Totally fascistic thought. People have the right to defend themselves. You will never get the guns from criminal, because they ignore laws, so guns will always b needed by the law abiding for protection.

To the extent handgun bans have any effect on handgun crime, it is to increase those crimes, because the criminals using illegal handguns understand that their victims are unlikely to be armed and able to defend themselves.

Look the goverment should keep better control on the amounts of guns being sold , the regluations should be tighter ,and the background checks more intense .This will prevent guns winding up in the hands of criminals.

Absolutely NOT! Contrary to news portrayal shooting is a sport enjoyed by millions. I grew up shooting, having been taught by my father and grandfather and now my son AND daughters all enjoy it. If you ban people like me and my family from having guns, the only ones enjoying the sport will be criminals...and they don't observe the safety precautions my family does. Gun statistics are vERY skewed for anti-gun rhetoric... gun laws are for the most part knee-jerk reactions to the criminal use of guns and typically bad, not accomplishing anything except maling people like me really angry. I'm now a single issue voter. 2nd ammendment, gun supporter all the way. Too bad a centrist like myself has had to be as narrow as I now am.

No ban ! Not now ,not ever! When a couple of 275 pound bucks come knocking at your door in the middle of the night to rape your wife, Your pistol or shotgun is your best friend.

Think the police will come in time?
Only a suicidal nut job would ok a gun ban.

Think it cant happen? Look what happened to the Pettite family in Cheshire Ct.

Gun control advocates need to watch this documentary:
"No Guns for Jews" - About Hitler's disarming of the people to make them into helpless victims.

Would people still support gun control if they knew our own federal GC law is based directly on the Nazi law of 1938? I hope not. Think of the staggering implications.

12GA express loads of 00Buck work very well.
Better than a pistol in the hands of most people and much less likely to miss.
The lady of the house, who never wanted to touch a firearm, learned how to use a Model 12 pump after 9/11.
Me, I like my .44MAG, but I'm a lifelong shooter.

They banned guns in NY, and look at what that did for law abiding citizens, they are now the victims. If you ban those who follow the law from protecting themselves, then those who don't follow the law will prey on them.

Nothing to back up your assertions? Why is that?

Self defense, and by extension possession of its tools, is everyone's inalienable right, just like free speech or privacy. Criminals will always, by their nature ignore gun control laws; only the law abiding would be restrained.

Is pandering simpering and anti-civil rights crusader Ct Gov Malloy acting just like a two faced deceitful hypocrite?(After all guns are the original civil right). Well, according to the Courant Newspaper he pulled political favors and handed out political bribes to keep his felon criminal son from doing any prison time, and the son is walking around free on probation. The son perpetrated an armed home invasion (his son took a plea reduced down to 1st degree felony attempted robbery of his drug dealer using a pellet pistol he threatened his victim with as being a firearm, plus a plea to a drug felony ). Look it up. So we do know that Malloy thinks that a violent felon should not face any consequences and should walk around free if part of the Malloy family. But if a regular citizen with a state permit to carry pistols and spotless record happens to own a handgun purchased totally legally last year, but which Molloy thinks now just holds too many evil cartridges, and if they fail to jump through all of Malloy’s hoops to reregister that magazine, or they load it up, then Malloy thinks they should do felony jail time.(Off duty and retired cops: this means you too, so you better not load your 15 round Glock with more than 10 rounds and you better register every magazine !). Two faced? Hypocritical? Maybe that evil pellet gun just forced Malloy’s son into turning into a violent felon all by itself, and maybe Malloy will outlaw all pellet guns and air guns and such. Small minds really have nothing better to do than to steal freedoms away from others. And if you think that anti-civil rights crusaders like Ct Senator Blumenthal are not committed racists, look at all their proposals to tax bullets and guns beyond reach so that only people with his $70 million fortune of privileges could have them or protect themselves, not ordinary people, and especially not law abiding working black people with low incomes that have a clean record and qualify for a carry permit but who may be stuck living in crime infested neighborhoods. These smug self styled emperors are wearing no clothes, and they need to be seen for who they really are.
