URBAN GUN VIOLENCE FORUM TONIGHT
The town hall-style meeting is set for 6 p.m. tonight at the Faith Congregational Church at 2030 Main Street in Hartford. According to Rep. Mccrory, Governor Malloy, Hartford county States Attorney Gail Hardy and Hartford Police Chief James Rovella all are expected to attend the discussion which is open to the public.
It is anticipated that the discussion will focus on urban violence in Connecticut's capitol city. Over 300 people have been murdered in Hartford in the last decade, most by handguns, and very few by assault style weapons.
According to Rep McCrory, this is a discussion that most likely should have been held years ago.
