Letter from a resident of Newtown, CT

The letter below was published on Jan. 10, 2013, in The Newtown Bee, the local paper of Newtown, CT, where the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre occurred.
It is also now confirmed — SURPRISE! [snark] — that government officials (including Congress, of course), law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel are exempted from Sen. Diane Feinstein’s assault weapons gun ban bill, by far the most ambitious of the number of gun-control bills introduced in the wake of the massacre.
H/t my friend Nancy

CNN #2 The school these police officers were running into is not Sandy Hook Elementary School. Aren’t you at all curious why CNN would do that? See “CNN deception: Live aerial footage of police running into Sandy Hook was of another school.

Elected Officials Are Fundamentally Dishonest

To the Editor:
This letter was forwarded to Barack Obama, John Boehner, Chris Murphy, Dick Blumenthal, Elizabeth Esty, and Harry Reid
I live in Sandy Hook, CT. My family and close friends weren’t harmed on December 14. That day impacted 26 families with an indescribable, staggering pain and anguish. For most of Sandy Hook, it merely affected us with an inescapable intensity of sadness and grief.
Gun control has long been a focus of many in this country. Though I’m not knowledgeable of all the nuances of the Second Amendment, based on the Founding Fathers’ circumstances, it had far more to do with enabling the citizenry to protect themselves against tyrannical government than against local psychopaths. It is about providing a balanced firepower so when King George’s successor came knocking on your door, you could fight back. Government today is no less inclined to abuse its authority than it was then. Based on the absurd and ongoing power grab that is present day Washington, it’s as threatening as ever.
That so many of you view the NRA with its resistance to further restrictions on firearms as intransigent lunatics has far more to do with how you conduct yourselves in office than it does with the NRA’s actions.
You in public office are fundamentally dishonest people. You lead lives of deception at every turn, structuring your lives as comfortably as you can while governing with an indifference and arrogance that is absolutely maddening. When the country is reeling from financial disaster, you waste a trillion dollars on a health care bill we can’t afford and you’ve never read. You claim it’s critical because health care costs are killing this country… no they’re not, you are! You are killing this country. You endorse the ongoing slaughter of millions of unborn children and whine when terrorists are water boarded. You can’t lecture us right in Newtown High School about not doing enough to keep our children safe, while simultaneously slaughtering the unborn. You fabricate the intense, media laden drama of the fiscal cliff and lack the courage to do anything about truly reforming the obscene gluttony of government. You know you’ll be out of office before the bill comes due… you don’t care and have no integrity nor honor.
You lie whenever and wherever you need to to move forth your agenda. Were you able, you would purge the US of guns… every last gun in the country, if you could. So please forgive Wayne LaPierre and those of us who don’t trust you as far as we can spit. You’re a dishonest lot, motivated by a distorted worldview. If mass murder prevention were truly your goal, you would welcome armed security wherever needed. It is outrageous that we protect our money with far more firepower than we protect our children.
I have never owned a gun, nor wanted to as intensely as right now. You’ll stop restricting guns when only you have them.

I find this more interesting.
My partner and I became fed up with the mainstream media’s depiction of what took place in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012. So on January 20 we traveled there from our home in Ottawa Canada in an effort to visit the sites and respectfully approach the locals. https://memoryholeblog.com/2013/01/28/an-inquisitive-couples-visit-to-newtown-connecticut/


EVERYBODY with any common sense at all KNOWS that Washington DC is nothing but a “DEN OF THIEVES” and it has been every since Dis-Honest Abe Lincoln! Since Lincoln, presidents decided to overlook the Constitution just like Lincoln did! Since Lincoln when they want something, ANYTHING IN THEIR EYES WAS NOW CONSTITUTIONAL! Crooked Lawyers writing Uncontitutional Laws and and Federal Supreme Court Justices telling the lawyers that is OK! So what happens to the HONEST Citizen, he becomes the pawn and person that EVERYBODY steals from from local law to federal law and NOBODY seems to care that we have… Read more »


At least the letter writer gets it.

Forgive the pun, but talk about a “straight shooter.” That letter is filled with righteous contempt, and raw truth. I wonder if any of its recipients will recognize themselves in it. A part of me finds tak’s account quite strange, and another feels pity for the microscope the entire town is under since the tragedy. Reliving it is no doubt painful, and I’m sure many residents feel that they have been laid bare to judgement by the entire world. Yet the paper avoiding questions based on their own reporting, and the police woman’s strangely maternal assurances that this was an… Read more »


I read the account. I found it very interesting, as many commenters pointed out, that some of the signs on the school to keep people out, had spelling errors! Sloppy, sloppy. I mean seriously, aren’t those signs mass produced?


No military or retired military on there… guess left/liberal Democrat politicians and gov’t employees only trust public service union law enforcement and retirees (like DHS and TSA) to own such evil “assault weapons,” etc.
