    Mods: If this doesn't qualify for legal and political, I'll post it in off topic.
    Or go ahead and move it.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...................very refreshing, someone with some "Common Sense!" Pretty rare up in that part of the country among politicians.

    He will probably get canned for this, but good for him.

    Indeed, he is probably looking at a surprise retirement. Another sad commentary on the times we live in when you must be courageous indeed to tell the truth. Thank you, Sir!

    I like the contents of this letter, but I hate to throw gasoline on the fire. This letter is not dated, no inside address to a particular figure, and it is unsigned. It has very little utility as "documentary evidence" and actually, because of the missing crediable elements, would easily raise skeptism from the antigun establishment. Can some one contact this writer and have the letter redrafted to incorporate the important elements?

    Not only that, but, Newton Conn education officials have requested MORE ARMED police presence in schools.

    A few armed teachers and staff members wouldn't hurt either.

    Not trying to sound all tin foil hat-tish, but I hope Marshall K. Robinson doesn't get into an 'auto accident' in the next two weeks.

    This thread and the one by the parent speaking to the CT legislative committee in another thread really shows that the people who are elected to examine the facts and propose and pass intelligent legislation aren't looking at facts and aren't thinking things through. I wish a Congressional rep or senator would stand up and just say "Wait a doggone minute. First, let's define what the problem is. Then let's determine the facts and get them on record. Then let's propose some solutions and debate them." If they did this I bet the vast majority of the "fixes" would have little or nothing to do with magazine capacity or type of gun.

    Playing into people's irrational emotions sways public opinions and gets laws enacted, not facts or statistics.
