I have yet to hear of a single law proposed that would have prevented the Newtown tragedy.
NORWICH, CT (WFSB) – Another senseless shooting is giving gun control supporters another example to point to as they make their case in their quest for gun law changes on a national level. But with the recent shooting in Norwich, mental health is also being called into question. [...]
U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said he wants legislation that would require instant background checks for the sale of gun ammunition. He is expected to take up the proposal once Congress reconvenes.
“They can be done in 30 seconds,” he said. “The vast majority are, and they would prevent people who should not have ammunition or firearms from actually buying it.”
This would be in addition to the national push to ban assault weapons. But, Blumenthal admits there’s one slice of the demographic that continues to slip through the cracks.
