More than 40,000 new AR-15 pattern black rifles have been manufactured in the U.S. since the Newtown tragedy: http://blackriflecounter.tumblr.com/

Senator's Murphy comments, without completing the investigation, might indicated that his political donators are pushing for more of what might have contributed to the mass murder in Newtown, CT. "waiting lines for treatment?" Senator Chris Murphy has some explaining to do on that statement. He should call for finishing the mass murder investigation, not advocating for more mental health that might have been a contributing factor to Adam's state of mind. Senator Murphy should back up his statement with some facts. Ablechild would like to share some facts about the current mental health system. One it is totally funded now with massive influence on our government. Actually Senator Murphy should remember, I see his name within the government document (link below) "behavioral health oversight", Shouldn't we question where this oversight was in the Adam Lanza Case? http://www.cga.ct.gov/ph/medicaid/mmcc/bh_Oversight/bhoc1104.htm

Christopher Murphy's father works at the law firm of Shipman and Goodwin, the CT law firm with control of the Board of Educations (BOEs) in 80 districts out of 167/169 - depending on redistricting. With Berchem, Moses and Devlin law firm (which represents between 14-30 other districts - depending on what year it is) - the 2 firms control HALF the CT school districts - which control 68% of all CT local tax dollars and they have National influence with National boards of education. The two law firms have been using the same "judge" or hearing officer to allegedly "rig" hearings against families and CT school children for YEARS (they used her in my case in Newtown, CT and she drove down all the way from New Hampshire to "rig" the outcome even though ALL HER hearings are void in the eyes of law because she has been doing hearings OUT OF SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION FOR YEARS & the lawyers KNOW it because some of them were on the panel who CHOSE them to be in their positions. Interview me - I have it all here and made it public hearing IN NEWTOWN, CT 4/5/2012 the night before my husband was killed.: http://www.hamdendailynews.com/ArchivesSchoolsJan06.html

My sympathies to the families. This should never have happened but it is the end of a disastrous recipe that has been cooking for a long time. Partners in law firms are responsible for what the other attorneys do. This all fell on deaf ears when I wrote to Gov. Malloy, the CT Bar and when I brought my grievance to the CT Grievance committee. Cleanupticut Corrupticut and maybe kids would have a chance. This all ties into the children getting add/adhd drugs and labeled that so schools get $ and section 504 disability gets "alledegly rigged hearings" because the attorneys know that the federal anti-discrimination law is their downfall and would give ALL AMerican children school choice, so BIG $ behind all this. Then, the kid on medication grows up and outside society's boundaries and the public schools because of their non-disclosure of Rxs, attorney/administrator relationship, etc...these kids' minds are all messed up and they are truly the first victims in a long line of the sad and tragic downfall of the American school system. my email: spinach135@gmail.com

There's bigger problem than guns why don't they concentrate on helping mentally ill people first instead of putting another band aid fix. gun bans won't help this type of stuff will continue to happen and anything can be used!! I lost my parents to a gun but its not the guns fault it was my fathers finger that pulled the trigger people need to think with there minds and not there hearts before bigger problems are created and these politicians need to stop worrying about making them selfs look good and actually do something about the bigger problem my father was a vet and the vet hospital was a joke they couldn't help him physically or mentally and this is what happened!! So to those of you who think guns are the cause I will tell you you are in for a rude awaking when this happens again and was something other than a gun and turns out to be way worse than what will you blame wake up people lets work together anti and pro gun people need to figure this out but not before mental issues are addressed first .taken things from honest law abiding citizens is not the answer the criminals and terrorist don't care about laws much like drunk drivers and drug addicts dont care lets sit back and think about how making drinking and driving , drugs and how about texting and driving illegal is working it still happens everyday and innocent people still get hurt!!!!

Mario Como IS the MAN !!!!!!!!!!!!! New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is signing a tough and sweeping new gun control bill into law late Tuesday. The bill limits magazines to seven bullets; increases penalties for gun crimes; gives the state more power to take away guns from mentally ill people; and bans semi-automatic rifles and handguns that have a "military-style feature," such as a bayonet lug. The ban goes into effect immediately. People who already own such guns are grandfathered in but must register them with the state. New York is the first state to pass a gun law since the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., sparked a national debate on gun violence. "I am proud to be governor, not just because New York has the first bill, but because New York has the best bill," Cuomo said before signing it. "I'm proud to be a New Yorker because New York is doing something, we are fighting back." The Republican-controlled Senate approved the bill on Monday night, with the Democratic Assembly approving it Tuesday afternoon. Blue state governors in several other states—including Connecticut, Maryland and Delaware—are also pushing for new gun laws.

What I find most stressfull is the fact that the proposed course of action does not fit the problem. I couldn't agree with you more. Let's have an honest conversation about the root of the issues and even better enforcing current laws before tightening the noose. We have a guest writer on our blog http://muzzlefront.com/guest-blog-chris-byrne/ He has some neat perspectives on the topic. Keep on spreading the good word. Muzzles Front
