You Cannot Legislate Away Insanity

The forensic scientist for the Bridgeport, Conn. Police Department sharply criticized proposed assault weapon and high-capacity magazine bans and pointed out the small number of crimes committed by high-capacity weapons in public hearing testimony last week.

Marshall K. Robinson, who said his area of expertise is “firearm and tool mark identification,” testified at the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group, which was convened at the Connecticut State Capitol in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. There he opposed statements from many of the other 1,300 speakers in attendance advocating for banning high-capacity AR-15 and AK-47 firearms.

Robinson pointed out that less than two percent of the firearms he has examined since 1996 that have been linked to violent crime in Bridgeport have been the caliber of AR-15 or AK-47 weapons.

    If we could legislate insanity, the majority of DC, Jesse Jackson and 99.99% of the libs would be in a looney bin!

    I would really prefer a 1st class trial followed by a public 1st class hanging!

  • Yes it is possible to legislate away mental illness. If there was a requirement for a Subliminal Distraction warning on every computer and piece of software sold much of what is believed to be mental illness would vanish. VisionAndPsychosis_Net

    Now wait a minute, if we do what Feinstein and Obarry wants, no one will have guns right. Like gun free school zones, the insane will not only have their way at schools, they could have their way all around the country. It been ruled by the Supreme Court that police officers are not required to protect you. Is this really what Obarry and the democraps want?

  • True. And it seems you can’t legislate ignorant fools from voting. And they always, always elect one of their kind. Which explains why Washington, from the WH on down, is infested with ignorant fools.
    Not to belittle the nut-jobs though. Especially not the elected ones.

    No but you CAN be insane and a legislator.
