"Gays Against Guns" marched against Sturm, Ruger. Their slogan: Sturm, Ruger is worse than Freddy Krueger.
Via CT Post:
Christine Bisceglie was reading an opinion piece on gun control last month, soon after the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas that took 26 lives, when one detail struck her — the manufacturer of the gun used in the shooting was based in Connecticut.
The Norwalk resident was “horrified” to learn that the maker of the AR-556 rifle used by Devin Patrick Kelley to spray bullets at church goers at First Baptist Church in a quiet Texas town in early November was headquartered in the state she’d lived in her whole life.
“It’s a little secret, it’s off the side street. Nobody even really knows about it,” Bisceglie said Sturm, Ruger & Co., which is based in Fairfield’s Southport section.
She coordinated with New York-based Gays Against Guns to organize a protest on Sunday against Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc. Bisceglie and about 15 other people from New York and Connecticut dressed up in red and green Christmas attire and marched through downtown Fairfield to the firearm company’s headquarters in Southport. They carried signs that read “Sturm, Ruger makes massacre weapons” and chanted “Sturm, Ruger is worse than Freddy Krueger.”
