The Left was always been an unhinged bunch but in the age of POTUS Donald Trump, those Americans in that group who were teetering on the edge of sanity have fallen over the cliff big time, as we have seen time and again.
The latest example involves a Connecticut woman who was caught in a photo texting that she’d “blow away” a state senator if she had a gun, as well as several members of the National Rifle Association.
And no doubt she never caught the irony of hating Second Amendment supporters so much that she wanted to kill them — with a gun.
As The Daily Wire reported, the woman — an anti-gun activist attending the annual Connecticut Judiciary Committee public hearing on gun bills — was photographed writing that she would “blow away [Republican state senator Rob] Sampson and a large group of NRA” if only she had a constitutionally protected firearm.
The Connecticut Post reported the story; WTNH chief political correspondent Mark Davis tweeted the photo:

The photo and incident were reported to Capitol Police, and the woman was asked to leave the chamber. But she wasn’t charged; apparently, tweeting an unhinged threat in Connecticut isn’t the same as verbalizing one. (Related: It is the right and duty of all Americans to REFUSE to comply with unconstitutional gun laws.)
The paper reported that Sampson is a very big supporter of the Second Amendment — which in and of itself is ironic; anyone elected to office in American who swears an oath to the Constitution should be a ‘big supporter’ of all the amendments and the rights contained therein, not just a few of them.
As for the hearing the unhinged Leftist woman was kicked out of, National Review summarized it:
The legislation was introduced in response to the death of 15-year-old Ethan Song, who was killed after accidentally shooting himself in the head with a gun that belonged to his friend’s father. The gun had been secured with a lock, but left in a container with the key and accompanying ammunition. As a result, state prosecutors said they could not charge its owner, because state law requires only that loaded guns are properly secured. Under the new legislation, which has been dubbed “Ethan’s Law” by his parents, owners would be required to lock loaded and unloaded guns alike.
So in other words, passing another law that would only further infringe — yes, that’s the right word to use, given the language of the Second Amendment — on a lawful gun owner would do nothing but cause them greater inconvenience and put themselves and their families at greater risk because, of course, a locked gun does no one any good when confronted in their home by an armed burglar.
Another bill being considered, according to the Hartford Courant, says any gun owner visibly carrying a handgun would be required to produce a state-issued permit if police requested it. This bill came as the result of a man in Bridgeport, Conn., repeatedly refusing to show cops his permit, though eventually the situation was peacefully resolved. Said Sampson, “I don’t know what [the situation] was allowed to escalate. This person was minding their own business, like riding down the road or mowing your lawn… Why would law enforcement need to show up for that purpose?”
Sampson is spot-on. The rights contained in the Bill of Rights — including the Second Amendment — are just that: Rights. They are not ‘permissions’ to be requested and then granted by government, and they are not suggestions. They are rights recognized as natural for all humans by our Constitution.
We shouldn’t have to ‘hold hearings’ to get permission to use them or suffer violent Leftist fools who don’t appreciate them.
