Rick Jones: Guns have nothing to do with the Connecticut shootings

by: Eric B.

Sun Jan 27, 2013 at 14:02:42 PM EST

Rick Jones was on Off the Record this week, talking about guns. A couple of startling revelations: First, that he compared federal gun laws to segretation. Second, that he said that guns have nothing to do with gun violence. Third, that he wants armed security guards at the entrance of every school. Fourth, if teachers have the same training as police officers, he's okay with armed school teachers.

Weird, man. Weird.

Also, that he wants to take away abortion coverage for legislative employees because he heard one story about an employee who was pressured and then fired by a state representative over an unplanned pregnancy. Punish them all for the vague exception to the rule!

Lisa Brown
When further pushed on this, it was rumored that the legislative employee worked in Lisa Brown's office.  It was also brought up by one of the panel, and thoughtfully so, that she never pressued the woman into getting an abortion, nor did the employee actually get one.  More to the point, whatever happened is hearsay and no case was ever brought, so this seems like slander/defamation at the very best, and I hope Lisa Brown sues the bejeebuses out of his ass.  

And, yes, you can believe that Rick has googled his name and is reading this because he's just that vain.  Hi, Rick!  To think, this guy was the sheriff in Eaton County.  I'm so damned glad that neither Jones nor Reines can abuse that office, anymore.
