A gun violence prevention rally is schedule for Tuesday to coincide with a Foley-Christie campaign event in Stamford. The event is part of the ENOUGH Campaign and the Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence with their supporters of gun violence prevention.

According Jonathan Perloe of Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence, the peaceful demonstration seeks to call attention to GOP gubernatorial challenger Tom Foley’s stance on gun laws and the significance of re-electing Gov. Dannel Malloy (D-CT) to protect the state’s gun safety laws.

A release from GCAGV describes Foley as “no friend of common-sense gun laws,” and welcoming the endorsement of the CT Citizens Defense League, which is committed to overturning the 2013 gun safety reforms that passed with a bipartisan majority of the CT General Assembly. Foley is on the record, at the first gubernatorial debate, saying he will not enforce some aspects of the law.

The rally is set for Tuesday, September 23 at 5:30pm, and is scheduled to coincide with Foley campaign event attended by Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) and baseball manager and restaurateur Bobby Valentine in Stamford, on Main St. between Washington and Summer streets, in the Columbus Park area across from Bobby V’s restaurant (225 Main St).
