Father of Sandy Hook slain child heckled

I respect that gun lovers are passionate about their guns and 2nd Amendment rights. But they do little for their cause when they heckle the father of a slain Sandy Hook child.

This is pretty disgusting:
A false fire alarm, 45-minute waits to get into the Capitol complex, even the heckling of a bereaved parent of a Newtown shooting victim marked Monday's day-long legislative hearing on gun control.

"The Second Amendment!" was shouted by several gun enthusiasts in the meeting room as Neil Heslin, holding a photo of his 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, asked why Bushmaster assault-style weapons are allowed to be sold in the state. "There are a lot of things that should be changed to prevent what happened," said Heslin, who grew up using guns and seemed undisturbed by the interruption of his testimony.
Just because you CAN raise your voice, doesn't mean you have to lose your sense of compassion.
