Dems laud passage of state gun control laws
To the editor:
Last week, Connecticut Democrats and Republicans came together and passed one of the nation's strictest gun control laws.
As New Milford Democrats, we thank these legislators for their commitment and perseverance in getting this measure passed, especially Rep. Richard Smith (R-New Fairfield) for his courageous vote in favor of the bill.
It is our hope Connecticut's new law will serve as an example for the rest of the country.
We believe their vote is a disservice to all children and adults who are killed every day in the U.S. as a result of gun violence.
We urge New Milford residents to support Sen. Blumenthal and Sen. Murphy and Rep. Esty in their pursuit of a strong, national gun control bill.
