Montville, Connecticut Anti-Gun Ordinance Overwhelmingly Opposed by Residents!

Friday, August 18, 2006


The fire marshal was forced to call an end to the town council meeting last night, due to the overwhelming number of people who showed up to express their opposition to Mayor Joseph Jaskiewicz’s (D) proposal. 


The proposed 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 proposal would also 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 prohibit hunting and any recreational shooting by those under 16 that does not take place on an “authorized” range. 


The town council decided to pull the proposal from last night’s agenda and will consider it at a later date when a larger space is found to accomodate those who wish to speak on the proposal. 


A special thank you to those gun owners and sportsmen who attended the meeting to make their voices heard! 


It is imperative that NRA members continue to contact

Mayor Jaskiewicz at (860) 848-3030 Ext. 301 and

 urge him to withdraw his anti-gun proposal.
