Pro-assault weapons goon heckled the father of one of the kids slaughtered in Newtown

http://www.ctpost.com/local/article/Newtown-dad-to-lawmakers-Change-gun-laws-4228992.php
<snip>
A false fire alarm, 45-minute waits to get into the Capitol complex, even the heckling of a bereaved parent of a Newtown shooting victim marked Monday's day-long legislative hearing on gun control.

"The Second Amendment!" was shouted by several gun enthusiasts in the meeting room as Neil Heslin, holding a photo of his 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, asked why Bushmaster assault-style weapons are allowed to be sold in the state.

"There are a lot of things that should be changed to prevent what happened," said Heslin, who grew up using guns and seemed undisturbed by the interruption of his testimony.

"That wasn't just a killing, it was a massacre," said Heslin, who recalled dropping off his son at Sandy Hook Elementary School shortly before Adam Lanza killed 20 children and six adults. "I just hope some good can come out of this."

Another father of a 6-year-old boy murdered in the shootings fought back tears as he told lawmakers to make any changes in gun laws simple.

"I don't believe it's so complex," said Mark Mattioli, whose son, James, was among the first-graders slaughtered on Dec.14.

3. Well, they don't HAVE to. It's a choice.

I think people like that are just those who have never suffered any real loss in their lives or are so stunted in their maturity and emotional growth that they can't show empathy or understand what it is to have suffered at that level.

I don't think so. It's shameful. These people are obsessed with their guns and with their cowboy fantasies. They have no conscience.

I wanted to be treated. Be nice! Watch your tongue! Don't you DARE make fun of that person!! And if the lesson didn't stick, I got a spanking and lost privileges.

People like this probably had bad parenting to start with, reinforced by a culture around them in their little podunk towns or whatever, where that sort of nastiness was not called out and criticized.

We need to bring back public shaming rituals for these freaks. Throw them in the stocks and let their victims lob rotten tomatoes at them.

Just like the ones who were threatening to start killing people - so many of them - I'm sick of their mentality:



I've seen that online many times. And I'm stick of their bumper stickers I've seen in real life for twenty years:



They claim they have Second Amendment rights but they don't believe in the First Amendment. And their days of bullying need to come to an end to solve the problems this nation and the world are facing and they aren't helping a bit.

48. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise.

When Sheriff Jim Clark let loose his men on peaceful civil rights protesters in Selma, Alabama in 1965, it suddenly became increasingly clear to most Americans who was on the side of right and who was on the side of wrong.

243. This CBSNews story names some names...

<snip>
Many gun rights advocates, wearing yellow stickers that read: "Another Responsible Gun Owner," were among the estimated 2,000 people at the hearing. ..."The Second Amendment does not protect our right to hunt deer," said Andrew Hesse of Middletown. "It protects our right to self-preservation and preservation of our family. The right to bear arms." Elizabeth Drysdale, a single mother from Waterbury, spoke of three recent incidents that caused her to fear for her safety. She said she should be able to choose the size of magazine and type of firearm to defend herself. "Don't my children and I deserve your support and consideration to be safe," she asked lawmakers. Judy Aron of West Hartford said bills such as those requiring gun owners to have liability insurance and ammunition taxes only harm lawful gun owners.

16. When they show you who they truly are....

....believe them.

They value an inanimate object, whose specific design is to kill, injure or simulate killing/injuring, over the lives of human beings.

That speaks for itself.

81. No, they're not responsible for the boorish behavior of other people.

I know it's popular to attribute blame to gun owners, especially AW owners, but it's simply not true.

I own guns, although no AWs, and in fact I am in favor of of an AWB. But attributing blame to an entire group of people for the behavior of some is simply WRONG.

supporting THAT particular ban?

92. As I have said before, I am in favor of hi-cap magazine bans

BUT, and it's a big "but," it depends on how you define hi-cap. I think a 15 round clip for a 9mm is fine. 30, not so much. Drums, gone. Setting it at 5 or 6 is arbitrary and, in my opinion, unreasonable.

And I'm glad you're keeping track of my weapons.

Read a little futher in this thread and you'll see that I actually favor reasonable gun control efforts, including an assault weapons ban.

But you see me as a gang member. That's the problem with your side. You insult those who would actually cooperate with you, and in so doing, you alienate them. Inother words, you see me as a gang member, and that makes me see you as a gun grabber.

Reasonable gun control COULD happen if the gun grabbers weren't so busy alienating us "gun nuts" to the point that many many many will not support it. Without overwhelming support, it won't get past the supermajority required in the Senate (assuming it could get past the GOP-controlled House).

And we're to this point because of exactly the attitude you're showing: "Not my problem, I don't do that."

But now, because no one spoke up or added anything meaningful to the debate, you're surprised to get lumped in with the assholes?

Public perception is everything. And the majority who do not own a gun think of gun owners as an overrepresented bunch of psychopaths at this point. And by not putting enough distance between jackasses like these in this story and actual responsible gun owners, it's the fault of every responsible gun owner, too.

We have the far right, who are not seeing things clearly and being egged on by their media choice and the far left who are in many ways unreasonable in what they think the country will tolerate or should. I live somewhere in the middle.

It bothers me when people make jokes here about rural people like my extended family, many own rifles to protect their property and livestock. We have to have a sane discussion without shouting about automatic weapons and large mags. i do not agree we need them but I want to listen to reasonable ideas.

I do not see you as the kind of gun owner who would have yelled at that poor father, those types of people do not help your cause in the least and I think most gun owners understand that.

You are right, not all gun folks are psychos, but you do have a few. I have seen them here and they scare me.

Here's an opportunity to take advantage of the lexicon. In the abortion debate, RWers are "pro-life," and call others "pro-abortion." (No one is pro-abortion.) So when the gun nuts call those demanding gun control "anti-gun" (which is okay with me), call them "pro-murder" and put them on the defense to explain why they are not for murder.

Hypothetical bullshit bluff.

Since the public overwhelmingly favors better, more effective gun control, Dems will more than likely reap the benefits of attempting to pass that legislation, and the GOP will suffer for blocking it. Bank on it, Chester.

I'll take my chances in 2014 and do the right thing anyway. Doing the right thing trumps your bullshit concern trolling about possible electoral consequences. 20 actual dead six year olds trumps your hypothetical bullshit.

Not to mention, again, the public OVERWHELMINGLY supports better gun control. There will be no electoral backlash for supporting it. None. And frankly, the NRA is becoming a demented, radioactive freakshow. But feel free to keep supporting their nonsense.

247. Even hardcore

Republicans are speaking up about gun control. People are sick of there being a mass shooting every time we turn around, and everyone knows why they happen in our country and not other countries with similar standards of living. It's because we have too many guns in the hands of too many people.

Change is coming. You may fear it, but it's coming anyway.

249. The change has already come - DC V. HELLER

You want to stop mass shootings? You can start by making sure our kids have decent schools to attend, and make sure each student has access to counselors who can get them the help they need. The Republicans won't commit to that, you know, because that's hard. Not to mention the fact that it'll step on too many toes at Wall Street, I suppose.

Keep advocating the easy way out if you want, but I'm not prepared to shred the Constitution just yet.

NRA Tactics Under Fire After Father of Newtown Victim Heckled


Martin Bashir took down the tactics of the NRA against gun safety today, starting off with a clip of an ĎNRA moleí who heckled father of a victim the Newtown tragedy, Neil Heslin, as he talked about the loss of his 6-year-old son Jesse.


Steve Kornacki: If you look at the outpouring of grief for these families, one thing thatís separated the aftermath of Newtown is this story has stayed in the news. It stayed in the news a lot longer than other shootings and itís kept gun control in the news a lot longer which has created this political opening. When you look at a moment like that, which obviously itís indefensible for somebody to show up at a hearing and treat a man like that, but I think it adds to the momentum. It adds to the outrage and it adds to the case for action to be taken here.

94. What A Lie

 

This article is nothing but propaganda. I heard Mark Mattioli, and yes he broke up over his 6 year old son, but the writer of this article, didn't just take him out of context, he lied and made stuff up. One of the most interesting parts of Mattioli's speech was that it is the "lack civility in our country" which is causing the problems. He didn't blame guns. He actually mocked the gun laws in Chicago and 500 dead kids last year. A problem can never be solved when you start out with fiction about the issues.

No one should have any problem with me going in to such a meeting and yelling "FIRE!!!"

If the gun loons are allowed to buy up assault weapons and thousands of rounds of ammo because they are paranoid. I could be just a paranoid and yell "FIRE!!!" in a public place.

I could say. "I thought I smelled smoke and yelled FIRE just to be on the safe side."

No one should have a problem with that.

Next time I see a guy wandering around with AR-15 in JC Penny there's no reason I can express my same freedoms and yell out warnings that some maniac is walking around with a gun.

It goes both ways if the gun maniacs are yelling things like jerks.

They disrupt us. We can disrupt them.

174. I'm curious whether or not they escorted those scumbags out of the hearing....

...because I've read nothing that would indicate that they did so. And if they didn't throw them out, why not?

196. "Father of Newtown victim heckled at hearing"

 

As opposed to the embelishment.

Also, where's the supporting documentation on this heckler? Did the media bullshit us again?

The whole "blame the media" thing works well on right wing websites. Not so much here.

207. Bias is different from lying.

 

Has the media reported on each and every incident of heckling out there? The total time of heckling is short too. The heckling is wrong but it is being given way too much attention.

210. A man's emotional appeal about his dead kid was rudely interrupted by NRA snark.

That's pretty outrageous to me, and it shows me who these people are. It most certainly is newsworthy.

214. I see reality has no effect on you.

Watching a video of a grieving father getting heckled and interrupted with shouts of "Second Amendment shall not be infringed!" and all you see is "a bunch of self serving media types"?! You are either blind or deeply disturbed. Either way, please stop polluting DU.

219. Those ARE the standard NRA talking points about how gun control doesn't work.

And you posted it to spread that vile propaganda. It had no bearing on the OP. The OP was about the heckling of a grieving father trying to speak at this hearing. You, despite being pointed to videos that show exactly that, still refuse to even acknowledge that reality and instead hijack this OP to spread vile gun nut propaganda. It is sick and you should be ashamed.

226. You don't have to be an NRA member to spew their propaganda.

Whether or not you or this tool you posted are NRA members does not matter; what matters is that you refuse to acknowledge reality. You ignore the videos showing the vile heckling of this poor father. Worse, you deny it is even happening, claiming it is all media bias. You have no shame.
