Response to Gov. Christie Visit

July 21, 2014 @ 6:00 pm
Field Point Road & Shore Road
Greenwich, CT 06830

Join us this Monday, July 21, at 6:00 pm as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie comes to Greenwich to raise funds for Tom Foley, the endorsed Republican candidate for Governor.

Our response is to be there with as large a group as possible to let them know what the Connecticut Effect looks like.

CT Against Gun Violence is leading a multi-state coalition of grassroots gun violence prevention groups in a peaceful demonstration to call attention to GOP gubernatorial challenger Tom Foley’s pro-gun stance.

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. The meeting place will be at the intersection of Shore Road and Field Point Rd. We will line up on the sidewalk along Shore Rd. leading away from the Guard House at the entrance to Belle Haven. Parking is on the south side of Shore Rd. or as directed by local law enforcement. Do not enter Belle Haven, which is private property. Please do not be disrespectful (we’re there to protest that behavior!). This is a peaceful demonstration.

Handheld signs encouraged! Children very welcome!
