About 100 people, including state legislators and representatives of U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy and Third District U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, packed the Community House on Church Street Monday night for the first meeting of the Community Coalition for Responsible Gun Control, according to the New Haven Register.
The group is the brainchild of Branford resident and current Branford Board of Education Chair Frank Carrano, who told Patch last week that he "felt compelled to do some follow up" after he posted concerns over gun control on his Facebook page following the Sandy Hook School shooting in Newtown and "people were really responsive."
According to the Register, the discussion at Monday night's meeting, which was attended by state Sen. Ed Meyer and state Reps. Patricia Widlitz and Lonnie Reed, stayed focused mostly on the root causes of gun violence.
