Fed Musante photo Shelton Alderman Jack Finn’s proposed weapons-free zone ordinance died Thursday following a barrage of negative comments from Republican aldermen, including one that compared gun control measures to tactics used by World War II dictators

On the motion to reject the ordinance, the Board of Aldermen’s seven Republicans aldermen voted in favor, with only Finn, the lone Democrat, dissenting.

Many of the comments made by aldermen speaking against the proposal would be familiar to anyone who has followed the gun control debate since the tragic school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December.

At least someone has a logical approach to this issue. Leaving yourself open to criminals is wrong. These are the type of regulations that are real hard or expensive to enforce, especially as a small town ordinance.
