School board leaders and community representatives are holding an organizational meeting of a new Community Coalition for Responsible Gun Control.
The meeting, called by Board of Education chair Frank Carrano, is set for the evening of Mon. Jan. 14 at the Community House. The meeting is being called as the result of some informal conversations and is not an official Board of Education meeting, Carrano told The Sound. Coalition members were notified of their invitation to attend the meeting on Jan. 7 via email from Carrano, who also invited The Sound to attend.
In the invitation, Carrano wrote, "...we hope to develop goals and strategies that will successfully improve the sale and use of firearms as well as discuss other matters relating to public safety."
Carrano said the public is welcome to attend the meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. on Mon. Jan. 14 at the Branford Community House, 46Church St.
