Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  On December 9 2014 Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and rabid gun banner Chris Murphy (D-CT) joined with Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety to suggest gun control is the way to honor victims of Sandy Hook.

Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) also joined the Senators and the Bloomberg-funded gun control groups.

USA Today reported Sen. Blumenthal’s comments on the upcoming second anniversary of Sandy Hook:

The best way to honor their memory is through action against gun violence. Individual acts of kindness are a very fitting memorial. But the most effective memorial is to make our nation safer and better by making our laws more effective to prevent gun violence and keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.

It should be noted that laws were already effective enough to keep guns out of Adam Lanza’s hands, legally speaking. Therefore, he acquired his firearms by stealing them, not by taking advantage of so-called sub-par laws for gun purchasers.

Nevertheless, Moms Demand Action reports that Sen. Murphy is pushing for more gun control now. He said, “We don’t have to choose between protecting the Second Amendment and enacting common-sense safety measures. It’s long overdue for Congress to stand up and act.”

Rep. Thompson said the first step in keeping children safer is the passage of “comprehensive background checks.” He did not reference Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) admission that such background checks would not have kept the attack on Sandy Hook from happening.

The tragedy wasn’t caused by the gun but by a mentally ill person who had a mother who was a enabled. Why punish innocent law abiding gun owners who did nothing wrong. The President is more concerned with his political legacy than he is with solving the real problem of mental illness.

common sense tells me that unarmed teachers obeyed the no guns law and was unable to protect the children from somebody that didnt obey the law.

Punish 120 million law abiding citizens because of a crazy teen that killed his own mother, then a bunch of kids. Even worse are the politicians feeding off the media blaming law abiding citizens for this individual act. . Misguided people blindly follow the masses as most people in the United States are unable to fend for themselves. I have been more injured by a drunk driver, btw an off duty cop , using media’s logic I should sue automakers , gas stations , liquor store , oil manufacturers as they all aided a drunk driver that ran me over.… Read more »

Sen. Blumenthal misrepresents the reasons for gun control just like he misrepresented his military service.

The same reason you don’t see the news providing as much airtime showing stories where legal gun owners have saved people and stopped these types of shootings. If the FBI stats don’t show record of any killings, like they did with Columbine, then what really happened ? If you trust your government so much, why don’t you trust the proof that’s right in front of you, No FBI recorded murders.

These ultra-liberals and worse will use anything to advance their beliefs–as good Communists will. What bothers me more and more is the extremely high percentage of them both in and out of elected office who are Jews (not a bad word by the way). A book came out a couple of years ago by a conservative Jewish author about why most Jews are liberals. One would think that after the events in Europe and around the world directed at them in JUST the last 75 years they would think differently. I remember interviewing the founder of JFPO years ago (a… Read more »

Jews are “good” Socialist Progressives and in prewar Germany many were Communists. The Jews stayed in Germany with Hitler because they couldn’t imagine that they would be targeted being “good” socialists, but Nazis and Marxists while equally tyrannical didn’t last as playmates following their joint rape of Poland. Feindstein and her Jewish ilk love gun control because as long as the Gov controls the guns and they control the Gov. “All is Well”. My take on the latest CT gun pogrom is that it is laying the ground for enforcement of the existing registration law which thousands of gun owners… Read more »
