Westport Supports The Resolution

We, the undersigned, in the interest of public health  and the safety of our families, request the Westport RTM to vote in favor of the following Sense of the Meeting Resolution.

 

WE, THE MEMBERS OF THE WESTPORT REPRESENTATIVE TOWN MEETING, support gun control legislation in the United States and urge the President and federal legislators, as well as Connecticut state legislators, to enact a ban on automatic and semi-automatic assault weapons and high-capacity magazine clips. Furthermore, we support closing the "gun-show loophole" that allows people to buy guns at trade shows and from private dealers without background checks.
