The Times-Dispatch reports:
“It’s something that shouldn’t have happened,” said Neil Heslin, whose 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was one of 20 students and six adults fatally shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.“It’s something that can’t happen again. It’s something that’s got to be changed, and we can help prevent that.”
Speaking to a sparse crowd — perhaps 15 local supporters — Heslin said one of the simplest things that could be done “to prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands” is for Congress to pass legislation that would expand background checks for all firearm transactions, including private sales.
“Background checks are not something that’s treading on anybody’s Second Amendment rights,” he added. “It has nothing to do with taking guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens.”
Echoing a repeated complaint from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose Mayors Against Illegal Guns organization is sponsoring the 25-state national bus tour, Heslin said many guns that show up on the streets of New York and are used in crimes come from Virginia and North Carolina. “Background checks would help cut down on that,” he said.
If you do the math, at an average of just 15 attendees per event this nationwide bus tour could inspire 375 rabid protestors. And who knows where it could go from there???
As Bloomberg has consistently told us, 90% of people support stricter background checks. Bloomberg would not lie to us would he?
“Does a bear pee in the woods?”
So the biggest question is, if 90% of the nation is behind this cause then…
Where the hell are they hiding Bloomberg?
