The following is a press release from Nancy Alderman, President of Environment and Human Health, Inc.

 

Nancy Alderman writes:

Environment and Human Health, Inc.  is calling for stricter gun laws in Connecticut.

The 20 children in Newtown and some of their teachers were killed in under 2 minutes. If that does not make the case for assault rifles and guns/pistols that can shoot many rounds of bullets is succession to be banned -- nothing ever will.         

CT needs to:        

  • 1. Ban all assault rifles in Connecticut.   When CT banned assault rifles in the 1990's they allowed those that already existed to be  grand-fathered in - that has to change. They must now all be banned;        
  • 2. Guns/pistols that shoot many rounds of bullets need to be banned in the state;        
  • 3. Guns should not be unprotected in peoples homes.        
  • 4. To see the gun laws in CT go to  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Connecticut        
  • 5. We need the  Governor to lead  on this - and the legislature to follow.

CT GUN CONTROL 1) All gun owners must be licensed 2) All civilian guns must be stored in a gun-safe that is NOT opened by a key 3) All ammunition be tagged to trace to the end-user. 4) All weapons must be under the SOLE control of the licensed owner who will be criminally and civilly liable for its lose. 5) No civilian shall possess a military style weapon. 6) No weapon shall be capable of holding more than ten rounds in a magazine 7) No magazine capable of holding more than ten rounds shall be sold or possessed in the USA.. These are the bulk of my suggestions that fits the 2nd amendment rights of a legit. gun owner. What are your feelings on this subject

Why 5? What does that mean, "military style"?

Individuals intent on causing harm to others appear to disregard the law. Why would your skillfully crafted opinions numbered 1 through 7 change that? Laws only work for people that follow them. What if he had used a car, would we ban cars?

Yes please define "military style" Does that include my M- 1 Garand that I purchased from the CMP? You do realize the CMP was Started by the Federal Government and the M-1 Garand was the standard US Army Infantry rifle in the Second World War. So I guess you would want to ban that also?

This is Ridiculous, Short-Sighted and Stupid by the losers who made this law. It sceams out "HIT ME, I'M A PIGEON".
