Come And Take Them !
” A report it photo from a viewer is sending shock waves across social media and the state Tuesday. The photo was snapped at a local gun store and it shows a [sic]Bolt Action Rifle, resting on a baby’s lap.
That picture of the sixth-month-old baby girl with the rifle in front of her was taken by her father at Woodbridge Firearms Trading Post. He and the store owner say it’s just a picture, others say it’s just wrong.
The baby girl is becoming very popular on social media. The picture of the baby with a rifle resting on her lap was sent in to News 8 through our Report It feature and many are reacting.
“ She can’t even speak yet and she has a gun in her hand and it’s bizarre,” said Alexa Grose, Seymour.
Baby Genevieve without the gun, with her bottle and her dad, Christopher Duffy, met News 8′s Erin Logan at Woodbridge Firearms where Duffy bought the gun.”
The original hysterical story comes from WTNH while the Blaze offers a much more even-handed take on this manufactured “controversy” including some fabulous comments(see below) aimed at the busybodies whose lives must be perfect given they have so much time to worry about other people’s business . Read the comments and enjoy …
If the hand-wringers and do-gooders of the left really need something to raise their blood pressure they should have a look at these pics … These will raise the stroke rates among the mom jean set …
Oh my heavens … kids with guns !
Psst … don’t tell anyone but these young lady shooters went to school in DC … imagine that , guns in Washington DC children’s hands … Horrors … and under the auspices of the DC school system no less … Elizabeth I’m coming to join you !
Oh no … more school girls with guns … Have you called the EMT’s
Here we have the ultimate horror … children being taught to shoot those “evil assault” rifles … are you lefties still conscious ?
Here’s one more just in case cardiac arrest still eludes the nannies among us …
Believe it or not you busybody milksops there are millions of us parents who have been teaching our children gun safety and shooting for as long as the kids have been old enough to absorb the lessons , just as we were taught by our parents .
And you know what ? Our households aren’t the ones that suffer from accidental shootings or juvenile delinquency . Our children grow up with a healthy respect for the power of firearms instead of the irrational fear of inanimate instruments that you teach yours . Knowledge and respect prevent the disasters inherent with ignorant curiosity .
It is only a desire to maintain my son’s and my own privacy that prevents me from posting video of my 11 year old blazing away at the range with a full auto HK MP-5 . He’s an awesome shot with that , pistols and rifles . Soon to be better than his dad . That flick would surely require the paramedics .

” Wolfgang W. Halbig doesn’t believe anyone was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012, and he’s looking for some answers. So many answers, in fact, that he was paid a visit by some police investigators telling him to back off.
Mr. Halbig isn’t your average “conspiracy theorist.” He’s worked in public education as a teacher, dean, assistant principal, principal of an alternative school and as the Director for School Safety and Security for the Seminole County Public Schools, a school district of approximately 65,000 students.
A former Florida State Trooper and United States Customs Inspector, Mr. Halbig was invited by the U.S. Department of Justice to train over 3,500 school police officers, school superintendents and school principals. He travels the country providing presentations and keynotes to a variety of school board associations and conferences and is a nationally-recognized school safety and security expert and consultant, who has provided safety training and school assessments for more than 4,000 school districts nationwide.
Dave Gahary spoke with Wolfgang about why he doesn’t believe the official story of the Sandy Hook Elementary School event, in this interesting interview (43:23). “
” In 35 states, welfare, housing assistance and other benefits pays more than a minimum wage job, according to a new study by the Cato Institute. The study also found that in 13 states, the payout is more than $15 per hour.
Of course, this study doesn’t take into account that not everyone on public assistance receives all of the programs. But if they did, their payout would be significantly higher than even a starting teacher’s salary in 11 states or a computer programmer in 3 states.
The states with the highest welfare payouts – more than $20 per hour – are Hawaii, with payments equaling $29.13 per hour, DC at $24.43 per hour, Massachusetts at $24.30 , Connecticut at $21.33, New York at $21.01 per hour, New Jersey at $20.89 per hour, Rhode Island at $20.83 per hour and Vermont at $20.36 per hour.“
The Problem For Gun Control Advocates Is That They Keep Promising That No Way Will Registration Lead To Confiscation Of Firearms, Even As It Does Just That.
” The problem for gun control advocates is that they keep promising that no way will registration lead to confiscation of firearms, even as it does just that. The Brady Campaign’s Dennis A. Henigan accuses the National Rifle Association of peddling “fear” for even raising the possibility. In the New York Times, Charles Blow calls such concerns “cultural paranoia.”
Yet gun owners seem to have legitimate worries. Hundreds of New York City residents are receiving, and publicizing, letters demanding the surrender, not of scary “assault weapons,” whatever arbitrary definition may locally apply to that slippery term, but of target rifles and cowboy guns. Among the forbidden items gleaned from New York City registration lists and ordered to be surrendered or removed from city limits are the bolt-action Marlin 25N, and lever-action Browning 92 and Winchester 94 rifles. Semi-automatic rifles of the plinking variety, such as the AR-7, have been targeted, too.”

” A summary of the nearly yearlong investigation into the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was released by a Connecticut state’s attorney Monday, shedding little new light on the shooting that killed 26 people, including 20 children, on Dec. 14, 2012.
The 48-page report describes how 20-year-old gunman Adam Lanza killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, at their Newtown home before driving to the school, forcing his way in and fatally shooting 20 first-graders and six educators with an assault rifle.
But it does not establish a motive for Lanza, who turned a gun on himself as police arrived.The report concluded that Lanza acted alone.”
Lanza had mental issues ? Who would have guessed ?
” Lanza clearly had mental health issues, but prosecutors have no idea whether they contributed to his decision to take the lives of 20 children — a decision they say was meticulously premeditated. And they do not know why he chose Sandy Hook Elementary School for his crime, except perhaps that it was close to his home.”
This whole mad act stinks and has from day one and this report does nothing to clarify anything , seeming at times to be a snowjob of the entire horrific event . We are not typical conspiracy theorists but it gets harder every day to have any faith in official utterances of any kind as we are regularly bombarded with reports of authoritative corruption and abuse of power .
Cadillac World Thorium Fuel Concept Car
” There are now over one billion cars traveling roads around the world directly and indirectly costing trillions of dollars in material resources, time and noxious emissions. Imagine all these cars running cleanly for 100 years on just 8 grams of fuel each.
Laser Power Systems (LPS) from Connecticut, USA, is developing a new method of automotive propulsion with one of the most dense materials known in nature: thorium. Because thorium is so dense it has the potential to produce tremendous amounts of heat. The company has been experimenting with small bits of thorium, creating a laser that heats water, produces steam and powers a mini turbine.”
A single gram of Thorium produces the energy equivalent of 7,400 gallons of gasoline . Read this for a primer on the natural element and ponder the alternative energy possibilities .
” Thorium is a naturally occurring radioactive chemical element with the symbol Th and atomic number 90. It was discovered in 1828 by the Norwegian mineralogist Morten Thrane Esmark and identified by the Swedish chemist Jöns Jakob Berzelius and named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder.
Thorium produces a radioactive gas, radon-220, as one of its decay products. Secondary decay products of thorium include radium and actinium. In nature, virtually all thorium is found as thorium-232, which undergoes alpha decay with a half-life of about 14.05 billion years. Other isotopes of thorium are short-lived intermediates in the decay chains of higher elements, and only found in trace amounts. Thorium is estimated to be about three to four times more abundant than uranium in the Earth’s crust, and is chiefly refined from monazite sands as a by-product of extracting rare earth metals.
Thorium was once commonly used as the light source in gas mantles and as an alloying material, but these applications have declined due to concerns about its radioactivity. Thorium is also used as an alloying element in nonconsumable TIG welding electrodes.
Canada, China, Germany, India, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States have experimented with using thorium as a substitute nuclear fuel in nuclear reactors. When compared to uranium, there is a growing interest in thorium-based nuclear power due to its greater safety benefits, absence of non-fertile isotopes and its higher occurrence and availability. India’s three stage nuclear power programme is possibly the most well known and well funded of such efforts.“
Here is a documentary from the Motherboard Youtube channel on the Thorium Dream .
And what would a dream energy source be if without controversy and conspiracy?
As the Professor says , Faster Please …
” Connecticut Police raided the home of Joseph Callahan, 69, confiscated more than 270 guns and he was charged with several felonies, including 11 counts of illegal possession of explosives and six counts of first-degree reckless endangerment. Was Callahan really endangering anyone or planning some sort of terrorist attack? No, he was not.
According to Callahan’s attorney, Richard Meehan, he is just a collector, a gun aficionado, and a hoarder. Meehan also claims that Callahan is a retired chemist and collector who had no “nefarious intent” when items were discovered at his upscale Fairfield home.
Not mentioned in many of the reports was the fact that Callahan is a chemist by trade and actually has a federal permit to possess explosives. Yet, the ATF was involved with the investigation and failed to cease and desist their tyranny against Mr. Callahan.
Callahan was arraigned on October 16. His attorney says he will return to court on November 5 and plead not guilty.
There is no limit to the number of guns one can own under the Second Amendment. Obviously, Mr. Callahan had a federal permit to possess explosives and quite frankly, I can drive 1 mile in any direction and get M-80s by the hundreds if I want them without a permit. So the bigger question is, why did law enforcement not follow the law here? Why did they drag this man through all of this? Can you say Police State? Can you say tyranny? “
And so it begins … They will start with the known large gun collections , note that according to the story all the guns were legally “registered” , and gradually move to find excuses to spread their net ever wider in an effort to “legally” confiscate citizen’s firearms without actually stating that that is their intention . Statism is on the march .
” Please tell me once again, gun grabbers, how well your laws work:
The arrest of three juveniles suspected of committing two weekend robberies led to the arrest of a fourth who was manufacturing and selling homemade firearms, police said.
The robberies happened over the weekend in the East Rock area, according to police. When the suspects were apprehended, one of them was in possession of a homemade “zip-gun,” police said.
Detectives obtained a search and seizure warrant for a residence on Mountain Ridge Road using the information provided by the three juveniles. Inside, officers found another assembled gun, a partially assembled gun and other gun components, police said.
A juvenile living in the residence was arrested and later told police that he had made and sold as many as 12 “zip-guns,” police said.
Guns can be incredibly low tech, and if you doubt me, read up on how simple it is to make a Sten submachine gun some time.”
Connecticut Police REFUSED To Send A Hostage Negotiator To Petit Home The Morning They Were Brutally Murdered
” Connecticut police decided against sending a hostage negotiator to the home of the Petit family on the morning they were brutally murdered, it has emerged.
Jennifer Hawke-Petit was raped and strangled to death and her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, were tied to their beds and died when the house in Cheshire was set alight on July 23, 2007.
The girls’ father, Dr. William Petit was beaten and tied up but escaped the flames, living to see
Joshua Komisarjevsky and Stephen Hayes be sentenced to death in 2011 for the murders.
On the sixth anniversary of the horrific killings, the Hartford Courant has obtained police calls through law enforcement sources showing that officers with the Cheshire Police Department doubted the danger underway at the household.”
” The Goshen Fire Department in Waterford along with the U.S. Coast Guard station New London responded to a sinking yacht off the shore of Harkness State Park in Waterford on Saturday evening.
Emergency officials described the vessel as a 63′ yacht.
The eight people on board were safely taken off the boat by a good Samaritan.
At this hour, the fire department tells Eyewitness News that Tow Boat U.S. based out of Niantic will salvage the $1.599 million dollar boat.”
” The shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., have brought into high relief one of the anachronisms of the American economy: Some of the biggest and most influential makers of firearms in the United States are located in some of its bluest – and most antigun – states.
He is scheduled to visit Colt’s Manufacturing, which has been in Connecticut since 1847, and Mossberg & Sons of North Haven, Conn., the largest maker of shotguns in the US, among other manufacturers and suppliers in Connecticut and New York.”
Good for Governor Perry . Here’s wishing him much success .
” The killings of 20 first-grade students and six adult staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012, obviously constitutes a terrible, newsworthy event. But the news coverage did more than report the details of what happened at Newtown. It also sought to classify this incident as an instance of a larger problem. The initial news reports described what had happened as “the second deadliest school shooting,” “another mass shooting,” and a “mass killing” (all in stories in the next day’s New York Times) and as “the second deadliest shooting event in U.S. history” (The Washington Post). The Post’s website ranked the 12 “Deadliest U.S. shootings” (the earliest case on their list occurred in 1949), while the Mother Jones website added Newtown to its page “A Guide to Mass Shootings in America” (which included only cases from 1982 to 2012).”
The categorization of “mass shootings” , “mass murders” , “workplace violence” or whatever other clever nomenclature that happens to be in vogue are decided upon by the media that reports on the stories and we would do well to remember that the present day media , the so-called mainstream anyway , are anything but dispassionate observers and reporters of fact .
” According to The New Republic, there were 70 mass shootings between 1982 and 2012, leaving 543 people dead. The magazine does not say whether this death toll includes the shooters, who often—but not always—also die. But let us assume that only the shooters’ victims were counted. (Amy Sullivan, the New Republic article’s author, says she believes that is the case.) That works out to about 2.3 incidents and 18 victims’ deaths per year. Last year was an unusually bad year, with 68 people killed in seven mass shootings—a terrible toll, to be sure. But in the context of some 2.5 million deaths from all causes last year, mass shootings, while dramatic, are simply not a major cause of death. And because these events are quite rare, and their number fluctuates from year to year, it is difficult to determine a clear trend. The horrors of 2012 made it easy from some commentators to claim that mass shootings were on the rise, but should there be fewer cases in 2013, it is unlikely that people will note that the problem is growing smaller.”
As with most any news items today , how events are portrayed in the media is really more an issue of what particular ax the reporting organization has to grind than it is a fair illustration of the facts .
“Rep. John Larson (D., Conn.), is saying that “this is simply not fair” – as key staff members head for the exits to avoid Obamacare.
… many on Capitol Hill fear it could lead to a brain drain” and notes that “[t]he problem is far more acute in the House, where lawmakers and aides are generally younger and less wealthy.”
Mr Larson , we are of the opinion that there is little brain to drain in Congress . Politics is a magnet for the mediocre and you are living proof . The truly smart excel in the real world and have no need of attaching themselves to the public teat .
” What? Obamacare disproportionally hurts those with lower incomes? It may come as a surprise, but it shouldn’t. We’ve known this since before the legislation even passed.
More to the point, why did Rep. Larson vote to impose on the country a health coverage system that “is simply not fair”?
We hope you and your fellow Reps and Senators choke on it . That will be “fair” .

We visited PTR Industries to get a firsthand look at the company, their operation, and employees living on the front lines of the gun control debate.”
Police Fatally Shoot ‘Drunk’ 75-Year-Old Korean War Vet On Memorial Day Weekend In Posh Connecticut Mansion
” The founder and president of a Connecticut military museum was shot and killed at his home by police after he pointed a handgun at officers, Connecticut state police said Sunday.
State police identified the man killed Friday in Ridgefield as 75-year-old John Valluzzo.”
Let me get this straight , the girlfriend was free to call her friend in Florida yet didn’t call police .
” Connecticut’s News Times reports that Valluzzo’s girlfriend called a friend in Florida about 5:15 p.m. Friday and said Valluzzo was intoxicated and waving a gun around. The friend called police, who raced to the home to find Valluzzo still armed.”
She never says to her friend that she was being threatened , nor attempted to call the police herself , just that he ” was intoxicated and waving a gun around ” . Why did she stay in the home ? If the man was intoxicated and armed why didn’t she leave him to his own devices ?
Seems to us that if the girlfriend felt endangered she should have left , period . Perhaps then Mr Valluzzo would still be alive . This would seem to be a truly senseless tragedy .
” There’s Versace’s former home, priced at $100 million, Steven Cohen’s $115 million apartment and a Manhattan penthouse listed at $125 million. But none of them hold a candle to Copper Beech Farm and its 50 acres of waterfront in Greenwich, CT, which recently hit the market at $190 million, becoming the most expensive listing in the U.S. (Click here or on the photo to go to a slideshow.)”
” While the house is impressive — public records measure it at 13,519 square feet with 12 bedrooms and 9 baths — it’s the spectacular land that pushes the price tag up to nearly $200 million. The home sits on 4,000 feet of coveted waterfront property on Long Island Sound, which doesn’t includes the additional access to two private islands in the Sound. The two parcels, one at 30 acres and one at 20, contain a grass tennis court, formal gardens, carriage house, apple orchard, two greenhouses and a 75-foot-long heated pool. Considering that a 75-acre Greenwich property nowhere near the water is listed at $32.5 million, the $190 million ask is a little more understandable.”
” Thinking about financing a place like this? According to Zillow’s mortgage calculator and assuming a 20 percent down payment (which would be $38 million) on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, a monthly payment would be $687,734.”
” An expert confirmed today that an object that sailed through the roof of a Connecticut home was a meteorite. The crash occurred on Friday night.On Friday night Larry Beck, of Wolcott, Conn., heard a crash in his attic. The next morning as he was checking things out, he found a significant amount of damage, according to NBC Connecticut.“There is no doubt that this is a legitimate meteorite,” said Stefan Nicolescu, the collections manager for the mineralogy division at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, reports the Hartford Courant. “It doesn’t look like any terrestrial rock.” “—
” In a rousing speech which is sure to inspire pro-gun rights advocates across the nation — and enrage those who choose to limit the Second Amendment — Mike Vanderboegh took to the Connecticut State Capital yesterday. Speaking at the Connecticut Citizens Defense League’s Second Amendment rally, Vanderboegh — one of the men who broke the Fast & Furious debacle, declared “civil war is starring us in the face.”
” Four months after the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a USA TODAY Poll finds support for a new gun-control law ebbing as prospects for passage on Capitol Hill seem to fade.
Americans are more narrowly divided on the issue than in recent months, and backing for a bill has slipped below 50%, the poll finds. By 49%-45%, those surveyed favor Congress passing a new gun-control law. In an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll in early April, 55% had backed a stricter gun law, which was down from 61% in February.”
Tugging at the heartstrings and attempting to “never let a crisis go to waste” failed this time around .
“So much of the support for gun control is emotional, following the Newtown tragedy,” says Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of the non-partisanRothenberg Political Report. The December shooting at the Connecticut school left 20 children and six adults dead. “The longer you get away from there, people start thinking of other issues. They start thinking about terrorism or jobs or immigration, and not surprisingly, then some of the momentum behind gun control starts to fade.”
The Boston Marathon bombings last Monday also may have had an effect, he speculates. “It wouldn’t be shocking if people sitting in their homes in Massachusetts cities and towns thought to themselves, ‘Boy, I wish I had something to protect myself with if a terrorist came through the door now.’”
Odd isn’t it , that nowhere in this article do we find mention of the astronomical ” 90% support” for new gun laws claim so recently trumpeted from on high by our lord and savior Barack and his minions in the MSM ? More pie in the sky BS , more lies …
It’s An Epidemic … Bomb Threats In Alabama , Connecticut , Florida , Iowa And Pennsylvania
” Cullman police say a man called 911 about 9 p.m. Sunday and claimed bombs were in three hospitals. Authorities say he claimed the bombs would all go off at once.
That threat led to evacuations at Cullman Regional Medical Center and Marshall Medical Center hospitals in Boaz and Guntersville.”
” At approximately 10:30am Monday morning, the State Superior Court in Stamford, Connecticut was evacuated because of a bomb threat, the Stamford Times reports.“
” About 200 people evacuated the Raymond James building on Seabreeze Boulevard for more than an hour on Monday morning after two men called a bank and demanded money, threatening to detonate a bomb, police say.”
” A Rock Island neighborhood is back to normal after being evacuated when police responded Sunday night to a call of a bomb threat.
The incident occurred about 7:30 p.m. when police received a call of a bomb threat / suicidal subject.
Police were told that a resident in the the 1800 block of 44th Street had explosive devices in his home and that he was going to detonate those devices. “
” One man has been arrested after a bomb threat forced the South Hills Village to be evacuated Sunday evening.
According to police, a bomb threat was made against the mall around 6 p.m.
The man who allegedly made the threats was in a store at the South Hills Village. He has been identified as 71-year-old Frank Zahler.”
” Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) has a great new idea for gun control grandstanding: call on Rupert Murdoch to cancel a NASCAR race sponsored by the NRA this weekend. Murphy claims the National Rifle Association sponsorship would be “inappropriate in the immediate wake of the Newtown massacre.”
The “immediate wake” of Newtown? The shooting occurred in December. When does the “immediate wake” end? 2014? 2018? Never?
The race is to be held at the Texas Motor Speedway, which as the reader might surmise, is not located in Connecticut. Murphy doesn’t seem interested in rational discourse, as CNN relates his letter to Murdoch:
“The race not only brings national attention to an organization that has been the face of one side of this heated debate, it also features the live shooting of guns at the end of the race,” Murphy wrote to Rupert Murdoch, the chairman and chief executive of News Corporation, which owns the Fox network where the race will be broadcast.
“I would like to make a similar challenge to you,” Murphy told the media mogul in his letter Thursday. “You should play a constructive role in our national dialogue by refraining from broadcasting the NRA 500. By airing this race you will be strengthening the brand of a radical organization that is currently standing in the way of meaningful progress on this issue.”
So much for all the balloon juice about how much Democrats “respect your Second Amendment rights” and want to be best pals with “responsible gun owners” and “responsible hunters.” That’s what the NRA is. For months, Democrats have called for a “national conversation on guns,” but it turns out people who join that conversation on the “wrong” side can’t even sponsor a NASCAR race.
Murphy is making a totalitarian effort to read the NRA completely out of society. Conveniently enough, once you’ve been designated an unspeakable monster, it is no longer necessary to salute your “rights” or take your dissent seriously.
If you don’t like the word “totalitarian,” well, stop running around and being totalitarian, gun control nuts. Asserting that no one can dissent from your agenda in good faith, and must obey your commands without complaint, is a totalitarian impulse. So is using human props to make “arguments” that no one is allowed to refute, without being accused of monstrous insensitivity.”
