The nicest things I can say about the insecure moron that heckled a parent of a shooting victim at a meeting. Screaming "Second Amendment" while someone is in the process of relating their grief is simply beyond the pale.

HARTFORD -- A false fire alarm, 45-minute waits to get into the Capitol complex, even the heckling of a bereaved parent of a Newtown shooting victim marked Monday's day-long legislative hearing on gun control.

"The Second Amendment!" was shouted by several gun enthusiasts in the meeting room as Neil Heslin, holding a photo of his 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, asked why Bushmaster assault-style weapons are allowed to be sold in the state.

"There are a lot of things that should be changed to prevent what happened," said Heslin, who grew up using guns and seemed undisturbed by the interruption of his testimony.

WTF is wrong with you people?

(I'm on the Autism spectrum so I'm stuck with all the empathy the Republicans never got apparently.)
