During a recent public hearing in Hartford, Connecticut about gun violence, the same hearing where the Sandy Hook father explained why his daughter is safer at home where he can protect her with firearms than at school, legal immigrant Henson Ong argued against gun control legislation being proposed in the state. Ong cited American history, the Los Angeles riots of the 1990s and tyranny overseas as examples as to why the Second Amendment is needed. He also pointed out that the United States has a long history of gun ownership ranging from high school rifle teams to hunting, yet only in modern times has seen mass school shootings. He cited multiple court cases in the United States proving Americans have every right to own military grade firearms and have a duty to protect themselves and their country.

"Your own history is replete with high school rifle teams, Boy Scouts, marksmanship merit badges, you could buy rifles at hardware stores, you could order them, mail order, delivered to your home, your country was awash in readily available firearms and ammunition and yet in your past you did not have mass school shootings. Other people have already expressed the question, what changed? It was not that the availability of guns suddenly exploded and increased, it was actually decreased, what changed is societal decay."
