The hacks of the Norwalk police Department had Zero to do with the rescues on 911 . Actually most of the children of the NPD were not even in high school at the time. It is so typical of these hack to attempt to take undeserved credit View Comment
The negative posts about the NPD being a complete and total failure are correct... The only ones in Norwalk that are happy with the NPD is the NPD and of course the criminals as they don't get caught. View Comment
"You are implying that people will suddenly commit crime if crime is made legal".
So in other words as the other poster stated, you are suggesting that we get rid of all laws..This is a country of laws. It seems you may like better in a 3rd world country that has no laws. View Comment
You post is not factual..Here are the facts of the guns used at sandy Hook
Adam Lanza killed his mother with a Savage Mark II rifle
semi-automatic carbine was used at the elementary school
These are NOT hand guns as you stated.
These facts are taken right from Official Sandy Hook report .

No you are 100 percent wrong it would help the poor such as yourself.
Here are some key takeaways from the CBO report:
1.More than 700,000 American workers would be lifted out of poverty
More than 1 million retail workers and their family members live in or close to poverty. By raising the minimum wage of full-time workers to the equivalent of $12.25 per hour, 734,075 people would be lifted out of poverty and an additional 769,191 people living near the poverty line would see their incomes rise to more than 150 percent above the poverty line.
2.GDP would rise by as much as $15.2 billion
A wage increase to $12.25 an hour would impact more than 5 million workers and their families. As these families have access to more money, they will spend more, translating to as much as $15.2 billion in new economic activity, according to Demos.
3.132,000 new jobs could be created
If the increase in economic activity reached $15.2 billion, retailers would need 132,000 new employees.
4.The wage increase would actually only cost retailers about 1 percent of total sales
Large retailers would need to absorb the higher labor cost for the 3.5 million workers earning less than $12.25 per hour. But according to Demos, most of this increase in costs would be returned to the firm in the form of productivity gains and increased revenues, amounting to only 1 percent of their total yearly sales.
5.It would generate as much as $5 billion in additional retail revenue
In fact, assuming that low-income families spend rather than save the money from the wage increase, retailers could expect at least 20 cents in new revenue for every additional payroll dollar. That would have added up to as much as $5 billion in 2012.
6.The average shopper would pay just 15 cents more per shopping trip at most
Even if the nation's largest retailers decided to pass off the cost of a $12.25 minimum wage increase entirely to customers, Demos found that an average household would spend just 7 to 15 cents more per shopping trip.
