This is not
a rally like back in January
. We will be inside the Legislative Office Building(LOB). This is your chance to meet one on one with your local legislators and tell them you oppose further restrictions on our rights. Even if your legislator is already on our side, please come and support us. There is strength in numbers!
Please, business attire
or at least business casual
, and leave your signs and camo home. Follow the same Dos and Don’ts
you would if you were testifying. Also remember that under CT state law, weapons are not permitted in the LOB.
Several participants (CCDL, CCS and NSSF) will be coordinating with the NRA to participate and support a Lobby Day scheduled at the Legislative Office building on March 11th starting at 10:00 am till 4:00 pm.
The intent of this Lobby Day is to have our elected officials witness an overwhelming show of unity for the support of 2nd Amendment rights by citizens of Connecticut.
This event is timed to have a large turnout during the most visible day of the week at the Legislative Office Building and will show our legislators that we will not let our rights be stripped away.
The CCDL executive committee met with two NRA State Liaisons this last Monday at our executive meeting to discuss several strategies for countering anti-gun legislation. We are extremely pleased that they have taken the time to coordinate this event, and we are glad that they are on the ground fighting with us in Hartford.
CCDL is encouraging our members to attend this special event, and to seek out your legislators to discuss the issues of gun rights and the importance of protecting them. We are running out of time, so we must let our voices be heard.
We Need a Massive Turnout on This Day
