    I agree, they are nuts ... do you think there will be committee meetings regarding every single one (bill)?

    The world is going to run out of ink !

    I didn't like any of the choices but went with scapegoat # 2

    Do gun controls proposed in the Connecticut General Assembly go too far?

    • Yes. A final report hasn't been issued on the Newtown shootings, so we don't know yet what could have stopped them. But lawmakers are using the opportunity to propose all sorts of restrictions on legal gun owners. (833 responses)
      81%

    • No. The murders of 20 children and six women who died trying to protect them require this state to do something about the proliferation of guns, particularly military-style assault weapons (45 responses)
      4%

    • They're beside the point. What are needed are better ways to detect mental illness and treat it. (153 responses)
      15%

    Yes is the wrong answer. I couldn't care less about the final report.

    That's why I chose scapegoat #2 for

    that's odd, it seems UCONN and the Hartford Courant are not counting the actual total of poll voters, but only the ones who voted in favor of stricter gun control. there was another Courant poll besides the one from this thread, but I can't seem to find the link anywhere. but iirc, 511 voters chose stricter gun control vs something like 5,000 voters opposed stricter gun control. this is the false bovine fecal matter that the Courant is now publicizing:

    http://www.courant.com/news/opinion/...,5658021.story
    "Because the Dec. 14 Newtown massacre took place in one of our communities, Connecticut should be a national leader in sensible, constitutional gun-control measures. A new poll indicates most residents want that to happen.

    According to a University of Connecticut/Hartford Courant poll, Connecticut residents by wide margins favor such measures as background checks on gun show sales, a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, a federal database to track all gun sales, and preventing people with mental illness from purchasing guns.

    Overall, 64 percent of residents said they favored stricter law governing gun sales, and 57 percent said the massacre of 26 children and women at Sandy Hook Elementary School made them more likely to support gun control. The poll of 511 randomly selected adults was taken between Jan. 24 and 28 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points."

    Different poll and method.

    Probably loaded questions.

    This is the online poll as of now.

    • No. The murders of 20 children and six women who died trying to protect them require this state to do something about the proliferation of guns, particularly military-style assault weapons (134 responses)
      5%
