Story | Nov 5, 2013 | 1:35 PMNew Haven, meet Aaron Freeman. He's a 59-year-old unemployed former pizza delivery driver and he wants to serve on your Board of Aldermen. Freeman is running as a write-in Libertarian candidate (though he hasn't paid the $425 requested by the U.S. Libertarian Party) to represent the neighborhood of Westville, and he has a solution to its epidemic of gun violence: "I see so many Second Amendment advocates who don't take inner-city children out to the rifle range," he bemoaned to the New Haven Independent, adding, "People are going to be shot less often if they are not afraid of guns. If you can't scare a person by pointing a gun at them, then you either have to fish or cut bait." In addition to teaching kids when to "fish" (e.i. shoot someone), the gun-range trips would make gun advocates "a lot of friends. It would give them better political clout." However, the free market has dictated that Freeman not carry a gun himself; he said he is "too poor" to buy one. His platform also includes the legalization of all drugs, except crack cocaine.
