    I felt a stir of pride when Henson was speaking. Whether English is his first language or not, I'd have that man as my neighbor any time.

    Sometimes it takes an immigrant to appreciate what natives take for granted.

    All three were fantastic, but my favorite was Henson too.
    As a fellow legal immigrant, I share his bewilderment about how all this can even happen here in the States.
    The thing that sets America apart from the rest of the Western world is the Constitution.
    Watching so-called 'Americans' trying to destroy this great nation from the inside out by attacking the Constitution is heartbreaking.

    Yep, all three were good but Henson was special. Too many of us that were born here take things for granted and/or drink to much progressive kool aid. Great to see a legal immigrant who gets the point of the 2A and supports it, rather than certain others that flee england only to try and turn us into the place they left.

    Popular thread i guess, three others in the time it took to write this on iphone :)

    Around 1,300. Over 16 hours of testimony, went til 3 a.m. Probably 80%+ pro-gun. Even one of the CT Firearms Permit Examiners testified against the proposed bills.

    Oh, and here's what one of the biggest proponents of gun control, Senator Beth Bye, does while at the hearing.

    That poor, poor man :(

    It is certainly significant that this guy, who is clearly an intelligent and articulate man, is speaking out, not particularly to defend gun ownership, but to tell these idiots that they are barking up the wrong tree.

    No new laws, simply enforce the ones we already have.

    I thought that the part where he said that he would not condone a new law even if they called it 'James' Law' was particularly effective.

    She doesn't need to hear the other side of the argument because she already knows she's right.

    Many people would lose their job if they were sitting on facebook during a meeting, pity she won't.

    Maybe we should all send her emails asking her why she was messing around on facebook during an important meeting, while getting paid for it on taxpayer's money...
