Montville, Connecticut Mayor Withdrew Anti-Gun Proposal!

Friday, August 25, 2006

Due to strong opposition from local residents and a lack of support from town council members, the proposal to severely restrict the discharge of a firearm within the Town of Montville has been dropped. 

This comes on the heels of last week’s town council meeting, where introduction of the measure was postponed due to the overwhelming number of NRA members who showed up to voice their concerns. 

Although this latest development is certainly good news, we can’t consider this fight over.  In fact, the Norwich Bulletin doesn’t even think gun owners and sportsmen have the right to be heard.
