While I am not surprised that the whiny Newtown parents are actually hypocrites that don’t really care about child safety, it was shocking for me to see that they are so open about it:
“Newtown voters on Tuesday rejected town and school budgets that contained an extra $770,000 to cover the cost of hiring new police officers and security guards for Newtown’s public and private schools.
Legislative Council chairman Jeff Capeci said: “At the end of the day, Newtown voters thought it was too much of an increase.”
Yeah, it’s not like there’s childrens’ lives at stake or anything.
They had no problem loudly and obnoxiously agitating for unconstitutional state laws that will cost many millions of dollars to implement (and will end up bankrupt and ineffective like Canada’s now-scrapped registration scheme), but when it is coming our of their own wallets, child safety is apparently not important enough to pay for.
I shouldn’t be so hard on them I guess. It takes a lot of money to pay for their mansions, pleasure boats, and zoning restrictions that keep minorities out of Newtown. They might not have any cash leftover to protect their own kids.
I wonder if sad-sack crybaby Neil Heslin will drag his framed paintings to the town budget meetings to protest this dangerous breach of child safety?
I apologize for the sparse postings lately, but we have been extremely busy fighting the gun grabbers and making preparations for the worst-case scenario. By now you have probably heard the news. The worst-case scenario has come true.
In a knee-jerk response to Sandy Hook, Connecticut’s Democrat-controlled legislature passed a comprehensive array of vague, contradictory, unconstitutional and virtually unenforceable gun laws in the dead of night. Somehow, these idiots think that they can register high-capacity magazines!
The police report on this incident has still not been released.
We still have not seen the autopsy or toxicology reports on the killer.
None of the proposals address mental health.
None of the proposals address school safety.
And the Asshole Governor rammed the law through the legislature under bogus emergency protocols, avoiding public debate and committee review of the law. Someone must be pulling his strings, because Dan Malloy’s former secretary says that he was too stupid to turn on his own computer while mayor of Stamford.
The law took effect immediately, when it was signed by the Asshole Governor at 12:30 at night, but the specifics of the law were not spelled out for dealers or citizens to read. Result: gun stores are sitting on unsaleable guns because this Frankenstein monster of gun laws neglected to exactly define what was and was not permissible under the law. Ammunition manufacturers like Nutmeg Sporting Cartridge can no longer sell to police departments because police departments are not considered a FFL.
Lawsuits have been filed. This will be fought. Many CT-based gun companies are planning to relocate.
No, the police report still has not been released. So we do not know what weapons were actually used in the massacre, among many other things.
But one of the victims’ parents was given some as-yet-unreleased information about the tragedy by the police.
At least one of the guns that Adam Lanza was using jammed during his murderous rampage.
A while back, Ruger sent out an communication that offered a way to email each of your federal, state and local representatives with a message urging them to reject new gun laws. Just add your contact info and they did the rest. I did it, and so did a lot of the people I met in Hartford for the public hearing a few weeks back.
Only one of my representatives has responded.
On Jan 28, I received this email from Sen. Chris Murphy (D – CT):
(UPDATED) Well, it certainly didn’t take long for the left-wing gun-haters in the Connecticut legislature to trot out their proposals. It’s almost like the proposals were already written, and they were just waiting for some dead bodies to stand on while they presented the Bills. Well, Rahm Emmanuel always said to never let a crisis go to waste…
This post is a long one, so refill your glass.
