Newtown State Rep. votes against gun control

Oh this is rich!

Throughtout the gun control leglisation process, when it came to the General Assembly drafting policy, Newtown's State Rep. (and proud ALEC member) Dan Carter went out of his way to stress the need for "bi-partisanship."  

Given the fact that the Democrats at the Capitol hold a 2-1 majority over the Republicans, I guess the compromise Democrats and Republcians came up with in Hartford, which allows gun owners to keep their assault weapons and high capacity magazines, wasn't enough for Newtown's Republican State Represenative since Carter was the only state lawmaker from Newtown that voted against the gun control package (even radical and outspoken State Rep. DebraLee Hovey voted in favor of the package).

I guess State Rep. Carter can be proud of contining his tratdition of stressing the need for "bi-partisanship" on one hand while voting almost 70 percent lock in step with the NRA agenda. As someone who has interviewed State Rep. Carter on multiple occasions, I can't wait to hear what the Man from ALEC has to say about his vote the next time he holds a town meeting in Newtown.
