Connecticut residents are outraged that a gun show will take place this weekend just 40 miles from Newtown, where 26 people were killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School just weeks ago. The East Coast Firearms Show is being advertised as the “best of the best of vendors, offering 250 tables of antique and historical arms.”
Local lawmakers say they wish the event had been cancelled, as had been similar shows across the state. “It seems insensitive to have the event continue,” Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia told local reporters.
Since the shooting, several Connecticut newspapers have also apologized for publishing advertisements for a gun show next to articles about the tragedy.
Jesus, what is wrong with these people?
Are they so determined to add to their arsenal of penis extenders that they simply cannot postpone this damn thing for a year or two. Or how about altogether?
Apparently a number of others DID cancel their shows, but not these douchebags.
I sincerely hope that part of the legislation that Congress brings forth after Joe Biden does his thing, is legislation that places SERIOUS restrictions on what kind of weapons can be sold at these shows, and insists that EVERY potential customer undergoes a comprehensive background check before being able to purchase that special "Welcome to the Man Club" peashooter.
