Revolt in progress inside CT. Bar Association over support of post-Sandy Hook gun laws

• The Hartford Courant
So intractable is the disagreement that, for the first time in recent memory, the rank and file is forcing a referendum among the organization's 9,000 or so members in an attempt to reverse a decision by the leadership to support the Malloy administration's defense of the law in court."There are many members who have sincere, different political views," Droney wrote to association President Mark Dubois. "Will the house of delegates now take active positions on abortion, rec pot, immigration, gay/transgender rights, foreign policy, school meals and or income inequality? Where will this end? Whose idea is this? We are lawyers who should respect all points of view and leave the politics and/or 'nanny state' activity to other organizations with a political agenda. The bar association is not running for office. Please put a stop to this foolish and aggravating adventure."
