NRA buses hundreds to Connecticut Capitol in state that was rarely a worry until now

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- The National Rifle Association helped bus hundreds of supporters to the Connecticut Capitol on Monday, the latest sign of its stepped-up presence in a state that hasn't typically posed a challenge to the gun rights organization's mission.

The NRA decided a week ago to help organize a lobby day after Gov. Dannel P. Malloy released his package of gun control proposals and a bipartisan legislative panel unveiled competing gun violence recommendations from Democrats and Republicans, said John Hohenwarter, an NRA state liaison.

Legislative leaders are considering those recommendations and others as they try to draft a bipartisan bill for the full General Assembly to consider, likely later this month. The leaders met behind closed doors Monday as the gun rights supporters descended on the Capitol.

So Connecticut...Let Me Ask...

...If someone else jumps off a roof....will you?

Seems like everybody has nothing better to do than get in a
"pissin' contest" or a "circle jerk".

Legislators: WISE UP!

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

I have to disagree

CT always checks neighboring states laws as a guide & the neighboring states are NY & MA. Enough said.
