For the first time in 40 years, a pro-gun Republican was elected in Connecticut’s 53rd district, a district that had been controlled by Democrats for 40 years straight.
Samuel Belsito was elected to his first term in a Special Election and was sworn into office on June 19th, 2013.
He said he would have voted against the recent gun control legislation passed by Connecticut lawmakers.
The defeat of an anti-gun candidate flies in the face of what gun grabbers have been saying. Pro-gun candidates are not supposed to able to win elections here, especially in a state that has been overwhelmed with anti-gun agendas.
This election transcends whether or not the candidate was a Republican or Democrat. It was a vote against any who would attempt to limit constitutional and God-given rights of self-protection.
Who knows? Maybe things will turn around in Connecticut after all.
