Nobody is responding, because nobody reads the Patch anymore
Townie April 17, 2014 at 07:20 AM
Yep!- Actually much more.

Actually, only $5000 more, but that 5k was for experience and peace of mind. Go Marty Flynn!

Great point. Since the BOF ultimately sets the BOE budget, will you be recommending adding to theRead Moreb udget to address this?

This stream seems to forgotten what the courts have said about the constitutionality of variousRead Morelaws . For example, the Heller decision in 2006(?) confirmed a person's right to have firearms but it also spoke of the community's responsibility to restrict and regulate their availability which is was Ct did last year. As to the lethality of weapons, we don't have to look very far to see the horrendous effects of assault style weapons and mega-capacity clips. Do you really think that there would have been as many victims and NO SURVIVORS had a .22 been used in Newtown?
Jay March 14, 2014 at 05:35 PM
@ tom campbell Well said. There is no need for a weapon of that magnitude being available to theRead Moreg eneral public. And there needs to be THOROUGH and DEEPER background checks than currently exist to ensure that nobody with a criminal record nor someone who is mentally unstable EVER attains a weapon of any kind. People that want guns to protect themselves and for hunting purposes do not need an assault rifle to do so. Those weapons are for mass killings. The paradox of freedom - to be free, we must have laws that restrict our freedom.

tom campbell March 11, 2014 at 10:21 AM
The only way to determine who a 'legal' gun owner might be is through a background check. AnotherRead Moresi mple concept, yes? If s/he passes, s/he can buy a gun. If not, then No. With over 50,000 licensed gun dealers in the country, there really is nothing restricting responsible people from buying guns. If they want more venues like gun shows, there really is no reason for them not to go through the free 5 minute check.

Tom, I suggest you go to this page and read the requirements for gun permits in CT. Perhaps thisRead Morewil l ease your troubled mind about gun permits in CT: http://www.ct.gov/despp/cwp/view.asp?a=4213&q=494614

What troubles me are not the laws in Ct which are rated 2nd only to Ca, what troubles me is theRead Morefact that someone can take a leisurely drive down I-95 to a gun show or after making a contact online and by a gun or two or a trunkful and return home wherever that might be regardless of any prior felony conviction, adjudication of insanity, or restraining orders. That's one way how legal guns can become illegal guns.

Start by being sure that you have documented proof that you won; publicize the name of theRead Morerestaura nt; and, file a small claims case.

And the conspiracy nutbags continue to creep out from under the rock.
Harold Callahan March 02, 2014 at 11:40 PM
This has nothing to do with conspiracy theories at all. This is entirely based on the report andRead Moresup porting documentation. The reality is there are serious contradictions in the report with the investigation documentation. Of course if you cannot refute the facts you resort to ad hominem attack as usual.
