Southbury town meeting on proposed gun ban; Thursday, November 2nd at 7:00PM at the Pomperaug High School auditorium.

The Southbury Democratic Town Committee (SDTC) has requested that the Board of Selectmen consider an ordinance to prohibit firearms on all town property. Ultimately, making these places “Gun Free Zones”.

The Board of Selectmen voted to explore this idea further, and added it to the agenda for their October 19th meeting.

Many of the hundreds of Southbury CCDL members and supporters came out to the October 19th meeting to voice their concerns on this proposed town gun ban. So many, the meeting was rescheduled due to crowd size. The new date and location is Thursday, November 2nd at 7:00PM at the Pomperaug High School auditorium, 234 Judd Rd, Southbury, CT. You should plan on arriving early, and sitting in the front of the room. (Please remember that schools are gun free zones)
