Our Mission Statement

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League is a non-partisan, grassroots organization devoted to advocating rights affirmed by the Constitutions of the United States of America and the State of Connecticut. We are especially dedicated to protecting the unalienable right of all citizens to keep and bear arms, for the defense of both self and state, through public enlightenment and legislative action.

We welcome anyone who believes that the defense of our constitutional rights is critical to the longevity of our freedom and to the success of this nation, and in particular that the rights to self defense and to keep and bear the arms to actualize that defense, are fundamental and undeniable.

Get Out the Gun Vote!

Press Conference- October 27th 
CCDL Members- Come Join Us!

Date: 10/27/2014
Time: 9:30am
Location: Connecticut State Capitol Building in Hartford - North Side Capitol Steps

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League invites our members and supporters to a press conference, welcoming 2nd Amendment activists Timothy Knight from Colorado, and Sean Maloney from Ohio.
Both of these individuals will be here in Connecticut to help trigger the 2nd Amendment vote November 4th.

Timothy Knight was the founder of the Infamous Colorado Recall elections in 2013. Sitting Colorado state legislators were removed from office for their anti-gun votes!

Sean Maloney is an attorney, 2nd Amendment Activist and Leader of the Buckeye Firearms Association.

CCDL is pleased that they are coming to Connecticut to offer their support with their 2 day visit (October 27th and October 28th). Timothy and Sean will be very busy with guest radio spots, visits to firearms retailers, and gatherings of 2nd Amendment supporters. As their itinerary becomes available we will be posting it on our blog.

2014 CCDL Candidate Endorsements PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 29 August 2014 08:06

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League is a non-partisan, grassroots organization devoted to advocating rights affirmed by the Constitutions of the United States of America and the State of Connecticut.

As our group and our members look forward to the election this November, we are faced with a stark choice for the leadership of our State. The CCDL Executive Board votes to endorse the following candidates for office that we feel best represent the interests of Connecticut gun owners and our desire to preserve the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and Article One, Section 15 of the Connecticut State Constitution, along with the leadership abilities to move Connecticut forward. We recognize that not all members of CCDL nor all Connecticut gun owners will agree with these endorsements and we fully support everyone’s individual right to vote for the candidates of their own choosing.

After carefully considering all of these issues, the CCDL Executive Board endorses Tom Foley and Heather Somers, for the Office of Governor and Lt. Governor. Governor Dannel Malloy has a proven track record of supporting anti-rights legislation and has vilified and ostracized Connecticut gun owners throughout his term. It is time for him to be to be replaced. We strongly believe that the team of Tom Foley and Heather Somers will take Connecticut in a new direction that is so desperately needed.
We also endorse the candidates below for statewide offices and the General Assembly. As with our endorsement for Governor/Lt. Governor, we feel these candidates will help steer Connecticut in the right direction. CCDL reserves the right to endorse other candidates as they are vetted by the Executive Board.
