    Sad news for CT gun owners and for ALL gunowners across the nation




    Bruce E. Stern, devoted husband of 36 years to Judi, proud father of Marin and Gregory and brother to Eileen passed away Wednesday, July 18, 2007. He was 64. A lifelong resident of the Bridgeport and Trumbull area, he was a practicing attorney for almost 40 years. He served the Town of Trumbull for 14 years as Town Treasurer and was Chairman of the Trumbull Library Expansion Committee. At the time of his passing, he sat on the Board of Directors of the National Rifle association for 11 years. Mr. Stern graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1964 and earned his J.D. at NYU followed by his Masters at the University of Bridgeport. A Captain in the U.S. Army, Mr. Stern was a Vietnam veteran and member of American Legion Post 141. His passion for firearms and gun owners' rights was evident in his lifetime memberships in the Ye Connecticut Gun Guild, Forks of the Delaware Historical Arms Society, Inc., Stratford Gun Collectors' Association, Inc., Ohio Gun Collectors' Association and the National Rifle Association. He was founder and president of the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen. Other hobbies included photography and traveling the globe. Constantly seeking the perfect shot, his photos both adorned office and home. A man of his word, he touched the lives of everyone he met. His work ethic, morality and tireless ambition drove his daily life and his loyalty to his friends and family was met with uncommon reciprocation. There will be no calling hours and services will be private. The Abraham L. Green and Son Funeral Home is in care of the arrangements.

    Bruce and a FEW others made it POSSIBLE for us in Connecticut, to continue to own, carry, and enjoy shooting firearms.

    Without Bruce (and Bob Crook, and Ray Hanley and a handful of others) CT would have had : a CA part 2 AW ban in 2001; a virtual negation of using carry permits on a practical basis in 1998; Bruce helped us beat Gun Clubs SUED for noise - 1998 "Range Protection Act" ;without which would have meant NO TRAP OR SKEET OR SPORTING CLAYS - those of you out there who don't "care" about "AR-15s". In fact, the Metacon club in Avon, CT and the Ledyard Sportsmen's club in eastern CT are under litigation now over "safety" concerns from stray rounds that were proven to have NOT come from the club grounds.

    We will try to continue the good fight.
