Gun-Control Group's First Meeting Draws Large Crowd

The first meeting of the Community Coalition for Responsible Gun Control was held Monday night at the Community House ... were you there? What did you take away from the meeting?

About 100 people, including state legislators and representatives of U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy and Third District U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, packed the Community House on Church Street Monday night for the first meeting of the Community Coalition for Responsible Gun Control, according to the New Haven Register.

The group is the brainchild of Branford resident and current Board of Education Chair Frank Carrano, who told Patch last week that he "felt compelled to do some followup" after he posted concerns over gun control on his Facebook page following the Sandy Hook School shooting in Newtown and "people were really responsive."

According to the Register, the discussion at Monday night's meeting, which was attended by state Sen. Ed Meyer and state Reps. Patricia Widlitz and Lonnie Reed, stayed focused mostly on the root causes of gun violence.

Did you attend the meeting? Was the discussion meaningful? Will you attend future meetings? Tell us in the comments.

there are many dirty secrets that the public knows nothing about....unfortunately for those who choose to rule over us instead of represent do not realize that far too many people today .....are awake and now realize what our future holds Warren v. District of Columbia[1] (444 A.2d. 1, D.C. Ct. of Ap. 1981) is an oft-quoted[2] District of Columbia Court of Appeals (equivalent to a state supreme court) case that held police do not have a duty to provide police services to individuals, even if a dispatcher promises help to be on the way, except when police develop a special duty to particular individuals. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_v._District_of_Columbia

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN...if it truly was then our RULERS would be passing a bill immediately so our teachers and administrators could be ARMED....this whole folly is nothing but an IDEOLOGICAL CRUSADE....
