Sandyhook Dad: You`ll Have to Take My Guns “From My Cold Dead Hands” (Video)
thegatewaypundit.com ^ | February 4, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 02/04/2013 7:43:19 AM PST by servo1969

Bill Stevens, whose daughter attended Sandy Hook Elementary school, testified before a Working Group Public Hearing at the Connecticut State Capitol on gun violence prevention. Mr. Stevens told the committee about his daughter’s 5th grade friend at the school,

“Unfortunately, her friend’s little sister was murdered in Sandy Hook that day when lock-down and 911 were not enough to protect her from an evil person… Charlton Heston made the phrase “From my cold dead hands” famous and I am here to tell you today, you will take my ability to protect my Victoria from my cold dead hands.”

Good for him!

But don’t expect even one word of coverage from the American Soviet Press.

Did anyone else’s blood pressure shoot through the roof when the children’s choir from Sand Hook appeared at during the Super Bowl halftime show? What a bunch of crap! Hey, why not bring out the parents who lost children. Let’s really ramp it up.

Sorry...but as soon as I saw them come out, I flipped channels. What a revolting thing to do to these kids.

why not bring out the parents who lost children

They're saving those for the congressional hearings and the SOTU address.
Maybe some TV ads later, if and when bills get to the floor.

Help stop them in their tracks - write the committee members to reject these bills and not report them out of committee:

The gun grabber's legislative (National) bill compendium, updated (almost) daily:

House Bills:
H.R. 21: NRA Members' Gun Safety Act of 2013. Sponsor: Rep Moran, James P., Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, And Investigations.
H.R. 34: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2013. Sponsor: Rep Rush, Bobby L., Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, And Investigations.

And one to support! H.R. 410: To provide that any executive action infringing on the Second Amendment has no force or effect, and to prohibit the use of funds for certain purposes.

I am creating these photomemes because I believe an increasing percentage of Americans are purely "visual learners" today in the era of smart phones, etc. They just don't read, so these "micro history lessons" might be the only way to reach them. My teenagers are all about "memes" on social media, sharing the cleverest. Images, some sillier or simpler, or not, are the way to turn this debate. The left owns the MSM, we have to attack effectively where we can, with "infiltrated" memes. Just my dos centavos, explaining why I'm doing these. This one took an hour of my time on MS "Paint" this morning.

The Plattsburgh Daily Republican, July 12 1933

“The violation of a law, if the authorities have evidence of such violation should suffice in placing a violator behind; prison bars. Criminals have gone on committing crimes, finding loopholes in our laws with the help of lawyers whose only interest was in the big fees that their clients gave them and thus getting off with light sentences and reverting again to careers of crime. A crime is a crime and the perpetrator henceforth must not be let off easily. Society must be protected from the depredations of gangland. It may be necessary for citizens themselves to band together for their own protection, unless the authorities. take steps to curb the lawless elements. Citizens may be forced into forming vigilance committees, after the fashion of the pioneers of the far West.”

Liberals would rather see innocent kids die than “allow” parents to protect them.

This is one example of how the liberal mind is an aberation.

We can at the grass roots, the E-GOP and I guess the GOP in CT is so dysfunctional we would have to drag him across the line. I am sure we could get Ted Cruz, Sarah etc, to put their shoulders against the wheel...

I think the author got a little mixed up as this guy’s 5th grader wouldn’t go to Sandy Hook Elementary (all Newtown elementaries are K - 4th grade), but was nonetheless on “lock down” that day - the whole school district was.
