Riley Burns started this petition to Newtown Council

The Newtown Action Alliance (NAA) have proposed a bill with three different parts that are being looked over right now, the first one would ban open carry on public property, the second one would ban open carry at public demonstrations and the third one would ban open carry of long guns. 

These three laws would make kids and adults feel safer, and help prevent any harm that could arise. It is unfair to go to a public place such as Fairfield Hills to play on the fields or go for a walk, and feel threatened by a gun, especially when it is preventable. At public demonstrations such as gun control protests, members from the NAA have been confronted by people from the opposing side and have felt threatened because they were carrying a firearm. If the second amendment is infringing upon the first amendment, shouldn't something be done? 

These three laws had been brought up at the Newtown town legislative council meeting on December 2, 2020, and it was a split vote. In the end, the proposal was voted to be looked at by the town lawyers to see if there would be any liability. 

Signing this petition shows your support for the passing of this bill and you will help to make our community of Newtown a safer place for all.
