Groton, CT -( The Connecticut Citizens Defense League offers the following statement pertaining to the armed robbery of a Post Office in West Haven, CT earlier today.

Statement from CCDL President Scott Wilson:

“This was a brazen act by individuals who obviously had no fear of being met with any opposition from the people who work in or patronize an environment where firearms are banned by federal law.  Fortunately no one was hurt in this instance, but the very fact that this happened underscores the vulnerability that every postal employee and customer faces on a daily basis.”

The CCDL President Also Stated: 

“If criminals will rob this post office in such a coordinated fashion, then why wouldn’t they go on and rob others in a similar manner? This highlights the very real fact that criminals do not follow laws or honor so-called ‘gun free zones,’ and lawmakers should re-think their views. What happened today is a real life consequence of their decision- making.”

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 22,000 members from across the state. Thanks to this large supportive base, the CCDL has become a fixture at the state 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.

The oldest federal law enforcement in the U.S. tjhe Postal Inspection Service are the leg of government that forbids this right of the 2nd amendment. They care not for employee or customer protection. Only the protection of the U.S. mails.
This protection is by camera only.

Thirty year employee!


Yes but what you don’t understand is that Politicians are above the law,so the same laws we have to abide by don’t apply to them.


As soon as it was publicized that the Post Office’s ban on weapons was certified by the Supreme Court, I predicted this happening. Criminals read newspapers too. Or more precisely, have the article read to them, but you get the point. You can bet this is going to start happening with more frequency too, as the gangs see how successful this robbery was.


Gun free zone laws passed for criminals, passed by liberal morons because they have no common sense. (Idiots no doubt.)


one more example of a government mandated Certified Defense-free Victim Zone. And the SCOTUS just recently affirmed the insanity that I, as a patron of USPS who can lawfully carry my defensive weapon everywhere else, must leave it home when I must visit the post office, as I cannot even leave it in my vehicle out in the parking lot. What sort of magic is worked when I walk across the sidewalk onto USPS property with my handgun concealed that does not happen when I walk across the sidewalk to the bank, grocery store, church, coffeehouse, doctor’s office?

Maybe it would help if they put up bigger “NO GUNS” signs. Maybe politicians should be afforded the same “protection” as USPS personnel – you know, lead by example. Wouldn’t that be a hoot!


Like I say, “What’s dumber than bringing a knife to a gunfight? Bringing a (gun-free zone) sign to a gunfight.”
