Foley has allied himself to Gov. Christie who recently vetoed a bill that would have limited high capacity magazines to no more than ten rounds. Christie refused to meet with Newtown families before he vetoed the measure.
Foley is no friend of common-sense gun laws, having stated "If I'm governor, any further attempts and restrictions on law-abiding gun owners by our legislature will stop at the governor's office.'' And "Had I been governor, the outcome in Connecticut would have been different.''
So please join us as we meet on the route to the fundraiser which is to be held in the Belle Haven section of Greenwich.WHO: CT Gun Violence Prevention Coalition, led by CT Against Gun Violence, joined by Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence and many other groups.
