Insightful piece from Mark Pazniokas of the CT Mirror about gun lobbyist Robert Crook. Don’t ya just love lobbyists with the last name Crook? From Paz:
Crook, a deep-voiced smoker, admits to making one gaffe post-Newtown–a boast about the ability of gun owners last year to mobilize in opposition to a ban on high-capacity magazines, like the one that police say Adam Lanza would use a year later in Newtown.
“We killed it once,” Crook told The Hartford Courant. “And I would suspect once things quiet down a little bit, we’ll do it again.”
The line prompted an anonymous critic to create a Facebook page: “How many days before Robert Crook eats his words?”
