One more way the NRA and gun nuts show their hatred for law enforcement was the bill they supported which would have made it legal to carry concealed weapons in any state based on the issuance of a concealed weapon permit in any one state. Law enforcement opposed this law. The NRA has a long history of opposing law enforcement. Law enforcement supports bans on semi-automatic assault weapsons, high capacity magazines, and armor piercing bullets. Law enforcement also supports universal background checks. The gun nuts oppose law enforcement on all these things - they are shameless and clearly are ok with the deaths of police officers. View Comment
M. Murray: You are really grasping at straws to suggest law enforcement does not support common sense and reasonable restrictions on firearms. The fact of the matter is that law enforcement does support bans on semi-automatic assault weapons; bans on high capacity magazines; bans on armor piercing bullets; and universal background checks. After all, law enforcement is our first line of defense to criminal activity. I suppose you have confidence in the gun lobby whose sole purpose is to sell as many firearms as possible. Yes, they really care about law enforcement - what a joke! Using your "logic", law enforcement is also probabably advocating private ownership of automatic machine guns, bazookas, grenade launchers and flame throwers. Again, wonderful logic!! View Comment
The right wing gun fanatics should be ashamed of themselves for the vile things they have said about the parents of the children who were slaughtered in Newtown. The gun fanatics should also be ashamed of themselves for opposing law enforcement who support bans on semi-automatic assault weapons; bans on high capacity magazines; bans on armor piercing bullets; and support universal background checks. The gun fanatics are clearly shameless. They are pawns to the gun and ammunition manufacturers and I pity them. View Comment
The gun nuts are always so quick to blather on about their idiocy and they are sickening. The thing they ignore is they take the opposite position of every major police organization; the overwhelming majority of police chiefs and big city mayors who support bans on semi-automatic assualt rifles, large capacity magazines and armor piercing bullets. I will defer to law enforcement before I defer to ignorant gun nuts. View Comment
Just so everyone is aware, the gun nuts have put out alerts to flood letters to the editor; radio talk shows; and on-line comments with their assinne pro-gun propaganda. The thing they will never admit is they take the opposite position of law enforcement which supports bans on semi-automatic assault weapons, high capacity magazines and armor piercing bullets. Police also support universal background checks. The gun nuts want police to die. The gun nuts also hate the parents of the children who were slaughtered in Sandy Hook. The gun nuts are truly disgusting people. View Comment
Norwalkspends4 - You are the one who brought the issue of abortion into this debate. Gun fanatics such as yourself who are also right to life fanatics often resort to violence (including shooting doctors who perform abortions). Gun nuts and right to life nuts is a dangerous combination. View Comment
Right Wing are wackos: Your post is a breath of fresh air. You are correct that the gun fanatics spew their lies and hatred. They hate the parents of the children who were slaughtered in Newtown with every fiber of their bodies. In a way, I really pity them since they are such pathetic people. Can you imagine what they must be like to live with? Scary thought. As I have pointed out, the gun nuts even hate law enforcement since they oppose bans on armor piercing bullets, high capacity magazines and military assault rifles. The gun nuts also oppose universal background checks. Every major police organization and virtually every chief of police support these measures. View Comment
The gun fanatics are once again slithering out of their holes. They are heartless and cruel which is evidenced by their hatred of the parents of the children slaughtered in Newtown. They despise those parents. They also despise law enforcement given that every major police organization and virtually all chiefs of police support universal background checks and bans on high capacity magazines; military assault weapons; and armor piercing bullets. The gun fanatics have no respect for law enforcement who are on the front line of protecting us. Shame on the gun fanatics. View Comment
The framers of our Constitution had no idea that there would be gun nuts using the second amendment to defend semi-automatic assault weapons; armor piercing bullets, etc. The gun nuts say they oppose gun control. Think about that for a moment - that means they want no restrictions on who can purchase firearm or the type of weapon that can be available to people. Gun nuts have no problem with a person with a criminal background buying a bazooka since the gun nuts oppose "Gun control". They are very sick people. View Comment
The gun nuts are crawling out of their holes to spew venim at brave leaders in government for addressing the issue with guns since 26 people (and many others) were slaughtered with assault weapons. The gun nuts ignore the fact that every major police organization and a majority of police chiefs support a ban on semi-automatic assault weapons; a limit on magazines; universal background checks; a ban on armor piercing bullets; the use of taggants. The gun nuts think it's ok for police officers to be slaughtered due to their infatuation with guns. They are sick people indeed - just look at their posts if you don't believe me. View Comment
It does not matter to the gun fanatics that 20 eight year old children had their faces blown apart by a semi-automatic assault weapon. The only thing that matters to them is their infatuation with guns and they are very sick poeple. The thing they will not admit is they are always on the opposite side of law enforcement with respect to issues regarding fire arms. Every major police organization and virtually all Connecticut police chiefs support a ban on semi-automatic assault weapons; universal background checks; a ban on cop-killer bullets; the use of taggants; and limiting the size of magazines. The gun fanatics hate law enforcement which is very sad and scary. View Comment
The comments of the gun fanatics reflect their ignorance. It's too bad they don't acknowledge that they are on the opposite of law enforcement based on their positions with respect to a ban on semi-automatic assault weapons; magazine sizes; universal background checks; taggants; cop killer bullets, etc. The gun fanatics would seem to favor harm done to members of our police departments. The gun fanatics also seem to have no problem with the fact that 20 eight year old children had their faces blown apart by semi-automatic assault weapons. The fanatics are very disturbed people.

The gun fanatics never cease to amaze me as their hypocrisy is glaring. Every major law enforcement organization as well as virtually all police chiefs in Connecticut support banning military assault rifles; universal background checks and limiting the size of magazines. Sadly and yet tellingly, the gun fanatics oppose law enforcement on all these issues. The gun fanatics also claim that all guns are going to be banned which is disingenuous on their part. The only people talking about banning all guns are the gun fanatics which is not even being proposed. It is a propaganda tool of the gun fanatics. I cannot fathom why the gun fanatics believe owning weapons that ripped the faces off seven year old kids is a good thing.
For the record, Bromer and Webbe unduly criticised the selectmen during the public comment portion of the meeting, but that’s not why they were arrested. They both disrupted the meeting in angry outbursts as the selectmen deliberated on subsequent agenda items, even after a time-out was called by First Selectman Herrmann with the hopes of calming things down. It is amazing to me that people such as jolereed actually support bullies like Bromer and Webbe. Truly amazing!
It is almost laughable that tomandjerry believes that Mr. Herrmann is an "appointed official". Mr. Herrmann was re-elected with 74% of the vote in the last election cycle. This is just one more example of the ignorance of the "crazies" in town. Another example is their support for Bert Webbe for treasurer who is the town meeting disrupter. View Comment
I could not agree more with the comments by Challoran and Deaneyes. Mr. Herrmann has done an excellent job running the town. There is a small group of people in town who complain about everything and they really do need to get a life. They are supporting a candidate running for treasurer who is so disruptive at town meetings that the police have been called. Their support of him speaks volumes for their true character. View Comment
