Newtown Action Alliance (NAA) will hold a rally outside the headquarters of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), 11 Mile Hill Road, Newtown, on Tuesday, January 20, at 4:15 pm, “to expose the gun industry’s shameful record of selling military-style assault rifles that are routinely used in mass shootings, while at the same time it opposes gun safety laws and policies,” according to the announcement of the event released earlier this week. Organizers are encouraging members of the community to attend.
