GUILFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say they won't be filing charges against a state senator and town police officer who displayed a BB gun that looked like an assault rifle at a church during a gun control discussion.
A report by Guilford police obtained by the
New Haven Register says Democratic Guilford Sen. Edward Meyer and Guilford Officer Patrick Leary didn't violate the law. Police say the BB gun wasn't loaded and the event was on private property.
A North Branford resident complained to police about the gun being brought to First Congregational Church on Sunday. The gun looks like an AR-15, the rifle used in the Newtown school shootings.
Meyer says he bought the gun at a Wal-Mart to help inform church members and notes he's a gun control advocate.

First,,it was NOT an AR15 used in Newtown,,its was a Bushmaster 223, which, granted,,is an AR15 clone. Why you guys simply REFUSE to get this right is beyond me. Im sure now you will hide behind "Its an AP story"..if so LEARN TO PROOFREAD. Did bringing this gun break any laws?? If it didn't..there is nothing to charge anyone with,,if it did, they should be charged no matter who they are
