Groton, CT –-(Ammoland.com)- The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (The state's largest grass roots gun rights group) stands in opposition to Senate Bill 1160 that was signed into law today by Governor Malloy.
CCDL President Scott Wilson addressed the signing of this bill with the following statement:
“While many in our state felt the need to do something in response to the Newtown tragedy, we believe that the actions that were taken to pass this law were wrong. The new law violates our constitutional rights, along with traditions of our celebrated history of Connecticut”.
“The Connecticut Citizens Defense League stand united with the gun owners of our state, and pledge our resolve to correct this legislative travesty through litigation, or any legal avenue available”.
CCDL will be hosting a gun rights rally at the Capitol in Hartford on April 20th 213 to regroup and renew efforts to challenge this new law. Author of “More guns Less Crime” (John Lott) will be one of the keynote speakers at the event.
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 4,900+ 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.
