Sandy Hook Commission

Dan Malloy’s Sandy Hook Advisory Commission met today to finalize their recommendations for their final report due to be released within the next 4 weeks. The timing of the report is to allow the legislature to act upon its recommendations.

The commission has decided that they are going to recommend a full and total ban on all magazines capable of holding over ten rounds, AND a ban on any firearm capable of firing over 10 rounds. They will also be recommending NO grandfather clause. Essentially this will amount to a ban on virtually ALL magazine-fed firearms, since they are all capable of firing over 10 rounds. With no grandfather clause lawful citizens will have to either turn in guns and magazines that may be worth thousands of dollars each, likely with no compensation, or become criminals in the eyes of the state. Of course, the real criminals are not going to turn in their firearms and magazines. Only the law-abiding citizens will be deprived of their property, and deprived of an effective and constitutionally protected means of self-defense.

Lastly, the commission will be asking that their recommendations be implemented on a national basis, not just here in Connecticut.

CCDL will of course be waiting for the final report, and we will continue to alert our members of any pending gun legislation.

Remember, CCDL is already spearheading a federal challenge to Malloy’s unconstitutional gun laws. As a free to join, all volunteer non-profit organization, everything we do is with your help. We’re hoping to take our case all the way to the US Supreme Court, but that costs money. Lots of it. Please consider a donation to our litigation fund, to protect your rights and the rights of future generations. These laws are a cancer, and cancer spreads. As you read above, Malloy’s Sandy Hook Commission wants their gun bans to expand nationwide. Malloy and the antigunners have billionaires like Bloomburg and Soros to help get their way, we have you and the Constitution. Donate today!

Bob Crook Update

As many of you know, Bob Crook (head of the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen, which is also a plaintiff along with CCDL in in the lawsuit to overturn CT’s unconstitutional gun laws) suffered a minor stroke shortly after Christmas. He was rushed to Yale New Haven Hospital via ambulance. Bob has been rehabbing at Gaylord Hospital in Wallingford since the 30th. He is expected to leave and be home with family on January 20th. The stroke left him with limited control of his left extremities, however his family believes he will make a full recovery. He is in wonderful spirits and looks forward to going back up to Hartford.
Meanwhile his son James Crook has taken over the reins of CCS. We wish James well, he’s got some mighty big shoes to fill; and we look forward seeing both he and his father in Hartford as they fight side by side with CCDL for YOUR rights.

Repost – Blog Updates By Email

Since this was mentioned at the meeting last night, I’m going to repeat a few old blog posts for the new members and also as a refresher for the older members. First up is how to subscribe to these blog updates by email.

CCDL usually sends out 1-2 emails a month to keep our members updated on what’s going on with the organization and our gun rights. With the political climate the way it is, things sometimes happen far too fast to wait for a monthly email. A good way to stay up to date with everything happening is to subscribe to this blog. Just look down the right side of the blog home page (http://ccdl.us/blog/) and you will see a place to enter your email address. It looks like this:

Simply enter your email address and press the subscribe button.
You will then get a confirmation email from “CCDL Blog”. Open that email and press the Confirm Follow button. Now you will get an email when there is a new post here. Don’t worry, if you ever change your mind, every email has a link to unsubscribe.

One last thing, if you are active on Facebook, besides the Official CCDL page, there is also a CCDL discussion group. It’s a good place to interact with fellow CCDL members.
