I live in CT where the governor, dem-dominated government, and some weak-minded rinos have been patting themselves on the back since Malloy signed the new gun law.

I'm thoroughly disgusted with gov't at EVERY level.

A tax on ammunition, others chime in. So, I counter, you don't want gun owners practicing at shooting ranges?

Basically, the gun haters are angry about Newtown. They blame lawful gun owners for the behavior of criminals, so they support nuisance laws that restrict the...
