Press Release – Rally For Our Rights

For Immediate Release:

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (the state’s largest grass-roots gun rights group) announces the ‘Rally for Our Rights’ event at the State Capitol in Hartford. The event will take place on April 14th starting at 11:00am and will finish at 1:00pm. The event will include an opening ceremony, guest speakers and a patriotic atmosphere.

CCDL President Scott Wilson:
“We have seen the recent push to raise the age limit for owning firearms, and even more boldly, hearing them calling for a repeal of the 2nd Amendment. We have witnessed the aftermath of what continually occurs in gun free zones. The only solution being offered by most policy makers is to eradicate constitutionally protected rights our nation was founded on. We have watched as law-abiding individuals have become vilified simply because they wish to have the means for self-protection. This is why we are rallying. Those who support our rights will not simply sit back and let those very rights be trampled on.”

“CCDL asks that all who believe in the right to keep and bear arms to Rally for our Rights on April 14th in Hartford at our family friendly event.”
About the CCDL: The Connecticut Citizens Defense League was formed in 2009 by a small group of concerned citizens as a non-partisan organization to advocate second amendment rights in the state of Connecticut. Since their founding, the group has grown to over 30.000 members across the state.

Thanks to this large supportive base across the state the CCDL has become a fixture of the capitol, and well recognized by committees that see firearms related bills.

As the go-to organization in the state they are consulted regularly by lawmakers who have questions and concerns about pending legislation or existing laws. For more information on the CCDL please visit

It’s Time To Rally!

Are you ready for a 2A Rally?
It’s time to remind the gun-grabbers that we’re still here, and we still VOTE.

If you have been outraged by anti-gun propaganda rallies and blatant calls to repeal the 2nd Amendment, then this rally is your chance to speak out against those who would take your rights.
Let’s swarm the Capitol grounds, and show this state that we will not give up our rights quietly.

DATE: Saturday, April 14, 2018
TIME: 11am until 1pm (or later)
PLACE: Connecticut State Capitol, 210 Capitol Ave, Hartford

It will once again be at the State Capitol, north side facing Bushnell Park. All lawful forms of carry are permitted on the Capitol grounds, but remember Bushnell Park is a so-called “Gun Free Zone“.

More info coming soon, as final details get hammered out.
