On Jan. 28th, public testimony by several parents of some of the children from Sandy Hook Elementary was heard at the Working Group Public Hearing Commission at the Connecticut State Capitol.
A few of the parents remarks were shown repeatedly on most news shows, their testimony spoke of support for new gun control.
Here are excerpted remarks from Bill Stevens, who`s daughter was at school that day, but not injured -
“My fifth grade daughter was in lock-down on Dec. 14, 2012. Unfortunately, her classmate’s little sister was murdered in Sandy Hook that day when lock-down and 9-11 weren’t enough to protect her from an evil person — not protect her from an assault rifle or some other inanimate object but from an evil person.”
He continues -
“I’m frankly shocked by some of the testimony today. In case some here failed American history, there is something called the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and a process by which to amend it. The same goes for the state Constitution. These rights are inalienable and endowed by our Creator — not you politicians — to all citizens regardless of gender, race or creed. In order to limit the rights of individual there is something called due process and legislation is not due process. You want to take my rights away? Let’s go to court.”
Another quote :
“My guns are not dangerous. They are at home locked up collecting dust and cat hair,” “But criminals and tyrants — tyrants especially — beware. Lockdown is not an option at the Stevens residence. And 9-11 will be dialed after the security of my home has been established.”
He concluded :
“Charlton Heston made the phrase ’from my cold, dead hands’ famous,” he concluded. “And I will tell you here today, you will take my ability to protect my Victoria from my cold, dead hands.”
