    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.
