Connecticut: What the Anti-Gun Crowd Really Wants

Stolen from a friend of a friend with a law degree:

Connecticut gun laws the killer LIKELY violated (with assumptions pointed out):

[DISCLAIMER: This is based on the “facts” about the situation being currently reported. These “facts” are fluid, and would affect the following analysis.]

One: He’s guilty of three counts of theft. (Assuming mom didn’t lend him the two pistols and rifle.)

Two: He’s guilty of three counts of possessing a weapon on school grounds.

Three: He’s guilty of two counts of criminal possession of a pistol or revolver. (Assuming he was “convicted as delinquent for the commission of a serious juvenile offense,” which is a logical assumption based upon reports that he had a “checkered past” and had been a “troubled youth for most of his life.”)

Four: He’s guilty of two counts of illegal possession of handguns. (Concealed-carry permits aren’t granted to anyone in Connecticut under the age of 21.)

So that’s at least four laws, and with a total of 10 violations (counts). Note that I didn’t mention other laws he broke, including murder, assault with a deadly weapon, etc. Those “counts” would be nearly incalculable.

Laws (like those listed above) can only punish violations in retrospect – i.e., after the violation has occurred.

So, logically and unemotionally, my serious question is:

What additional gun laws would have PREVENTED this situation and other recent mass killings?

If “gun control” advocates hold their position that their goal is to PREVENT such situations, then logic dictates that the only law that would meet their objective would be very easy to draft:

“No person, citizen or non-citizen, living within the United States may own or possess any firearm.”

Imagine the governmental (police state) powers that would be required to enforce such a law. No longer would we be simply talking about the Second Amendment. There would be multiple parts of the Constitution that would need to be discarded.

As long as the goal is prevention, the real agenda of those advocating strict gun control legislation must be the collection and destruction of all firearms. That would be the only way to PREVENT such incidents from occurring.

And my apologies to those who may be offended due to the timeliness of this post. I’m not without sympathy. It’s simply the analytic and logical part of my nature to move to such a discussion quickly.

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
