Newtown Action Alliance, the grassroots gun violence prevention group created after the Sandy Hook shooting, will hold a town hall meeting with members of the General Assembly\’s Bipartisan Task Force On Gun Violence Prevention And Children\’s Safety.
The educational meeting will give residents a chance to learn more about actions pursued in the legislature. It will be held at Newtown High School from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and is open to the public.
Sen. John McKinney and Reps. Mitch Bolinsky, Dan Carter, Gerry Fox, and Lonnie Reed have all been confirmed to participate. McKinney, Bolinsky, Carter, and Fox are all on the legislative task force, and the first three of them represent Newtown.
“ This will be a great opportunity for all Connecticut residents to ask questions and discuss the critical issue of gun violence,” said Po Murray in a statement from the organization. \”I also wonder about the task force and I am grateful these officials are willing to help us understand what legislation may be in development.\”
