David Codrea has this interesting post at War on Guns, along with video: Malloy v Visconti.
Visonti @4:27 -- "If they wanted to do something, they could have looked at the 30-round magazine that Adam Lanza used, and just targeted that."
Well, that sure sounds "no-compromise." How helpful.
And Malloy lets slip why they want to ban standard capacity magazines:
Malloy @6:22 -- "The reality of large capacity magazines is they do allow a madman, or a disturbed individual, or someone with malice, or for that matter, someone who wants to fight against the federal government for whatever reason..."
Also, David has some comments about the Tiger Talkers.
He quotes me here and rightly sneers:
Not to mention the inconvenience!No matter, People who won't send an email, forward a link or even install Adblock will endure indeterminately-extended real world hardships and sacrifices to save us!And they'll do it smugly, too, with an air of amused Que sera, sera superiority, although I would be curious to know what practical and moral leadership such people have shown at averting literal hell on earth, up close and personal. Cede the entire political arena to those who would rule all, without lifting a finger? Ingenious!
Meantime, I was forwarded this story from May of this year by a reader about Dave Ragozzine, who wrote "Anyone can have a blog, who cares what the dude says(?)"
Mr. Ragozzine, it seems, scared the politicos of Connecticut for saying this on-line:
“If you really want to save your state and country, you will become disobedient and do God’s work to save this nation,” Ragozzine allegedly wrote. “We need violence, we need to take out the scumbags. Locally, Malloy needs to be taken out. He must pay in blood for the crimes he has committed against this country, this state, and the constitution. Our founders and the first 111% wouldn’t have let him last one day in office.”
These were judged to be injudicious statements by the Connecticut State Police, the story continues:
Ragozzine, of 17 Mountain View Terrace, Apt. 3, in Winchester, was arraigned Friday in Superior Court on charges of inciting injury to a person or property, a Class C felony, and second-degree threatening.
Now, as the CSP is also investigating me for the quadruple sins of making a seditious speech, smuggling forbidden magazines, writing open letters, and posting the home addresses and phone numbers of the tyrants who passed the Intolerable Act, I am sympathetic to Mr. Ragozzine's situation. I will say that my own words and actions were chosen a bit more carefully than his, but that hasn't prevented the authorities from trying to figure out how to nail my ass to Red Mike "KGB" Lawlor's barn door. Thus, as I have skin in this Connecticut game, I would be curious to know what the disposition of Mr. Ragozzine's case was.
