Hands-On Campaign Workshop

Gun control groups are marching on. They are using anti-gun politicians to infringe on our rights. The only way to stop attacks on the 2nd Amendment is to help Pro2A candidates win in 2018. While most gun owners wish to be left alone, the anti-gun crowd will not cease in their efforts.

CCDL members are invited to participate in this FREE hands-on workshop to gain the necessary knowledge to become active in fighting the anti-gun machine. Following the workshop, you will have the opportunity to put what you’ve just learned to good use. You will be able to assist CCDL’s 2017 Legislator Of The Year, state rep Melissa Ziobron get elected to the senate, where she can be an even stronger voice in Hartford for CCDL members.

Where: Regional Headquarters105 Elm St, Old Saybrook, CT 06475-4107
When: Monday, August 27th from 6:00pm until 8:00pm
Agenda:

  • Basics of Campaign Strategies
  • Importance of Your Involvement
  • What Gun Control Groups and sympathizers are doing
  • Examples of Effective Victories from Our Side
  • Q&A

2A candidates need our help!

One of the biggest concerns many legislators have is who will be there to help them win re-election if they vote with us. Too often we hear about how gun-grabbing politicians have people working on their campaigns. If we are going to stop this, like it or not we need to become more political than we have been in the past. While we have a positive track record on some campaigns, we will need more successes.

Please join us in helping the Pro2A movement win in 2018.
Help good candidates win this year.

Hint For Tracking CT Bills

For those who have missed CCDL’s prior Legislative Training Classes, here’s a quick tip for keeping track of all the various House and Senate bills as they come out. The CT General Assembly website has a Bill Tracking feature located in the upper right hand corner of the page.

Click that and follow the directions to create an account there. Keep in mind the email address you give will be used to send you any updates to the bills you track.

After that you will see a fairly self-explanatory page where you can enter a bill in the “Add Bill Number” box (for example SB42) then click the “track” button. Add all the bills as we post them, and when they get updated you should get an email. Sometimes the email doesn’t work, so I like to go back and check for myself every few days. Just go back to the CGA website and click the “Bill Tracking” button and log in. Then use the “Bill Listing Report” button at the bottom of the page and it will give you links to all the bills you are tracking.

Legislative Testimony Workshop #2

Just in case you were not able to attend our last Free Legislative Testimony Workshop, we will be offering it again Tuesday, December 11th during our monthly general membership meeting. We will have an abbreviated meeting to accommodate the training workshop. This workshop will help you prepare for the upcoming legislative session. This will be our last workshop before the session begins January 9th. You can be certain there will be numerous anti-gun bills introduced this session. We will need hands on activism from ALL our members to help combat an emboldened anti-gun sentiment that is held by certain legislators and bureaucratic appointees within the state government.

Once again this workshop is free of charge and open to all members of the public. We will also be offering some light refreshments. This course is of use to ANYONE who cherishes freedom and liberty; not just gun owners. Read the post about the previous workshop to see what we’ll be covering.

To paraphrase a famous quote; the only thing needed for bad laws to pass is for good people to do nothing.

Middletown Elks Club
44 Maynard St
Middletown, CT 06457

This is our General Meeting with a modified format and as always this is open to the public. Please park in the event lot to the left of the building (looking at it from Maynard) and enter from the left rear of the building.
