My name is Rich Burgess. I am part of some of the 'gun rights movement' here in Connecticut.
I think many people have given up on us considering our neighbors, but we have an active gun community here. I am currently working on issues with regards to Open Carry, and we have people working on our permitting process and other things that are currently being abused here.
Recently a local paper has picked up on this and gave a pretty good and fair article (for journalists in traditional media). I thought you might like to share this with your readers. It certainly is a good primer about what is going on here and we could use whatever help and/or attention we can get.
These are actually all the same article, but are distributed all over the state and they have different and separate comment systems:http://www.hartfordadvocate.

If you find yourself interested in any of the incidents listed in the article, I would be happy to get you whatever info you need.
Thank you,Rich BurgessPh: 203.208.9577
