Calling for a New Location for the State Police Firing Range

state policeEarlier this month, I put together a bipartisan public hearing on the proposed sites for a new Connecticut State Police Firearms Training Facility. I was joined by Sen. Tony Guglielmo (R-Stafford), Rep. Stephen Dargan (D-West Haven), and Rep. Lezlye Zupkus (R-Prospect) as we questioned the Connecticut Department of Emergency Service and Public Protection (DESPP) and the Connecticut Department of Administrative Services (DAS) on why Willington and East Windsor were chosen as sites for a new firing range.

The hearing was an incredible success as we had a great showing from the community. A standing room only crowd stood with us in opposition to the state's proposed locations.

This week, I along with my Democratic and Republican colleagues called for the State of Connecticut to choose alternative sites for the new firing range. It is all too clear that East Windsor and Willington are not suitable sites for the facility. We all want to see this firing range go somewhere else.

We need to focus on alternatives that are less expensive and don't call for the taxpayers to build a new elaborate facility. Please let me know if you agree and want to see this firing range go to a location that makes sense for the community and Connecticut's bottom line.
