WESTON, Conn. – Weston First Selectman Gayle Weinstein, who is pushing a local gun control ordinance, will be on the bus with more than 200 other residents to attend the March for Change rally in Hartford on Feb. 14.
“It’s very important that we’re involved in the grass roots effort to change state regulations regarding gun control,” she said. “March for Change is an opportunity to take an important step in demanding the type of changes that will help keep our children safe."
Dawn Egan, who is coordinating the local effort said, “Three of four of the buses are filled and we’ll fill the fourth. I get calls every day from community members who want changes in gun laws. We’re excited about the national conversation and what’s happening with our Connecticut legislators who are revising current laws.”
March for Change is sponsored by the Fairfield County chapter of One Million Moms For Gun Control, which supports a ban on automatic weapons, reducing the number of clips in gun magazines and enforcing background checks for gun owners.
Buses will depart from the St. Francis of Assisi Church parking lot at 8:30 a.m., with boarding beginning at 8. The cost is $20 per person with reservations required. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 25 to reserve a seat.
