Legal Immigrant Henson Ong Takes Bold Stand Against Gun Control During Public Hearing in Connecticut

Connecticut resident and legal immigrant Henson Ong (YouTube)

During a public hearing on gun violence in Hartford, Conn. on Monday, a legal immigrant by the name of Henson Ong issued a passionate defense of the Second Amendment and argued that gun control simply “does not work.” The video of Ong’s testimony has already surpassed 130,000 views on YouTube.

“Forgive me, English is not my first language. I am a legal immigrant and I am an American by choice,” he began, prompting applause from the audience.

“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to express my opinion and give my testimony in opposition to the majority of the proposed bills, which do nothing to deter future crimes,” he added. “Gun control doesn’t work.”

Ong then launched into a impassioned diatribe about what he considers to be the real problem fueling gun gun violence — “societal decay.”

“Your own history is replete with high school rifle teams, boy scout marksmanship merit badges,” he explained. “You could buy rifles at hardware stores, you could order them… your country was awash in readily available firearms and ammunition, and yet in your past you did not have mass school shootings*.”

“What changed?” he asked. “It was not that the availability of guns suddenly exploded or increased, it actually was decreased. What changed was societal decay,” he added, resulting in more applause.

Society has sure decayed in the past 20 to 30 years for sure. People don't care any longer. No value for life.

One of the best ways to take control of a population is remove their ability to defend themselves, and then to take control of their food source.  Anyone see the parallel?  The right to bear arms is being trampled.  we have millions upon millions dependng on the govrnment for their food (food stamps).  Am I the only one that sees what comes next?
