Connecticut Gov. Malloy appoints a bipartisan commission to come up with suggestions to prevent future “Sandy Hooks.” He gives them until March 15th. He says he won’t put pressure on them or allow others to do so. Suddenly, with VP Joe Moron at his side, he goes back on his word:

Malloy said on Thursday, however, that “we run a risk of letting this critical moment in history pass us by. None of us want that to happen, and none of us should let it happen.”

Referring to his plan as “common sense” proposals, Malloy said that he would change the definition of “assault weapon to any semiautomatic that has at least one military characteristic, and ban the sale of these weapons in our state.”

Some of those other “common sense” proposals include limiting magazines to 10-rounds. Requiring “safe” storage of guns. Banning gun ownership for five-years to anyone convicted of driving under the influence. Requiring present owners of “assault weapons” to register them with the state police. Et cetera. He’s also considering requiring that gun owners carry insurance for their firearms.
