Groton, CT --(Ammoland.com)- The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL) sends out their heartfelt sympathies to the victims, families,and the entire community of Newtown, CT in the wake of today’s school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
It is impossible to comprehend the full scope of this tragedy, and the lasting damage to children of such young age. You will remain in our thoughts and prayers throughout this ordeal and beyond.
CCDL President, Scott Wilson, also had this to say: “We, as law abiding gun owners abhor senseless and violent acts that harm our fellow human beings – especially innocent children.
There have been, many statements condemning firearms and gun owners as a result of this tragedy. This was an act of deranged behavior from a mentally ill individual, not of decent and law abiding people that own guns and respect life.
The members of CCDL weep with our fellow citizens of Connecticut”.
About the CCDL:
The Connecticut Citizens Defense League was formed in 2009 by a small group of concerned citizens as a non-partisan organization to advocate second amendment rights in the state of Connecticut. Since their founding, the group has grown to over 2,500 members from all walks of life. Thanks to this large support base across the state the CCDL has become a fixture of the capitol, well recognized by all committees that regularly see firearms related bills as well as the state Board of Firearms Permit Examiners. As the go-to organization in the state they are consulted regularly by lawmakers who have questions and concerns about pending legislation or existing laws. In the time since their founding not a single anti-gun bill has made it through the House or the Senate, and many of their own bills have been introduced and passed.
