A local school board member in Connecticut has resigned amid an outcry over his comment that he would observe the anniversary of the Newtown school shooting by distributing ammunition. Gregory Beck faced numerous calls for his resignation from the Board of Education in Brookfield, which borders Newtown, where 20 first-graders and six educators were killed Dec. The News-Times of Danbury reports that Beck left the board Tuesday, just two months after being elected.
