Let’s Stop the Political Posturing: An Assault Weapons Ban Would Have Done Nothing at Sandy Hook

I am sick and tired of political posturing by Feinstein, Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Cuomo, and the whole gang of gun grabbers. They are using a tragedy to push an agenda and the American people will not stand feinsteingungrabfor it. I encourage you to keep an open mind and look at the facts. I don’t care what political party you affiliate with, facts are facts.

Would an assault weapons ban have saved 26 people that died at Sandy Hook Elementary? No. This is not an opinion. This is fact.

All I need to do is share two facts with you today and if you can’t see the writing on the wall, than shame on you.

Fact #1: Connecticut Already Has an Assault Weapons Ban

I realize that the media is not reporting this so let me just quote the State of Connecticut:

“Sec. 53-202c. Possession of assault weapon prohibited. Class D felony. (a) Except as provided in section 53-202e, any person who, within this state, possesses any assault weapon, except as provided in sections 29-37j, 53-202a to 53-202k, inclusive, and 53-202o and subsection (h) of section 53a-46a, shall be guilty of a class D felony and shall be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of which one year may not be suspended or reduced; except that a first-time violation of this subsection shall be a class A misdemeanor if (1) the person presents proof that he lawfully possessed the assault weapon prior to October 1, 1993, and (2) the person has otherwise possessed the firearm in compliance with subsection (d) of section 53-202d.”

Major news sources have not been tripping over each other to report this. Gun grabbers have not acknowledged this. America you are being snowed.

Fact #2: An “Assault” weapon was not used in the Connecticut Shootings

“This continues to be a very complex investigation and there is a lot of contradictory information out there, but we have some new information this morning (one month ago) from a couple of federal officials and state officials.

They say now that there were petewilliamsactually four handguns inside the school, not just two as we were initially told. Four handguns and apparently onlyhandguns that were taken into the school.

We knew that Adam Lanza, the man said to be the gunman here, also had an ‘assault-style’ AR-15 -style rifle that he had had taken to the school, it was in the car he drove there, his mother’s car, but we have been told by several officials that he had left that in the car.” -Pete Williams, NBC’s Chief Justice Correspondent

So if no assault weapon was used, and there were already bans in place, what the hell is really going on here? I realize that assault rifles have used elsewhere but not at Sandy Hook, and it’s obvious that even with the state ban in place, a bad guy still found a way to get an assault rifle, even though it was left outside.

My recommendation to each and every American (Democrat, Republican, or other) is to forget about the federal government. 23,000 schools in this country already have armed guards and these are not the schools where the shootings are taking place. We can’t count on Washington D.C. to do anything for us. They will be arguing about these gun laws for months on end, if not years. It is about politics for them and we can not continue to stand for their nonsense. We can not wait for solutions that need to be manifesting now!

What you need to do is contact your school boards and local government officials and start demanding protection for your kids, in your home town. Will that prevent another theater shooting? No it will not. We can’t fix everything today, but we have to start fixing what we can.

Would it prevent another Sandy Hook? It simply lessons the odds but it’s worth it. Bad guys may try to take out an armed guard but at least we are doing something about the real issue and lessening the chances of it happening again, which is more than our federal government officials are doing.

If I had my way we would vote every one of them out of office and start over. But, that is not going to happen so the best thing we can do is take responsibility for our own children.

This is on us. Contact your school board. Contact your municipal government. Contact officials at your colleges and universities. Demand results.

Sure you will end up paying for it through taxes but at least you will know where that money is going, which is more than we can say about what we are sending to Uncle Sam. From what I understand, Obama is promising money to schools who want to hire guards so maybe they will reimburse your community later, but you can not wait. Our Children are too precious.

There comes a time when you have to push your political allegiances to the side and fix the problems that your elected officials are not willing to fix. Think for yourself my friend. These people are not eagleflipfocused on your problems. They are trying to win just another debate that ultimately strokes their ego. It’s about money, power, and ego to them and nothing else. They already have armed guards surrounding them. They don’t care about you.

It’s time to flip the freedom bird at Washington D.C. and show them that we can do what they will not. They have had enough chances.

Wake up America!

      You can own an AR15 in Ct but only with no more than a couple listed “assault type” features max or a preban.

      • I see. I also noticed the grandfather clause. There have been some who have questioned if the gun pulled from the trunk was even an assault rifle to begin with. I have seen the video and between my old eyes and small monitor I can’t tell for sure but it looks like some sort of shotgun. There are a lot of facts that don’t add up but I guess that is why the investigation continues.

    If you people who send your children to public schools want armed protection for them, YOU CAN PAY FOR IT YOURSELVES! We have never ever used the public school system yet we are already forced to pay way too much money for something we do not use (nor do we want to). NO MORE TAXES PERIOD!

    • I can respect that opinion. I think the stupidity of the national situation is that roughly 1/3 of all schools in this country already have armed guards. About 23,000. It seems to work but this is not being reported by the media. I would much rather leave it up to individual school systems than see the NRA proposal of a bigger federal government. Thanks for stopping by to tell us how you feel.

    what handgun shoots .223? If you want to use fact to prove a point, Make sure your facts are indeed fact.

    • Taurus made a .223 revolver. Bushmaster makes .and sells .223 pistols. Kel-Tec made one but it wasn’t cheap. I don’t think anyone has officially confirmed that .223 rounds were used. I think there is now an issue with the original statements. But if .223’s were used then we are either looking at another shooter, or who knows what? I am going off of the facts that have been given. Even in Obama’s speech he mentioned that assault rifles were used in Aurora, for instance, but never once did he say that they were used at Sandy Hook.. There are transcripts available of that speech if you would like to look.

      • steve says:

        I watched the live news conference with the medical examiner, He said .223 rounds were used. I do not blame the gun. I know there are many conspiracy theories and misinformation out there, but I understand the AR15 was used. A proven fact is that hammers, hands , and, feet kill more people than all rifles together.

        • Hey Steve, after reading your comment last night, I decided I needed to do a little research to make sure I wasn’t getting this wrong. There are conflicting reports all over the place, however… The State of Connecticut has now released a list of weapons found inside the school, and now they are saying an AR15 was inside the school along with two handguns. NBC news came out a couple of days after the other news sources had reported the original AR15 story and said the original AR15 story was wrong. I know what the medical examiner said, but the facts were so screwed up in the beginning that I am not sure which sources can be trusted. The police are now saying that it was a shotgun that was recovered from the vehicle and not the AR15 and the pictures I have seen would seem to back that up. What a mess. I tend to trust NBC over CNN, for instance, because of the allegations that have been made by the former CNN correspondent about the White House paying for stories. I realize there is no proof of those claims but I also know that they don’t rush to investigate such things. The problem is that you simply do not know who to trust in the media and you don’t know how deep the corruption runs. There are conspiracy theorists out there who believe the police and medical examiner are both being told what to say. I don’t want to get into the conspiracies right now because I am still researching a lot of that. Most of it can be debunked but not all, at least so far.

  3. I appreciate you all for stopping in and sharing your comments. We don’t always agree but if no one ever questions me, I never learn. I don’t always get to check the comments as often as I would like but I appreciate your opinions and will never seek to censor them.
