With passage of the resolution, Chatham adds its name to the list of municipalities statewide calling for repeal or review of the gun control law adopted by the state legislature in January. A copy of the resolution will be sent to the governor and to Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin and state Senator Kathy Marchione, among others. Read the full story in the Columbia Paper.
