Over a thousand gun rights supporters brave the cold to gather at the Capitol.

Hartford, Connecticut --( Connecticut Carry attended the Guns Across America rally in Hartford on 1/19/2012 along with at least a thousand other pro-gun Connecticut residents.

It was encouraging to see people come out and show their support for gun rights as well as their opposition to the new proposed gun control bills.

The rally was organized by individuals through a Facebook page and other social media formats.

With this example of what may be accomplished through a simple Facebook page and grassroots activism, there is a lot of hope for the efforts of Connecticut’s state level organizations throughout this legislative session.

The media was also in attendance. Although the legislators were away enjoying their weekends, one of the Senators stopped by. Senator Bye stood in the back of the crowd looking uninterested and rolling her eyes at some of the speakers and the cheering crowds when she wasn’t staring down into her phone. Our hope is that at least a little of the spirit and some of the message sank in with Senator Bye.

Senator Bye is the proponent of two bills “To require firearm owners to maintain liability insurance and establish a sales tax on the sale of ammunition at a rate of fifty per cent” (HB-5268 & SB-140 ). Such bigotry is shocking, but seems to be the norm with our current legislators.

Connecticut Carry urges our members and Connecticut residents to keep the momentum rolling. Don’t stop now by assuming that a rally was enough to defeat the proposed bills. It is still as important as ever to write to your legislators in opposition to these laws. It is extremely important to attend the public hearings at the Legislative Office Building and testify, whether you do so orally in person or by submitting written testimony.
