The editorial, "Gun owners must obey registration law," (Feb. 20), led me to ask, again, how The Day's editorial staff expects to be taken seriously?
Am I a conspiracy theorist because I question the standard boilerplate that passes for reporting today? A wise friend said the only conspiracy theories are the history we don't know. I don't believe, for one second, the official tale of the Sandy Hook murders. There are more gaps in the sanctioned Newtown narrative than a long picket fence.
Why are we lectured about the need to obey "any law" after The Day, by proxy, endorsed the propriety of black civil disobedience in a Jan. 20 editorial, "MLK: 'We will reach the goal of freedom'," featuring MLK's "Letter From a Birmingham Jail?" Included was Saint Augustine's remonstration that "an unjust law is no law at all." Why such hypocrisy?
We have "unconvicted felons" in Connecticut because of reflexive politicians; that's why! What happened to critical thinking and common sense? Ironically, the state legislators who passed these recent gun laws were themselves in violation of the 1986 McClure-Volkmer Act prohibiting the registration of guns and gun owners. History has consistently shown that registration is a precursor to confiscation.
Think it can't happen here? Don't bet the rent.
