Connecticut Carry

Connecticut --(Ammoland.com)- Connecticut Carry was proud to attend and speak at the hearing of the Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety.

We joined at least 1500 other fellow pro-rights activists and gun owners who braved cold weather, long lines, public speaking and an all day wait to have our voices heard.

The great work of our members utilizing kind and respectful debating and sharing intelligent and articulate thoughts and ideas is sure to leave an impression on everyone in attendance. We can only hope that the legislators in attendance will respect and honor the vast amount of public opinion they received today.

Good spirits and patience ruled the day despite the treatment of our kind as second class citizens. Lines of good people wrapped around the building waiting to be screened by the metal detectors installed because of some ridiculous and misplaced apparent fear of peaceful gun owners.

The hypocrisy of the metal detectors and armed guards was not lost on most in attendance who noted that the same provisions are not available for schools across the state despite both the LOB and schools having the same designations as ‘Gun Free Zones’.

Would it be acceptable to treat any other generalized group of people this way?

If our legislators are important enough to protect with their own armed police force and metal detectors, why have so many legislators mocked the idea of doing the same in our schools? Why have they not embraced the National Rifle Association’s offer to fund and arrange training for such changes?

Senator Ed Meyer reported to a crowd in a church in Guilford at an anti-rights rally and again in Branford at a similar anti-rights rally that he had looked into the cost of such security, but had concluded that it was cheaper to ban guns instead. Would Senator Meyer or the other legislators agree with reassigning the Capitol Police to guard those schools?

Why not?
