    New Britain OC and The New Britain Herald article (and city council info).

    For your reading enjoyment.

    Far too many issues with the article.......

    I like the term "city law" myself......

    Rich B: My favorite argument against OC being legal in CT is "I have never seen someone OC in CT".
    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    I really don't get the whole no citizen should have a gun. Do they really think that will be the ONE law BG's would choose to follow? Just ridiculous!

    A quote by a misinformed reporter. I saw the proposed change in writing. The only change to this ordinance is the removal of the word pistol and the section making LEO exempt. Basically brings them into harmony with state laws. When signed you will now be able to carry openly or concealed (the old wording basically mandated OC).

    We just want the town in line with state law. The benefit with even getting to that point is the fact that more officers know that open carry is indeed legal.

    Interesting though...... a friend who knows some board members seemed to know several places I've been in town (OCing, of course) and yet I had no interaction with LEOs. So, obviously if phone calls are made to 911, I wasn't stopped.

    Gunslinger, I 100% agree with you and disagree with Rev. Brown. Additionally, I enjoy your posts and contribution to the Connecticut forum. That being said I don't believe we need racial undertones in our posts. Ct is a very diverse state, and I personally have several minority friends who have pistol permits and are fighting for 2A rights.

    No racial overtone was implied. Jackson made the quote himself about "shuckin' and jiven' (being) a political force." My post was intended to be humerous, not divisive. If you took it that way, my apoligies. I too have many minority friends who put freedom first.

    Any gun control laws hit the minorities the hardest ...
