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, the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen, Hiller Sports, MD Shooting along with several individuals have filed as Plaintiffs in a legal complaint that is intended to overturn the recent ban on guns of common use in the State of Connecticut.
This is a big day for gun owners across Connecticut!
CCDL Executive committee has been advised to not discuss the case publicly. We are also asking our members to not discuss or debate any aspect of this legal action on our Facebook page, or any other social media that may be controlled by CCDL.This is for the good of the case.
The Connecticut Citizens Defense League President, Scott Wilson, was interviewed by WTNH on Friday, April 5, 2013. He discussed the newly passed laws that have been passed by our Legislators, and the intentions of the organization to pursue litigation, the need for donations, and our upcoming rally on April 20.
"NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH) -- One group in Connecticut is now planning to take the state to court over the new gun law. The President of the Connecticut Citizens Defense League or CCDL spoke to News 8's Tina Detelj.
The fight over gun reform here in the state is far from over. Some legislators are saying the new law is just the beginning and a grass roots group is now planning to sue.
Scott Wilson of New London is the president and one of the founding members of the Connecticut Citizens Defense League.
"We're not entirely surprised that a law like this was passed. We are somewhat disappointed of course," said Wilson."

CCDL will be there alongside NRA, NSSF and CCS. Please help us fill buses to the Capitol in Hartford as we assemble in the gallery above the floor where critical votes will take place.
