This photo was taken 1/28/13 at the Hartford Connecticut Public Hearing on new proposed gun legislation where thousands of CT residents turned out with over 1300 registering to give testimony. Those in attendance were overwhelmingly 2nd Amendment supporters. Seen in the photo is State Senator, Assistant Majority Leader, and gun ban proposal coauthor, Beth Bye. While the other legislative officials in attendance all listened intently to testimony given from both sides of the fence, Bye spent hours playing on Facebook, posting and chatting with friends, and blatantly ignoring all testimonials which opposed her stance.

Tell her what you think at Bye@senatedems.ct.gov

An anti not listening to the opposition?

This is what is known as the art of compromise. I think the ARFcom appeasers call it playing chess.

Sent that dirtbag an email. This is behavior you might expect out of a young teenager during class, not an elected representative during very critical testimonies. This needs to be plastered through he news... oh wait, their agenda is the same as hers- promote mindless gun control while ignoring pro-gun logic. Nevermind.

Depends on what page she was checking - her personal family page vs her "official" page where folks might actually post work related comments. Possibly even ones pertaining to the hearing.

No she was checking Facebook ct capital report and twitter. She tweeted a local local liberal about drinking games using the word "law abiding" by pro 2nd amendment people.

Why are you guys outraged by all of this? Did you really think she was there to listen to opinions that differ from hers? Do you really think she is going to have an epiphany after she reads your fiery rhetoric and changes her mind?

She's part of the ruling class, we're just plebes...

I'm just fed up with the faux "concern". I'd rather she just stayed home. She wasn't part of the committee, wasn't required to be there.

I want the online community to destroy this woman.

I don't care how. Social media and donations and letters and whatever else it takes. She epitomizes modern government evil in its purest form.

Surfing the internet while ignoring the citizenry explain the most blatant and overt constitutional infringements. Good fucking grief.
