    Montville, Connecticut Mayor Proposing Anti-Gun Ordinance!

    The Mayor of Montville, Joseph Jaskiewicz (D), has proposed an ordinance that would ban the discharge of a firearm within the town of Montville. This proposed ordinance would prohibit all types of recreational shooting, even where it is safe to do so. More importantly, it makes no exception for the use of a firearm for self-defense.

    I dont ever recall reading a " self defense clause " on any ordinance tha addressed discharge of firearms within a municapality , IMHO that falls under common sense or an affirmitive defense , ie yea i did it , but had i not the conciquinces would be worse .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    sheesh!... makes no sense.
    what's the purpose of this? It's already a crime to commit a crime, so why make this law.
    It could only hurt the law abiding citizen.
    Sometimes my head whirls with the BS that goes on.

    They should make felons owning guns a crime. Oh wait it already is, why not enforece those laws on the books instead of B.S. more laws.

    Hizzoner the Mayor probably doesn't allow the police to carry guns.

    Most, if not all, ideas should be thought through before they are made public.

    I was going to post something rather sarcastic and hilarious. I decided against it due to the fact that this guy just isn't worth a joke that good. lol

    I suppose Montville citizens would have to use their guns to bludgeon their attackers instead of shooting them.

    I guess the Montville, Connecticut police department can't ever use their firearms either?

    The ensuing lawsuits from victim's families will bankrupt both the town and it's officials I'm sure...
    Looks like they didn't think about that...

    You could ram your holstered hip into them over and over until they stop attacking you.
