May be, but I can't imagine a context where what he said would be appropriate for the president of a gun club to say.
Neither can I imagine the context where something like that would be appropriate from a pro rights person. I could see someone making a statement like that to push their business interests however if those interests depended on people applying for pistol permits.
Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

Taken out of context or not. The correct response when questioned is "No Comment".

I belonged to the Hartford Gun Club for 2 years. Nice facility but too far from home compared to the club I finally did get into.

That president is kind of a pompous ass.

I mentioned something similar about one of our club members who choose to speak at the Plymouth town hall meeting when Prepare to Act was trying to convert the old rock quarry into a training range.  Speaking as an expert she made some shitty comments, that were not accurate.... instead they seemed very fudd'ish..... of course she didn't see an issue with anything she said, which proves how clueless many in our community are.

If anyone remembers when they used to run IDPA and 3 gun matches they will know that there are some real jerks up there.  They treated competitors like crap and members pointed guns at us as we were setting up and tearing down the stages for the match.

Finally,  after someone got hurt due eroding berms,  (which we complained about on numerous occasions and were told they were fine) they tried to blame the volunteers who were working the match.  The volunteers, including some young coast guard cadets,  were sued and incurred thousands of dollars in legal expenses.

I will never ever go to that club again.  A bunch of total a$$holes.

Is anyone a member at Hartford?  Has the president or management made any statement to the membership about his comments?

Vicevich says he is a member of HGC and speaks glowingly of it but then consider the source.
I love CT. I've lived here my entire life, it's all the socialists and libtards that I hate.

I guess if my club president had said something like this, I'd keep my head down and hope it blows over as well :undecided:
