And the aggregate IQ on campus plummeted

Camillo, Himes, appear at GHS to support gun control

Both were disappointed that the legislation stopped short of where they’d have wanted it, but apparently they’re satisfied that the state’s taken a great first step.

Too bad no one asked these yokels how barring a hunter from purchasing a box of skeet shells or .22s was going to prevent another Newtown, but at least the students saw how politicians milk tragedy for votes. Cynicism towards and suspicion of government cannot be started too soon.

Next election, don’t forget not to vote.

UPDATE: A reader sent along this pearl of wisdom from Himes’ lecture yesterday:

“If you make the decision to keep a weapon in your home, you have made a much more dangerous home, in which it is much more likely that you or your spouse or one of your children or neighbors will die with the gun you have chosen to keep,” he said. “If you want to do that, I believe that’s your right. But it’s not a debatable proposition that if you have a gun in the home, you are safer.”

Can we expect the Congressman to say the same thing about private swimming pools, which cause more  infant and child drowning deaths than guns by a factor of 100? I think not.

    Dude –
    So now you have a beggar’s cup link on your website? How gauche. Why don’t you just sell pencils out of a tin cup on the Avenue? You cash starved little ninny.

    Are dirt sales that bad? If you have to rely on your writing for a living, I am afraid you will look like one of those swollen bellied Biafran kids with the flies on them, in no time.

    You ask “Like my post”? NO!!! It sucked!! “Please support me by clicking on the Mersi button”. PATHETIC!! You grungy little internet urchin. THE READER SHOULD GET HARDSHIP PAY!!

    Be honest. Say “Can you help out a no talent hack? Please give me some spare change by clicking on the NO TALENT HACK button”.
    And don’t use the $18 bucks on a new gun, enroll instead to iwishicouldwrite.com.

    Also, you may have your bony assed lily white WASP status revoked. The blue hairs may not look kindly having a hobo in our midst.
    You begging little bee.

    Your Pal,
    Walt

But it’s not a debatable proposition that if you have a gun in the home, you are safer.”

    If only we could ask the late and brutally murdered Jennifer, Haley, and Michaela Petit if they think having a gun in the home is a debatable proposition.

    Questions:

    1.was this discussion mandatory for GHS students? I get the sense no since it said there were a few hundred in attendance.

    2. Does GHS have an educational access TV channel or post video on their site? I’d like to see this and hear what other questions the kids asked. The reporter here did a crappy job of telling the whole story, but its the GT….

    Dude –
    I just took a quick look at the GAR published “Requirements to Live in Greenwich”. I think they could get you with a technicality on this. Rule 34. No, Not Internet Rule 34, you pervert. Rule 34 on “Conduct Unbecoming a Greenwicher”. Greenwicher? That’s what we are called? Sounds the same as retarded to me.

    Anyhows, it says, and I quote VERBATIM “No seller of dirt shall enter into an agreement with any potential pigeo…with any potential client, who is beneath our acceptable social status. This includes the Jews, Micks, Dago’s, blah blah blah, and includes anyone whose occupation is not up to our impeccable social standards. Occupations, such as internet begging, also results in pigeo….also results in clients being deemed unacceptable. We will hold our “professional” real estate agents to the same ethical standards.”

    Dude, I think they threw in “ethical” to try and be funny, but this is serious!! I know you and the GAR Evil Princess have been playing nice, but time may not have healed all wounds. She could use this to chop off your head!! Well more likely your feet, as you actually use them, but you know what I mean.

    So rethink this begging strategy. I know you can’t resist an easy buck, you slacker, but people are out to get you.

    Right? You paranoid little street mongrel?

    Your Pal,
    Walt

    Could this be Freddy Camillo’s argyle soul mate?

    Meanwhile, out west, the part-time humane officer (retired police sgt.) went to his truck and got a gun . . . BOOM! Doesn’t say if it was the 12 guage or what.

      Yeah, what a guy. Tough guy cop shoots kittens in front of the Kids. I think they should sue that asshole for everything he’s got for traumatizing the kids for many years to come, maybe the rest of their lives. Judgement: twenty million, at least (asshole wages — the price of being an asshole).
