The father of a 6-year-old slain in the Newtown elementary school tragedy spoke before a hearing by a Connecticut legislative committee examining the state’s gun control laws. He said:

Mattioli says he believes in “simple, few gun laws” and that there are “more than enough on the books.”

But he said they’re not being properly enforced.

Mattioli received a standing ovation.

Unfortunately, I doubt that will sway them in their rush to judgement.
