MAYOR BRONIN RESPONDS TO NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION

MAYOR BRONIN RESPONDS TO NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION 

HARTFORD, CONN (March 6, 2018) – Mayor Luke Bronin issued the statement below after the National Rifle Association (NRA) claimed that “no organization in the world does more to promote the safe and responsible use of firearms,” in response to Mayor Bronin’s call to end their role in the gun permitting process in Connecticut.  The NRAopposes gun permitting and many other gun safety measures.

“If the NRA had its way, there wouldn’t even be a permitting process in Connecticut.  This is an organization that opposes permitting and universal background checks and would leave guns in the hands of domestic abusers.  The idea that the NRA is an organization focused on gun safety is laughable. The NRA’s main mission is to oppose common-sense gun laws and to threaten anyone who challenges the NRA agenda.”
