Why are Connecticut bureaucrats creating criminals out of law abiding people?
The tragedy of Sandy Hook had far reaching effects. Whenever something of that magnitude happens the first reaction of some is to ask "Why?". The next question usually asked is "How can we prevent this type of tragedy from happening again?"
How did the Connecticut state legislature react to asking those questions? Did they rescind the law that prevents law abiding citizens from carrying on school grounds?
Of course not. Having an armed victim present at the scene of defenseless children would have given the innocent a fighting chance.
Instead they chose to pass "The Gun Violence Prevention and Children's Safety Act".
What did that act do? In short, it did the following:
1) Ban firearms by name and restrict firearm sales based on cosmetic features of the firearms 2) Creates a local database of firearm sales 3) Ban the sale of magazines with a capacity of over 10 rounds
While the justification of the act was to "prevent gun violence" (hence the name) as a result of Sandy Hook, we have to ask if that act would have stopped Sandy Hook from happening if it was in place on December 14, 2012 (when the massacre took place).
The answer? A resounding no.
Murder was illegal on December 14, 2012. Did that law stop the shooter from murdering his mother and all the innocent children that day? No.
Criminals are by definition people who do not obey laws. It is a logical contradiction to think that people who by definition don't obey the law would then magically start to obey the law.
What the proponents of this law would want us to believe would be that someone who is determined to kill his own mother to obtain firearms, and then go and kill innocent children would somehow be stopped in his tracks because the magazine he wanted to use was "too large".
So if the law wouldn't have prevented Sandy Hook, what does it do?
In short, it instead creates felons by decree from innocent people.
