Sandy Hook Advisory Commission Report: Confiscate Guns

Postby ShotgunBlast » Wed, 21 Jan 2015 19:49:32

In December 2012, after Adam Lanza murdered 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut, the NRA said: Don't blame guns; blame the mental health system. More than two years later, a Connecticut advisory panel dominated by psychiatrists is prepared to issue a rejoinder: Don't blame the mental health system; blame guns.

Last Friday, the Associated Press reports, the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, appointed by Gov. Dannel Malloy, decided to recommend a ban on "the sale and possession of any gun that can fire more than 10 rounds without reloading."


*sigh* It gets better (worse?)

That's a lot of guns. I gather people would still be allowed to have revolvers, shotguns, certain rare fixed-magazine guns, and single-round weapons such as bolt-action rifles and derringer pistols. But I think that's pretty much it. Could such a sweeping ban be reconciled with the Second Amendment? The commission's members do not care. "Whether or not this law would stand the test of constitutionality is not for this commission to decide," one member, former Hartford Police Chief Bernard Sullivan, told A.P. "The commission has expressed very strongly that this is a statement that is needed regarding the lethality of weapons."


So in summary, some people got paid for two years to be on a commission that produced nothing that could possibly survive a judicial challenge if by some miracle it even became law.

The last line in the article nails it.

This is the sort of magical thinking that makes it hard to take gun controllers seriously.

I'm at a loss for words. And that's hard to do to me.

With no realistic parameters for the study, there can be no realistic solutions. In other words, what a colossal waste of time.

Perhaps a ban on psychiatrists would have a more positive and long lasting effect.

The golden nugget may well reside in that post.

They're sure getting a lot of mileage out of those dead rich white kids.

Ever notice how the geniuses that come up with these ideas always expect someone else to get it done for them?

How many of them will be knocking on doors to tell folks to hand over their guns? I'll bet they expect to be at home while someone else takes the risks for them.

Nothing new there.

If the State was ever bumb enough to try that, I would just store all my stuff out of state while the lawsuits fly or until I found a new home in another state. Just leave them to their own misery.

The only problem with moving is, eventually, someone has to take a stand for freedom. If everyone backed off by moving, eventually the few free states would lose their freedoms due to being out numbered in Congress.

I get the feeling someone somewhere wished there was a newer incident to focus on instead.
