Huntington's town board gave out firearms at its meeting Wednesday night.

Some time after World War II, the military donated several small-caliber rifles to the town for use in a shooting range. The range closed years ago and the town recently decided to donate the rifles to local veterans groups for display and demonstration purposes. The rifles were presented at the very beginning of Wednesday's meeting, where the only shots fired were verbal ones about the budget and zoning.
