The gun debate continues across the country and in our towns. At the Newport Selectboard meeting on Monday, John Lunn addressed the board to ask about having a dialogue in the town about gun safety. Lunn thought that local legislation could be presented to the state. Chairman Irwin said that the board could include gun safety as a discussion within the Master Plan. Vice Chairman Gary Nichols said that he didn’t know if Newport could have the discussion at this time since the Newport Safety Coalition is suing the town and emotions are already high.
