Thank you for your reply, your right this was not the response I was hoping for. As a State Senator, Mr Kelly has far more influence with State Government than I do. While your probably right that he can't directly order them to make any changes I would imagine he could make a few calls or have someone do it for him to see what changes could be made.
I could call the Governor and make a similar request of him as I did of you however; it would certainly mean more coming from Senator Kelly than it would coming from me. We elect local representatives so that those persons we elect can "Represent" us. If I'm going to have to call the Governor myself to get something done then why do we need you?
You say that as long as a person is legally allowed to carry that there will be no impact from this campaign. I disagree totally. The act of the Govt telling common citizens to report people to the police for openly carrying a firearm is equivalent to telling them to report someone for wearing a specific color shirt or for driving their car on Sunday. The campaign is causing law abiding citizens to be scrutinized by law enforcement simply for exercising their 2nd Amendment rights, and their rights given to them by CT state law. How would you feel if every time you left your driveway you were stopped by the police and asked to provide proof that you were allowed to drive your car? This is the sort of thing that has already happened to people in CT without the aid of the "See something, Say something" campaign. I could point to several cases where law abiding citizens were detained, questioned, and in fact arrested for openly carrying a firearm. In each case charges were dropped by the District Attorney as having insufficient probable cause to charge the person. This has still caused significant hardship to the individual throughout the entire process. Having the police called on you for doing something that is perfectly legal does in fact have a significant impact on an individual.
This is the kind of thing I am hoping to avoid by having this site changed. Every day that website goes unchanged is more people that have been misinformed as to the legality of openly carrying a firearm. People that have been told by their Govt that there is something wrong or illegal about openly carrying a firearm. This needs to be changed. We have enough issues combating ignorance when it comes to firearms without Govt adding to them.
I would appreciate Senator Kelly taking some time to help see that this issue is addressed.
