How it Works
Voting is the BEST and EASIEST way to protect your rights. Electing candidates that support the right to keep and bear arms makes all our jobs easier when it comes to the constant fight we have in Hartford.
It all STARTS at the ballot box. It is not enough to just say you support gun rights – you MUST do something. Commit to voting and even better, commit to taking friends and family to the polling station and vote for CCDL Endorsed or Pro-2A Candidates.
Prior to obtaining a rating, Candidates will fall into one of two categories to determine how they are rated:
- Those who held office previously and have a voting record will be reviewed based on that voting record.
- Those without a voting record have been sent a CCDL Candidate Questionnaire to find their stance on issues that are important to CCDL and those who support our rights to self defense.
Based on the results the Candidate’s voting record or questionnaire, Candidates will receive a rating of one of the following; Endorsed, Pro2A, Unreliable, Anti2A, and Unknown. Please read on to see how a candidate can achieve each rating.
