Connecticut Carry was on hand with a core group of volunteers in a packed meeting room to witness the police commission of Weston table a discussion on a proposed gun ban. According to the police commission, they feel it is too early to discuss such a ban since the first draft of the ordinance is being rewritten after being found to be too restrictive and the selectmen were unable to produce the copy of the ordinance to get proper input from the commission.
Connecticut Carry shares in and supports the commission’s decision to wait for a real ordinance to be discussed. This should also allow some hysteria to pass and for cooler minds prevail. We found very little support for the proposed ban in the crowded meeting hall as First Selectwoman Gayle Weinstein vigorously tried to push the old draft of the ordinance in front of the commission, trying to get them to comment on an ordinance revision that has no chance of passing and is full of constitutional pitfalls that will end up bankrupting the town through ensuing litigation.
Connecticut Carry spent much of the meeting passing out talking points and factual references to help educate the crowd and the officials as to the problems with the ordinance. The literature was well received and was immediately used by residents to question the legitimacy of the ordinance and the motivations of the selectmen.
The town of Weston has our full support and attention in getting this ordinance shelved for good as that is the only appropriate outcome for such a silly, dangerous, reckless and hysterical ordinance that the First Selectwoman and Selectmen seek to inflict upon the residents of Weston.
