Skip to comments.Entire 1st Shift of COLT shows up in Hartford CT Capitol (450+ employees)
Posted on 03/14/2013 7:53:50 AM PDT by DTogo
Public hearings in Hartford, mostly on unconstitutional gun control, brought the entire 1st shift of COLT workers holding "Save Our Jobs" signs into the legislative building. They were bussed in by the company, met with applause by pro-2A residents signing up to testify, and occupied three floors.

Wish you were here in the Capitol!!
Stand tall Americans....
They will call it ‘Astro-turf”........
A significant number of them were not your “typical white person,” but regular folks of color wanting to save their jobs.
I find it amazing and very ironic that the very states that were the original 13 colonies that began the quest for freedom and liberty are now the very states that are its biggest threat.....................
Got this in an email today:
“A pen in the hand of this president is far more dangerous than a gun in the hands of 200 million law-abiding citizens.”
Good observation. It is indeed ironic. I wonder when Massachusetts will close down things like the Bunker Hill Monument, etc.
....While fewer gun control advocates show up and are called a large rally.
I’m in Connecticut, and my realistic assessment of the gun-control issue (and proposed legislation) is this:
It’s all going to pass.
Connecticut is the “deepest blue” of states, and the ‘rat legislature reflects this.
They may pretend to “listen to” the pleadings of the Second Amendment people, but when all is said and done, and when it’s time to vote — they’re going to vote for the most restrictive gun control that’s available to vote for.
I hope I’m proven wrong. But it looks like gun control here is going to resemble New York state’s scenario — essentially pushed through as quickly as possible, perhaps in the dark of night, and opponents’ opinions be damned.
New England has become the new England. Sad.
And why wouldn't they? The die has been cast by New York state! Cuomo has single-handedly set the precedent by which other states will claim what they are doing is legal.
The true consequences will play out in the coming years as violent crime spirals out of control and full registration, confiscation, and all out bans are enacted as a "panacea to the gun violence."
In reality, the gun violence is rising BECAUSE of the gun bans, not in spite of them. Politicians, esp. liberals, are mentally deranged megalomaniacs who will not be content until every one of us are imprisoned drones working to keep their party going.
Watch the video & smell the BS (police killed by assault weapons all the time).
In what was once a state that had a very rich and well devloped gun and related industry (Colt, Remington, Olin).
To quote the late great Paul Harvey -"My, my......"
Last time I was on vacation there and stopped to visit Bunker Hill, a scary man with a large rifle was there with a funny hat on.
To quote that famous American, Davey Crockett, “Ya’ll can go to hell, I’m going to Texas.”
The irony is inescapable.
If they keep it up, all their gun manufacturers are going to go bye-bye.
State politicians don’t give a rats’ butt about what “We The People” think...
HUNDREDS of Colorado 2A supporters showed up at the Colorado state house during the hearings in Denver.
They were not allowed to testify, even when on the “list” and since both CO houses are DEMORAT controlled, the bills have been rammed down our throats and Hickenpooper said he will sign them all into law.
We’re so screwed...
