Stratford residents up in arms after mayor admits bearing arms
Stratford?s mayor defended his right to bear arms after coworkers reportedly said Mayor Jim Miron carries a gun on the job.According to the CT Post, Town Hall employees complained Miron was carrying a weapon while at work and at town meetings. Miron responded Monday, defending his legal right to bear arms. He said he is not ashamed to admit to the public that he has a pistol permit and owns a gun. However, Miron insists it is for the sole purpose of self-defense.He would not say whether he carries the weapon with him at work, but he says he has never shown it to anyone in a public setting. Residents don?t know why Miron would need to carry a gun while conducting town business.Councilman Robert Camillo (R-CT) defends Miron. He says anyone, including the mayor, has the right to carry a gun after completing the required legal process. He also said he is not aware of any complaints.
