Our Mission Statement

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League is a non-partisan, grassroots organization devoted to advocating rights affirmed by the Constitutions of the United States of America and the State of Connecticut. We are especially dedicated to protecting the unalienable right of all citizens to keep and bear arms, for the defense of both self and state, through public enlightenment and legislative action.

We welcome anyone who believes that the defense of our constitutional rights is critical to the longevity of our freedom and to the success of this nation, and in particular that the rights to self defense and to keep and bear the arms to actualize that defense, are fundamental and undeniable.

To my fellow CCDL members -

This week we have all witnessed the horrible carnage committed by a mass murdering individual. With no respect for the lives of his victims, he went on a rampage that lasted for 10 minutes. Predictably, before all the victims were evacuated or any facts known, politicians were clamoring for more gun restrictions.

We are certain that we will be facing an untold variety of gun control proposals at the state, federal, and even local level. While we mourn for the victims of this senseless and violent act, the gun control lobby is already hard at work. They're working day and night to use this horrific event to further their agenda of restricting your rights. While we wait and see what legislators bring forth, we will undoubtedly need the effort and support or our members in the very near future.

This Tuesday evening at our monthly meeting in Middletown at 7:00pm, CCDL will take a moment of silence for those murdered and injured in Las Vegas this past week. Whether you can join us in person or not, we ask that you pause for a moment at 7:00pm in solidarity.
Come join us as we plan to continue the fight for our rights.

Scott Wilson - CCDL President
