Sandy Hook Dad Channels Charlton Heston

Apparently the testimony of Sandy Hook father Bill Stevens wasn’t as easy to deceptively edit as Neil Heslin’s; otherwise you would see this plastered across the authoritarian media:

A video of a father, Bill Stevens, whose daughter attended Sandy Hook Elementary school, scene of the mass shooting in December, is making its rounds today of his testimony against gun control at a Working Group Public Hearing at the Connecticut State Capitol on gun violence prevention.

The little sister of a friend of his daughter Victoria was murdered, not by an “assault weapon” or any other inanimate object but by the evil freak Adam Lanza.

Stevens read part from the state’s constitution on the right to bear arms in self-defense and told the panel, “These rights are inalienable and endowed by our creator, not you politicians.”

From his testimony:

“But criminals and tyrants — tyrants, especially — be aware that lockdown is not an option at the Stevens residence. And 911 will be dialed after the security of my home has been established.

“Why is that same security my daughter enjoys at home with her dad not available at school in Newtown? That is what you should be considering, not making her dad a criminal.

“Charlton Heston made the phrase ‘From my cold dead hands’ famous and I will tell you here today, you will take my ability to protect my Victoria from my cold dead hands.”

Victoria is very lucky to have a true American for a father.

    too goddam right.

    Where i come from, a real man has two main responsibilities in life when he starts a family. a) to support his family, and b) to protect them from harm. Mr. Stevens IS a real man!

    Finally, a man. Not a simpering, feminized, “oh-please-don’t-hurt-me”, hiding-under-the-desk, run-to-the-panic-room wimp, but a real man.

    No…we won’t be hearing from Mr. Stevens on the evening news. Real men are not allowed, just Alan Alda clones. Anything else would upset the Soccer Moms, homosexuals, feminists, Code Pink-ers and the entire crop of frightened gun-haters that are going along with this current trend. (I don’t include the Preezy in that group. He doesn’t hate guns…he just doesn’t want YOU to have them.)

    Lock and load, baby.

    This is awesome and he is absolutely correct on all counts…I gave him a standing ovation in my home…loved his jab at the protection the council has, referring to being frisked on his way in…really tired of the hypocrisy of those pushing the gun grab who are afforded this protection because of their fame or position in life who would deny you or I that same protection for our familes. Advice to those thinking gun ban… NOT POKE THE BEAR….you will certainly get more than you can handle.

    No Skyfall, we won’t be seeing him much. What we are seeing all over the place is the husband of Rep. Giffords who was shot out in AZ. The Left used to have Jim Brady to wheel out every time they attacked the 2nd Amendment. He’s gone and now they have her and her husband, a Capt. Kelly.

    He was on the Sunday Fox news show with Fox’s in-house progressive, Chris Wallace. It was funny (but not surprising) to see Wallace let him go on, and on, and on. But when Wayne LaPiere of the NRA came on, Wallace, with a sneer on his face, interrupted him constantly.

    While spewing all of the Left’s anti-gun talking points, Capt. Kelly made sure to keep saying, along with mentioning his years of military service several times, how he and his wife are both gun owners and shooters, and how he feels that “universal” background checks are what “must” be done.

    The Left never seems to run out of political props.

    Bill Stevens has the kind of mettle the majority of this nation used to value in choosing the leader of the free world. Mr. Stevens, my hat is off to you, sir, you have summed up the collective outrage of the silent majority of the decent Americans to the collectivist enemies running roughshod over our God-given and inalienable rights.

    Although there are plenty of gun grabbers looking to not let this opportunity go to waste and exploiting greiving parents, Mr. Stevens is fortunately not alone among the parents who can see the fools they are being played by the corrupt gun-grabbing collectivist politicians in Washington and statehouses like NY, to their abling and fawning media cohorts.

    Another father, whose 6yr old son was a victim at Sandy Hook, Mark Mattioli, called for more decency—from our homes to Hollywood and better parenting. Not more complex laws, which, as he points out, the perpetrators of mass shootings are already breaking. ”The problem is not gun laws. The problem is a lack of civility” he says. “We need civility,” he said. “We need common decency to prevail.”

    Mattioli recalled his own experience as a young adult watching “R” rated movies and compared that with what comes on broadcast television today with regards to violence. He believes this is one of the symptoms.

    Mattioli recalled a time when he was six years old and his parents, who grew up out of the Depression, did not believe in a lot of entertainment and extras. He recounted the story of how he asked his mother for some bubble gum one time and she told him “No.” He said, “So I stole it.” he then tells how his mother found out about it as they arrived home. She quickly returned to the store and made him hand the gum back to the cashier, apologize, and say that he would never do it again.

    “That is the kind of parenting we need,” he said. “Parenting is where we need to focus our attention.”

    “We do not need complex laws,” Mattioli continued. “I am a big proponent of individual accountability and enforcement, so if there are going to be laws, we should enforce them.”

    He then continued by dealing with gun laws in Chicago. “Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the country and I would say to people who wanted to have a civil discussion on the topic that I don’t think the gun laws are protecting the people, let alone the 500 alone, who perished last year in that city.”

    “What have those laws done to make Chicago a safer city?” he asked. “Nothing, I propose.”

    He then asked, “Can’t we do better?” His response was an unwavering “Yes.”

    Mattioli then makes the point that “Criminals, by definition, break the law. What we experienced at Sandy Hook, did (he) break the law? Of course, (he) broke the law.” With reference to the 500 killed in Chicago,he said those that killed them broke the law.

    He then said, “Is one more law….I don’t care if you named it ‘James’ law’….I don’t want it.”

    Like Stevens, don’t look for anything about Mattioli on the state-run media outlets like the Obama worshipping alphabet networks. These two parents don’t fit their mold, and would cause too much controversy with their low information viewers.

    Chris Wallace lost a lot of credibility in these interviews. He did not challenge or interrupy Capt. Mark Kelly even one time. He pointed out no arguments from opposing viewpoints except to erroneously claim that the NRA opposes backround checks.

    The interview with Wayne Lapierre on the other hand, was nothing but interruptions (23 times in 14 minutes!) and contentiousness. I have never seen Wallace be so rude and argumentative. I wish he could have mustered a little of that when he interviewed Obama.

    Cherlton Heston Yes Jamie Foxx No

  10. Jodie says:

    I was so disgusted with Chris Wallace yesterday! I’m glad to see that others watched the show and saw the ridiculous hypocrisy. He wasn’t making any sense and
    kept contradicting himself with his hideous questions.

  11. Skyfall says:

    Right on Dr. 9 and Jodie. Wallace’s true colors are starting to show. I thought he was pretty good, but he’s just a chip of the old block.

    Gifford’s husband is contemptible. “I was in the service.” “We’re gun owners.” SO WHAT? It’s obvious what your agenda is, pal…and if it wasn’t for a gun owner, your wifey would most likely be a statistic.

    I want to protect myself…from bad guys and from tyranny and by hell and by God I am going to do it. They can probably stop me (and about 100 million other American gun owners), but not without an argument.

    Try it and see what a free man will do to stand up for his GOD GIVEN rights.

  12. Jack Reid says:

    This is a true hero, just a guy, humble before God, asking for nothing but the opportunity to defend his family and property and recognizing politicians corrupt tendencies to grasp for power. This I believe was always the essence of America, and when this bloodline dies within the citizenry, then this continent is doomed to go the way of Rome.
