Jesus wept. What these clowns are doing is saying to the criminal element (you think anybody wants to rob a bunch of rich white guys in rural Connecticut? Nahhhhhh.) that there exists, in Weston, a bunch of prospects for theft, burglary, home invasion and what have you and they are unarmed.
Now we all know that this idiotic proposal is not going to happen. Weston is a small town and can not afford the lawsuits that are going to ensue. In fact, the very existence of the possibility that such legislation would be considered by the Selectmen is ample grounds for a claim of malfeasance and the basis for rapid recall. It is likely that the Selectmen in question will be doing something else this time next year. Also, the State of Connecticut takes a dim view of having it's prerogatives usurped by a bunch of small time political hacks.
So we need to ask "why?".
I will tell you why. The Selectmen think that this is their chance for stardom. That in the Liberal firmament they will stand out as beacons of rectitude. That they will force their neighbors to forgo personal defense in favor of trust in their Police and local Government.
Pardon me for a moment
