Newtown, Conn. Police Chief Michael Kehoe asked the town council this fall for new regulations to require that all shooting ranges and firearms used at those ranges be approved by the police.
Kehoe also wanted to limit hours when people could fire guns for recreational use.
The proposals were tabled because of fierce opposition, including opposition from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, one of the nation’s most powerful pro-gun lobby groups, which has its home in Newtown.
