The Marblehead Democratic Committee will host Marblehead Police Chief Dennis King on Monday for a discussion of the impact on local gun laws resulting from the Supreme Court decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen.

King, a member of the Marblehead Task Force Against Discrimination, will also discuss a recent uptick in hate incidents and hate crimes. The discussion will also include a conversation about the Police Department’s new mental health clinician, hired to support officers.

The discussion will be held on Zoom at 7 p.m. The Zoom link is available on the Democratic Committee’s website.

The committee is chaired by Kathy Hempel, and Terri Tauro, a former candidate for the Eighth Essex District state representative seat, serves as chair of the communications committee.
