Connecticut Newspaper Claims Statewide Firearms Ban Possible

Friday, September 15, 2006


The Norwich Bulletin claimed in an editorial today that State Representative Kevin Ryan (D-Montville) intends to take the failed Monvtville discharge ban statewide. 

While Representative Ryan’s long-standing record in support of law-abiding gun owners would indicate that this would not be the type of initiative he would support, we are still trying to clarify Mr. Ryan’s position on possible statewide hearings and introduction of legislation in Hartford. 

The Bulletin has revealed its anti-gun philosophy through news stories and editorials since the Montville discharge ban issue first surfaced and, with the unanimous vote of the Montville City Council to withdraw the ill-advised proposal, the paper has now set its sights on a larger prize:  a state law designed to erode both hunting and shooting rights AND private property rights. 

We look forward to sharing with you a clarification of Representative Ryan’s position on this issue as well as the continued distortions of the Bulletin.  To see the editorial please visit www.norwichbulletin.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060915/OPINION01/609150317/1014
