It's Been A Year Since The Sandy Hook Shooting -- And America Has Done Nothing To Stop The Next One

[Image: image.jpg]

“Unwelcome fame.”

That’s how Neil Heslin puts the last year of his life.

On Dec. 14, 2012, Neil’s 6-year-old, son, Jesse McCord Lewis, was one of 20 children and six others who were killed when a shooter entered the typical elementary school in the typical small town — Newtown, Conn. — and changed it forever.

Since then, Neil Heslin has made it his mission, as much as he can, to make sure it never happens again. He is one of the most visible parents and relatives of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

In February, he brought with him a framed photo of him and Jesse to Washington, D.C., where he made a tearful plea to the Senate Judiciary Committee to pass a law banning assault weapons. He has made countless appearances on television and cultivated friendly relationships with too many reporters to count, too.

“It is a very hard thing to describe,” Heslin told Business Insider in an interview this week. “Everyone is looking at you, staring. You know what they’re thinking. People from around the world know Jesse and I now.

“I guess you can call it ‘unwanted fame.’”

Every interview, every appearance, goes toward the goal of preventing another massacre like the one that happened in Newtown one year ago. But a year later, stunningly little has been done on a national scope to do that. The U.S. Senate took a vote on the most basic of reforms — expanding background checks on gun buyers — in April, when it went down in flames.

The only gun-related legislation to get through Congress this year was a 10-year reauthorization of a ban on firearms that are undetectable by metal detectors or X-ray machines. Even that legislation faced resistance to expansions.

That’s it. No gun bills. No mental-health legislation. Nothing related to school safety.

Neil Heslin wishes Jesse were here.

“Jesse could sell Eskimos ice cubes,” he said.

‘Worst day in politics’
What always surprises Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) are the ages of the victims.

Almost once every week since the failure of the background -heck bill, Murphy has taken to the Senate floor to share a story of a victim of gun violence. He calls the recurring series “voices of victims.”

“When I read these stories, there always seems to be a common theme,” Murphy told Business Insider in an interview this week. “The ages don’t seem to vary that much — 17, 18, 16, 20 years old. It’s catastrophic.”

In November 2012, Murphy was elected to become Connecticut’s junior senator. About a month later, his priorities changed drastically.

For better or worse, Congress and the White House immediately became immersed in the gun debate soon after the Sandy Hook massacre. Two days after the shooting, on a Sunday show, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said that she would be introducing a bill to ban assault-style weapons. That night, in what was instantly one of the most memorable moments of his presidency, Barack Obama declared “we have to change.”

Other, familiar proposals soon emerged — one to ban high-capacity magazines, and one to expand background checks.

Some advocates wanted the response to come even sooner. Congress should have called a special session to address the issue, they say now. Others say that the response, fresh off the tragedy, was too much, too soon.

Whatever the case, the gun debate raged for the better part of the next four months. The National Rifle Association also came out rather quickly, holding a memorable press conference a week after the tragedy and blaming gun-free zones, movies, violent video games, the media, and more for the shooting. The group continued to be vocal as the issue stayed at the top of Congress’ agenda.

Heslin found quickly that with interest groups involved, there was little middle ground to appeal to average people. He was coached to change the way he talked. To this reporter, he mentions the word “gun” and then says, “I shouldn’t have said, ‘Gun.’ The minute you say, ‘gun,’ you’re either pro- or anti-gun.”

So not “gun reform,” but “common sense solutions.” Not “regulation,” or “control,” but “restricting access to certain types of firearms” for which no one has a practical use.

The prospects for some of the more ambitious gun-related proposals faded quickly. The one that everyone rallied around — that made Heslin and other Newtown parents travel to Washington during a week in April — was an expansion of background checks on gun buyers. It was sponsored by Sens. Joe Manchin, a Democrat from gun-loving West Virginia, and Pat Toomey, a Republican from Pennsylvania.

But that one failed, too. Four Democrats joined the vast majority of Republicans, and the bill did not garner the necessary 60 votes to clear a procedural hurdle. And even if it did pass the Senate, its prospects in the House looked even worse.

“It was my worst day in politics,” Murphy said. “In the aftermath, I wasn’t along in being convinced that the tide had turned. You know, I’m a realist. I understand. But I’m shocked we couldn’t muster a few more Republicans.”

“It frustrated me the most because they turned it into a political game,” Heslin said. “You have 90% of Republicans voting one way, 90% of Democrats the other.

“It’s disturbing. It’s angering.”

no red nose.. no red eyes.. no tears.
The kid in that picture is about 2, why doesn't he use a more recent pic of the 6 year old?
the libs completely failed in their attempt to seize guns with Sandy Hook.

they are angry.

the thing is.. as the population becomes MORE DESENSITIZED stuff such as this will have LESS of an effect on people.

people are like.. yeah deaths happen everyday.. i wanna keep my guns.

people see death on the news daily.. sick depraved stuff. without a shock factor.. you can't enact change.

And why does he look 20 years younger in the picture?

They've still got this money laundering scam going full force.

Just to note...it's almost certain Robbie Parker has theater experience as well.

He's one of the few who's history nobody knows much about.

But he worked as the Ogden Raptor's mascot, "Oggie", for three years.

It's pretty standard that getting a job like this, or as a character @ Disneyland, or anything similar generally involves acting/theater experience.

It's the gift of trippy weirdness that just keeps on giving.

Now let's raze this school to the ground! YES!
