Connecticut –-( The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (The state’s largest grass roots gun rights group) comments on the Gubernatorial/Electoral outcome in Connecticut.

Comments from CCDL President Scott Wilson:

“While the overall campaign theme of this election has been centered around our State’s economy and financial woes, citizens that own firearms showed up and voted like never before”.

“In spite of the the results, we are proud that our members and other gun owners put forth a tremendous effort to protect their constitutional rights. In particular, we are happy about some of the house races and victories for other 2nd Amendment candidates”.

“CCDL thanks it’s members for all of their hard work and efforts in his election. We will continue to work on firearms issues throughout Connecticut as is usual”.

One critical point that the CCDL president noted was the fact that Malloy lost in Newtown:

“We could not be happier that the majority of Newtown residents did not buy into Governor Malloy’s gun control schemes. Malloy lost Newtown”. – Scott Wilson

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 16.000 members across the state.

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.

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. For more information on the CCDL please visit
