Saul Cornell, a Redding resident and one of the nation’s leading scholars on the Second Amendment and gun regulations, will moderate a meeting with local legislators and public safety officials. The public forum is set for Monday, Feb. 4, at the Redding Community Center at 7:30 p.m.
The forum provides an opportunity for state representatives, including those who represent Weston, and law enforcement officials to share with the community their thoughts on what needs to be done to make communities and schools safer.
Invited to attend are state Reps. Dan Carter (R-2) and John Shaban (R-135), state Sen. Toni Boucher (R-26), Redding Police Chief Doug Fuchs, and representatives from the offices of Connecticut Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy.
The forum is open to the public, with ample time for questions from the audience.
The event follows on the heels of Dr. Cornell’s well-attended talk held in Redding on Jan. 14 — the one month anniversary of the Newtown school shootings — on American history, gun violence and gun regulations.
The Redding Community Center is at 37 Lonetown Road, behind Redding Elementary School.
