  • Newtown’s Vote Will Be A Gun Vote

    To the Editor:

    The “vote” in Connecticut this Election Day, represents more than a choice between parties, policies, and/or personalities.  The focus most is guns, rifles and ammo. Those who stand tall living in a state with bipartisan gun control laws, are on one side of the issue. Those who stand tall in support of repeal of Connecticut's gun control laws, are on one side of the issue.  In a true sense, there is no other issue for Connecticut, and certainly not for Newtown, on November 4th.

    I am writing this letter as a private citizen and not as a representative of any entity.

    To the Editor:

    Life is busy.  We all have families, jobs, hobbies, friends, homes, sports….and on and on.  At times, we are weary from being residents of Newtown, where the burden of loss we have suffered is too much.  But last night I heard a horrific news story about yet another tragedy involving a gun in Florida, and I am reminded to stay focused on working to tighten this nation’s shamefully lax gun laws.

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor:

    In the past 21 months, I have met and spoken with many elected officials – both here in Connecticut and in Washington DC – as I advocated for sensible gun legislation. Having spent time with Kim Fawcett on several occasions and after learning about her record as State Representative, I am stepping up to support her for State Senate in District 28 (Newtown, Easton, Fairfield, Weston and Westport).

  • Enforce The Gun Laws Already On The Books

    To the Editor:

    I have sat back and watched, read, listened to the ever present discussions in the paper, television and radio in relation to the gun situation here in United States.

    My question is this: citizens have you gone to a gun store, and asked for the document (s) needed for the purchase of a handgun here in Connecticut? Note I said bought – not carry that is a different set of rules and laws that we will not get into here.

  • Seeking Protection From Gun Violence

    To the Editor:

    Thank you to The Bee for your thorough coverage of the movement to expand and strengthen background checks on the federal level. On page A-7 of the June 6 issue, the article that reported on the #NotOneMore demonstration in front of the NSSF was informative, balanced, and timely.

    To the Editor:

    I would like to take a moment and thank Po Murray, that’s not easy for me to say given her stance on many issues being well on the other side of my own personal beliefs! I would like to thank her for providing the list of those state senators and house representatives who must be defeated in their next election cycle!
