For Immediate Release:
(Groton, CT) – The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (The state’s largest gun rights organization) issues the following statement on HB6200 – “AN ACT CONCERNING THE PRESENTATION OF A PERMIT TO CARRY A PISTOL OR REVOLVER”
Statement from CCDL President Scott Wilson:
“CCDL is pleased that HB6200 appears to be dead at this stage of the game. This bill was not only an unnecessary intrusion, it was advertised as something that is it was not.”
“The usual gun control proponents have for 2 years now failed to convince two different committees that there really is a need for what they’ve sought. We really appreciate the hard work of our members to help stop this bill. We could not have done this without the time and effort that they have dedicated.”
“Hopefully as time passes, our legislators will understand more about the issues that plague society, and start addressing the root causes of violence with real solutions.”
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 27,000 members from across the state.
Thanks to this large supportive base, the CCDL has become a fixture at the state 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: http://www.ccdl.us
