The fact that humans can be SO cruel to each other makes us sad all day.
Neil Heslin, the father of 6-year-old Jesse Lewis who was killed during the Sandy Hook school shootings, attended a Gun Violence Prevention Working Group at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on Monday, where pro-gun enthusiasts were also present…
And while Neil was asking the state senate WHY assault-type weapons are legal, pro-gunners yelled out in reply:
"The Second Amendment!"
Oh, and by the way, Neil was holding a picture of his son while getting yelled at.
However, Mr. Heslin was unruffled by such horrific disrespect, and continued on to say:
"There are a lot of things that should be changed to prevent what happened. That wasn't just a killing, it was a massacre. I just hope some good can come out of this."
Way to handle such rudeness!
And it just BAFFLES us when people cite a dated amendment that really has no place in modern, civilized society in defense of guns!
We only hope that at least a fraction of Neil's wise words somehow reached the hecklers, and that good really can come out of such a devastating event.
