Why were they raided and why was their firearms license revoked?  Were they doing something we don't know about yet?  I hate what Lanza did but you can't hold them responsible for it if that is what this is about.

That is very strange and pointless.

Sounds like someone is pandering to the vox populi, and just dealing arbitrary "justice".
Like "putting down" a lion that mauls some idiot who gets into the lion's enclosure and then throws rocks at it. It achieves nothing, it just makes some people "feel better".

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Probably to make a example out of them for selling guns to a parent of a mental ill child. And it's probably one of those "Somebody has to pay, why not them?" mentality, since Lanza's mother is not around to take the total blame.


The owner of the shop will probably be sued next.

So if you sell someone a car that can't drive worth a darn and they kill someone they can come back and take your dealers license.  What a presidence to set.

Absurd.

If they broke any laws, then sure, revoke the license.  Even the NRA would support that.

But if this is just some feel good crap some politician is pulling, then they should sue and sue big.

I doubt anyone would agree that removing the shop's license without cause is a good thing.

However - combining this with Obama's recent speech, where he claimed that the weapon used was a fully automatic - maybe that particular shop's being doing some illegal modifications.

Time will tell, either way.

Let's see, the odds that this shop was illegally modifying weapons and the first we've heard about it was a gun control speech by the President 4 months later vs Obama, like almost all anti-2nd Amendment politicians of late, playing fast and loose with gun terminology to increase the shock value of their comments.......I think I'll go with the latter in this case.

I didn't think Obama said that but if he did then he'd be wrong. The details of this case have been so screwed up and misinformed, intentionally so. Nothing's more dangerous than the truth for enacting gun control laws.

I have no actual evidence that the two are connected. I just suspect that they might be. Feel free to believe otherwise.

Here's an article from Breitbart confirming that he said it at a recent fundraiser.

Perhaps the shop was closed so that certain evidence could be secured and protected?  Certain paperwork or something?

You had me chuckling there a few posts back, suggesting that an illegal weapon was somehow involved. :tsu:   But what funnier was that innuendo suggesting Obama's statement was somehow factual.  Not to mention this is a government whose justice dept was running guns to Mexico.  The hypocrisy is very rich.

As it's so obviously hilarious - presumably you have actual evidence to the contrary?
