The Connecticut state legislature is considering bills to outlaw the possession of “assault rifles” and large capacity magazines. Here’s a video of one man’s testimony to the legislature on that subject. Boomer Steed makes some nice points, but so does at least one State Legislator who makes clear that people like Mr. Steed are not only being heard, but they’re also making a difference.
The point is that resistance is not futile and, in fact, may even be effective.
My points are that 1) we have both the opportunity and an obligation to resist and 2) we can expect to make a positive difference if we will stand up in a persistent and public manner.
