CCDL holds its monthly general membership meeting at 7pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Elks Lodge in Middletown, CT. Our next meeting is Tuesday, January 13, 2015.
All CCDL members are welcome and encouraged to attend. We have a request from the property owners to please do not park on the grass when attending the meeting.
Attorney Dave Thompson
Dave Thompson will be coming up from Washington, DC to attend our meeting, where he will share his thoughts on the case and answer questions from members. If you haven’t made it to a meeting in a while, you’ll want to attend this one.
Also, remember this legal challenge is far from over. Even if we prevail here, the state is sure to appeal. If you can, please donate to our legal fund. 100% of the donations go to this lawsuit. DONATE HERE

First Gun Bill Out for 2015
Proposed H.B. No. 5069 REP. FRITZ, 90th DIST. ‘AN ACT CONCERNING THE REMOVAL OF WEAPONS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ISSUANCE OF A TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER’, to reduce domestic violence.
This is a bill that will allow for the confiscation of firearms even before you have a hearing conducted by a judge. Typically in cases where there is no record of violence or criminality, if an ‘ex parte‘ restraining order is served to an individual, you are afforded a hearing to determine if a full restraining order should be issued.
If HB 5069 were to become law, then firearms owned by persons with even a temporary restraining order will be confiscated immediately. It is important to note this:
2014 CT stats: 4,409 temporary restraining orders were issued without a hearing. In 45% (2,445) of those cases a judge ruled the circumstances did not merit a restraining order after the hearing.
We sell CCDL merchandise at the meeting, buy it there and save on shipping.
We also sell the limited edition items below that are not available in our online store.
The return of the CCDL logo magnets. These are about the same size as our regular decals, but printed on a flexible magnetic material and are perfect for people who don’t want to permanently attach a vinyl decal to their vehicle. Priced at $5 each and sold at the meeting only.
CCDL collects canned goods/non-perishables at all our meetings to be donated to local charities. The holiday season may be over, but people still need to eat. Please bring non perishables to the meeting. If everyone that attends brought at least one canned good we would be helping to feed MANY!
