Montville, Connecticut Mayor Attempting to Limit the Right to Keep and Bear Arms!

Friday, August 11, 2006

 

Thanks to concerned law-abiding gun owners, NRA has finally obtained Montville Mayor Joseph Jaskiewicz’s (D) proposal to restrict shooting in Montville.  After reviewing the proposal, NRA still finds that the ordinance would severely limit the rights of recreational shooters, or those who might be faced with using a firearm for personal protection, and would threaten to shut down safe shooting ranges. 

The measure would outlaw the discharge of a firearm “within 500 feet of an occupied building, near livestock, pets or people, or land designated as a nature preserve, conservancy or town park,” and would also prohibit hunting and any recreational shooting by those under 16 that does not take place on an “authorized” range.  The measure is set to be introduced to the Town Council on Monday, August 14. 

We urge NRA members to attend this meeting, which begins at 7:00 p.m., at the Montville Town Hall, 310 Norwich-New London Turnpike, Uncasville, CT 06382 in the 1st Floor Council Chambers Room.  If you can't attend the meeting please contact Mayor Jaskiewicz at (860) 848-3030 Ext. 301, and urge him to drop his proposal.  Also be sure to contact your Town Council members to ask them to oppose Mayor Jaskiewicz’s anti-gun measure. 

You can contact Council members at the following link: www.townofmontville.org/CMS/default.asp?CMS_AreaID=122, or by calling (860) 848-1349.

Please keep checking your e-mail and www.NRAILA.org for future updates on this new threat to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in the Town of Montville!
