2019 was an eventful year for CCDL. It marked the end of an incredible decade of growth for the organization from just a few concerned residents around a table to a remarkable membership of 35,000. There are not words enough to thank Scott Wilson, all the founding members, committee members and volunteers throughout the past decade for their hard work and dedication. Their commitment to our cause laid the foundation for the next leadership team to continue to strengthen the organization in exciting new ways to come in 2020.

This year also marks the beginning of CCDL’s Outreach Program which will make our organization more successful in protecting the rights of Connecticut citizens by better leveraging our greatest strength - our members. We encourage all members to get to know our Outreach organizers and be involved in gun rights issues in your hometown.

Looking back, below is a recap of some of the activities that happened during 2019.

The November 8th election is an important one for gun owners, especially here in Connecticut. It is imperative that all CCDL members and supporters vote for pro2A candidates in this election. This election is so important, that WE HAVE CANCELLED OUR NOVEMBER 8th MEETING. We ask that our members use the time they would have spent attending the meeting to help out one of our endorsed candidates instead.

There are also still plenty of opportunities to help pro2A candidates get elected. Candidates still need people to help wave signs, work the polls, and various other last minute tasks that can mean the difference between winning and losing. Check out CCDL's list of endorsed candidates, find one or two in your town or close by, and volunteer to help. It's fun, it's easy, and it's great being around like-minded people. Be sure to tell them CCDL sent you!
