shooters, was under the influence of psychiatric drugs.

I still find it odd that he parked the car outside the lines, rather properly. You would assume that someone in such a violent rage would almost drive through the door or at least up to it. With the two other people found at the scene still unidentified it seems that the investigators are hiding a lot. Not even a video shot of Adam walking the hall. Maybe he wasn't alone.

Actual fact is: more criminals are in prison now than ever before, and 90 percent of Americans support universal background check.

It seems only felons and right wingers don't.

But then: I repeat myself.
