Neil Heslin lost his six-year old boy — “my only family” in December’s Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Connecticut that took the lives of 19 other first graders and six adults. Today, Heslin delivered emotional testimony asking why assault weapons are necessary — and got heckled.

“A false fire alarm, 45-minute waits to get into the Capitol complex, even the heckling of a bereaved parent of a Newtown shooting victim marked Monday’s day-long legislative hearing on gun control,” the Connecticut Post reports:

“The Second Amendment!” was shouted by several gun enthusiasts in the meeting room as Neil Heslin, holding a photo of his 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, asked why Bushmaster assault-style weapons are allowed to be sold in the state.

“There are a lot of things that should be changed to prevent what happened,” said Heslin, who grew up using guns and seemed undisturbed by the interruption of his testimony.

Senate Majority Leader Martin M. Looney, co-chairman of the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group, threatened to empty the meeting room in the Legislative Office Building — jammed with hundreds of people — if the outbursts and chatter from the audience continued.

Note: The AP edited out the heckling.

THESE hecklers are the ones we need to start rounding up! They are the ones who think the shooting of 20 little bodies is not as important as their un-manly need for a Military weapon. Next we hear from any of these guys, it will be as they are led handcuffed to jail, after shooting up a movie theater or something.

Maybe you should move to another Country if guns offend you that much. Maybe you should move to a Country where Cars, Knives, and Pencils are banned. Sick of you Liberal Twats who murder your babies through Abortion pretending you actually care about the Sandy Hook Victims. You don't care about Human Life, so quit trying to put a front on. Go back to smoking your Crack and stealing our Money with your Obama Bucks crackheads.

No rifle was used at Sandy Hook. Even the MSM finally came out and acknowledged this fact.
