DANBURY – The Democrat trying to unseat the city’s longest-serving mayor says Republican Mark Boughton should join 250 other mayors who are calling on the Senate to pass stricter gun background checks.

“Connecticut is a leader on gun safety legislation, and our laws are models for the nation that Congress should adopt,” said Chris Setaro, a former City Council president trying to deny Boughton a record 10th term in office in November. “Every mayor should sign this letter and send a strong signal that we need federal action now.”
