Groton, CT –-(Ammoland.com)- The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (The states largest grass roots gun rights group) Has publicly expressed sorrow and grief for the families and victims of the Newtown Murders that took place back in December.
CCDL President, Scott Wilson, also had this to say: “We, as law abiding gun owners have endured the same grief as our fellow citizens of Connecticut just like everyone else.
During the past several few weeks, lawful gun owners have been both vilified and ostracized by certain media outlets, certain politicians and many organizations that stand in opposition to the 2nd amendment of the Bill of Rights. We now look ahead with clear conviction that, we who lawfully possess firearms, will not allow ourselves to be labeled as criminals or fringe type characters that are in any way harmful to society.
Gun ownership has been on the rise throughout the state and the whole country for years, and will continue to do so. We have the right to protect ourselves and our families from crime, and we stand firmly behind this belief. With this belief comes the ability to exercise our rights without fear of reprisal”.
CCDL members are preparing to stand behind their 2nd amendment rights, by contacting their elected officials, preparing for public hearings, and by working with those within our community to propose real solutions to safeguarding our children.
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 2,600 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.
