We’ve been saying it since the Sandy Hook slaughter unleashed a tsunami of civilian disarmament: gun grabbing pols are paying lip service to the democratic process. More specifically, all the post-Newtown “hearings” on gun control are little more than cover for politicians hell bent on wiping their feet on Americans’ Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Occasionally, the gun grabbers’ mask of fairness slips, as it did last night. “As the [gun control legislation] hearing reached its ninth hour,” Connecticut’s courant.com reports, “lawmakers started to grow weary. During a testimony from Matt Powell of Manchester, Rep. Minnie Gonzalez, D-Hartford, [below] said she felt he was threatening her and other lawmakers . . .
“I don’t know what’s going to happen with this bill, but right now I’m saying that I don’t think that it’s fair if we give you guys the opportunity to come here and express yourself because at the end of the day we’re going to make this decision and maybe you’ll like it, maybe you won’t,” she said. “If you guys don’t like us, then you vote against us.”
Democracy isn’t fair? I don’t think that means what she thinks it means. I wonder if she knows that Connecticut is The Constitution State? [h/t Pascal]
