The 2016 Connecticut Legislative Session runs February 3rd - May 4th.

While this is a 'Short Session' with traditionally fewer bills that pertain to the 2nd Amendment, some bills usually find their way to committee. Like always, CCDL will be tracking and informing our members on any gun related bills that surface during this session. While we do send out monthly updates and other alerts, the best way to get expedient legislative updates is to subscribe to our Blog.

Current weather reports show little to no snow accumulation for most of the state, so tonight's regular monthly meeting in Middletown will go on.
