Erica Lafferty: Gun Control’s Cindy Sheehan

Erica Lafferty, daughter of murdered Sandy Hook Elementary Principal Dawn Hochsprung, wants the Second Amendment destroyed in her rage over the loss of her mother. Mental health care reform could put people like Adam Lanza in a mental institution before they murder. Laferty could apparently care less.

U.S. Army Specialist Casey Sheehan was killed in combat trying to rescue follow soldiers caught in a firefight. Sadly, most people only know of him because of Cindy Sheehan, his grieving mother, who disrespected the memory of her son’s sacrifice and went on a personal jihad against then-President George Bush that the media was all-too-willing to exploit for Democratic political gain.  During her crusade, Cindy Sheehan’s all-consuming anger grew so strong that abandoned her husband and three remaining children. Her blind hatred and derangement finally manifested in  conspiracy theory-laced anti-Semetic rants, and the media was forced to dispose of her as their favorite tragi-toxic symbol of political revenge.

Erica Lafferty, the daughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary Principal Dawn Hochsprung, seems intent on following Sheehan’s path through rage into absurdity, stalking politicians around the country to vent her misdirected bile.

I pity Ms. Lafferty, as I do all other family members affected by violence of any type, but I will not sit idly by and hold my tongue while they are used as pawns by those who desire to use tragedy to expand their own power at the expense of liberty.

President Obama flew them from Connecticut to Washington, D.C. on Air Force One at taxpayer expense in an attempt to use bullying emotionalism to influence the Senate’s gun control votes. Democrats have largely succeeded at turning them from victims into bullies, insisting that their personal tragedies justify usurping the Constitution and Bill of Rights from all Americans.

Erica Lafferty in particular is so full of herself that she thinks she even has the right to weigh in on whether Sandy Hook Elementary is redesigned or torn down. She not only convinced she has the right to assault the Constitution, but to dictate how public property is used.

She does not have that right.

Lafferty’s mother was no more important than anyone else in the world, even if she was the world to her. People die every day for all sorts of reasons, but grief over those deaths do not give the surviving family members a right to infringe upon the rights of individuals, states, or nations.

I suggest Ms. Lafferty get counseling, and quickly. She’s seems as if she is well on her way towards being consumed by misplaced rage herself.

    If you look at Ms. Latterty’s eyes, you will be able to tell that she is not dealing with a full deck. It is shameful that she has chosen to promote her agenda and get her 15 minutes on the back of her dead mother.

    Look this is Connecticut. She was probably a gun grabber before the shooting. And now she’s exploiting her dead mother for political gain. My rights aren’t subject to this lady’s whims. Or to the mob’s capricious feelings.

    I actually enjoy seeing these people expose their own hypocrisy. They blame everybody but the liberals whose laws and policies create the places these things happen and then they expect pity when they clamber atop a pile of childrens corpses as they attempt to advance their civilian dis-armament agenda so America has even more potential helpless victims. Sounds hateful but, fuck her. It’s too bad she wasn’t among the victims.

    Someone should ask ms latterty if she washes her mother’s blood off her shoes every night after she finishes dancing in to the tune of her demo masters.

    Lafferty is going after the senators who voted against Manchin Toomey, but how would an expanded background check have prevented the Sandy Hook shooting? Lanza’s gun was bought through the background check.
