Daughter of Newtown Victim Confronts GOP Senator for Voting Against Gun Control Bill at Tense Town Hall Meeting, Storms Out After Response

During a town hall event in Warren, N.H. on Tuesday, the daughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung went after Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) for voting against expanding background checks on all firearms sales.
“You had mentioned that day the burden on owners of gun stores that the expanded background checks would cause,” Erica Lafferty said during the town hall. “I am just wondering why the burden of my mother being gunned down in the halls of her elementary school isn’t more important than that.”
“Erica, certainly let me just say that I’m obviously so sorry, and as everyone here no matter what our views are, for what you have been through,” Ayotte replied, later adding that she wants to prevent that kind of mass shooting from ever occurring again.
The GOP senator went on to say that the Sandy Hook tragedy didn’t happen because of a flawed “background check system.” She stressed the importance of addressing mental health concerns moving forward.
Ayotte also offered to speak additionally with Lafferty and said she respected her differing viewpoint on background checks.
Lafferty ultimately stormed out of the room after the interaction, according to NBC News, because she “had had enough.”

Maybe if your Mom had been packing no one would have died....Just a thought.

Background checks wouldn't have stopped what happened at Sandy Hook. That girl needs to get off her cross, use the wood from that to build a bridge, and get OVER IT.
I'm sorry, but these people really make me angry. I'm sorry you lost a loved one, but it's not the guns fault. It's the fault of the sick person who pulled the trigger.

Exactly - none of this legislation would have stopped Sandy Hook from happening.

I have to wonder if Ms. Lafferty will be showing up at town hall meetings sponsored by the Democrats who joined in a bipartisan effort to vote down the bill?

You show a complete lack of empathy for this woman who is suffering, and exhibit all of the traits of intolerance and demeaning for which Gun Lobbyists are famous. You clearly support NO background checks at all (such as at Gun Shows, Private Sales) - is that because you would never pass such checks yourself?

Murder by gun in the USA is 4 X HIGHER than in ANY other developed Nation. It is in fact 32 X HIGHER than in the UK (Deaths per 100,00)

Surely, a "Sick" person would be weeded out if proper checks were in in place??

Of course you have to "wonder"....because you NRA types see Conspiracy around every corner - it fogs your minds, prevents rational thought, and having a gun in your posession makes you all think that you are Rambo - who was also feeble minded.

In reality, an extensive 2004 report by the National Academy of Science was not able to identify a single gun control regulation that actually reduces violent crime, suicides or accidents, Beck said. The NAS panel reviewed 253 journal articles, 99 books, 43 government publication and some of its own empirical work on firearms.
One of the main pillars of the gun control argument is the claim that more gun laws will make Americans safer. Because the facts do not support such a claim, one would think the scales would be tipped in favor of gun rights.
A University of Pennsylvania study also determined that the 1994 "assault weapons" ban did little to reduce violence while in effect.


decade after England practically banned all firearms in 1997, crime with handguns had doubled, armed street gangs caused British police to start carry guns and the country still experienced a mass shooting. Additionally, the homicide rate rose dramatically for seven years after the ban -- from 1.1 per 100,000 to 1.8 per 100,000.
Australia also enacted strict restrictions on firearms ownership following a mass shooting in 1996. The change in gun violence was so small that it was "statically irrelevant," Beck said.
On the other hand, Switzerland has the third highest gun ownership rate in the world and a murder rate of 0.5 per 100,000. The country's murder rate is well below Australia, the U.K. and Canada while its gun laws are less strict.

Best and Brightest: College Students Sign Petition to “Ban Pressure Cookers” *Video*

Not to be outdone by the hundreds of Californians who recently signed a petition to authorize a government sponsored door-to-door confiscations of firearms, college students in Miami-Dade county have stepped up in the interest of America’s safety and security to ban another hazardous weapon of mass destruction – the common kitchen pressure cooker.
You can’t make this stuff up…
Posing as a liberal activist, the petitioner makes her case by claiming pressure cookers, “were actually used in the Boston bombing, so we’re just trying to limit who can get them,” adding that her organization is, “just trying to keep people safe by reducing the number of them.”
Our best and brightest were more than happy to oblige.
Due to the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon, caused by bombs that were made with pressure cookers, we are asking that they be removed from shelves at local stores in the Miami-Dade county area.
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to ban the sale of pressure cookers in the Miami-Dade county area.

I can't believe people actually signed this! There must be too much fluoride in the water...

The video in the link I posted is what's really funny. It just shows her going up to them (dressed in a Obama T-Shirt, LOL) and talking to them, and they sign the petition. I'm sorry, it's just funny. Next the liberal anti gunners will be saying we need background checks for pressure cookers....

There are many more ways to stop mass shootings then With Gun Control. Gun control is one thing that needs to be implemented in the United States, not a gun ban. Gun control is something that just as easily means background checks so the wrong people don't get guns easily. It might in-convince you in the short term but wont effect you at all.
