Groton, CT - December 14, 2012 - The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL) sends out their heartfelt sympathies to the victims, families,and the entire community of Newtown, CT in the wake of today's school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It is impossible to comprehend the full scope of this tragedy, and the lasting damage to children of such young age. You will remain in our thoughts and prayers throughout this ordeal and beyond.
CCDL President, Scott Wilson, also had this to say: "We, as law abiding gun owners abhor senseless and violent acts that harm our fellow human beings - especially innocent children. There have been, many statements condemning firearms and gun owners as a result of this tragedy. This was an act of deranged behavior from a mentally ill individual, not of decent and law abiding people that own guns and respect life. The members of CCDL weep with our fellow citizens of Connecticut".
