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.

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.

Exclusive Dinner with John Bolton PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 25 June 2014 19:27

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL) has secured Ambassador John Bolton as a speaker for a small, private dinner that we are hosting at the Patterson Club in Fairfield on July 20th, 2014. This fundraising dinner is specifically designed to appeal to gun owners that are also business owners, gun manufacturers and other high-profile individuals. The event will be by invitation only and will be closed to the press. 100% of net proceeds go to the CCDL Litigation fund to fight further infringement on our Second Amendment rights.

Tickets are available for a donation of $1000 per person or $9000 for a table to ten for gun clubs and various manufacturers. There will be a cocktail hour in which people can speak with Ambassador Bolton personally and get a photograph. We also plan to have a live auction for a couple of highly collectible firearms from Colt’s Manufacturing Company and Ruger Firearms. Colt’s has generously donated a unique Colt 1911 Marine Pistol from the Colt’s Custom Shop for which they have a 5-year wait list.

Connecticut is on the front lines for gun control. If last year’s laws are allowed to stand, they will be a blueprint for further infringements on our gun rights for ALL states to follow. If you are not interested in attending, I would appreciate it if you could circulate this to some of your friends and associates that might be interested.

Please help support CCDL in fighting for YOUR Second Amendment rights!

Contact Bob Ferguson with interest.
