YOUR VIEW: State doesn't need more people with guns

To the Editor:

Thank you Gov. Lamont and Attorney General William Tong for suspending the state law that prohibits state police and local police officials from refusing to collect fingerprints, as part of efforts to prevent the spread of the virus.

What we don’t need in our state or in our country is more gun toting nuts. The Connecticut Citizens Defense League is just one more organization, like the NRA, that promotes more gun ownership. How many more gun related violent crimes against people and massacres have to occur before we put a limit on gun ownership?
