From Charles C.W. Cooke a the National Review:

“There are at least two hundred million privately owned guns in America, and Connecticut regulates access to them more strictly than most. To believe that yesterday’s crime could have been prevented, you have to presume either that a man willing to go to such grievous lengths could have been deterred from doing so by stronger laws, or that those stronger laws could rid America of privately available guns completely — thus making the killer’s task an impossible one. I believe neither thing. To pass a law is not to achieve its aims, and one suspects that any attempt at gun control in America — which outlaws and the deranged will naturally ignore — would be destined to be filed next to Prohibition and the War on Drugs in the annals of man’s folly.”

——— Connecticut regulates access to them more strictly than most-——

If Connectticut were purged from the Republic, the citizens would no longer need to worry about the second amendment. Their new constitution could create the Animal Farm they truly long for
