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.

CCDL Members Testifying and participating in our Events

To our fellow members and supporters

CCDL is well aware of the budget proposal by the Governor to drastically increase the fees for pistol permit applications and renewals. We are actively working on counter-proposals to help mitigate the costs that Governor Malloy has proposed.

His proposal would negatively impact Connecticut citizens who merely wish to protect themselves and their families. His plan calls to put his failed policies on the backs of Connecticut gun owners.

We will keep our members updated every step along the way
