HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who four months ago broke the news to shocked parents that their children had been slaughtered in a Connecticut elementary school, signed into law Thursday sweeping new restrictions on weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines similar to the ones used by the man who gunned down 20 child and six educators in the massacre.

Alongside family members of some of the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Malloy signed the bill hours after the General Assembly approved the measure to give the state some of the toughest gun laws in the country.

I'm sure glad. Now those law abiding citizens won't be out there invading homes and robbing people in the streets.

They have a plan and truth nor reality have anything to do with it.

He is also proud that:

Between the murders and the signing , several hundred children were aborted.

Incredibly sad. Truly. They buried their historical roots.

You can always count on leftist extremists to vent their hatred of both the Second Amendment and those of us who believe it means exactly what it says.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has violated his oath of office and should be removed from that office immediately.

Marlin closed there Connecticut plant but I think that was a business decision made before this all happened. You know what, it is time to say to these people to “stuff it,” and add, “we will not comply.”

Stump a liberal...ask him to explain exactly how this law would have stopped Newtown.

No ‘assault weapon’....he can use a pistol.

No high capacity magazines?...Lanza had to use at least 10 magazines, and not one 6 year old child jumped him during the switch. In fact, he had free roam of the scholl until...welll...until the police came with their own guns.

Background check? Well, considering Lanza committed murder and aggravated robbery to get his gun, this probably won’t stop him.

Register magazines?!? Seriously. Lanza didn’t own any magazines.

Gun offender registry? Nope, Lanza wouldn’t have been on the list.

Eligibility certificate to buy ammo? Not a problem if you kill your mom to get ammo.

So go ahead, stump a liberal. This law was passed in the name of the dead children at Newtown. So, exactly which one of these laws would have prevented it?

BTW, I have a secret. I know how to prevent the next Newtown. Get an over-weight retired cop. Put a pitol belt, holster, and pistol on him, and sit him by the door.

"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American...[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."

Well, CT is now one of those Eastern States through which I will not drive, visit nor spend a cent. Suggest a total boycott of those idiots.
