Rep. Dykema Hosts Gun Violence Listening Tour in MetroWest

By contributor,

Representative Dykema has invited Representative Hank Naughton, Chairman of the Joint legislative Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security to bring his Gun Violence Listening Tour to the 8th Middlesex District.

Gun Violence Listening Tour
Monday September 9th, 7pm
Holliston Upper Town Hall
703 Washington Street
Holliston, MA

Recent tragedies have led to a national discussion about gun violence. While Massachusetts has some of the most stringent firearms regulations in the country, we also have an opportunity to assess whether there’s more we can do to protect the safety of our citizens. An important step in this assessment is hearing from residents.
The purpose of the Gun Violence Listening Tour is to promote an informed discussion on possible preventative solutions to gun violence. Representative Naughton uses these local Listening Tours as a tool to further educate himself on firearm related issues that continue to affect communities throughout the Commonwealth. In order to most effectively explore solutions, Representative Naughton is committed to visiting different areas of the Commonwealth, including the 8th Middlesex District, to gain a sense of what specific issues need to be addressed.

This is a great opportunity for town elected officials, local area residents, and organizations to sit down and respectfully discuss firearm-related concerns and influence future legislation. Such concerns include, but are not limited to firearm safety, school safety, licensing and regulations, hunting, and mental health.

RSVPs are requested but not required to or 617-722-2210.
