Vote Today!

Go out and vote today. Your gun rights depend on it!
Remember, in the next 4yrs there is a good chance the President will appoint 1-3 new Supreme Court justices. Also remember that the DC and Chicago court cases that were so important to your gun rights were both won by only one vote. Which president would YOU like deciding the next challenge to our rights?

On a state level, legislators like Rob Sampson have worked hard to protect and expand our rights. We need to elect more people like him.

Even on a local level, CCDL needs pro gun rights people in office, on committees, and sitting on local boards.

There is a surprising amount of gun owners here in CT, 10s of thousands more just in the last year. If all of us voted for candidates on every level that support our gun rights, we’d be able to easily restore all our gun rights.

Remember to check our list of CCDL endorsed candidates before you vote, and if you don’t know where to vote you can check the CT Secretary Of State’s website. If you were in an area hit hard by the recent hurricane, you might even want to double check with your town’s registrar of voters to make sure your polling place hasn’t been temporarily moved. I know Bridgeport and New London both have had to move polling places, other towns may have as well.
