Connecticut State Rep. Stephen Dargen, a Democratic legislator from West Haven, Conn. has this awesome idea! He wants the names and addresses of about 170,000 handgun permit holders in the state to be made public, according to a report published today, Jan. 4, 2013, on the NBC Connecticut website.
Ideas like this one, will only push gun owners, and gun manufacturers closer to a revolt should overbearing gun regulations be imposed on Americans. A Connecticut newspaper recently made the names of many gun owners' public, and they caught a great deal of flack over it, probably losing many subscribers.
Rep. Dargen’s idea is ludicrous.
Right now, in the state of Connecticut, the names of gun owners are confidential, but for some reason, Dargen has this really idealistic belief that if people know how many guns are spread across communities, they’ll be safer.
Yes, the tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, has brought all of the whackos out of the woodwork, all across the country. Don’t look now, but there may be an anti-gun politician right around the corner.
Most politicians on the liberal left just don’t understand why people want to own guns. They somehow have this lame idea that guns kill. That isn’t the case, people kill with guns. The gun is just the item used to commit the crime. Murder is simply the end result of someone who is; angry, deranged, on drugs, or mentally ill. Guns have never killed anyone! Even guns in the military have had someone who was holding the gun before it fired. The person pulled the trigger.
And also on this 4th day of January, 2013, Infowars reports that according to the FBI’s annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outpaces the number of murders committed with a rifle.
Recently, an anti-gun State Senator from Chicago was caught trying to board a United Airlines flight with a handgun in his baggage! His state was attempting to make concealed carry unlawful. It didn’t work because the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals said that it was unconstitutional for the state to prohibit people from concealed carry!
So, just where does this State Rep. from Connecticut get his ideas from? Your guess is as good as any!
