Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against Conn. Gun Law

, The Connecticut Law Tribune

Connecticut's bill originally stemmed from a legislative task force charged with reviewing the state's gun laws, mental health care and school security following the Dec. 14 school shooting that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead. Those recommendations were passed onto the top leaders of the General Assembly, both Democrats and Republicans, who ultimately crafted a compromise bill behind closed doors that was approved on bipartisan votes by the House and Senate and signed by Malloy.

The bill was designated as "emergency certified" and therefore bypassed public hearings and committee votes.

    I am disappointed but not surprised. The government has wide latitude to set its own procedural rules and to bypass them when they see fit. It is very frustrating to see the legislature operate in this fashion. As citizens, we like to participate in the process of determining what laws we will have imposed upon us. Connecticut's lawmakers, even if they agree with the law that was passed, should be ashamed of the method they used to do it.

    The process is the punishment. Due process for citizens is being strangled and the 2nd ammendment is being used as the wedge issue to do it with. There is at least one judge who needs to be impeached.
