Chatham Township Committee Member Gallop Asks for Gun Ban

Chatham Township Committee member Robert Gallop proposes a gun ban on public property for Chatham Township Credits: TAP Chatham

CHATHAM, NJ - In response to the shootings in Oregon, Chatham Township Committee member Robert Gallop asked committee members to consider a gun ban in public at the regular meeting of the towship committee held Thursday night.

The committee did not take any action at the meeting on the proposal. Albert Cruz, township attorney, was asked to look into the legal aspects of such a ban. Gallop compared it to a public smoking ban previously adopted.

"I was thinking about it over the weekend and you always feel you can do more when you hear about these tragedies," Gallop said. "This could be one small step we can take."
