“We have always stated that we would follow through on this matter”. “Our constitutional rights are hanging in the balance, and we are obligated to stand up for what we know is right”.
CCDL, along with the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen and a variety of other individual plaintiffs lost on the first go around at the Connecticut Federal District Court but remain committed to utilizing all legal recourse.
About the CCDL: The Connecticut Citizens Defense League was formed in February 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 nearly 14,000 members. Thanks to this large supportive base across the state the CCDL has become a fixture of the capitol, and well recognized by committees that see firearms related bills.
CCDL is also actively involved at the state Board of Firearms Permit Examiners. As the go-to organization in the state they are consulted with regularly by lawmakers who have questions and concerns about pending legislation or existing laws.
