VIDEO: Hundreds ‘March for Change’ to Connecticut’s Gun Laws

As hundreds rallied in at the state Capitol in Hartford for tougher gun laws, Patch was on hand to find out what brought people to the March for Change on Thursday.


On the two-month anniversary of the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown that claimed the lives of 26 people, hundreds gathered on the steps of the state Capitol in Hartford Thursday to advocate for changes to Connecticut’s gun laws.

The event, known as the March for Change, was organized by CT Against Gun Violence and included remarks by politicians, musicians, faith leaders and gun violence survivors and family members of others whose lives were cut short by gun violence, including several from the Sandy Hook shootings.

People came from all over Connecticut to be heard and express their views on the controversial subject of gun control, but Patch wanted to know the answer to one simple question:

The only reason that these people had the right to have their voices heard is the 2nd amendment. I respect, but disagree with most of their ideas around limitations on 2nd amendent rights. They need to learn about the concepts of incrementalism and freedom. However, those who want to go as far as banning guns need to be dropped into the middle of the ocean. Your ignorance puts millions of innocent people in danger and you are a threat to this country. For those of you that disagree with me I want you to read this article. The article appears today on Fox news.com but is an Associated Press piece. The AP has turned into the kings of propoganda. I want you to read the article, and then do the simple math that the article doesnt do for you, and then present your math on this site. I also want you to know that hollow point bullets are not used for target practice. Think critically folks and dont comment negatively on this unless you do the math. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/02/14/why-is-department-homeland-security-buying-so-many-bullets/
