CT Residents Public Testimony: ‘The Constitution did not guarantee public safety, it guaranteed liberty’ (VIDEO)

In a gripping public testimony, Vernon Connecticut resident Robert Steed passionetly pleaded with local lawmakers to examine their overreaching gun control proposals that fly in face of his Constitutional pursuit of liberty.

“This is the third day I’ve taken off of work to come here to, like so many of the rest of us, to plead with you for us to keep our guns because of some wing-nut in Newtown, Connecticut,” he said. “If that isn’t inherently wrong, I don’t know what is. That these bills are even in proposed form is scary enough. That any of you could possibly be undecided is scary enough. What are you looking at?”

“I can’t for the life of me understand how this state can have as many gun laws on the books as it does and have members of its Legislature need to take firearms 101. And as far as what I felt were potshots taken at the NRA, they’ve done more for gun safety– they’ll do more for gun safety this weekend than this committee will do in your careers.”
