Gun control advocates rally in Morristown against concealed carry bill

Gun control advocates held a protest rally in Morristown Wednesday to oppose a bill that would allow gun owners with concealed handgun permits to carry in all states.



The local chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence marched to Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen's office and then through Morristown's downtown area to oppose HR-38. Protesters say they want more gun control, not less.



"I started back at Sandy Hook four years ago," says advocate Dwight Panozzo. "I just couldn't stand what was happening, and I felt totally helpless. And after 10 letters to the editor, which never got published, I said 'Get out on the street, do something about it.'"



The bill was referred to a subcommittee on crime, terrorism and homeland security last month.
