The linkage to reality is this Alan. of the over 300 million guns owned in this country there were about 275 people killed last year with rifles (that includes so-called assault weapons). you do the math. guns are a NON-PROBLEM..

Another reality that no one seems to want to hear about are the roughly 2 million people per year who stop a crime with a privately owned gun.

Meyers addressed the above issues in this "discussion". His response was "No money." No money for mental health and no money for police in schools. The ONLY response was to make law biding citizens criminals with these new gun laws. His retired police officer friend admitted these laws do nothing to change anything or protect the public. This budget session, Malloy has proposed a two million dollar cut to the Department of Mental Health in his upcoming budget. This funding cut will abolish much needed jail diversion and community programs. Since being elected Dan Malloy has closed another state psychiatric hospital and a residential program for troubled kids. Leaving severely mentally ill people stranded in emergency rooms ti be discharged with no services. Both closing were cost cutting measures, placing no money back into much needed mental health programs.. Remember to vote Ed Meyer out of office and anyone else who approves these short sighted laws targeting the gun rights of law biding community members.

It is very tragic to what has happen and as a gun owner / sportsman / veteran 68-71, fund raiser, I would say only a few weapons should be looked at. But bringing up these issues of taken away our rights to bear arms for honest people to protect thier homes and families is a cheap cop out. This will not stop the evil out there and this is what has to be looked at.
