Press Release – RE: Toni Boucher For Governor

Groton, CT August 27th, 2013

The President for the Connecticut Citizens Defense League (The state’s largest grass-roots 2nd Amendment rights group) offered comments on an exploratory gubernatorial run by state Senate Toni Boucher.

CCDL President Scott Wilson stated the following: “Senator Boucher Voted in ‘lock step’ with the Republican leadership in the passage of a historic gun control law which alienated many law-abiding people”.

“With very little consideration to the several hundred thousand gun owners in Connecticut, it is hard to fathom anyone who voted for Senate Bill 1160 could consider a legitimate run for higher office in this state”.

“Very simply, gun owners have had it with these law makers”.

The CCDL President went on to state that they would work hard to call out and expose those that voted for the law’s passage from both parties.

Press Release On Senator McKinney Gubernatorial Run

Groton, CT July 23rd, 2013

The President for the Connecticut Citizens Defense League (The state’s largest grass roots gun rights group) offers comments on a gubernatorial run by Senate minority leader John McKinney.

CCDL President Scott Wilson: “Senator McKinney was instrumental in implementing a historic gun control law with zero consideration for the constitutional rights of law abiding gun owners. With his deliberate act of siding with gun control supporters, there will be no support from CCDL for his run”.

The CCDL President also stated that other elected officials who went along with the Senate leader and voted in favor of the gun control law, could expect the same from the organization.
