Statement From State Senator Matt Lesser Condeming Racist Flyer

Today, State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown) released the following statement condemning “Hoffman’s Guns for the Good Guys” for an offensive flyer the Newington business posted on its’ Facebook page.

“This disgusting, racist flyer in no way represents the Newington that I know and love,” said Sen.

This language is hurtful and further victimizes and ostracizes innocent people. They should apologize immediately.”
