How do Connecticut residents feel about the crackdown on the Second Amendment? Well, there are people from both sides making passionate arguments on the issue, however, one gentleman last week was able to make a particularly persuasive case against more gun control and in favor of the U.S. Constitution.
Meet Robert Steed, a resident of Vernon, Conn. who took three days straight off work to attend several gun control hearings in Connecticut. On March 14, Steed was more “aggravated” than usual with lawmakers and he let them know it in his fiery testimony, telling them that they were “coloring outside the lines of constitutional parameters.”
“This is the third day I’ve taken off of work to come here to, like so many of the rest of us, to plead with you for us to keep our guns because of some wing-nut in Newtown, Connecticut,” he said. “If that isn’t inherently wrong, I don’t know what is. That these bills are even in proposed form is scary enough. That any of you could possibly be undecided is scary enough. What are you looking at?”
He went on: “I can’t for the life of me understand how this state can have as many gun laws on the books as it does and have members of its Legislature need to take firearms 101. And as far as what I felt were potshots taken at the NRA, they’ve done more for gun safety– they’ll do more for gun safety this weekend than this committee will do in your careers.”
What people are not grasping in this gun control debate that has taken over this nation is that gun ownership is a right…A RIGHT! There are so many unenforced laws on the books regarding guns it is mind boggling. These Gun Laws being proposed do nothing in the long run, they will not save lives if a person is truly intent on killing people. Mr. Steed here gets it he sees the futility of the argument and the debate on guns. A car in the wrong hands could be just as bad a weapon as an assault rifle. A gallon of Gasoline, you friggin name it there are so many things out there that can be turned into extremely lethal weapons. All we get from the elected talking heads is Ban this, Ban that Ban more, Ban all…..All of our representatives need to take a friggin step back and let the drool dry on your Bills to ban anything. We have rights in this country and those who do not want to exercise their right to keep and bear arms, you are free to make that choice but it in not your choice to make for other people. I don’t care what Quack in Washington from the President on down the line thinks about guns. The plain and simple truth is none of you were elected the eat away at our rights and our freedoms!
