    Well Let's See

    The media is making a mess out of this apparently. The Mayor should make sure his gun remains concealed. However, sounds like a lot of the council members carry, or own guns, which in my opinion is cool as heck. They should along with the rest of the citizens of Stratford do what we did here with Their Ordinance proposal.... Tell them to stick it! :)

    Noone seems to mention that Stratford butts up against Bridgeport which is as good a reason as any to be armed.

    Murder can happen in the middle of a green grassy field at an Amish school in Nowhere Pennsylvania. People should be have the right to self-defense anywhere,including the Mayor. I don't think the police force is a personal bodyguard service for the Mayor...

    I grew up in Stratford and just went back for a visit. I was distinctly uncomfortable when I had to get off I-95 and drive through Bridgeport. As for the guy who didn't want to let the mayor carry at Town Hall because of how close it is to SHS, get real!

    As far as open carry, I was told, in my NRA class, that if someone spotted my gun and called the police the officer who responds is the one to make the call and it all depends on his or her mood that day pretty much. If they want to make an issue out of it they can.

    He is teaching the children to take responsibility for their own safety, and to fully exercise a Constitutional Right.

    Right on the money 280. Even though there is nothing in the State Statutes, I did find this little tidbit that is hidden in the state firearms website, even though there is no lw about open carry, the CT.GOV people make crap up as the go along... Here it is: http://www.ct.gov/bfpe/cwp/view.asp?a=1252&q=254186

    Nope. You have to conceal carry. Romma and 280 are right, there's not much on the books, but off private property you are going to get a visit from an LEO.

    I saw this yesterday on the news and was glad the mayor stood up for his legal carry of a firearm. However, the media found folks that thought this was "sending the wrong message" :barf: He is setting the proper example, legal concealed carry in a dangerous world. We can't coddle our children so much that they don't understand how dangerous a world we live in these days. I wish they would have interviewed me, 280 or romma :evil:

    Like he has to be involved in crime to legally own a gun?:banghead: What an idiot!:rolleyes:

    I am sincerely proud that the pro-gun Ct people are fighting tooth-n-nail these days. It is almost as if we are a tipping state lately. A lot of small victories and slightly less bigoted news articles.

    Well, given there's supposed to be about 400,000 of us with CCW alone out there you'd think Schlesinger would be giving the Dems more of a run for their money than he is. Too bad. Plus I see where the NRA gave both jodi and Destefano an "F", that kinda sucks too. I always thought she was more receptive than that. :rolleyes:

    Shootin' tomorrow dis?

    We need to get romma out there, looks like he's pretty surprisingly close to Montville. Gotta check with the juggler first though. :D

    The reason our ccw level is so high here in Ct is that in order to purchase a handgun, you need either the permit, or the eligibility cert. Most people I know with permits in Ct don't carry with any regularity. Although I know some.

    Can an "average citizen" CCW into a City Council meeting?

    If yes, then this is a non-issue.

    If no, then IMO the Mayor and Councilmembers shouldn't, either. They aren't a "ruling class".

    As long as the meeting is not in a school or courthouse it's not an issue. As for the mayor CCW, at least he is legal to do so, unlike a certain mayor, eh hum Daley, of a certain anti-gun city:rolleyes:

    God Bless Connecticut...and may it avoid becoming more like NY and MA, and...need I continue?

    I was born and raised there, and I still have family and friends there, although through a "joint venture" with Uncle Sam, I left there in 1977...
