Pro-Gun Republican Wins CT District First Time in 40 Years
A pro-Second Amendment candidate running as a Republican just won Connecticut’s 53rd District, a district which has been held by anti-gun Democrats for forty years.
Whether they are standing up face-to-face to lawmakers or simply ignoring the new gun registration laws, Connecticut gun owners are participating in one of the largest demonstrations of civil disobedience in recent history — and their pro-gun message is winning.
Although Democrats and progressives have claimed politicians who oppose gun control will lose their offices at the hands of angry, pro-gun control Americans in coming elections, a pro-gun Republican just won in Connecticut. It is the first time a Republican has held the seat in 40 years.This vote represents so much more than the “battle” between Republicans and Democrats; this was a vote for the protection of the Second Amendment.
Samuel Belsito won the Connecticut State Legislature’s 53rd District in a special election to replace Democrat representative Bryan Hurlburt.
Belsito’s election runs 100% counter to the argument that pro-gun positions will hurt politicians. For example, Belsito won although he made it clear he would have opposed the recent body of gun control legislation that passed in Connecticut.
Voters in Connecticut sent a message loud and clear: If you intend to infringe on our natural right to defense, you will not hold public office. Period.
