Himes to Hold Wilton Discussion on Gun Violence Prevention Bill

March 20 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

U.S. Representative Jim Himes (CT-4) will be making a stop in Wilton on Wednesday, March 20, to lead a discussion on gun violence prevention measures. He’ll be updating constituents on gun violence prevention priorities for the U.S. House of Representatives, and HR-8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, which passed the House on Feb. 27, 2019, by a vote of 240-190.

It has since been sent to the Senate, and if it passes it will move on to the President to be signed into law.

This bill prohibits firearm transfers between private parties and unlicensed individuals without a licensed gun dealer, manufacturer, or importer first taking possession of the firearm to conduct a background check.

The meeting will be held at Comstock Community Center (198 School Rd.), in Room 31 from 3:30-4:30 p.m..
