Look at that baby that got shot - if the mother had a gun she could have blown these bastards away and we would not have to feed them in prison.

A husband has a choice to let his wife carry a gun or be carried by six in a coffin if she is attacked. My wife had to pull her gun twice and needless to say they ran from her.

My husband - and most others - do not need a gun*ugging wife - despite the propaganda from the NRA/gun business and you gun*uggers.

Your histrionics is too much propaganda for a Sunday!

So everyone should be packing a gun in order to prevent gun violence, huh?

That's not what we are advocating. If you don't wish to carry a firearm for self-protection...don't. Just lay off my constitutional right to do so.

Did you see Dr Carson address CPAC? He was wonderful, best part, he spoke for a long time without a teleprompter. He knows exactly what he stands for, and he is going to be President some day. He is a real black man, both parents were black. Now as for the gun ban, it is DOA. If the mothers really wanted the killing to stop, they would stop breeding like rabbits, marry the fathers of their children, make a civilized home for the children, and they would stop using each other for target practice. In the ghettos of our big cities that will take another 200 years.
You hit on something there.
Everyone wants to look at statistics comparing gun laws by state to gun murders by state. That is only part of the big picture.
What also must be looked at is the make up of that state. How many big cities are in that state? Is that big city under Republican or Democrat government? What is the gun murder rate per 100,000 of that big city compared to the gun murder rate per 100,000 of the state?
What is the Black population percentage of the big city and or the state?
These things are taboo to the PC advocates, but FBI statistics say they are a major factor in why gun murder rates are what they are.

You don't have to - if they shoot at you - you can always use a rubber band and a spit wad to defend yourself.

Nothing will prevent violence/crime to harm the honest citizen as long as there are THUGS, GANGS, MURDERS, DRUGS and people who like to rob and hurt other people for fun. You keep screaming GUNS well if it was not GUNS they would use KNIVES, BRICKS, BATS, VEHICLES and the list goes on and on.

A gun keeps you from getting shot at since the THUG KNOWS YOU ARE GOING TO SHOOT BACK. The chicken shet cowards do not want to get hurt. When everyone gets the CC law these shooting will not be as frequent since all the shootings were at a NO GUN AREA, movie house and schools.

You are very naive if you think these Godless criminas will stop killing if you take their guns away. They will kill using some other method. They have no conscience.

Hello Phil,
I`m asking you to vote NO on all the gun control proposals being put forth by the numerous committies with the exception of background checks and finger printing.
Here`s why:
Connecicut already has one of the toughest gun control laws on the books now and unfortunetly the courts don`t deal out the strongest punishment to those who commit crimes with any kind of weapon, I had thought that some years back that anyone who used a firearm in the commission of a crime was to get an additional 5 years in prison for using the firearm itself, this added to the time given for the crime committed. If this law did make it on the books then I`ve never heard of it being implemented by any CT.court.
All these restrictive laws if implemented will do is turn thousands of law abiding legal gun owners into potential felons. Back in the 90`s with the first assualt weapons ban I had asked a prosecuter I knew if he knew the percentage of banned weapons that were known to exist that had been registered, he told me that they figured about 5%. There is an inherant belief and rightfully so to many that gun confiscation will be eventually on the agenda, sans law abiding gun owners refusual to register their firearms. We have never had a foreign nation invade our mainland because I believe as we are the most armed civilian population in the world. It stands to reason that any invaders would not only face our military but millions of civilians as well.
You know that I was a supervisor at (Left blank here), worked there just short of 10 years and the recitivism rate for repeat offenders was over 70%. Many are doing long prison sentences with one on death row. Most of these kids were gang members or wantabe thugs, many who never should have been accepted to (Left Blank here) had serious violent mental problems, but we had to take them due to threats by DCF. We were a warehouse in many cases for kids who but for their age should have been in prison and many are there today. We dealt with everything from murder to child molesters. Doesn`t say much for our criminal justice system.
I was watching tv when the news on Sandy Hook appeared, it was the first time in my life that I can ever remember tearing up, I couldn`t believe that anyone could have done such a horrific crime upon such innocence, it broke my heart. This obviously was a young man who had some serious mental problems that others knew about or atleast suspected and told no one. The mother knew but was irresponsible in not locking up her firearms which resulted in her death as well.
All these mass murders from around the country were comitted by young people, many students themselves or dropouts, as reported Two things seemingly in common was gansta rap music and violent video games spending many hours as kids did at (Left Blank here)playing them, I call it indoctrination into a world of violence.

No matter how many gun laws are enacted, you cannot prevent another Sandy Hook or Virgina Tech or Columbine from happening again as laws mean nothing to criminals or those suffering mental illness, they won`t comply. What you will do is turn law abiding citizens into potential felons, these are not the segment of our society the legislature should be going after. Sandy Hook was a freak incident that no anti-gun legislation could have prevented. As we have seen since, a young woman, student was arrested here for planning a similar mass murder and a number have be arrested including a guy yesterday with bombs and bomb making equipment. If someone wants to commit a mass casulity crime they`ll find away, I`ve heard that the internet provides instructions if you know where to look on bomb making and on poison making, these kids today are so computer savvy it just boggles my mind, you would not believe some of the conversations I overheard while at (Left Blank here), some of these kids scared the hell out of me with how much they knew at such a young age, and displayed no morals, scrupples or value for human life. This is evidence that law abiding people have a right to defend themselves and families, friends by any means they are comfortable with including semi-automatic weapons with atleast large round magazines (for the target shooters who use them). The general public has no clue as to the mindset of many of todays youth.
We should sit down sometime if your interested in my thoughts and talk. But please don`t go after the law abiding gun owners, whether hunters,target shooters or for the defense of one`s home. Do not create a State where only the criminals who will always get a weapon if they want one by way of the black market or theft. or Law Enforcement are the only ones armed leaving the general public defensless.

Contact your local news station with a copy of your letter. Tell them you have gotten no response. Let your rep know ignoring a constituent can lead to hearing from a lot of constituents. Post it in social media like Facebook, if you use it, as well. Send the letter to your rep again, registered mail, so he can't say he never received it. Make that wheel squeak.

They don't respond to freaks who blather on and on and on just to hear the sound of their own voice, zippy. If anything, your rantings will probably prompt your rep to vote YES. Well done, mouth breather. The families in Sandy Hook thank you.
