And in a related event:

“I am also banning all alcohol sales in stores and restaurants, since they may be traced back to a future drunk driving incident.”

And don’t forget to ban the car sales, too. DWI drivers and such.

The police chief in a Connecticut city has halted permits for gun shows, saying he’s concerned any firearms purchased there might one day be used in a mass shooting.


And there will be no more Axes, shovels, Hammers, etc. being sold anymore because they have all been used in murders.

Just... Just, give me a break here people. Instead of these STUPID, ASININE reasons you people, (Politicians, Talking Heads and this idiot of a Police Chief), please be honest... You don’t want the common citizen to have access to anything that might be turned against you someday. Even though we the common citizen need these tools to defend ourselves against your natural constituents, aka, the Criminal class.

Gun shows are only helping to provide the purchaser the right to protect themselves from harm that the police cannot 90 % of the time. Also as the Constitution says protect from a tyrannical government that no longer represents the good of the people.

How about they close down all car dealers since vehicles kill more people than guns.

It is sad that a Police Chief CAN “halt” the permit for the gun show.

But still funding planned parenthood.

Hollyweird and politicians are making it about guns. It’s about a nut. And if just one of those teachers had a firearm there would not have been such a massacre

Waterbury connecticut was once -THE- manufacturer of munitions for the entire world.

The Waterbury Brass mills made just about every ordinance in the world, for just about every major war.

By the mayor’s reasoning, Waterbury is already “responsible” for millions of deaths.

The shame of it is, since the factories closed down, Waterbury is a total sh!tpit. I won’t go into that town, armed or not. It’s beirut sans the whimsy.

"The police chief in a Connecticut city has halted permits for gun shows...

And just what gives this goose stepping little brown shirt the power to ban a legal gathering of law abiding Americans on his personal whim? If this ass clown was elected he needs to be swiftly unelected.

Using this logic, I’m surprised he didn’t just decide to seize all brick and morter dealer store locations and shut them down too. Fascists will be fascists.

He should also incarcerate all females, because they have the equipment to be prostitutes.

“Connecticut city halts gun shows in aftermath of school massacre”

Wonder what law they’re using to do this? Oh, none? The just make it up as they go along.

I’ve read where some allege “porno” encourages rape. Guess they’ll be pulling Playboy off the shelves now...right?
