Newtown father: ‘You’ll have to take my guns from my cold dead hands’

Posted on: February 4th, 2013

A video of a father, Bill Stevens, whose daughter attended Sandy Hook Elementary school, scene of the mass shooting in December, is making its rounds today of his testimony against gun control at a Working Group Public Hearing at the Connecticut State Capitol on gun violence prevention.

Although his daughter was not harmed in the shooting, his daughter’s friend’s little sister was a victim.

In his testimony, he was very clear on his stance against going after legal gun owners and that no one will take his freedom away to protect his daughter.

Stevens told the panel that he is not there to cite statistics, lives saved by a gun or the economic impact. He was there to remind those people about the U.S. Constitution and the 2nd Amendment, the Constitution of the State of Connecticut in regards to self-defense.

    A real American that has not been brainwashed by the progressives and their lapdog mainstream media. .

    Perfect from beginning to end.

  • ConstitutionReader

    This is all fine enough, but “self defense” is not the reason for the 2nd. Taming a government’s natural inclination towards tyranny is more the point.

      Mr. Stevens mentioned that in his testimony. He reminded them about the Constitution,…not that they care…but I do.

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear
    arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    I love it when a true man gets to tell these idiots what the our Constitution really says, not the BS they try and make it. the democrats hate the Constitution and everything it stands for like a good little obama puppet.

    For the dad who was in the video – GOOD FOR YOU, DAD! He is a “sheepdog,” who takes care of the sheep and will defend them to the death. God bless all Dads who feel this way.

  • Jackie Hutcheson

    This man has earned my admiration and respect. I would have loved to have seen the faces of the people he was talking to, especially since they probably don’t have the cajones to stand up to the idiot in the White House and say the things he said to them.

  • MRD

    Amen, good speech.

  • Ed Williams

    Kudos to Mr. Stevens.

  • Ruger S Redhawk

    Bravo! A man with guts and sense.

    “If” gun legislation ever becomes the law of the land and the citizens are disarmed by force
    Then only the two most dangerous elements of society will have guns – the criminals and politicians or if you prefer politicians and criminals! (interchangeable)
    Molon labe from my cold dead hands.

  • DenverKitty

    Mr. Stevens, BRAVO!!

  • Michael J Edwards

    Yay Bill Stevens

  • James Fontana

    HAd this man been at the school with his gun this incident may have been prevented or seriously diminished.

  • Sharon Tomas

    Very well done, Mr. Stevens.

  • Idadho

    This needs to go viral. I will be forwarding it to friends.

  • Flo

    Wonderfully spoken and articulated … Now the problem is whether or not the politicians (Democrats/Liberals) truly understand what his message was

  • WOW

    WOW! Mr. Stevens you are my new hero – THANK YOU!
