    It's too bad it sometimes takes a horrific case like this to get people to understand...
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Once convicted, both perps should be burned at the stake!

    Too bad that CNN got only the first part of it right -- but failed to make the connection to the need for Self Defense.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    The BG's defense attorney had the nerve to ask for leniency for the defendant because he was abused as a child. I got news for the defense attorney, the killer needs to be severely abused as an adult. If they need someone to pull the switch or give the injection, I'm available. All the anti-gun politico's need to be present at the execution. Maybe a few could sit on his lap.

    I don't hold with the argument that perps should be given leniency because something happened to them in childhood. Everyone should know right from wrong (I believe we all know it intrinsically), and everyone is accountable for their own actions. The more this is drilled into people, the less able they will be to take shelter behind the argument that they deserve special privilege because of something that happened in childhood. I also was sickened when one of the attorneys in this case argued for life in prison instead of the death penalty for Hayes. I'm against life in prison for anyone who has committed murder; who knows but what some bleeding-heart judge will let that lifer go at some future time, on the basis of some yet-to-be-found excuse? I say get murderers off the planet as quickly as possible. They're a waste of resources.
    The first rule of self-defense is to avoid the situation. The second rule is Train and Prepare.

    When you make a decision to do these kinds of crimes, your childhood doesn't mean anything to me. Lots of mistreated kids make a life for themselves without doing bad things.
    There is no truly fitting punishment for either of these dirtbags, but a discontinued use of our O2 is top priority in my book.

    You guys need to stop coddling these criminals and come up with a punishment that isn't so lenient. Somewhere in the process I can envision being drawn and quartered.

    Too bad Connecticut does not have a "Castle Doctrine" law, if the family had tried to defend themselves they would still be able to be sued!

    Sad part is.....you and I know it's not 'breaking news'. Headlines are one thing.....for those whom choose to remain ignorant of the facts it's another. Time and time again. Warnings come in two ways, continued existence in the face of despair only happens one way. If you're not ready now, there's not much the media or anyone else can tell you. A white flag is for the ignorant, and there's no such thing as a truce when your life is on the line.

    I personally like this reply.
    In some ways, I'd like to see public hangings again. Much more humane than a firing squad I think. Would be (or career) criminals need to be sent a stronger message than what they are getting right now. The psychologists, and the lawyers need to go fishing for a while while we take care of business like it should be and in a timely manner.
