Rally to Protect the 2nd Amendment: Hartford CT
The tragic and horrific mass shooting in Newton, CT on December 15, 2012 rekindled efforts by Liberals to attack legal gun owners and manufacturers by calling for additional restrictions on the U.S. Constitution's 2nd Amendment guaranteeing the right "to keep and bear Arms"*. Their proposed limits range from tighter restrictions on ammunition sales to limiting guns to only one round, along with bans on "assault weapons", and "high-capcity magazines". Despite, or in spite of, data showing a significant drop in gun violence, claw hammers are deadlier than "assault rifles", increasingly-restrictive gun laws don't work, mass shootings haven't increased "for several decades, and most people believe existing gun laws are tight enough, several states are proposing more and tighter regulations, with Democrat President Obama signing 23 Executive Orders on gun control.
Facing possible infringement of their Constitutional Rights, law abiding citizens voiced their opinions at various "Guns Across America" rallies across the country on January 19, 2013: Here are some photos from the rally at Connecticut's State Capitol in Hartford, CT.
