One Connecticut municipality may soon ban guns on all town property if a group of city leaders gets its wish. The local Board of Selectmen will hold a public hearing tonight on an ordinance proposed by the Southbury, Conn., Democratic Town Committee (SDTC) that would turn city property into a giant “gun-free zone.”
In a letter, the SDTC attempts to use the violence in Charlotte to justify abrogating residents’ Second Amendment rights, going so far as to suggest that children’s lives would be put in danger without it—but as carry permit holders are among the most law-abiding segments of society, and criminals don’t pay attention to laws anyway, the law is at best unnecessary, and at worst will endanger those same lives that they purport to be saving.

The hearing will take place at 7 p.m. tonight at the Pomperaud High School Auditorium. For more information or to contact your selectmen,click here.
