On Friday April 11, 2014 there will be a special election in the 61st Assembly District to fill the House seat that had been held by Rep. Elaine O’Brien (D) before her recent death. O’Brien voted yes last year to take away your gun rights. The 61st District is made up of East Granby, Suffield, and parts of Windsor.
The only pro-gun candidate in this election is Tami Zawistowski. Tami has publicly stated that if she had been in office, she would not have voted for the recent anti-gun bill. Tami ran for this same seat in 2012, and lost by less then 500 votes, so we have a really good chance to flip a House seat from anti-gun to pro-gun. And that’s what we MUST do. As long as the anti’s have a majority in the House and Senate, they are going to keep chipping away at your right to keep and bear arms until it’s gone completely.
