The newly-formed Greenwich Knotted Knickers group, an anti-gun association, held a church meeting last night and said all the usual things. No news there, but a striking solution to mass murders by gunmen was proposed by an attendee or his Pathways House companion, and I wish the reporter had demanded that he defend his idea.
Greenwich resident Jonathan DuBois said he attended to see what was happening, and felt discouraged by the slow-moving process.
GT doesn’t bother mentioning that Mr. DuBoise is Chairman of the Greenwich Housing Authority, a huge ($18,000 contribution in 2012) supporter of Obama or an employee of the Rockefeller’s Indian Spring Land Development Corporation (which is ironic, because while Indian Spring is preparing to clear-cut its woods from Zaccheus Mead to Riversville Road, DuBoise is hanging out at Greenwich Tree Conservancy cocktail parties, as seen above).
But the question I’d have asked this tree-hugging, chainsaw Democrat is how exactly how he thinks imposing a $2 per cartridge tax would reduce the possibility of another Sandy Hook massacre? Such a tax would affect only target shooters, because only target shooters buy ammunition in large enough quantities to feel the pinch – will ending target practice reduce gun violence? If so, how? It’s a simple question, but DuBoise’s answer would have been fun to hear.
